    "Used to be awesome, but with 2.5 there is a problem"

    December 18, 2012  |   By eelydnic

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Like the ability to add backgrounds, pictures, etc.

    Cons

    Major con: With the latest 2.5 version, Incredimail installs Incredibar without user consent. This is NOT the "MyStart" junk that you are given the option to not install. Incredibar (aka: IB updater) hi-jacks your new tab/search in Chrome. It's also tricky to get rid of :( Even after uninstalling it in Programs, it is still there. I have stumbled on the fix after a good amount of searching though (See below in summary)

    Summary

    I have been using Incredimail for many years. I will continue to use it, but the latest version is a true disappointment. Really don't like them sneaking in something that hijacks my new tab page! To remove it...you need to go into Chrome tools, then extensions. Delete IB updater and DELETE "NEW TAB IN CHROME" (that's the one that stumped me for awhile! Without that step, it won't go away.
    I truly hope that Incredimail actually reads these reviews and will take steps to remove this "secret" junk from their software. Their reputation (which used to be 5 stars) has nosedived for me.

    btw...I only use the free version ;)
