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.

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!!)

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.
