A google search for 'media finder' gives me results for at a quick glance 8 different products. Can you be more specific?

It also gives me over 1000 hits for media finder virus.

Define safe.

Is anything on the Internet "safe"?
Not really.

800 bucks for 6 months?
Yikes!

If i am looking at the right program that is.
In the beginning there was the command line.

FWIW: my ESET Security won't allow the site to load. I get numerous warnings like I've never seen before. And in my capacity as an admin for this site I'm always verifying risky links for the safety of our members. Never had ESET go this crazy.

I would not recommend that site or application to anyone. I can't even get AVG's LinkScanner Online to scan the URL without an ESET alert.

Hi
I have been wrestling with Media Finder Virus since a few days.
It even stopped me downloading AWD cleaner. I found an old copy I made of AWD. When I finaly got it to work it removed the beast in a couple of minutes.
