    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM HERE"

    February 20, 2014   |   By Taylor_at_MetaGeek

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    inSSIDer is the best wireless scanner out there.

    Cons

    CNET has wrapped the installer with malware that is setting off anti-virus alerts. This is NOT MetaGeek's doing. Get the REAL inSSIDer at www dot inssider dot com

    Summary

    It's unfortunate that CNET's malware-ridden installer is being mistaken for something that MetaGeek did on purpose. CNET has yet to respond to our requests to remove inSSIDer from download.com.

    "Does not run on Windows 8"

    February 05, 2014   |   By IamaTechie

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Works on Win7 OK

    Cons

    Will not install on win8
    Spyware tries to install

    Summary

    download/begin install, you will receive message that this is "not a valid windows installer".
    Note: you will also have to go through a gauntlet of spamming bloatware/adware in order to get to the install. You cannot simple "download" the program, you MUST download the CNET "installer" instead. Which is probably why Windows 8 won't allow it?

    "Attached Bloatware Makes This a Sketchy Download"

    February 02, 2014   |   By jshrwd

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    inSSIDer is a nice tool

    Cons

    tons of virus-like bloatware installs itself along with inSSIDer
    includes modifications to your browser

    Summary

    If you want to take the time to remove the chaff, it's a fine enough program. Most people won't want to, though, and should just avoid this altogether.

    "Infects your PC. Cnet should be ashamed!"

    January 05, 2014   |   By PGB_Philly

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    None, zero, zilch, nada.

    Cons

    Loads MANY unwanted programs that will take several other virus and malware removal downloads to get rid of. I recommend you have Malwarebytes and spybot ready and updated if you are stupid enough to download this piece of junk. Cnet should be ashamed this is still on their site.

    "didn't work"

    December 15, 2013   |   By sassyklerk

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    none, none, none, none,

    Cons

    says it's for xp/vista/7/ and i have xp and it won't install. Of course that is a blessing after I read a previous review!

    Summary

    cnet, i know you have to earn money to operate but you u need to be more upfront with the crap that tries to install itself when we download a program from you. Some sneaky stuff going on here and i don't like it. Might have to get my software somewhere else.
