McAfee® Web Boost has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.
Only works correctly when it wants too. On various different websites videos play even though I have it set with access to all websites. It's frustrating because I have to pause the videos and sometimes multiple vids on single site.
Web Boost installed automatically. It also prevented iHeart radio from playing, even when I selected the play button for audio! I turned off web boost and now I can listen to music again! I hope turning it off doesn't create other problems as I am not very computer savvy.
