"Don't wast your money, take your business elsewhere"

October 12, 2013  |  By DongDongDongDong

 |  Version: Desktop Shark 2.54

Pros

The software works temporarily, until you are locked out from your account and technical support refuses to assist.

Cons

Not being able to use a product you already paid for, not receiving assistance from their technical support, basically having a dishonest business like this one take your money and never help you on anything, and there's no way to even ask for a refund.

Summary

Highly disappointed with this product, I would recommend people don't engage on any sort of purchase with this dishonest vendor.

"Does what it says, but major typing lag!"

April 12, 2011  |  By ansemx324

 |  Version: Desktop Shark 2.54

Pros

Does what it should and some cool features! Logs all typed keys and as a bonus, takes screen shots every few minutes. The screen shots are kind of neat and I didnt know about them until way after I installed (stored in C:\DS\Images for me)

Cons

Major typing lag, see comments below

Summary

I was about to wipe my computer because I thought something was wrong with it the lagging was so bad.
Oh, and its not an old computer struggling with applications with Desktop Shark being "the straw"; my laptop is a new computer, with an i3 processor and windows 7.
It was causing SEVER typing lag in EVERYTHING I was typing in! I finally figured it out when I went into Task Manager and realized dskl.exe was chewing up 13-15% cpu every time I typed. Wouldnt think this would cause lag with this being so low, but low and behold when I uninstalled, my computer is lag free. Even if the person doesnt know that DS is installed, they would know something was going on...and i3 processor lagging with typing means most computers would probably suffer some kind of issue as well.

"Disappointing"

March 31, 2011  |  By compconsultant

 |  Version: Desktop Shark 2.54

Pros

I'm sure it has some..

Cons

Was trashed by NIS2011 as a keylogger/virus. Couldn't get it to work, too bad too.

Summary

I'm sure the issue can be fixed by some communication by the vendor with Symantec, I just don't have the patience for applications that do not work right-out-of-the-box. Sorry Desktop Shark, better luck next time.
