    "I can't rate this garbage zero stars!"

    April 20, 2014  |   By LManfrede

    Version: Spamfighter 7.6.90

    Pros

    The only positive thing I can say about this garbage is that they promptly refunded my money when they couldn't make it work!

    Cons

    It barely worked at first, then after a week the program uninstalled itself and I had to reinstall it! This happened almost every day, so I contacted tech support and got no response. I then called and was sent to three different so called "techs" each of them told me they couldn't help and passed me to another clueless tech! This took oven an hour and the bottom line was the techs were totally clueless and have no idea what they are doing! I then sent an email to their tech support department and hear nothing back! A second response got the same results. My third response got a request for a log file. Two weeks later I received a request for more detailed log files, and four weeks after sending this, I realized the tech support department has no idea what they're doing and that was when I requested a full refund for the three year subscription I foolishly purchased!

    Summary

    After purchasing a three year subscription I wasted hours uninstalling and reinstalling spamfighter, writing to tech support only to be ignored, and when I asked tech support what was taking so long to get a response I received a nasty email telling me that they are still working on my problem! This was three weeks after I contacted them! Oh, and spamfighter stopped removing spam and I had to manually remove the spam. Since I purchased this spamfighter the amount of spam I am receiving has tripled! And spamfighter that I purchased blocks less than ten percent!

    "Biggest Spammer of all"

    March 7, 2014  |   By junker386

    Version: Spamfighter 7.6.90

    Pros

    None, since it didn't stop even clear spam emails.

    Cons

    Doesn't catch obvious spam. To install pro version you must call an 888 number and then a very rude person tries to con you into giving them remote access into your computer so they can supposedly activate the product. Reality is they install additional trial software that constantly bugs you to buy.

    Summary

    This is software that I would stay far away from. As an IT manager I have to check out all software that anyone in our company wants to install. When I went through the purchase and install steps for this software I couldn't believe they demanded I give them remote access to my computer.

    On the invoice it has a huge graphic that says to activate call an 888 number where a native English speaker will activate your software. A very rude person answered and demanded that I give him remote access into my computer so he could activate the software and check out some other settings to insure the software will run correctly. When I told him there was no way that I would give him access into my computer he got even ruder and said "Then you just paid for software that isn't going to work right."

    I finally got him to admit that he didn't really need access to my computer.

    After getting off the phone with this activation tech I then noticed that Spamfighter had also installed a number of their other products on my computer.

    It is now 2 days later and I think I've finally gotten all their software removed from my computer.

    I just feel it is a very poor business practice to not tell people that your software requires remote access in order to activate and to have your software install all their other products as trialware that is then going to bug them until they uninstall or purchase.

    If that is what they have to do in order to sell their product then that doesn't speak very well of their software and then having a no refund policy tells even more about their business practices.

    Bottom line is if I had known before I purchased what I know now I would have immediately told the person asking about this software "No way!"
