    "Do NOT Install | Program Does Work | Hard to Uninstall!"

    August 8, 2011  |   By compuable

    Pros

    No Pros AT ALL: I used to use ePrompter and loved it (way back when) but it is apparently no longer being updated. The final upgrade/update of ePrompter download SR120 was released on 8/29/08 and the Pop Peeper program is vastly superior in all ways.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the program has apparently been abandoned by the developer Tiburon Technology.

    Summary

    The program installs OK but then just sits there on the taskbar not functioning properly but worse yet; not even warning the user that there is a problem. Also it was a nightmare to uninstall. Said that it had been completely uninstalled, but it actually was not. It was no longer in the Add/Remove list or program list and left lots of junk files in the Windows registry (that I had to painstakingly remove manually).

    On the developer's support forum the Admin asks for "Patience and hope for devoted ePrompter users waiting and want to help fix ePrompter." However the program is no longer being updated (the final ePrompter download SR120 was released on 8/29/08) and no longer functions properly so it is not a worthwhile download IMO.

    On the bright side of things, I tried out and currently use the Pop Peeper program; which is vastly superior to ePrompter in all ways. I have attended many computer-related as well as freeware-related forums over the years and I have yet to see any major bugs, security flaws etc. reported or even a single 'credible' negative review of Pop Peeper.

    You can download the Pop Peeper program from CNET here:

    Hi...

    Above I meant to type: "Do NOT Install | Program Does NOT Work | Hard to Uninstall!"

    Sorry for the TYPO.
