"DON'T DO IT you only get problems"

June 12, 2012  |  By promytius

 |  Version: WebCam Spy 4.0

Pros

There are no pros here, just unfindable programs, legacy registry entries, and see Cons for more

Cons

This is crap. You get no software, just a hidden program that will not uninstall even with REVO Pro. It is there in the tray but I cannot find it. After the "install" that goes to a very suspect folder - they chose \windows\system32
etdd\mru\ms\mg !!! You get sent to a website where you can PAY (remember this was "FREE") for software to access whatever it was that installed.

Summary

RIPOFF - and I think DANGEROUS, as it won't go away, it created a hole in my firewall, and for all I know I'm now under some thug's control from Inbekacantstan...
Avoid this error.

"Product does nothing"

July 13, 2011  |  By Jerry9254

 |  Version: WebCam Spy 4.0

Pros

There are none.

Cons

Attempts to overwrite DLL files, no program group, no shortcut, no executable. Found the uninstall file, however immediately after uninstalling I received a hit from my anti-virus software.

Summary

If you're skeptical of on-line reviews and think you might try this anyway--don't. Save yourself the curiosity and the hassle.

"Trash. Pure Trash."

April 06, 2011  |  By x_djmobo_x

 |  Version: WebCam Spy 4.0

Pros

None. This thing is garbage.

Cons

Did not install as advertised on site. Does not have a shortcut, does not even exist after install. Upon restart was prompted asking what program I want to use to open dll files. My computer should not be asking me this.

Summary

I need help getting rid of this horrid thing. I told it not to replace files when it asked, so I'm hoping I avoided most serious damage. However, my computer is telling me that the folder it was installed to does not exist, even after un-hiding files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

NOTHING about it is worthwhile.
