    Thoughts on "Popcorn Time" Malware, system changes, worthwhile etc

    Thoughts on "Popcorn Time" Malware, system changes, worthwhile etc....I installed on my Win 7 64, no problems yet but I allowed it to make a lot of changes. Feeling a little queasy, wonder if I should uninstall with Revo and restore to a before time to be sure I did not mess up or am I being overly nervous? Appreciate any thoughts on this subject, thanks...

    Netflix for pirates?

    The legality of Popcorn Time is unclear; its website claimed that the software "might" be illegal depending on local laws.

    This YT will show you how to remove it but you'll probably have to use the Pause & Play to note each step https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZCgUBIfS3I although prevention is usually better than cure and using your restore points to before you installed it may be an easier route.
