    "Cant be uninstall wants to force bundle products"

    July 13, 2014   |   By Adversus2

    Version: StartW8 1.2.44.0

    Pros

    Nice idea for us who miss start menu.

    Cons

    After I upgraded to windows 8.1 it nags that I have to upgrade it. Every time I start my computer it ask for donation and says I have to upgrade. Fine. But then it tries to force me into installing bundled products. I am not intrested in that. Tryed to uninstall it but the uninstall only works in win 8 ???!! ***. Its on the borderline of malware. Thats why I have to recommend to stay away.

    "The app is good, but the bundled software is not"

    May 07, 2014   |   By Patabugen

    Version: StartW8 1.2.44.0

    Pros

    The program itself works well, I have no complaints.

    Cons

    The installer and updater bundles Optimiser Pro, which drags the PC down and tries to make you register. Given the alternatives (Classic shell) totally not worth the hassle of removing OP from my friends machines every time they update.

    Also when an update is a available, the alert telling you appears to block the Start button.

    Summary

    Good app, bundled with rubbish.
