File Hippo or I guess FileHippo was introduced it me a few years ago. A great website to download software.
They offer a program that automatically searches your device and updates it
Using my laptop I installed the program months ago and once in a while updates occurred and then a week ago I begin getting pop ups. Crap like warning your system may be infected call 1-800-Infected. These people are in some foreign land and they offer to log onto your system and repair it.
Yesterday I called 1-800-your-dicked and asked the Windows (crap) technician to give me his checking account and password and let me in there to look for issues. He refused.
I then went back to File Hippo and down loaded a program to remove the spy ware off my laptop. Worked like a champ but lost one file and ultimately I'll end up loosing everything due to forced re-installation of Windows 7.
Someone made a comment and states that people like me are lazy. Going to one website that offers a one stop shop to get free software and updates. This person is an idiot.
Occasionally I type in the name of the website or company then follow it with the word review.
Today I did that and surprise File Hippo is installing tracking software to enhance profits.
I recommend anyone and everyone to show the owners of File Hippo that screwing your innocent unsuspecting customer base a lesson. Screwing us with this type of crap to 100% never go back. I will from this point on visit their website for the names and reviews of the software but I will never ever trust them again.
File Hippo owners Go To Hell. Hope you see a serious drop in revenue from your ads. A
visitor like myself would normally click around and you'd get a dozen impressions as I checked the latest software you offered but never again.
