The most trustworthy online protection
I dont get why everybody is being negative about the site since i never had any problems with it and if you get messages for rogue software just use an adblocker.

Many sites are just bogus when you try to find help for your unknown extension files. This site does exactly what I want. I can have clear and precise information at no cost whatsoever. Watch out for other sites that want you to download "help programs" or pay for information.

The affiliate relationships and/or advertising is deceptive, leading to the Uniblue scamware and what is likely a crapware toolbar without informing the reader of any ifinancial arrangements. Other sites can be used without the integrity problem.

Information about some file extensions but mostly offers software to "fix errors." Way too many ads for registry cleaners, mostly for those from UniBlue.

This site does not tell you what the extension is, rather it tries to sell you software to "fix" the bad extensions on your computer.
