    1. @Ruchir,
      What is that superfast.exe and how is it related to this tool? I have scanned it trhough multiple AV and none of them detected it as malware. I doubt the site itself reported it wrongly

      1. The point Mr. Nirmal is that although not related to this app,the INTENTION of developer.If the other app is a trojan not this,can he be really intelligent?Never.This even if safe is sure to be buggy,risky etc until one person really benefits.And such evil(if) persons should be boycotted and condemned for writing a single malaware.

        I hope you agree with above.Main ques. is he is a noble soul like you.I am one of your biggest fans.Or the opposite developer is.
        SuperFast Shutdown Is No Longer Available On Our Site.

        We no longer distribute SuperFast Shutdown due to a high false positive ratio from anti-virus vendors.

        Please feel free to browse our site and try our other software titles

        I was right,this was always considered a malaware and now it is removed.The only point is whether that soft which had to be removed since many AVs detected it,whether all were false.Still available at Simtel.If 10 detect out of 42,I cannot make a judgement but will be away from this.There are many methods to achieve what this app does same result.
        Your blog is one of the very best,I repeat.Thx
