- Extract the archive to a folder of your choice.

- Settings are saved in an INI file (freeshooter.ini) inside program folder.

Free Shooter is created by the developer of Mem Reduct, which is in the database and has been discussed in the forum.
There is a untranslated into English text string- see "Settings - Action" screen-shot.
Free Shooter is most likely abandoned- the latest release (1.9.6) is from 2010.04.08, yet it runs fine on Windows 8 x64.
Forum member TP109 might be interested to test Free Shooter and include the result in his Screencapture usage tests.

I am sure that Free Shooter is harmless and that these 12 malware detections are false positives- otherwise I would not have posted about it. Anyway, use it at your own risk.
