I did, in an earlier post...this one got screwed up. Here it is again.

This program,"Desktop Takeover" is supposed to be FREE, but the developer has rigged it to self expire so they can sell a new version. When you click on trying the new version, its not free anymore.

If you uninstall the new version and try to reinstall the FREE one, it wont let you. The developer has embedded code in your registry preventing you from doing so.

Also, they have embedded code in registry to hijack your browser. That means, your browser will always go to their web page when you open your browser.

These unethical practices are unacceptable and should not be tolerated by anyone. These practices of controlling someone's computer so they can not reinstall something that was free or where their browser is redirected without them being able to stop this action, is irresponsible and an infringement on personal property.

Do not download this if you want to keep your computer safe from this developers mischief!!

The software does not work because it is an expired beta. There is a link to the full non-beta release on the site. The software uses registry in a very standard way and there is nothing in it that does not get removed during un-install. The software is safe.
