    "WORKS GREAT - NO PROBLEMS AT ALL WITH IT!"

    January 31, 2012  |   By Himmel456

    Version: PhotoJoy 2.0 build 956

    Pros

    Takes pictures from whatever sources you designate, adds them to 1 or more collages that you select, and then uses them as wallpaper and/or screensavers. You can also select how often the collages and the pictures rotate.

    Cons

    None. I've enjoyed using PhotoJoy for approx. 4 months now with absolutely no problems of any kind.

    Summary

    An excellent download that works very well with minimal intrusion. (I use Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3)

    "Garbage - can't uninstall"

    September 21, 2011  |   By digit103

    Version: PhotoJoy 2.0 build 956

    Pros

    none - would give negative stars if possible

    Cons

    Won't let you uninstall and takes over your browser search.

    Summary

    I had to roll back to a save point to get rid of all the settings. Hides things in registry and takes over browser search with their bing affiliate search.

    Updated on Sep 21, 2011

    I posted a complaint via their link to the BBB site. Hopefully enough people can do this to get the link removed. They also list CNet as verifying they are clean.

    "Avoid at all costs!!!"

    September 17, 2011  |   By shorebird77

    Version: PhotoJoy 2.0 build 956

    Pros

    None. There is nothing redeeming about this system-hijacker. And many, many better, also free, photo-saving-and-sharing programs out there.

    Cons

    Dangerous program, no way to configure -- or exit!

    Summary

    Avoid this program at all costs!!! It hitched a ride on RevoUninstaller -- how ironic! Otherwise, I would not have been able to get rid of it so quickly. It loads itself into the quick-launch toolbar, then refuses to bring up "Options" to remove it from same. I then opened the program, hoping to set options there... only to find no menu other than a list of activities, like "upload photos." Worse, no close-page "X" -- could not even shut it down. Revo was the only answer. AVOID THIS PROGRAM AT ALL COSTS!!!

    "get out of here quick! run and never look back!!!"

    September 11, 2011  |   By d-man d-myth d-;egend

    Version: PhotoJoy 2.0 build 956

    Pros

    none! not interested in figuring any out. this program must be designed for pc illiterate people who like "pretty things" and "cool concepts" to take complete control.

    Cons

    everything. as far as i'm concerned, it's malware, plain and simple.

    i don't normally comment on these things, but this thing absolutely needs a warning!!!

    Summary

    my aunt called me a week ago losing her mind. she had no idea what was going on with her computer and wanted some help. i told her to download team viewer so i could take a look. she struggled with that and said the desktop wouldn't even let her get online. after about an hour, i gave in and asked her to drop it off.when i powered the box up it worked for maybe 10 minutes before the box blew the power supply. not good!

    so i ordered and installed a new p/s. when i booted the machine up it was mere seconds before everything was steaming hot. i opted for an upgraded power supply, so there was no reason why it got hot, imo. after some rigorous cleaning up, deleting program after program, etc. i was able to keep the thing running for a little while without it temping out and shutting down. i started my downloads with simple programs such as cleanup, ccleaner and spywareblaster. after running and updating thosei could see some improvement, so opted to continue cleaning up he r current hdd to see if everything could be made copasetic. next came advanced system care and malwarebytes. more improvement, so i moved on. next up was ad aware and avast.

    after all that and several times running of each program, even the simplest scans were taking hours, the pc is still suffering from intermittent shut down and overheating issues and i'm ready to give up on this hdd. after all i'd already removed, deleted or quarantined over 400,000 threats. so i deleted avast and install and run avg. then i delete ad aware and install and run spybot search and destroy. they found and removed additional threats, so it was a move in the right direction. but no go for a final acceptable running condition. so i remove them and restore back ad aware and avast as i prefer them with my preferred configuration. i then downladed and ran hijack this boy did i delete a lot with that, but still problems persisted.

    i then removed her hdd and replaced it with a freshly zeroed out western digital hdd i had laying around . i commence to put her OS back on there and installing her new protection then decide to back up her files using one of my many linux boxes. i then take the hdd i put them on and connect it to one of my windows boxes and scan the folder. it comes up with one threat and the coinciding file is removed. next i hook that hdd up to her box, scan the folder agin which looks succesful with no threats found and commence to utting this file back onto her machine. just to be safe i run every scan on the machine and find nothing. low and behold some of my browser settings start changing on her machine and i'm thoroughly peeved. i start firefox only to see that darn toolbar for this crummy program on there somehow... I DIDN'T INSTALL THIS PROGRAM!!!

    after "uninstalling" this crummy program and the uninstall disappearing, the toolbar is still there and the "program" is still "functional". soooo... i use uninstallers from several other programs including the one from ccleaner that scans for leftovers... and nothing... useless... a waste of time.

    resistance is futile!!!! what a piece of crap program! you have been warned! proceed at your own risk!!!
