  11. Does this work for a photoshop extensions(plugins) like coolorus?

  12. My AVIRA antivirus is detecting this as a virus and keeps blocking it. It defines it as (iBryte.Gen7) virus.

    Also, why in their homepage: if u want to download, u have to specify your browser and so the download differs in respect to your browser. That is suspicious!! What is their business with my browser, if they are not malware who tries to send my private info or maybe even a trojan???

  13. Hi, i tries everything but did not succeed in deleting I render NXT 6.0! any idea?

  14. So I backed up my registry before I installed the software I want to use. After the trial expired I then restored registry to previous state(before software was installed). However, it still says your trial version expired and you will need serial to continue.

    Well, I like the software A LOT but I am not going to buy it because it cost $2,000 USD per year! SO, how can I narrow it down to which other folders need to be deleted in order to reinstate trial?
