    "Desktop Side Bar"

    June 06, 2013   |   By 1castle

    Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.05 build 116

    Pros

    At this point, I'm rather new to DSb and I like it. There are still things I need to learn what can it do and what it cannot do. So far so good except haven't figured out how to get the Weather on DSb.

    Cons

    It's fast and intimidating.

    Summary

    Try it!! You just might like it. I like most is the "hide U unhide".

    "Great desktop app"

    April 18, 2011   |   By Don A

    Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.05 build 116

    Pros

    Gives easy access to many types of data such as email, rss, weather and keeps it out of the way but available on a mouse move. I have used it for many years.

    Cons

    The developers have not released an update since July 2006 and parts of the app are now failing to work with Win7 and IE9. I had to turn off DEP to keep it running, but freeze ups still happen.

    Summary

    Good app but be prepared to tinker with no help from app developers.

    "Excellent!"

    February 18, 2011   |   By nomi1710

    Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.05 build 116

    Pros

    Easy to set up. Very customizable. I've been using this sidebar for many years and it's never let me down. No problems with anti-virus detecting it as anything malicious.

    Cons

    sometimes I have been unsuccessful transferring settings from one machine to another.

    Summary

    would recommend to keep your desktop nice and tidy ;)

    "Loved it - but AVG 2010 reports a Trojan"

    November 25, 2010   |   By Grubsterman

    Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.05 build 116

    Pros

    Worked great- does all sorts of nice things, but what's with this Trojan?
    Is this a "false positive" and if so, then why?

    Cons

    Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic10.APFU

    Summary

    Too scared to use it until Trojan is resolved.
