3.9 RC1 Build 1194 (May 5, 2012)
Sorry for this review, but it doesn't seem to be avoidable. As long as I work with Win 7 64 FDM (3.8.x as well as 3.9.x) is not capable of calculating a correct bandwidth (at least it looks like). Fact: Most files are downloaded either with 2 chunks and a download speed, which is 20% (sometimes less than 10%) of - for example - DownThemAll. No way to change this behavior and also (that's the major reason why you can read this review) no chance to tell the developers on their forum this fact. Always I get the reply 'can not be reproduced', what I - sorry for this - can not ant therefore will not believe.
It seems that FDM works for the majority of users - and that's enough.
As a conclusion: If it works for you - be happy and use it (since it has very interesting features. If it doesn't work don't wait for the developer team to fix any bug - it's very unlikely that your message is processed (exception: Many other users tell the same).
Poor working program, poor forum (at least for me, sorry) - poor rating: 1 - PERIOD.
15.12 (Jan 14, 2012)
The poorest version EVER!
I can't start it as Admin on WIN 7 64 (nor by using 'RUN AS...' neither logged in as Admin!!!)... it only run with restricted user rights - BOOOHHH!!
I prefer ProcessHacker - it works without a problem for all users!
What a POOR company which claim to be able to produce 'operating systems', but offer an 'advanced' process manager which refuse to work with admin rights.
0.9.9.59 Beta (Sep 1, 2011)
Sorry, but as a program which is designed to work together with major mail clients it should be able to find a Thunderbird profile even if this Thunderbird isn't installed, but only used as unZipped Add. Thunderbird is known to use a well known path in Windows systems... which Spamihilator doesn't find?!?!?
Additionally there is no possibility to configure it to work with additional Mail accounts?!? Who in the world (except the REAL greenhorns, sorry to say that) does only use one mail account???
So in my eyes there is still a lot of work to do on Spamihilator to make it a useful program... without even a functionality test I tend to rate it too positive - that's the reason for 3 *.
3.4.0 RC1 (May 25, 2011)
I can't believe it... since several weeks I only found many small bugs. Now I wanted to work on some documents and... I can't find any.
LibreOffice k i l l e d several documents (I assume this happened as a result of the last crash. So I only can reume, LibreOffice is simply for those people, who are brave enough to risk even severe data loss. Not only the last letter has been killed, also some *.ott (which means Templates), which I now can create completely new - very b a d!
I wanted to give LO a 'chance', but under the given circumstances I'll removit from my disk.
All of you, who go on using it: Make security copies of every single file you use and - important - don't open these copies directly with LO (so that the path to these copies can't be found by LO), but copy the to your working folder.
Also I had several severe problems using a very simple printer... with files, I worked without any problem before (*odt).
Perhaps I give it a try after a major update (4.0 or so), but for now I'm fed up with this software, which generated a few hours of u n e c e s s a r y work.

Excuse me not reviewing a software, which promises something it only can fulfill in a very limited way.
I often read about 'secure' file sharing because of the use of e.g. IP-Filters. This is a PURE NONSENSE!!!
Every sharer sends the individual IP around the world with light speed. Do you seriously want to tell me, only companies log a sharer's IP? Every 'freelancer' (money greedy people) can offer their 'support' to such companies... and their IP's hardly will ever be blocked (because they are simply as temporal as the file sharer's IP. And in fact only an IP, the exact time stamp, a 'protected' file is necessary... and every IP filter is a nice TOY, but for sure nothing better.
For the software itself I assume one can give 4 to 5 *, but for the f.a.l.s.e and m.i.s.l.e.a.d.i.n.g promises made I give 1*!
The users believe these fairy tales and are shocked, when they are sued. And, of course, in such a case you as the developer are n.e.v.e.r responsible - BLAMEFUL!
