Editors' review

Take down all those annoying yellow reminder papers off your office wall and keep them neatly organized on your computer desktop. Simple Sticky Notes lives up to its title by providing a simple way of reminding yourself of important notes.

This free program embeds itself in the system tray and offers very little beyond the capability to make and sort notes, which is perfectly fine with us. From the tray, users create a new note, which pops up as a look-alike yellow Post-it note. However, this one can have its color changed and its transparency adjusted thanks to the pull down menu at the top of the note. The size can also be adjusted on the note, but that's the end of the formatting options.

The tray menu gives users the opportunity to show all notes and sort them to stay organized. While the notes aren't automatically stacked on top of one another, but staggered, this is still a great way to look at notes that have been minimized and forgotten. While we would have liked to have seen an alarm system like some other sticky note programs provide, we have no complaints with Simple Sticky Notes' straightforward system and its fine way of keeping notes for free.

    "Don't download - Malware!"

    June 09, 2014   |   By JakeTheBeerman

    Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.4

    Pros

    Earlier versions worked fine - an easy to use and very useful application.

    Cons

    Be sure to have Malware Anti-Malware software loaded on your computer first, because you're going to need it. Not only did this version fail to run (I'm using Windows 7), but it came loaded with Malware. Suddenly I had pop-up ads springing up like weeds. First, I had to manually remove the "ssn.exe" file, using Windows Task Manager. Then I ran Revo Uninstaller to clean out Simple Sticky Notes. Finally, I ran Malware Anti-Malware to get rid of the dozens of malware files that had infected my PC. Save yourself the trouble. Don't download this app. Sad, too, because I really liked the earlier version.

    Summary

    I'd give it zero stars if I could.

    Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.4

    Pros

    There aren't any. Skip this product. Run!

    Cons

    1. Adds an unwanted toolbar.
    2. Automatically changes to your Home Page.
    3. Unwanted additional add-ons to Firefox.
    4. Unwanted changes to your search-engine.

    Summary

    Find another post-it option. This is bad news.

    Shame on you download.cnet.com for offering this.

    "DOWNLOAD.COM POSSIBLY INFECTED BY MALWARES"

    December 06, 2013   |   By drhanlinaung

    Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.2

    Pros

    Simple and useful

    Cons

    Possibly infected by malwares (drive by downloads)

    Summary

    I download this software this morning and this evening avast detected two virus/ malwares: svhost and googleupdate. I previously downloaded hotspotshield from this site and my computer was infected by stubborn adwares. Its time for download.cnet.com to take responsibility for the softwares on their site. For me, its time to avoid download.com for a while until they take responsibility.

    "Better than the competition that I tried"

    November 29, 2013   |   By GERRY RAINS

    Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.2

    Pros

    The notes are quite clear. They change colors which may or may not be good.

    Cons

    They have to be activated every day.
    You can't drag them to other places on your computer - you have to stretch them to the side, minimize them, then stretch them up or down and minimize them. A pain the the ****I

    Summary

    Don't get Simple Sticky Notes unless you love them. They are a pain to uninstall.

    "Windows 7 Sticky Notes"

    October 28, 2013   |   By RenegadesMC

    Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.1

    Pros

    - You can resize and move the sticky note along with a few extra features to accommodate what the user likes.

    - Downloader was simple and gives you the choice to accept or decline those annoying add-ons (at least I think so).

    -Download was fast and easy to install.

    -No Malware,Spyware, Adware, or Viruses found. I will provide a couple of SS's in my summary.

    Cons

    Nothing yet.

    Summary

    I was looking for Windows 7 Sticky Notes as I am running Windows 8. I am 100% sure I didn't download some type of imitation software (forgot the technical term). I had found Notezilla prior to this but comes with a 30 day trial. Blah. Happy I found this free and familiar alternative. Once again, Thank You C-NET.

    You are given the choice to accept or decline that software. I, as well, clicked accept right away thinking it was just a bunch of ToS crap and then I paused before I actually finished with the installer, exited, and re-launched. I ran several anti-virus and anti-malware software on my PC after installation and nothing came up. My homepage was not hijacked and no backup function popped up. You may have even received a simple "Do you want to backup your PC?" message from your comp because you simply installed a new program or it was just sheer coincidence. I will save this page, restart my computer, and come back to let you know if there were any of the changes you experienced.
