Lavasoft is no longer reputable.

The Company was acquired in January 2011 by the Solaria Fund, apparently a private equity fund.[3] It was soon discovered that the Fund was actually a cover-up for the entrepreneurs (Daniel Assouline and Michael Dadoun) behind UpClick and Interactive Brands.[4] SC Magazine discovered that Lavasoft had been acquired by the same entrepreneurs who have been accused of selling software that is available for free (such as the free version of AVG anti virus) to unwitting users under the guise of premium support.[5] Somewhat ironically, Assouline and Dadoun used to sell the free version of Lavasoft's security program prior to acquiring the Company itself. This has been well-documented by security consultants such as Dancho Danchev.[6]

I would stay away from them.
