    "Great Program"

    May 17, 2013  |   By CWO3333

    Version: SoftPerfect Network Scanner 5.4.11

    Pros

    Great and compact program. Does what it describes and is straight to the point.

    Cons

    Nothing at all.

    Summary

    Brian19672 did you use the green download button on this page with "CNET installer enabled"? If so, that's probably why you got the adware/spyware. Its a shame CNET actually does that to legit programs that don't distribute that junk. I suggest everyone to use the link below that says "Direct Download Link" instead. This way, you don't have to use that horrible spyware installer that CNET is forcing on us.

    "Ad and Spyware"

    April 4, 2013  |   By Brian19672

    Version: SoftPerfect Network Scanner 5.4.10

    Pros

    It did work very fast and found most of the devices on my network.

    Cons

    The program locked up the computer I was using. It downloaded Real Player for some reason. After deleting all that was installed a scan revealed ad-ware and spyware were installed with this download.

    Summary

    Shame that this program comes with the unwanted mess. The program itself ran nicely but who wants all the hassle of the added garbage. I would not recommend this program not because it does not work but due to the ad-ware, spyware and real time player downloads. Also I think it wanted to download Google Chrome and make a certain webpage a new home page.
    If you do try this program I would say do it on a spare computer that you would not care if it was out of service to be cleaned or to have the whole OS reinstalled. Also watch out for check boxes for more software that you do not want.

    "Great for what I need"

    November 29, 2011  |   By blconsulting94

    Version: SoftPerfect Network Scanner 5.3.1

    Pros

    This software fills my need to be able to scan my network to see device IP addresses.

    Cons

    None that I have found for what I need it to do.

    Summary

    Works as advertised.

    "It does what it is supposed to do, as advertised"

    November 9, 2009  |   By JoshCritchley

    "Wonderfull"

    October 7, 2009  |   By Ems1681

    Version: SoftPerfect Network Scanner 4.3.3

    Pros

    In South-Africa we work on bites, now I can choose what to install when and dont have to worry about my bites

    Cons

    So far nothing

    Summary

    What is not to like? It is easy to use and it give me the oppertunity to choose what I think is important to download first and the rest when I have available bites at the end of the month.

    "Scanned my whole network- accurately"

    May 21, 2007  |   By y2skippy

    Version: SoftPerfect Network Scanner 3.3

    Pros

    Scanned my whole network, not just one IP at a time. It is also accurate unlike other freeware I tried. This program runs from the executable file, it does not need to be installed. As a bonus you can see the hidden and unhidden shares on each machine and printers. Save results into XML, XLS, TXT or HTML files. It will resolve MAC Addresses if you select it under Options.

    Cons

    I couldn't find any... It did what I was looking for... and its FREE!

    "This one did the trick - scans a range and reports - worked well."

    December 7, 2005  |   By Shifty Sherlock

    Version: SoftPerfect Network Scanner 2.5

    Pros

    Simple to use, quick, has filtering options, reports the services it can see on IP addresses in use.

    Cons

    There is a field "MAC address" but this remained blank - would be useful if this worked.
