"It's no longer helpful with regard to ad blocking"

March 15, 2014  |  By Domelo

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.93

Pros

Nothing favorable but devastating.

Cons

Didn't block any ads on youtube, facebook and other heavy sites. Slowed down my system and a lot more other things.

Summary

It didn't block any ads in youtube nor in facbook or any other website and started giving errors. Also, it was using higher system resources that's the reason my system slowed down to dangerour level. I'm now using adguard - adblock and am happy that it never created any issue so far.

"False advertising, misleading, barely functional."

March 06, 2014  |  By Smither10

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.93

Pros

Used to be good!

Cons

No Internet Explorer support.
No GZIP support.
No Google Support.
No support for filtering Windows 8X apps.
No HTTPS filtering

In effect a barely functional overpriced product being marketed with fraudulent claims by dishonest folks. Even the owner of AM hasn't posted on his own forum in 3 years! Their new version is totally vaporware.

Summary

Avoid this like the plague. Try Adguard!

"Terrible, don't download it!"

February 12, 2014  |  By lorryfran

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.93

Pros

None. I'm sure it comes with malware!

Cons

Doesn't work with Internet Explorer 11 and a whole lot of rubbish was downloaded with it that I found very hard to get rid of. I'm sure there is some malware that comes with it. I had to do a system recovery to get rid of most of them. Be careful downloading this program! I have since removed it eventually!

Summary

Download at your own risk!

"Problem Acknowledged, Fix Available but Withheld"

December 05, 2013  |  By StephenB427

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.93

Pros

Program, until recently, seemed to work as designed. Program easy to disable if a desire to see advertisements.

Cons

Current version (4.93.33707/4982) has a bug acknowledged by Tech Support and reportedly fixed by version 4996. However, this fix is only available to premium subscribers notwithstanding it is a "fix" and not a version with new/improved features.

Summary

Quick but unsatisfactory response by Tech Support. It seems to me that a bug fix should be provided to "all" subscribers asap.

"Dishonest company that screwed me over"

April 17, 2013  |  By MARKDHM

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.93

Pros

It worked for a while

Cons

It doesn't work now.

Summary

These people are snake oil salesmen. Do business with them at your own risk. Be smarter than me, pick an alternative.

"Past its prime for the money"

May 02, 2012  |  By Zootopia3000

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.92

Pros

Can get rid of a few ads that the free adblock and other free alternatives cannot.

Cons

Still no HTTP 1.1 support, making web browsing actually slower on a number of sites even with the ads removed. Hulu now detecting Ad Muncher and no hope of having it resolved by the Ad Muncher team. New drop down menu toolbar instead of an easy right click context menu. Recent forced beta use rather than a final version to get filters updates. Being now forced into beta for filters updates, a premium paid license instead of basic paid license is required to receive some beta updates. No other paid software provider would even think of doing this. The pricing, especially the premium pricing, is not worth the the pros listed, which amounts to one pro as you can see.

With the recent beta issue I chose to just uninstall my paid basic version of Ad Muncher. The final reply from the Ad Muncher team... "You still don't get it... Take care and so long".

Summary

If you download this software(v4.92 Final), be prepared to have to update to a beta version to receive filters updates(v4.92 Final no longer supported for filters updates), and be prepared to shell out for a premium license to receive some beta updates. The premium pricing is most definitely not worth the pros provided. A basic license? The free alternatives can do almost as good. ALSO NOTE: You have to pay for each PC use, whether it's basic or premium.

"Cnet installer an annoying useless piece of junk."

April 18, 2012  |  By ronc2

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.92

Pros

I've used Ad Muncher on other PCs and it works quite well for my purposes. I have nothing bad to say about it, it makes web browsing and reading my web-based email a much more pleasant experience.
I have to award a star to post this, but the star is for Ad Muncher, not Cnet.

Cons

The Cnet downloader came with Webroot Secure Anywhere as an optional addition. I've used Webroot products and trust them, so I clicked "agree" to install it. Without asking permission, it made a full scan of my system, found 3 instances of malware and removed them. One it considered malware was the Cnet installer. Webroot then rebooted, scanned again, found 1 more malware, removed it, scanned again foun 6 more malwares 1/2 of which were those it had removed the first two times. It removed the file I'd come to Cnet to download, I feel it did this because the installer had an .exe.exe extension, often a sign of malware. After all this, scanning/rebooting 3 times, the software I wanted from Cnet had been removed! In the future I will seek elsewhere for my software downloads, I refuse to use download.com until that irritating Installer is no longer a part of Cnet. Download.com worked quite well without that installer, and I won't visit download.com again until Cnet ceases to use it.

Summary

I've been a member of Cnet and have used download.com for many years, but the Cnet downloader is the straw that breaks this camel's back!
So long, download.com, we've had a good run, it's been good to know you, but your downloader and I simply cannot occupy the same cyberspace any longer!

"Best ad blocker out there, by far"

February 04, 2012  |  By jaa1755

 |  Version: Ad Muncher 4.92

Pros

- Works with any browser
- Blocks most video ads, including all YouTube video ads
- Relatively inexpensive
- Low memory overhead

Cons

- None, I've been using it for more than a year without a problem

Summary

Perfect program, should be much more popular than it is. Every time I get on someone else's computer that doesn't have this software, I'm amazed how much junk this program blocks.
