We have to admit that we were skeptical when we first downloaded Elite People Search. We've seen similar programs before, and they typically turn out to be spammy wastes of time. Much to our surprise and delight, however, Elite People Search actually works. It's not perfect, but it does a decent job of quickly locating people without any advertising or other hassles.
The program's interface is plain and straightforward. Users enter the state and then either the city or county they want to search. Next, enter the person you want to search for, including any variations. For example, you can search for John Brown, John L. Brown, John Lewis Brown, and J.L. Brown all at the same time to make the results as inclusive as possible. Then just click search, and the program returns a list with each person's name, address, phone number, and date of birth; the results can be sorted by each of these categories. The program has no Help file--just a brief About with a couple of FAQs--but that's okay; it's easy to figure out. Elite People Search is powered by ZabaSearch, which we weren't previously familiar with, but it seems to be a pretty powerful database. We did notice that some of the results were out of date, and we weren't able to find information on anyone --including ourselves--whom we knew to have only a cell phone and not a home phone number. This is perhaps Elite People Search's biggest drawback; an increasing number of people are ditching their landlines in favor of using their cell phones as their primary phones, so this could limit the program's usefulness. Still, Elite People Search returned surprisingly comprehensive results, and we recommend to anyone who regularly searches for people's contact information.
Elite People Search installs and uninstalls without issues.

Very fast searching. I was able to go state by state through the entire country in less than five minutes. I found my new address, (wrong phone number)and the pay sites I tried couldn't find it. I compared the accuracy with another pay site, and it was a little better than the pay site.
No email addresses, but from what I've seen, that's a small concession for the benefits from this program.
Better than the pay sites I've tried, easy download and installation...you've got to try it to believe it.
It couldn't find any of the several relatives that I used to test it's accuracy. It was unable to even find me, and I've been at this address for 50 years.
I'm suspicious now because I cannot find it in Programs to uninstall. Also, MS had popped up a warning prior to installation - about there being something unusual about the software. But I trusted CNET's recomendation and installed eps anyway. Bad move I guess.
Works for me. I searched for a friend in Florida. My query returned his home, his business, and his wife's information. This was very helpful, because I couldn't remember his wife's name and I needed it for the salutation on a greeting card.
Ocasionally, a query returns outdated information, perhaps, because the source data is old. Too many terms in the query statement, sometimes, seems to produce an error.
Very good people search software. Great for down and dirty quick searching.
