"Extortionware"

August 27, 2012  |  By Evilbeard

 |  Version: NetDog Internet Porn Filter 3.9.2

Pros

It's filtering was passable but not very good.

Cons

Blocked itunes Store and eventually my entire net connection on that computer. When I tried to uninstall the password didn't work. Customer Service then said they couldn't help me unless I purchased the software. What? I have to purchase it to uninstall it so my computer will work? What?

Summary

Terrible software and customer service that extorts money from you to uninstall their own p.o.s. software. Isn't that criminal? Avoid Netdog like the plague.

"Doesn't work, non-refundable, no customer service!"

March 14, 2011  |  By probledo723

 |  Version: NetDog Internet Porn Filter 3.9.2

Pros

My credit card company credited my account after trying several (6) times to get some help because Netdogsoft didn't work.

Cons

No customer or technical support. No phone # to call. All communication must be done by email. The only time I heard from Netdogsoft was to informed me of their "NO REFUND" policy.

Summary

Even though I was credited by my credit card company for the purchase of Netdogsoft, they still got to keep $25 for doing nothing at all. The company that handles their orders tried to help me by emailing the author of Netdogsoft but to no avail. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT YOU'RE STUCK WITH NO RECOURSE.

"Slowed down my pc download by 50%"

January 16, 2011  |  By georgieengland

 |  Version: NetDog Internet Porn Filter 3.9.2

Pros

Does stop some porn

Cons

Not freeware, it is only a 7 day trial
Slowed download speed from 2.2mb to 1.05mb
Expensive after the 7 day trial
Many glitches
Doesn't stop all porn
Limited back-up
Very old UI

Summary

Basically, i initially thought this software was ok and even paid for the full version but that was a huge mistake. The problems mounted afterwards with a huge drop in broadband download speed and the filters inability to stop porn on tube websites like youtube etc.

Updating the software is laughable as by doing so it overides the password!! Also, after updating everything appears totally unchanged with no improvement whatsoever.

The sum up... an ancient piece of software which may have been acceptable as freeware 5 years ago but now it is as good as useless.

I have removed it from my pc.

Learn from my mistake and AVOID AVOID AVOID

"Slows download to half the speed"

January 15, 2011  |  By georgieengland

 |  Version: NetDog 3.0.1

Pros

Does filter out most porn and is very easy to use

Cons

Will not stop soft porn on youtube
Not easy to upgrade the software and if you do the password goes thereby removing the protection!
Limited instructions on html file
Slowed download from 2.2mb to 1.05mb, a disaster!
Not freeware - expensive buy

Summary

This appears to be the answer but it isn't. It has all the makings oi a great bit of software but the faults are too great and too many to recommend it. If it had a proper update with some more features then it may be ok. But for £20 it is best avoided. Sadly, I thought it seemed ok initially and paid for the licence within hours only to realise that it's riddled with faults.
Throughout the internet it is advertised as 'free' or 'freeware' but it is limited to 30days use then you have to pay.
Basically very disappointed and have now uninstalled....

"Does Not Work"

January 02, 2010  |  By yaykarin

 |  Version: NetDog Internet Porn Filter 3.9.2

Pros

Cheap. That's it.

Cons

Downloaded this software with high hopes. All you have to do is click refresh and blocked content comes right up 100% of the time. I even blocked ALL sites but one, just to see if it could handle that much, it could not.

Summary

It doesn't work.It totally did not block anything at all. Customer Support is non-existent. All you do is say the product isnt working in these areas and you get NO RESPONSE AT ALL. Terrible.
