    "Access emails but wish it supported attachments"

    November 05, 2013   |   By ACV123456

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    I could read all the emails without using Outlook, which is great.

    Cons

    I couldn't open any attachments.

    Summary

    Microsoft is a crock. I bought a new computer, and then I have to pay even more to use the basics like Windows Office and Outlook.

    "Use smth else"

    October 07, 2013   |   By Grandhome2

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    It's just a basic viewer that wasn't able to open my large PST file. Thanks to the warnings I got rid of all those additional installations that come with the program. Finally I downloaded a free Coolutils PST Viewer and it worked fine.

    Cons

    Many additional unwanted staff inside the program.

    "Waste of time - unless you enjoy mallware"

    June 01, 2013   |   By Thissucksdotcom

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    None, it never loaded, could not be used.

    Cons

    Link downloaded a program that needed to download another program. The program then failed to install the promised program; instead it used computer resources to install mallware and attempt to change web browser, search tool (bing!), and home page.

    Summary

    CNET is no longer my goto resource online for all things computers. Instead all I find are adds, poor articles, and attempts to steal personal information or hijack my computer.

    "Good basic PST viewer, but be CAREFUL on the install!!!"

    March 15, 2013   |   By chynook73

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    1. It does what it is supposed to. I have been able to review an old .pst file to find some contacts and get back in touch with them.
    2. Good for viewing pst files when you do not own a personal copy of MS Outlook.
    3. The GUI is user friendly and intuitive.
    4. It is sortable (sort by name, date, subject)
    5. The folder list in the left pane exactly mimics the view of my pst file in actual Outlook!
    6. It's free!

    Cons

    1. It is not searchable, so it can take forever to find what you are looking for if you are looking for keywords and not something that can be easily found by the sort.
    2. Potential for spam/spyware. Just because it comes from CNET, you still have to be careful when installing. See #3.
    3. Be very careful when installing anything on your computer that you did not pay for. You do NOT have to click through and accept EVERYTHING in the install. This is the spyware/bloatware that people are most likely talking about in other reviews. ONLY ACCEPT THE PROGRAM AND NOT ALL THE EXTRAS!!!!

    Summary

    Although there is no search function, it is free and it works. Don't accept all the extras when installing, and you will be happy with this little program.

    Updated on Mar 15, 2013

    I only gave it three stars due to the lack of search function and the spyware that CAN come with this install if you are not careful.

    "WARNING full of spam and toolbars"

    February 06, 2013   |   By Jonjeds

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    None. Did not work at all.

    Cons

    Immediately changed internet settings and installed toolbars and search engine and that highly irritating advert thing that inserts links into your everyday websites. It then deleted restore points so it was impossible to restore system back to normal.

    "Closed all windows without warning when it installed."

    January 16, 2013   |   By alumni72

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    Haven't tried it yet (see Cons)

    Cons

    I needed it to retrieve some old work information but when I installed it, all my other applications got closed automatically with NO warning, including some open documents I had been working on. That is INEXCUSABLE!!!!

    Summary

    While it may prove to be useful, BEWARE - save all your documents and close your apps individually before you try to install this, or you will be sorry!

    "Did the job without a lot of bells and whistles"

    December 17, 2012   |   By eabraham

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    It did what I wanted it to do: opened my saved Outlook pst archive files from a previous computer, without me having to install outlook on my new computer. I was able to retrieve some license numbers from software purchases that I had neglected to record elsewhere

    Cons

    It couldn't open or view everything, especially attachments

    Summary

    If you just want to take a look at PST files and don't have outlook, this is definitely worth trying. It might be all that you need

    "Installed AOL toolbar + Spyware"

    December 13, 2012   |   By NunnaUBiz

    Version: PST Viewer 11.05.01

    Pros

    See CONS, below.

    Cons

    Any potential PRO's are outweighed by the fact that - without asking permission or even informing me - the program installed the AOL toolbar, reset my browser's home page to AOL and also reset my default browser to AOL. It also installed Coupon and Shopping software without permission or acknowledgement.

    Summary

    Don't bother unless you want your computer to slow to a crawl and have time to waste resetting your browser settings and finding / uninstalling all the unauthorized programs.

    Updated on Dec 13, 2012

    Correction - it reset my default SEARCH ENGINE, not the default browser.
