$19.99 Subscription (what am I getting??)
« on: April 27, 2019, 06:52:11 PM »
Recently purchased the $19.99 (1) year subscription.  Ran the Smart Scan, found issues, tried to resolve, but it is asking me to pay for another subscription (approx $35 per year) to fix these issues.  What?!

What the hell did I pay for?  The $19.99 subscription doesn't seem to do anything.

The ads aren't my problem.  The problem is that even with the paid subscription it's asking me to pay more to fix the issues. 
Anyone have any idea if this is correct?
