Seems no longer dangerous

Maybe no longer dangerous. Recent virustotal scans of installer and portable download show 0 threats, and the website states that they removed some kind of advertising tool (OpenCandy) as of 2016-02-15.



Awesome app, been using for many years

about Dexpot · ·

Dexpot is one of my favorite apps of any type. I have been using it for several years and have never had a single issue with it. Its feature set is quite extensive. I've never experienced crashes of other instabilities. The worst I've encountered is that a small number of apps show up on all desktops and cannot be restricted to a single desktop. But these apps are few and far between, and I don't use them frequently, so I've never bothered looking for a solution. I just live with that quirk.

Can the 'warning' be removed? I believe it is obsolete for this app. I have installed dexpot on multiple machines (all using Win7 home or Win7 pro), they all had either Avast, Symantec, McAfee or Malwarebytes - none of which complained about dexpot or its installer. Perhaps other people are downloading dexpot from download sites that bundle their installers with adware? You can download dexpot directly from the developer's website.

Supposed adware?

about Dexpot · ·

I've had 0 issues with viruses adware/etc, it doesn't behave too well with ObjectDock often, but other than that it works great even with multiple monitors and can be great if you need more than one 'workspace' of sorts. I've used it for over a year this time, and have used it in the past as well.

[Edited by Teleclast, April 14]
My only gripe really are issues with interactions with a few other applications I use (it works with most of them swimmingly), and the fact that dexpot has the possibility to take up a lot of hotkeys which unfortunately... windows also enjoys taking up.


Full of detected viruses from virustotal scan

I scanned the installer and the result is here as 8 detected - not recommended to use this app :(

Just want to point out that they seem to have cleaned up the installer. Scanned the current download and found found only one issue 'BehavesLike.Win32.Tool.rc' which sounds benign/expected.

This is the most beautiful desktop virtualisation program


It can also show miniatures of all your desktops

It can also show a miniature of all your desktops in your task bar's info area, with icons of the open windows on them. You know, like that other OS... ;)

Been using it for some years now, and keeps getting better and better. Runs smoothly on Win 7 and the plugins give it a nice eye candy. The only "complain" that I have, if you could call it so, are the icons, which are low quality. But maybe I'm just too picky :P All in all, a great piece of software.

Dexpot was a brilliant find, it has installed and works without any problems on both my XP Pro and Windows 7 Machines and works well with the dual-screen setup on my XP box effectively doubling the desktop capacity (ie if you choose 5 desktops using Dexpot you have the equivalent of 10...all the way up to dexpots 20 desktops giving you the capacity for 40!!)
