    my advice to those who have problems with the software named CleanUp Antivirus is to keep in touch with the support center. I purchased it by the internet and received a downloadable software on my pc however it didn't work from the beginning. I tried to reinstall it numerous times but all kind of errors kept flashing up on my screen, so I called them and asked about why I had those problems...it turned out that I accidentely changed my windows system settings while trying to start the program, so the support representative provided me the information how to set up this software on my computer...finally it was installed and began working.
    Try to contact phone support: +1 888 3180062
    Good luck!
