    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

    November 9, 2013  |   By tryitouts

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    Not a one!

    Cons

    This program installs then doesn't run correctly. On top of it, it adds MORE programs you didn't want, never asking if you want to install them or not. Avoid it!

    "Faster than HTTrack"

    October 22, 2013  |   By petersykes58

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    Fast downloads and it's free.

    Cons

    Interface take a while to work out.

    Summary

    This program is like Concord vs the Wright Brothers when it comes to speed compared to its main competitor, HTTrack. Once you get the hang of things it does its job very well. My only real complaint is number of messages it sends telling you what it is doing. It's a minor complaint, however, and I'll take this over HTTrack any day.

    "Works well (windows7)"

    October 12, 2013  |   By ChazzPink

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    I've just downloaded a 3000 page site with 12,000 images and a few videos, totalling just under 1 gig. It's done the job well.

    Cons

    None found so far.

    Summary

    I'm using Win7. I made sure the file I downloaded was the correct size (2.9mb). I found nothing dodgy had been installed and it had automatically installed into the x86 compatible program drawer. I reckon some of the previous comments must either be professionals putting down free products or people mixing up their download files.

    "Incomprehensible user interface"

    September 10, 2013  |   By mark4asp

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    I can't see any pros at all

    Cons

    I could not get it to download a website.

    Summary

    In theory the UI for this program should be simple: One should only need to enter a URL and a folder to download it to. Then click a Go button. In practice this program has the most oblique UI I've ever seen for such a simple product. Astounding incompetence.

    "PDF CREATOR Jammed with spyware"

    March 26, 2013  |   By Chris_C_K

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    print to a pdf

    Cons

    It will Hijack your computer, load MixiDJ crap all through your programs files and registry. Avoid at all costs. The fact that this is allowed is terrible. Sourceforge should be more responsible and BLOCK any more access to this terrible download.

    Summary

    SourceForge now disseminates malware via programs like PDF Creator which is jammed packed with malware like MixiDJ. Avoid at all costs.

    "Installs spyware"

    February 3, 2013  |   By bstraughan

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    May work if you give it all the permissions it requires.

    Cons

    Loads spyware via bundled download. Changes your homepage. Switches your default web search to Conduit through a sketchy add-on called "mixi-dj". Takes a good while to remove it all. See http://www.411-spyware.com/remove-mixi-dj-toolbar for instructions.

    Summary

    Installs spyware, hijacks homepage and search engine. Avoid.

    "Avoid unless you want them to hack your details"

    January 20, 2013  |   By pissedoffatwsd

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    None! what a piece of ****.

    Cons

    For starters it didn't work, so I removed it, but get this the ***** used the login details I'd entered (for the site that didn't download) and logged into the site! As the site doesn't allow multiple logins, they've pissed me off no end. Password will be changed when possible.

    Summary

    Don't trust these bastards and avoid this piece of spyware.

    "Didn't work, installed crapware I opted not to install"

    January 16, 2013  |   By sdfassdfasf

    Version: WinWSD WebSite Downloader 1.1

    Pros

    None, it didn't work.

    Cons

    On my Windows 7, 64 bit, could not create a new project. It produced a dialog box that just regenerates itself when you hit OK. I had to reboot to get rid of it. Windows task manager could not get rid of it. It installed it's "Iminent" toolbar even though I had unchecked that option. Installed something called InfoAtoms which can't be uninstalled by the usual method in Windows.
