Editors' Review

+
This one-trick pony simply shuts your computer down at a specific time but its limitations overshadow its usefulness. Shutdown Machine comes as a small ZIP file and doesn't require installation. Its elementary interface lets you schedule a system shutdown by specific days and times, however, you're only given one off-time at a time. Though it's free and performs its single function appropriately, users may want a program that allows regularly scheduled actions.

"Used this for years and now its a virus????"

February 23, 2009  |  By toecheese

 |  Version: Shutdown Machine 1.1

Pros

Great program, been using it for years

Cons

none till now when suddenly ZoneAlarm reports it as a virus

Summary

I've used this program for years on a dozen different computers, scanned by Norton, McAfee, Zone Alarm. It was always clean. Now all of a sudden ZoneAlarm says it's a backdoor trojan, and it sounds like others are reporting it too. How can this be getting newly ID'ed as a virus after all this time?

"!!!!! BACKDOOR TROJAN !!!!!! - IT'S NO JOKE"

December 06, 2008  |  By JohnWhoHatesMalware

 |  Version: Shutdown Machine 1.1

Pros

180,000 DOWNLOADERS CAN'T BE WRONG!
SHUTDOWN.EXE places relevant knowledge adware on your computer. It took over 2 hours to edit registry. Also, virustotal said that 18 anti-virus detectors have picked up the file as a backdoor trojan.

Cons

To be honest, this is a good program and worked well. I just don't appreciate the keylogger and adware that they put inside this.

Summary

If you love, backdoor trojans, I say, GO FOR IT! YOU're a hero.
But me, I think I'll pass.

Updated on Dec 6, 2008

What IS WRONG WITH DOWNLOAD.COM WEBMASTERS? Why don't they DELETE THIS FILE AND NEVER ACCEPT SOFTWARE FROM THAT COMPANY AGAIN?
