"What's Up With The Name?"

October 20, 2014  |  By subbitz

 |  Version: Xenu's Link Sleuth 1.3.8

Pros

Scary name precludes me from downloading it.

Cons

I wouldn't know. Name raises too many suspicions to consider it.

Summary

Why would I download a program named after a Scientology character? Red flag,or what?

"Adware and malware downloads with Xenu's link slueth"

May 16, 2014  |  By Rolobarb

 |  Version: Xenu's Link Sleuth 1.3.8

Pros

NONE! Nothing good to say. It's a virus.

Cons

LOOK OUT!!! This changes your home page, error handling, search engine and adds an invasive toolbar. The positive feedback on here must be faked by the people who added the adware. I was led here by a post criticizing another software download which must have also been put there by the people who added the malware/virus here. Don't be fooled.

Summary

ADWARE MALWARE VIRUS Stay away!

None - Installed malware

"Xenu's Link Sleuth keeps me honest"

October 12, 2010  |  By mheffler

 |  Version: Xenu's Link Sleuth 1.3.8

Pros

This is an exceptional tool for web page integrity. I use it primarily for creating web pages for non-profit organizations so the price can't be beat. When I moved to a new operating system or computer, the author worked with me to repair some bugs.

Cons

I can't think of anything I do not like. Too many broken links come frmo my limited testing environment and not the product.

Summary

My web pages have far fewer problems since I run Xenu's Link Sleuth on every page I create.
