I've used v5 for quite a while and I really liked it. Not happy about this search protect slipping in now.SummaryWould give a higher rating if the Search Protect wasn't in there. It's very difficult to get out of a computer once it's in there.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Why would CNET even offer this garbage, much less recommend it?SummaryI read the full end user agreement when I noticed mention of third party software. The agreement states that this software would not be added without your consent, so I decided to continue. The first thing that popped up was a screen asking if I wanted to perform "Express Install" or "Custom Install" of a program called "Search Protect". I was not given the option of not installing it, so I decided to cancel the entire Crystal installation. Much to my surprise, the program was installed anyway and it changed my browser homepage and search provider - all of this without my consent.
Guess I'll be running Malware Bytes to see if anything else was added without my consent...Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (0) (0) 1 stars"spyware+adware"January 24, 2014 | By StigR | Version: CrystalDiskInfo 6.0.4 ProsLots useful info but....Cons... it crashed my C:-drive...
Lots of spy- and adware installed, changed my startup-page and finally made my c: unbootable.
Took a few hours, but now up an running again.SummaryMy recommendation: Do NOT install...Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (0) (0) 4 stars"Works great. Told me things about my disk I never knew."January 02, 2014 | By ddragoo | Version: CrystalDiskInfo 5.6.2 ProsIt just works.ConsReally don't know of any cons.SummaryIf you are concerned about how your hard disk is doing this is the program for you. Each thing it tells you about you disk is easily searchable so you can find out what it means if you get alarms. WAY better than stuff like CHKDSK that comes with your OS. And its free!Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

This software has potential, but it's hindered by adware/spyware that installs automatically without the user's explicit consent. It took me an hour to remove SearchProtect as it managed to copy itself into all of the "program files" folders of my Windows drive.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

I got a whole bunch of add ware programs like tool bars that are hard to remove. I would not use it if I were you.SummaryI downloaded this to check my hard drive to see if it was failing and I got so much garbage from downloading this. I got a whole bunch of add ware programs like tool bars that are hard to remove. I would not use it if I were you. My anti virus kicked on and warned me. BAD BAD BAD!!! And not something that you want when you are dealing with a failing hard drive!!!!!!Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Avoid.Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (0) (0) 1 stars"Main purpose is to install other software"April 27, 2013 | By mikeburek | Version: CrystalDiskInfo 5.6.2 ProsIt can display some neat hard drive info.ConsIt installs OpenCandy, AVG Search Toolbar, Amazon search, and sets Amazon as your default page.
Uninstalling AVG Search Toolbar takes uninstalling from browser, several browser restarts, and uninstalling from Control Panel. There is no option to not install it.
Amazon Search gives you an option to not install it.
OpenCandy - no option to not install, and I'm not sure how to uninstall.SummaryMain purpose is to install other software. I would classify this as Spam/Trojan Horse. There are other utilities that won't sell you out and are still free.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?

CNET Editors reviewed it highly and so I tried it. But it was interesting but that was about it as I really don't need that information churned out daily. I uninstalled it to have more room for the next CNET download.ConsIf I used it on a server, network environment it would be much easier to value it as worth the effort or not. Before that just happens to me it may be sometime. I cannot say it was particular usefulness to me.Summary
Updated on Apr 2, 2013
The software is useful if one needs it. But for the average home user such as I am, it seems more of a curiosity which can be nice to see but unnecessary and occupies disk space which can be used for better purposes.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?
