The actual program looks like it might work, but wading through a 'crap hitting the fan' problem to know for sure.
1. Will install a josey virus in your system32 windows directory. 2. Will install an unwanted and unsecure gadget on your desktop and taskbar. 3. Will hijack your browser.
Hey CNET, it was a good long ride for so many years I've lost count...but it's over.
Easy to use but that's about it.
Totally unreliable and inconsistent.
I have cable internet. I opened the program, ran the test, and got 9.71 mps. Thought that was low so I ran it again and got 13.72 mps.
Over the next couple of minutes ran it several times and got readings of 19.14, 17.60, 19.47, 22.41.
It seems as long as I keep the program open I get higher readings after the first low reading.
But when I close the program and reopen it I get a reading of under 10 mps and subsequent readings range from low teens to low twenties.
Small download, few buttons so you can't get lost. Simply does what it needs to.
The Ask Expert button goes to a website that isn't working, but that's somewhat expected on a program that's 5 years old.
Simple to use and returns clear results.
When unzipped creates a file called InstantHelp which is confusing. You can create a shortcut for the desktop but why isn't one included. As with many of these speed test software 'how accurate are the results'. This one seems to give conservative results ie a bit on the low side compared to others.
If you want an easy to use speed test to put on your desktop you could do a lot worse. I use it to give me quick results but if it shows slow speeds I then check these with another speed tester.
I have no pros to list!
Cons are that I wasn't told whether my rating was good or bad!
It was fast at giving the calculation. I just didn't know what it meant. There were no recommendations one way or the other, either!
A no brainer.
Does the simple speed tests simply.
too simple and clunky. Not much even for free.
Just the basic facts.
very neat and accurate
nothing to say
i have nothing special to say
Ran scans quickly with no problems. During first boot I was able to select what I wanted to open files with. I set it Firefox and it just opened my results in a tab for me.
None that I've found.
