"Software Informer is great."

July 24, 2014  |  By AlfredWans

 |  Version: Software Informer 1.1

Pros

It is possible to update the programs in time.

Cons

Information on some latest versions is outdated.

Summary

Software Informer is great. It has helped me to keep my system up-to-date for years. I can not only keep track of new updates for my installed software, but also always find new programs in its rapidly growing software library on the web site, read top software news of the world and chat with my friends and relatives. Thank you guys for a great job!

"Badly designed program."

November 24, 2012  |  By ITechLtd

 |  Version: Software Informer 1.1

Pros

Non that I could think of:/

Cons

Resource hog. Requires constant access to harddrive, RAM, CPU, and network(IS provider allowing that is) in order to function, and uses invalid keyloggers to attempt to match software to available updates, from sites that are often unreliable. Main problem, adds exception to firewall and antivirus in order to function, then downloads viruses in place of/attatched to unreliable updates from unvarified sites thus causing considerable damage to the operating system and, at times, the BIOS which in some cases have made repair impossible.

Summary

Do not download this software in any hope that it will, at any point, work effectively. It should be immediatley removed from DownLoad.cnet.com.

"Seems to be going the right way"

September 02, 2011  |  By ChrisSorensson

 |  Version: Software Informer 1.1

Pros

Fixed the majority of false updates (most seem to be human-moderated now, with working links). Light footprint.

Cons

Lacks a bit of customisation.

Summary

Does seem to be offering correct updates now (finally). Quite useful even.

"AWFUL don't do it..."

July 21, 2011  |  By ubetchaaaa

 |  Version: Software Informer 1.0

Pros

none... try deleting this off your computer...

Cons

Recommends old software updates... Hard to use... and the worse part expect POP UP ADS even after you've deleted it...

Summary

DANGER DANGER DANGER.. this will slow your machine down... Good luck deleting this off your machine... I contacted the company and we still are playing tag... they are unaware this stuff is offered on CNET.

Here's part of what they said "this is exactly what boggles us: no one has ever reported similar problems with removing 'Software Informer' before. The whole process has always been the same: Add/Remove Programs -> Remove Software Informer -> Would you like to keep your settings? -> No. -> Good bye.
And we're genuinely wondering what could have gone wrong."
"And a bit confused about your saying it pops up adverts. There's never been a single one in it, either. Would you please point us to the page on CNET which you got 'Software Informer' from?" Amazing.

"Great idea, but doesn't work well"

July 16, 2011  |  By TonyBeGoode

 |  Version: Software Informer 1.1

Pros

It's free and if you like frustration, you'll like this.

Cons

Reliability of scans and subsequent update information is fairly terrible.

Summary

Sent me on several "wild goose chases" - very frustrating. In one instance it said I had an Intel driver in need of updating & when I went to Intel, they said that driver is incompatible with my machine. I then checked with Toshiba (my laptops brand) and their website did not offer that driver for my model either. Therefore: inaccurate scans & update info = a complete waste of time.

"É fraco e não nos leva directamente ao site oficial"

July 06, 2011  |  By ahaefe

 |  Version: Software Informer 1.1

Pros

Diz-nos algumas coisas certas

Cons

Não encontra a maioria das drivers com a actualização certa e manda-nos para a procura da Google

Summary

Pode usar mas a ajuda não vai ser muita.
