"Good prank"

April 01, 2007  |  By ExtremeDownloader

 |  Version: Avoid 1.0

Pros

It is very useful in creating funny screenshots. Good for pranking anyone any day.

Cons

The Start button looks extremely tiny when restored in Windows XP (with visual themes). This can be solved by hiding the taskbar and unhiding it or restarting the computer.

The program can be ended via Task Manager, so that makes it pretty easy to quit.

"It works, unless they have anti-spyware/virus..."

March 31, 2007  |  By ale_jrb

 |  Version: Avoid 1.0

Pros

The program is funny! It really does make one laugh as it is nearly impossible to click the silly start button!

Cons

On Windows XP, the start button become much smaller that usual and looks frankly quite ugly until you restart Windows.

Also, any good anti-virus or spyware program renders it useless. I tried to run it on my home computer after downloading it... "ZoneAlarm Program Control - avoid.exe is a malicious program and was prevented from running on your computer."

"Useless..."

March 30, 2007  |  By anindya.baruah

 |  Version: Avoid 1.0

Pros

Its not that fun, cause Windows Defender detected it. However, kaspersky didn't say anything. :D

Also I am using a Window Blinds theme and it made the start button all messed up.You can still access the start menu by pressing the windows key. And pressing ALT + CTRL + DEL returned the start button to normal position and you can also end the avoid.exe process from there. So its quite useless in my opinion.
