    Beware of Digital Video Repair – it admits to installing a piece of spyware called RelevantKnowledge while installing itself. I refuse to voluntarily install such a thing on my computer so I don’t know if its claim about being able to be uninstalled separately is true, but based on past experience, probably not.
