"Works great! Anti-virus doesn't play well with it."

September 09, 2010  |  By Dark_Wing_Duck

 |  Version: PasswordFox 1.20

Pros

The program works exactly as described. What is really nice is that you don't have to install anything. This program is a stand-alone.

Cons

Anti-virus and anti-spyware programs call it a trojan or a potentially troublesome program, and will block access to the file. AVG, which is what I use, would not even let me unzip the downloaded archive--had to use Win-Rar.

Summary

This program is great if you cannot remember your passwords in Firefox, because it lists them in an easy-to-read list. You can even save the passwords to a text file, either one at a time or en masse.

However, you have to disable your anti-spyware and anti-virus software and create exceptions to get the program to run. My advice would be to extract the files to a separate folder, because when you close the program, it saves a cfg file to the folder in which it was opened.

"VIRUS plagued software!!!"

February 19, 2010  |  By marquezmax

 |  Version: PasswordFox 1.20

Pros

None that I can think of. Didn't even install it.

Cons

As soon as it started to download McAfee gave me a generic trojan warning!
Particularly dangerous as its supposed to have access to all your stored passwords.

Summary

Should'nt CNET be more careful?
After all one comes to download.com precisely avoiding these kind of threats
