A word of caution. users of PC tools SD version 5 are having considerable problems with this updated version.click here

I have posted a link to it on my website, but it's such a clunker next update I'm removing it.

Sorry to hijack thread, but in view of above comments, I too have had problems with SD ver 5 and have uninstalled it and use another product. If you look at the link to the PCTools forum as shown by Probabilitydrive, I have had same problems when closing down SD screen. Their Help Desk Tech Support was no help !
