"Can't get it too work."

February 22, 2012  |  By DojiX

2012-02-22 12:54:57  |  By DojiX

 |  Version: Power Search Tool 4.0

Pros

I wish there was something.

Cons

Download works OK but does not self-install. Sent message to Power Search Tool Support as per their support (they say they will respond within 24 hrs. That was a week ago but I haven't heard from them yet. I have tried re-downloading at least six times. Have closed all other apps. on my PC (running W7 and Explorer) but to no avail. Sorry but it is all Con and no Pro.

Summary

Might be an OK supplement to Google, if it can be installed, and when it can't, the provider would respond to help requests.

 |  Version: Power Search Tool 4.0

Pros

Yours are the first reviews of the add ons that I read.
I am going back to read all the reviews of every add on I installed.

Cons

Seems like Microsoft goes to such great lengths to protect us, and then I see reviews like this: I
am not quite sure
what the point of it all is....

Summary

Just enough information to confuse me, yet warn me to stay away. So I will.

"Flaky or malware - keep well away"

February 14, 2011  |  By teemarsh

2011-02-14 12:59:37  |  By teemarsh

 |  Version: Power Search Tool 4.0

Pros

Nil - does nothing that can't be done with Google

Cons

Well, where do you start?
Firefox won't have it at any price, and who can blame it. IE accepts it but then runs drunk>dead.

Summary

Just a pile of junk - don't believe the spiel. Don't waste your time trying to instal it in Firefox, it doesn't, and prepare for trouble in IE.
Oh yes, and every spyware programme registers it as malware.
