Whether you check the box to not install the Casino software or not, it installs an "installer" program at c:/windows/ConfigSys and does a registry edit that causes an ad to pop up for the casino software about 10 min after you start your computer every time. And their support was very rude in there response to this. Wouldn't recomment this.
If you have any of the files related to ConfigSys on your system,
please send them
for additional analysis. Generally, I have only analysed a
few versions for each software component listed at this web site. With your help I
will be able to look at both old and more recent versions of the ConfigSys software.
Thank you very much for your time!
