Editors' Review

+

With everything this free toolbar promises, the limited features it actually offers are big disappointment.

Crawler Toolbar has a pretty standard interface that includes just a handful of buttons. It has a basic search field, a keyword highlighter, some links to external sites and a number of links to add to the toolbar. It's not all that impressive. If you want to customize the toolbar, your options are to add a couple of trace cleaning tools and more links to external sites. That is if you just want what actually comes with the toolbar. Many of the features promised in Crawler Toolbar are actually items you have to install separately. These include some fairly standard fare such as a weather forecast display and RSS feeds. The extra step of installing what are referenced as services seems misleading when the publisher implies they are primary components of the toolbar.

What minimal features come with Crawler Toolbar work, but if you want everything this freeware promises on the front end, you'll have to install 11 other components.

"It PREVENTS you from going to bad websites."

November 29, 2009  |  By bdomek

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 5.1

Pros

Have been using the Crawler toolbar and McAfee Site Advisor. McAfee will warn you once you get to a website if it's bad. Crawler actually stops you before you get to the site with a big RED box giving you a choice.

Cons

There are too many add-on's included with the toolbar.

Summary

It's very good at STOPPING you from going to a bad website to start with. It pops up a big RED box that gives you the options to either go ahead and take your changes, or don't go to the site. I think everyone should use Crawler.

"It has blocked a LOT of sites that contain spyware"

October 24, 2009  |  By navywife8511

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 5.1

Pros

Even when I'm doing a simple search on Google, it will catch websites that contain spyware and warn me to either block the spyware of not go to the site.

Cons

No cons that I found yet

Summary

I love this product! I highly recommend it! Before I downloaded and started using this product, my computer was infested with spyware. After I removed all of the spyware, I started using this toolbar and it has prevented more spyware than I can count!

"Crawler Toolbar with Web Security Guard"

June 03, 2009  |  By SJSF

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 5.1

Pros

It works well on Firefox.It can block malicious content,tells you if the website you are in is suspicious and Web Security Guard's database is easy to update.I have never seen any adware or spyware from this toolbar and I have lots of anti-Malwares.

Cons

It doesn't work well in Internet Explorer 8.It sometimes causes IE8 to crash and the toolbar has problems updating,it fails to update.The toolbar is kind of useless without Web Security Guard.

Summary

Crawler Weather is a separate program from the toolbar.If you decide to install Spyware Terminator I recommend you don't use its Real-Time Shield because is too intrusive.You can easily disable Spyware Terminator's Real-Time Shield and automatic start-up so you can use it as a backup anti-malware scanner and remover.
