Windriver Expert v1.7
Awhile back I recomended this app listed at CNET downloads as "FREE" right here. Once I downloded and used it I thought it was a nice tool. Nowhere did it mention that it was shareware. Not at CNET's site nor in the ini or readme file. No splash screen saying, "Try out", nothing.

I made changes to my system yesterday so thought I'd do a new driver backup. All I get now is an expiration notice. I can't track down the registry entries for it so uninstalling/reinstalling was no help. Obviously my secure backup is useless.

The company lied, it is not free and at a requested $29.00 overpriced by far. I don't mind shareware, everyone's entitled to make a profit on their work but deceit is not cool. My advice, never buy anything from Hunter Soft.

I'm sorry for even recommending it.

Thanks for the info, griffin. I tried to run it again & had same results as you.

It's history. I got rid of that sneakyware very fast. Thank goodness I monitor ALL installs with Total Uninstall, which is free, no strings, no tricks.

If you run across a program that does what windriver did, let everyone know. It's a good idea -- I might even pay for something like it, but NEVER to an outfit that practices trickery like hunter soft did.
