    "The MOST useful tool in my arsenal, bar NONE!!!!"

    May 6, 2009  |   By rspaldi

    Version: UBCD4Win 3.20

    Pros

    If you've got an infected machine, or you can't remember the admin password there is no better tool to get the job done efficiently and reliably. There are tools galore all on a bootable CD that can't get infected! This is a MUST HAVE for IT support!

    Cons

    The only problem (and a minor one at that) is it boots off of a CD. It's a blessing since you can't infect the CD with a virus, but it takes a LONG time to boot up. On a 3GHz machine with 2GB RAM, you can anticipate about 3-7 minutes of boot time.

    Summary

    Despite UBCD4WIN's long boot time, it's well worth the wait when you are trying to fix a broken machine. (You'll likely be waiting around for virus and spyware scans to complete in the not too distant future anyway, so what's the hurry, right?)

    The UBCD contains all kinds of anti-virus, anti-spyware, memory tests, CPU tests, and a full suite of other repair tools all included in the UBCD.

    I've had "Emergency Boot CDs" for years with all kinds of different applications I could use (usually one or two per CD), but this one integrates almost everything into a single, very powerful OS-based solution that is as comprehensive as it is customizable to your specific environment.

    The UBCD has Network Support, so you can update, download and install, or reinstall your own apps into it, which means you have the ability to create a specific CD for each client, or a CD that can run a managed services agent to integrate with your MS Platform (Level Platforms, Kaseya, Silverback, MOM, Nimsoft, Open View, etc,). This is especially useful for integrating your billing time for clients if you have Connectwise...
    (No, I'm not advertising... I only have one of the above, and I don't integrate it into my billing ... Yet...

    The configurability of the UBCD also allows you to deploy your corporate software solutions to scan, manage, and manipulate data to prevent the common "whoops" factor of forgetting to maintain standard network security protocols while working on a machine at your cubicle (and thus infecting everyone else in the process, and driving the sysadmin (me), into a fury that could get you fired).

    The UBCD has been a true game changer for my business. Not only is it ultra-powerful, but it's free.

    Many small companies can't afford the firepower needed to combat the hacker thugs out there today, but with this solution, you are on the same playing field as multi-billion dollar corporations, like any of the ones I used to work for.

    I'm a big fan of the kind of excellence the UBCD folks are providing, and it gives me great pleasure to recommend them with 5 stars. I'd give them 100, or even 100,000 if I could.

    Keep up the great work folks!

    "Excellent product and it's free"

    May 4, 2009  |   By DC_

    Version: UBCD4Win 3.20

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    No Cons for me.

    Summary

    "A tool anyone should have."

    April 9, 2009  |   By Vurk

    Version: UBCD4Win 3.20

    Pros

    One of the best tools a knowledgeable person can have to help get them out of a tight spot.

    Cons

    Slow to load, doesn't solve every problem. Not very usable to people who are not good with or are still afraid of computers.

    Summary

    If you are having a problem with an idenifiable cause, or need to recover your data from a crashed and unbootable system, this disk is a valuable resource.
    If you dont really know what you are doing, or your problem has vague or unidentifiable symptoms, this disk will not help.
    Also, this disk will not protect you from problems that should have been prevented by an up-to-date antivirus program.

    "Very many useful services but not everything you need!"

    March 30, 2009  |   By eoliverau

    Version: UBCD4Win 3.20

    Pros

    Lots of useful programs and they are generally easy to use; boots easily without unexpected side-effects; well structured. What it does do, it does very well. One of the best collections of useful tools anywhere.

    Cons

    Advertised description implies that it solves every recovery problem; it doesn't. I still have the problem I started with, even though lots of other useful things have been achieved. Needs clearer advice re what to do for particular problem states.

    Summary

    It seems that it is mainly directed to users who already know what their problem is to a very high degree of precision, and who can then choose the right utilities to fix it. But when there is a mysterious behaviour that does not have an evident cause or solution, there is no guidance as to what steps to take to trace the fault and eliminate it.

    March 6, 2009  |   By jafinnie

    Version: UBCD4Win 3.20

    Pros

    none, couldn't use it.

    Cons

    on a single user box with me as administrator the program refused to open saying that I needed administrator privledges.

    Summary

    useless if it won't allow you to use it.

    November 29, 2008  |   By paeagle

    Version: UBCD4Win 3.20

    Pros

    I Dont Know, did not use it. I uninstalled the program. With this many potentially unwanted programI cant see any Pro's coming from this software.

    Cons

    Potentially Unwanted Program's. Tool-NirCmd, Tool-Wget, Port Scan -Angry, Remadm-VncVeiw, Generic PUP.X.

    Summary

    Tool-NirCmd type: Tool subtype: Tool. Tool-Wget type: program subtype: win32 not a virus or trojan but, the application can bee misused by certain pieces of malware in order to facilitate remote downloads. Port Scan Angry, Remadm-VncVeiw, Generi PUP.X, are type: programs subtype: win32 Dont know what they are but it says you may have legal obligation's with regard to removing this software. I use McAfee anti virus and fire wall you can not remove this stuff with it ,you have to finish installation and use the uninstall in the program to get rid of it. BOTTOM LINE: I dont trust this program. Maybe its a good program but Iam not taking chances.
