      "Shop Window Software"

      September 16, 2014   |   By scofink

      Version: Remo More 1.0.0.88

      Pros

      Try before you buy. Yep, that's the good thing about it, the only one.

      Cons

      GUI looks like a child's colouring book. Inaccurate scan results. scaremongering messages. Insufficient information about "perceived threats". I cannot but warn against its use, which will lead the unwary into a falsesense of security. It is a shop window for a suite of individually packaged and priced apps. An expensive alternative to better products from other developers. Not for techies, not for savvy home users, just for the unwary and easily impressed. If you do try it you will have to seek out all traces when you uninstall it as the uninstaller is not particularly effective. A truly awful and unprofessional GUI, I tried but will not buy. Caveat emptor.

      Summary

      Do yourself a favour and get SPEEDY PC PRO, they work with Microsoft in development-and it shows.

      "Full of malware"

      September 16, 2014   |   By ricardot

      Version: Free ISO Mount 1.0

      Pros

      No pros in this software

      Cons

      Shame CNET to let this software be downloaded in your site, I lost a couple of hours uninstalling, restoring and updating my system. I first noticed when I installed it I had a "window with all the problems my laptop had" I couldn't get away I had to unninstall it, then I saw five more malware already installed, I uninstalled all of them, then I noticed that my internet wasn't working, long story short I end up restoring two times to a previous state and then updating my system.

      Summary

      It sucks!!!

      "Lies and lies"

      September 16, 2014   |   By BakHand

      Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.32705.52095

      Pros

      None, None, None.

      Cons

      Lies that I need to update my ICH7, Audio, LAN and other Drivers for my MB. I manually checked for drivers and I have all the latest drivers for my MB.

      It apparently does not consider the MB or BIOS when determining the need to update, just based on General Date. Older MBs may not be able to use newer drivers.

      Summary

      Sucks for Older MBs.

      "Great program does what it's supposed to"

      September 16, 2014   |   By Maklarreatz

      Version: GOM Audio 2.0.7.1108

      Pros

      Lightweight on older machines, high speed loading large playlists, intuitive navigational system.

      Cons

      Weird "default" audio that plays on start-up. Easy enough to get rid of by the user though.

      Summary

      I stumbled onto the GOM audio program a few weeks ago on a forum. I've used the GOM media player for years now, so I wanted to give the audio player a try too. Just like the GOM player before it, it is a no fuss, lightweight, do anything program. It'll play every format of audio I've got and thensome, starts and stops in a flash, and never once affects other programs I have running. It's designed in a way that anyone familiar with comparable programs, like Windows Media player, will be able to pick it up and go immediately without any learning curve. The only "fault" I could find was this bizarre "default" audio file it comes packaged with. Evidently it's a start-up sound akin to what WinAmp does, but it's only supposed to play once. Mine played on startup every time though, but it was easy enough to just go into the program, delete the file, and cruise on without it. GOM labs and Gretech have built an exceptional audio platform- so if you're looking to upgrade from Windows Media Player to something better and less resource-heavy, GOM has you covered.

      "Just works"

      September 16, 2014

      Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2021

      Pros

      Simple GUI
      Rather discreet

      Cons

      As a standard there is a lot of software "pre-marked" under the installation process, allthough this is not a huge deal.

      Summary

      It's free. Most people like it, but if you don't just uninstall it

      "OK if your thinking mirrors the Acronis geniuses."

      September 16, 2014   |   By moofah

      Version: Acronis True Image 2014 2014

      Pros

      Robust feature set. Helpful volunteer-run user forum.

      Cons

      Program had difficulty handling situations when the external backup drive was not constantly connected (such as during travel). Unpredictably monopolizes computing resources for hours at a time performing unnamed background tasks. Known program flaws have not been addressed.

      Summary

      Acronis has a long history in the backup software business and a helpful forum populated by experienced and enthusiastic users. However, my attempts to use their program in a fairly simple Windows 7 configuration using a laptop and an external hard drive ran into trouble. The difficulty seemed to be that the laptop was occasionally undocked and carried around.

      In addition, I could never be sure when my computer would be available for use. At unpredictable intervals the CPU resources were consumed by Acronis maintenance routines that went on for hours without any indication of when they would be completed.

      There are workarounds for these things -- some of them involving external scripts and program hacks suggested by helpful forum members. But the program itself seems bloated and buggy.

      In short, if you use your computer the way the Acronis program authors think you SHOULD be using it, things might work just fine for you. Otherwise, get set for some frustrating moments and a round of platitudes from the support staff.
