Winhotspot Reviews

Seriously ugly application

about Winhotspot and inSSIDer · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

Looking at the screenshots, I did not think of this as an alternative to try.

Perhaps it does not surprise me to learn from the comments that this comes with malware. Furthermore, the website is also really ugly and full of spam. The screenshots also show the application expects you to put in a password for wireless points.

How does the creator expect anybody to trust such a poorly designed and poorly implemented application with wireless point passwords? I also do not trust all the likes given to this alternativeTo entry, which has put it at the top of alternatives to inSSIDer.

Terrible.

Hello Boss, All Cnet installers will include offers to support developer.

Thanks for your negative comments.

Above all, it does not work but only crashes instantly. This is on Windows 10.

Adware and possible trojan -- installs without your permission

about Winhotspot · · Helpful Not helpful

The installer attempts to download and install adware, which it gives you the option to de-select, but it tries to trick you into clicking "OK" and installing it anyway.

On top of that, it attempts to download something called "LUCKY SAVINGS-INTERNALINSTALLER.EXE" WITHOUT your consent or knowledge. There is no option to not install this. Oh, and it gets WORSE. When you attempt to uninstall Lucky Savings, it tries to install some DNS "fixer" which you absolutely don't need, and Symantec detects it as "Trojan.dropper". This is atrocious behavior, and incredibly shady, and I would recommend NOT downloading this software.

AVOID THIS SOFTWARE AT ALL COSTS.

please do not select the tool bar installer..
I have used somoto installer to earn few bucks which helps me.

Please allow with me for few more days.. I will change the installer.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

As of 4/23/2013, you're still using the Somoto installer, and your software makes several requests to download "bundlesweetimsetup.exe", "FastFreeConverter_Somoto.exe", and "DefaultTabSetup.exe". I could not even download the Winhotspot installer in Chrome, since it's flagged as a malicious file. If you're truly looking to support yourself with free software, just ask for donations, instead of bundling crap like this.

Hi,
Please check the new version it has a installer and uninstaller also.

Thanks
