    "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.

    September 04, 2013   |   By DJ_blueFISH

    Version: StartW8 1.1.41

    Pros

    It was very easy to install this Start menu for me and now I do not have to use Metro (ModernUI) anymore! :)

    Cons

    Because it is for free, I do not have any disadvantage.

    "It's OK for being free!"

    December 25, 2012   |   By dockside58

    Version: StartW8 1.1.34

    Pros

    You get the start window kinda like older windows.

    Cons

    You don't get list of programs, or list of currently opened programs, or the search function.

    Summary

    Kinda plain & not as functional as I would like. I uninstalled it. I have grown to like win 8.

    "Great Start Menu replacement for Windows 8"

    November 24, 2012   |   By FreddieKK2

    Version: StartW8 1.0.9.10

    Pros

    Work with Windows 8 easier and faster.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    Use classic Start Menu and modernUI Start Screen together with StartW8, it does not disable modernUI start screen, but runs the start menu side by side.
    StartW8 also has few other quick options when you right click on the start button...
