  1. Review - ImgBurn

    2.5.8.0 (Sep 30, 2014)

    This used to be a staple in my software tool box but now the new version is bundled with "crapware" OpenCandy which captures your data and sends it to adware vendors. A real pitty as this was good software. Why do developers do this to the user base? If it is about money, then go shareware with the release. I for one will not use softeware that installs this sort of thing..
    Author, please remove the OpenCandy crapware...Please!!

  2. Review - Save.me 64-bit

    2.1.5 (Aug 10, 2014)

    Tried it, seemed to work ok, but then kept getting messages that it had stopped working. It would hang my system...and was not able to terminate it...even with the task manager, it would not delete, said it was open and needed to be closed.
    Finally had to reboot and delete the data and exe file.
    Nice idea but has too many bugs to be useful...

  3. Review - Mozilla Firefox (Beta)

    31.0 Beta 6 (Jul 1, 2014)

    I switched to Pale Moon some time ago and never looked back. Firefox used to be the main application on my systems but no more...I like innovation and progress as well as the next guy but they have to work properly and be stable...

  4. Review - FileZilla v3 for Windows

    3.8.0 (Mar 29, 2014)

    AVG reports that the file contains a trojan and deleted it from my download area, I thought the files on betanews had been scanned for this type of junk..am I wrong in that??

  5. Review - Classic Shell

    4.0.2 (Dec 27, 2013)

    Very good program and useful. It has one problem which is coupled with "actual Multiple Monitors" . If you are running AMM, and install CS, you will get a second start icon in the upper left side of your screen. The cause(so reported) is that AMM had no way to communicate properly with CS. Apparently this is being worked on by AMM and CS. I have tried outher start menu programs which do not seem to have this problem. I have switched to another shell menu program until this glitch is fixed and when fixed, I will return to Classic Shell which I prefer over all i have seen so far. I deducted 1 point for the menu icon issue..

  6. Comment - Manage Windows files with Multi Commander 1.10

    4.0.2 (Jul 19, 2011 - 9:40 AM)

    Author has done an excellent job with this product. It reminds me of a text shell from the past which served the DOS arena very well. I am still feeling my way around and like what I see so far. I have been using DirOpus from GpSoft which ,IMHO, is the most comprehensive and functional shell out there. It is not free but is rock solid and is highly customizable.

    I will continue to watch this product. it is always nice to have an alternate.

  7. Comment - Paragon Hard Disk Manager 11 Professional: The full review

    4.0.2 (May 4, 2011 - 9:00 AM)

    I just emailed sales at Paragon to find out if I could install the suite on both my laptop and desktop and within 5 min i received an email back saying my message was deleted without being read due to my inquiry was classified as ++spam++. Nice! They just lost a sale. If companies post instructions for inquiries, they should make sure they are read by a person instead of some automated process.
    Too bad,I will stick with Diskeeper...

  8. Comment - The Bat! 5.0 improves comm features and email management

    4.0.2 (Apr 9, 2011 - 8:07 PM)

    If you like to have to "fiddle" with each email just to read it, then this pgm is for you. If you like having to load each HTML email in your browser just to see what is there, then this pgm is for you. I personally like to see my emails as they were sent to me without having to "fiddle" with it just to read it. Touted as "security" but IMHO is a cumbersome interface. There are a number of good free clients out there that are as good or better.

  9. Comment - Without auto-update, 2 million users downloaded IE9 RC

    4.0.2 (Feb 16, 2011 - 5:11 PM)

    Win7 updates attempted to install IE9 but failed with a vague error message saying IE9 did not finish. That's it...no details, no clue as to what is wrong. Looked up on Web and shows all sorts of hoops I have to jump through to get IE to install...Why??...FF installed, Opera installed fine...Why not IE....I will stay with FF...

  10. Comment - After Tenenbaum, who will take back the music industry from the RIAA?

    4.0.2 (Aug 3, 2009 - 12:54 PM)

    There is a simple answer for all this Riaa stuff. Without consumers, the RIAA has no product. So as consumers I suggest that any company/artist/record or what ever that is represented by the RIAA is Totally boycotted forever. Dont buy their products, music or what ever and it will soon stop.
