    "COULD NOT INSTALL IT"

    December 13, 2010   |   By Lucien_Sabre

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    None I could see.

    Cons

    My Norton Internet Security warned me of a lowest-level trojan attached to the installation wizard.

    Summary

    When I tried to install it, my Norton Internet Security warned me of a lowest-level trojan (or malware), initialized along the installation wizard; so I stopped the wizard and didn't finish installation. o.o
    Plus (this is a rather idiotic personal reason), I find the interface quite ugly aesthetically. :P

    "NOT FREE - COMES WITH SPYWARE!"

    November 30, 2010   |   By sklt7276-2009

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    None, I don't have anything good to say about this product.

    Cons

    Everything, it's not free at all, sure you can download for free, but "YOU CAN'T USE IT"
    it ask for a registration code and $$$$$ to get one... It leaves tons of JUNK on your machine, toolbar, changes your defaults, etc., etc...

    Summary

    Don't download this, I am still cleaning up JUNK that was left behind after I removed this product several days ago.... BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT!

    "Awesome FTP Client"

    July 20, 2010   |   By dpowell7299

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    Ease of use, just a great GUI FTP Client

    Cons

    they bug you quite regularly about upgrading and at least once I was fooled into thinking it was a free upgrade and ended up having to delete it completely and reinstall the free one, losing all my FTP sites I had saved up.

    Summary

    Even with the bugging to buy it, this is the best GUI FTP Client I have used and I've been FTPing since 1981

    "So-so ftp client. There are better free ones."

    July 01, 2010   |   By linkco01

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    Handles most all major ftp functions. At least it was free.

    Cons

    Look for other ftp programs which have more functionality.

    Summary

    I guess I can't complaint too much since I didnt pay for this product.

    "Requires installation of TOOLBAR!"

    June 14, 2010   |   By jabababa

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    Well, at least it asks you if you want to install that darn thing, so I stopped the installation right there.

    Cons

    You can't install the program with installing a toolbar, suspicious.

    Summary

    I was in need of a program like this one, and when TechTracker told me there was an update available, I thought "what the heck", but now I guess I have to look for something safer. Unless you like playing hazard with your computer, keep clear away from AceFTP.

    "Excellent software"

    April 12, 2010   |   By dd64sg

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    Have to save a (free) activation key everytime i reinstall windows or buy a new computer or upgrade windows i have to hunt for this key. I am not sure if the latest version requires this registration key.

    Summary

    I have been using this software for years, it works so beautifully i have never felt the need to upgrade. I tried checking what version i have but help/about is a useless ad box that does not list the version I have. Anyway it doesn't matter, I would recommend this software to everyone. Once when I wanted to transfer 10GB of files from my linux machine to windows machine i didn't know how to connect the two, luckily this program helped me to log on to linux from windows and i was able to transfer it. Though it crashed 3 times because of such a huge load, it picked where it left off on restarting. I am sure they would have fixed that bug by now, though I still don't feel the need to upgrade.

    "No TOOLBAR!"

    March 18, 2010   |   By dirtdigr

    Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

    Pros

    I couldn't tell you as I didn't install once I came to the toolbar that you have to download! I thought this might be the one after reading CNET's review.

    Cons

    I was very disappointed about the toolbar that they force on you- and in my book that is just plain bad business

    Summary

    This software is one to stay away from because of the unwanted toolbar- sad.
