Editors' Review

Subject Search Scanner offers users advanced search features to quickly locate important files. Unfortunately, an eyesore of a user interface and sketchy performance left few good impressions.

During the installation process, the program takes over your entire screen with an annoying PowerPoint presentation, complete with music and bullet points. The user interface features a white-on-black color scheme that is very hard on the eyes. The tabs let you navigate the program date, time, and advanced settings. Performing a search requires that you enter your keyword, select the files you want to include in the search, and choose the file extensions. The first time around, we entered our keyword and selected our search parameters, but a few seconds into our search, our computer crashed and we were forced to reboot. On our second go, we entered the same information and were able to pull up search results according to search parameters, without any issues. A separate window containing the search report appeared, and we were able to view the findings and their relevancy to our inputted search information.

The program includes a built-in Help menu, but it doesn't offer any kind of search functionality, and didn't offer us any explanation for our initial issues. A trial restriction limits the number of displayed results. Despite a few good outcomes, this program's poor interface and spotty performance leaves us unable to recommend it.
