"This is a scam!!"
It records keystrokes - for anyone and everyone to see!!
The free version of this software does not start in hidden mode. So, whoever turns the computer on, whether on start or restart, will see the icon on the taskbar. Oh, but it gets better.
When you click on the icon, you are taken to the main screen that offers the option of starting in 'hidden mode'. When you click on that, another screen comes up that directs you to the website where you can purchase this program for $29.95. It clearly states there that the hidden mode is not offered in the freeware.
Additionally, as some have reported, this program does not uninstall. It remains on your computer until you wipe the drive clean or employ someone with enough technical expertise to go deep into the resitry of the computer and surgically extract it.
I've seen this sort of scam before where freeware is offered, where the program is unable to be uninstalled, and where the real program is then offered for a price. BUT....
I DIDN'T THINK CNET WOULD STOOP TO THIS.
I AM DONE WITH CNET!!!!
THIS IS A SCAM IN WHICH CNET HAS AGREED TO PARTICIPATE.
IF YOU DOUBT ME, TRY INSTALLING THIS ON A COMPUTER THAT THE KEYSTROKE LOG TRANSPARENCY IS UNIMPORTANT - BUT REMEMBER THAT IT WILL NOT UNINSTALL.
