    "ADWARE / MALWARE"

    July 9, 2013  |   By artywasiak

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    There is absolutely NONE!

    Cons

    I cant believe CNET put this up.
    * Installs toolbar with 18yr+ searches - nice on my frakken work PC
    * Changes your search provider
    * DOES NOT EVEN WORK!

    Summary

    I have reported this to CNET and urge others to do the same. The provider should be banned from EVER being able to distribute this crap.
    I trusted CNET for over a decade. . . trusted.

    "Surprising and offensive extra tossed in"

    June 18, 2013  |   By spadeskingtx

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    Cannot name any pros since due to the unwanted and offensive toolbar installed without my permission had to immediately uninstall.

    Cons

    Downloaded this plugin to supposedly make it easier to download youtube videos. Immediately after starting IE after downloading this plugin noticed a toolbar with a huge tab labeled find porn now. This is not why I downloaded this and do not appreciate such an offensive toolbar being placed on my machine. Unwanted toolbars are one thing but one that labels me a porn addict is just too much. Give me what you advertise and nothing else. And keep your porn to yourself. Immediately removed the tool bar and deinstalled everything. And come on cnet. I trust you to screen better than this.

    "Adware, DO NOT INSTALL!! Hard to get rid of it."

    March 27, 2013  |   By greenjackp

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    None at all. Doesn't work, creates ads= adware.

    Cons

    -Doesn't work.
    -Tool bar creates annoying Ad pop-ups.
    -Installs on all browsers weather you like it to or not.(I have
    IE, Firefox, & Chrome. Installed it for IE and it put it in all 3)
    -Tool bar is difficult to uninstall. I removed the extension/plug-in from all my browsers and uninstalled the program, and still there are remnants I can't get rid of. Thinking about going to a previous restore point.

    Summary

    -Don't even think about installing this.
    -If you do anyway create a restore point first.
    -CNet should remove this from the site. I thought I could trust downloads from here, I guess that's not always the case.

    "Works well, no problems : Ignore the troll reviews"

    November 14, 2012  |   By ShagHack

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    Easy to use on Chrome. Downloads from a wide variety of sites without any issue. Have been using this for around 4 months without problems and was happy to find a flash downloader for Chrome.

    Cons

    The popup window when you click to download could give a bit more info. When I first began using I was not sure which option in the popup window to click but have figured it out with trial and error.

    Summary

    If you use Chrome and need a flash video downloader, it's good.

    "It Doesn't Work"

    November 7, 2012  |   By DigitalDavey

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    At least I could uninstall it. Some have marked this as Spyware, but I haven't had it flagged as such by SuperAntiSpyware, which would usually pick up anything of that nature.

    Cons

    Doesn't work, no instructions, has a "toolbar", a button for finding porn, which probably isn't what we want on our browser when we're presenting the Church accounts to the PCC.....

    Summary

    Don't use.

    "Garbage bordering on spyware"

    August 17, 2012  |   By bigbadstevo

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    Surprisingly, it actually downloaded a YouTube video (but didn't recognise videos on other webpages I tried). The main pro is that the uninstaller worked for me (though another user's experience differed I see here.

    Cons

    Tried to hijack my homepage. No documentation. Works differently than the CNet staff review.

    Installs a button for finding adult videos, bloody lovely for children installing it and those who don't want porn.

    Two settings buttons were installed to my IE8, one of which does nothing. Significant browser real estate is wasted on a required toolbar which can't be moved.

    Clicking the working settings button allows hiding the porn button & removing the useless search bar. There are checkboxes for 'Error DNS Lookup', 'Error Pages' and 'Search Queries'. What? If these are ticked (they are by default) and you mistype a web address, a search from the kickback search provider is done. Not sure what else this nasty plugin does. You see why there's no documentation.

    Users might come to the conclusion that if this isn't spyware, it's so close that the word 'spyware' might need redefining.

    Giving it half a star because zero stars isn't allowed.

    May CNet remove it from this site never to return.

    Summary

    DO NOT INSTALL, RUN AWAY!!!

    "Doesn't Work, Won't uninstall"

    March 26, 2012  |   By mdeley

    Version: FVD Suite IE Plugin 1.07

    Pros

    None - fails to meet any requirements of operational software.

    Cons

    Doesn't work, won't uninstall, appears to be something other than advertised. FVD for Firefox worked flawlessy, but it's a simple add-on for FF, not a "Suite" of crap.

    Summary

    DO NOT INSTALL, RUN AWAY!!
