This software does exactly what it said it would do. My internet speed increased by 40% after making some changes. I also like the ability to change my dns settings easily versus the cumbersome process required in Windows. All in all, I am very happy to get this free license!Sep 27, 2023 at 10:39 am #21582625DJGuest
Be very careful with this software, it alters some crucial setting with no warning.
It downloaded and installed easily. I wanted to look at what it can do before it did anything, so I went to the advanced settings, avoiding letting it run on auto and probably mess with the PC settings. It was already changing settings, despite me giving it no authorisation to do so. My DNS settings had been set to Quad9 ones – 126.96.36.199 for IPV4 etc, but this software had already changed it to 188.8.131.52, which is for the Google DNS servers. The last thing that I want is for Google to read every IP address that I want to go to, I’m into privacy and security, not providing the people (Google) with this information who used to have a slogan that went “Don’t be evil’ then turned out to one of the most evil online businesses ever. I couldn’t connect three different paid for VPN services that I have after this software had messed with my device. There were quite a few other settings that NetOptimizer had changed, without my permission.
I was fortunate in that I had installed this using virtualisation, so I could quickly revert back to my device to its usual state and avoid NetOptimizer messing seriously with my device. I see that someone else has said that they have no internet after installing this cr*p software. I hope that they can use either a restore point or have made regular backups that they can revert to.
This software should not be released like this, so as people who cannot save their machines from its actions putting it onto their device. Why the hell is it changing settings such as those I mention above, without the user agreeing to it doing so?
Thanks for the great write-up, NRH. I do not think many realize what kind of instrument this is and what it can do to actually cause issues on the system..maybe not today but down the road.
I thot I was the only 1 who got conflicts when installed it and now see I am not. What’s really odd is seeing all the positive reviews online. Granted 85% of them are old so wondering if this program got tweaked the wrong way in upgrades.Sep 27, 2023 at 4:09 pm #21583644TonyGuest
I installed the program on a flash drive, optimized my internet connection,
restarted my computer and things started!
My connection to the Internet did not break and did not . . .disappeared !Sep 28, 2023 at 5:03 am #21585764ReyGuest
