      "Very good Chrome-based browser"

      July 29, 2014   |   By paul1149

      Version: SlimBrowser 7.0 build 103

      Pros

      Solid, stable, polished.

      Cons

      Comes with Chrome's limitations: extensions, download bar, tab options, etc.

      Summary

      I'm now using Slimbrowser as my main backup, after my main browser, Opera 12. I give the browser high marks for its polish and function. I haven't had a single crash yet. And many here are under the misconception that this browser is based on IE. It is not. It is based on Chrome's Blink engine.

      It still doesn't measure up to Opera 12, though it renders more sites without problems. Opera itself has gone to the Blink engine, and in my estimation regretfully is not proceeding at a viable development pace.

      it's free, support is awesome, always up to date and when using the safe browsing feature, it let's you know when a site isn't safe.

      "Garbage highjacks browser attaches adware!"

      July 29, 2014

      Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

      Pros

      none whatsoever

      Cons

      This program highjacked my browser, attached pernicious adware, and I can't remove the ads even after I deleted this program. It is worthless and the ads are driving me insane!

      Pros

      It does a fair job scanning files. Neat interface. Very effective detection engine. Maybe too good.

      Like any other antivirus, it will sometimes throw up a false positives.

      "Comparable to paid programs."

      July 29, 2014   |   By Thomas_is_epperson

      Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.2.5952

      Pros

      It compares very well to all the paid programs. Straightforward UI is easy to figure out. Scans are as good as any. What makes a difference is the real time protection. It warns you right away, when something is wrong. Not every antivirus program has a game mode. Ad-aware has it for free. This is a very good antivirus.

      Cons

      I only had one problem which I was able to rectify.

      Summary

      Total protection and detection of threats.

      "Didn't work, Downloaded toxic files"

      July 29, 2014   |   By beccafool

      Version: AVCHD to MP4 Converter 1.0

      Pros

      Unfortunately, I can't add any pros.

      Cons

      -Was not able to find my AVCHD/.mts files on my computer (and as a result, couldn't convert them to MP4 format)
      -Downloaded Undesirable Adware
      -Downloaded Applications without my consent
      -May have infected my computer with other malware/viruses

      Summary

      Ugh. The program did not work at all and infected my computer. Now, I have been set back during a busy day at work trying to restore my computer and have only made reverse progress. I have learned my lesson and will do better due diligence in the future!

      "waste of time"

      July 29, 2014   |   By cmiberoa

      Version: Not Found

      Pros

      none that I can see

      Cons

      rude sales people, even if we needed it, why would we ever sign up with that kind of attitude.

      Summary

      These people kept calling our office to sign up our doctor. When I would ask what they did they wouldn't say, just a bunch of doubletalk about servicing Mount Sinai Hospital. When asked again what their services were they only wanted to speak to the doctor. I googled them and let them know that we did not need these services. The comeback? "how do you know if you don't know what we do?" so I ask what is it that you do? "well you don't seem interested so let's not waste our time" Ok, whatever, I ask them to take our doctor off their list and thank you but to not to call again. His response? "Ok, we'll keep calling." What a jerk.
