Die Software wurde mit einem LogiLink Hardware Produkt geliefert. Auf der CD war die Version PCClone Ex Lite+ 2.00.05. Auf meinem neu installierten Vista System könnte der Autostart beim Hochfahren von Windows nicht deaktiviert werden.die Software kann bis jetzt nicht deinstalliert werden. Uninstall Failed ist und war auch die Fehlermeldung nach der Systemwiederherstellung. Ich rate von der Software ab da sie sich uns Betriebssystem ein zu Fressen scheint. Mein nächster Versuch wird die kostenlose Freeware Advanced Uninstaller Pro sein.
