"Not As Great As the Early On Versions But It Will Work."

July 20, 2005  |  By NPGMuSiCCLuB

 |  Version: Paltalk 8.0

Pros

Its the most complete program out there of its chating kind that exsist on the net.To cut it short is have everything you have ever seen in any other chat.theres not one thing you can name that paltalk doesint not have.But I recommend this program.

Cons

I dont like paying for live cam.But they have to pay for there server somehow.But Paltalk Has over 20.000.000 users & Even thuo not all pay for live cam alot of the users do,so they can afford to go down on there price.

I also do notlike the 8.0 or the newer one as much as the older 5.0 etc.There messing it up going more in the direction of yahoo & msn.they were unique untill they went in tha direction.

"Paltalk 8 Does Have Spyware!!!"

July 13, 2005  |  By Diesel_Computer

 |  Version: Paltalk 8.0

Pros

Paltalk is somewhat unique in look and feel from other voice, video, text chat in a multi-user environment and functions relatively well.

It's also free unless you want moving video and that's the good news but unfortunately there's a down side.

Cons

A warning to users downloading paltalk 8, you should be advised that Symantec has put out a security response for paltalk.

Also Norton Internet Security Firewall rates it as high risk and advises it be permanently blocked.

I found that even after uninstalling paltalk my virus scan found paltalks spyware still installed on my computer and it takes above average knowledge of Windows to completely remove with out formatting.

I recommend using ( Camfrog ) as a safe alternative to paltalk and it also has the advantage of moving video for it's free users.

You can read more information about paltalk on the Symantec website

Cheers, Diesel_Computer.

"Better go with standard ( MSN,,yahoo,) Messengers ."

July 04, 2005  |  By ntowghi

 |  Version: Paltalk 8.0

Pros

More functionality than Yahoo or MSN Messeneger. If it wasn't for the Cons described below, it would be just as good as any messenger out there.

Cons

Not stable; takes too much resources.

Keeps asking the user to update the messenger (even after updates). Not spyware proof.
