    "screwed up my settings irreversibly"

    August 23, 2014   |   By gbferrell

    Version: Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.4.40

    Pros

    Didn't use it enough to find any.

    Cons

    After installing, updating and immunizing using default settings, it arbitrarily deleted my Recent Items list from my Start menu and I had to change my password to log into my Yahoo Mail again, after which I couldn't regain the better version and had to use the basic version of Yahoo Mail- apparently because of some kind of cookie setting that was changed. Likewise, I couldn't log into my Reverbnation.com account because it said cookies weren't allowed in my browser. I tried every setting I could find in IE 11 options, lowering security levels as far as possible in Security and Privacy tabs, but still couldn't log into Reverbnation.com or regain the advanced version of Yahoo Mail. I tried to use S&D's new 'undo fixing' function but that had no effect. I had to do a System Restore before I could regain previous access to the above-mentioned 2 websites. I've been using older versions of S&D for years and never had this type of problem. Wasted about 4 hours.

    Summary

    S&D 2.4 over manages and screwed up my settings irreversibly. Thanks to Microsoft for System Restore.

    "One of the best product I've seen"

    August 23, 2014   |   By phbk

    Version: PhraseExpress Text Expander 10.5.16

    Pros

    Ease of use
    Possibillities
    Spelling correction (can even import from Word and Outlook)
    Advanced features like multiple variables, yet easy to use
    if-then-else option

    Cons

    None so far.
    Many Things I didn't thought was possible, could be found in their forum.

    Summary

    I liked this product right after it was installed.
    Only after about 5-10 minutes, i knew I woudn't uninstall this great Tool.
    I was amazed over the auto-text, with variables, option to make a 'Dear [name]' (you enter name in a popup menu, or leave it with a default like 'Customer')
    Theres a option to open a calendar for dates, and much much more.
    I can only advice you to Watch the videoes to show some of the powers in this Tool. It does so much more.
    If you use lots of standard text but to different people, this program make sure you don't accidentally send out a mail from a text template, so receiver get's a ie. 'It will be delivered at [date] to your address' this program can be programmed to make you select a date from a calendar.

    PhraseExpress is now one of my standard programs to start up with Windows, and to stay with me forever.
    Now I have tried it, i have purchased it, and coudn't live without it.
    This is defently one program to try out.
    You are able to try it out for a month, and even keep ity for free, if you are not going to use any advanced features.

    "DONT DOWNLOAD! TROJAN HORSE FULL OF VIRUSES & MALWARE!"

    August 23, 2014   |   By DownloadReviewer

    Version: Free MKV to MP4 Converter 2.1

    Pros

    NONE. THE CNET REVIEWER IS EITHER IN ON THE SCAM OR WAS TO LAZY TO DO A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION BEFORE SUBMITTING THE REVIEW!

    Cons

    THERE NO WAY AROUND THE 5+ MALWARE AND VIRUSES THIS INSTALLS WITHOUT PERMISSION. EVEN IF YOU CLICK NO ON THE OFFERS IN THE INSTALLATION PROCESS. THE PROGRAM DOESN'T EVEN WORK! ONCE YOU DOWNLOAD THIS PROGRAM, THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE THE TROJAN IS TO COMPLETELY REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER TO FACTORY DEFAULT!

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

    "'Bait and Switch' to pay to use"

    August 23, 2014   |   By NewOrderrr

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

    Pros

    Found several duplicate files after a 3 hours search

    Cons

    After a three hour search done across 3 external hard drives, when I went to click on one of the files if listed as a duplicate, I got a pop-up message that read that I exceeded the number of uses I had available for the product, and should buy the 'pro' version. I only clicked on ONE file and I got this message. When I uninstalled it, I got a browser pop up offering that I should buy it at a discounted $30 price.

    Summary

    It isn't even 'trial-ware', since I could not perform even ONE action after the file scan without being prompted to purchase the final version.

    If there was a restriction, such as only allowing 10 actions per day, then maybe I would try to use it, but no one should consider this anything but 'bait and switch' type of product.

    August 23, 2014   |   By gekoselenn

    Version: DriverDoc 1.52.1086.14425

    Cons

    "Serves its purpose well"

    August 23, 2014   |   By mesmerdeva

    Version: FileViewPro 1.5

    Pros

    This file opener serves its purpose. It helps people view what's inside of the files and allows them to decide whether they need a better program for some particular extension or not.

    Cons

    FileViewPro is not a substitute for professional programs. It just helps to view the content, and even edit some small things. But the interface is somewhat limiting for some file types and anything more that viewing will require professional editing programs.

    I find nothing I can say until now.
