Microsoft Defender SmartScreen Won't Let Me Install Your Software

Why can't I install your software?

Microsoft Defender does a very good job keeping your computer safe. It does it's best to prevent harmful software from getting installed on your computer. However, there are times when some legitimate software products are blocked. This mainly happens because Microsoft Defender does not recognize a product as being higly used by the general public. Until Microsoft Defender sees a product as highly used, it throws up a warning to protect you and your computer. This trade-off effects small software publishers like ZilchWorks and their customers.

zilchworks.com is owned and operated by Michael J. Riley, a retired United States Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant. Riley's easy to use Zilch software has been helping people get themselves out of debt since 1991. "Zilch does one thing and does it very well, it gets you out of debt."

You'd think someone with a Finance degree would be able to avoid debt, but my husband and I hadn't avoided it. I had quit working to raise our family, and two of our children had major medical bills. We found ourselves in over $80,000 of mostly unsecured debt. I was desperate when I found ZilchWorks. Your software was like a ray of light shining in on our dark situation.

When I SAW, that we could be debt free by 2011, even though that was years away, it was just the motivation I needed. The printed reports have been vital in our success. They keep me on track when I am tempted to spend money I shouldn't be. I keep them handy so I can glance at them and remind myself where we are headed. The idea that we will have financial freedom THIS YEAR is exhilarating!

I now have the desire to help others get out of their debt situations, so I am happy to tell the world that ZilchWorks can get you there. And by the way, this is a “paid” testimony... we've been “paid” all the interest that would have been shelled out to lenders had I not found this program.

I pray we never find ourselves back in the credit card mess we were in. But if for some emergency we do, I will have the tools ZilchWorks taught me to get us out of it!
