I attempted to install a program called WinFilter, which
supposedly is a utility to hide icons and could also function as a parental
control system. I'm not running some exotic build of a brand new operating
system. I m running Windows Xp Pro Service Pack 1(as I haven't updated to sp2
since I formated a couple weeks ago ) on a very descent system. To be specific
i'm using a AMD Athlon 64 4000 with an ATI Radeon 800 graphics card and a GB of
DDR PC 3200 ram.
This program though I've tried repeatedly to install it, and supposedly have
installed it(at least according to the installer) about 8 times it doesn't show
up on my system. That is no start menu icons, no quick launch icons no desktop
icons and apprently no install folder. I'm sure it did do 'something' though my
antivirus hasn't detected it yet, and I have to run a spyware scan.
The only way I could find to even launch the program was after I ran the
installer, leave the box checked to 'launch the program' then all it did was
give me the windows error beep.
This program is supposed to run on "Platform: Windows XP or later" but I really
don't see it happening. Here's the deal, plain and simple if you make
software(and claim it does something more then beep) have it actually install on
the end users computer, please. This is a waste of time download from what I can
see but, if by some chance your looking for a program that beeps at you and
takes your money maybe this will be ideal.
