What are people saying about Start Menu 8

Max User More ExpirationWare. No thanks.

I tried this for a year -- then it was trouble to remove, but I found a free version that has expiration date and which works much better.

Toni User "After you purchase Start Menu 8, it may be used for 12 months."

it stops working after 12 months?
ewww.. what's the point ???
better go then with the free, open-source classic shell!

Daniel User More ExpirationWare. No thanks.
Right, forget such "deals"
SW like this is just pain in the a..

robin User Classic Shell is the best one for start menu. It's free too!
Mar 16 2017 at 9:09am Copy Link
RichU So far, I like the look and function. So... try it for 12 months, Is that including updates? But not upgrades to a new version? Or do you lose it if you allow auto updates.

jack hath How is the different from / better than CLASSIC SHELL?
Jun 2 2018 at 11:29am Copy Link
Joe M I don't know which one is better. It is probably a personal matter. Some may prefer Classic Shell and others prefer Start Menu 8. Try them both and decide for yourself.
The one main difference between the 2 is Classic Shell is not going to updated in the future. I assume that Start Menu 8 will be updated as necessary.

Bart User I get an virus error when i click the download software:
Potentialy unwanted program found
by Esest NOD32 Antivirus
Found in: sm8-setup-November2018.exe
Dec 1 2018 at 11:26am Copy Link
Robert User Malwarebytes also flags the program as a p.u.p. I believe both antimalware programs flag most registry cleaning and windows optimization programs as potentially unwanted programs. That is probably because these programs are a bit invasive. Doesn't mean that the so-called p.u.p. is bad. If you really like the program you can set up your antivirus program to ignore the p.u..p. Notice it does not say that the p.u.p. is malware. I get a bit tired of Malwarebytes telling me what programs not to put on my computer. Do you really think that BitsDuJour which is a respected download site is going to give you malware? I think not.

Robert Hare I see that others are holding the same sentiment as me. I 'get' that most other IOBit software can, does (and should) require periodical 'renewal' at a nominal fee because ASC, Malware Fighter, Driver Booster, Defrag Pro, etc. require staying on top of the latest threats and changes that face us all, but requiring that Start Menu require perpetual 'renewal' of a license to continue using it? Come on ... that's more than a bit over the top. I could see maybe offering this six month trial and then if you like it pay a ONE-TIME nominal fee for a *permanent* (lifetime) license, but not perpetual renewal. For the record, I use 7 IOBit products, all on their fourth and fifth years of renewable licenses, so this isn't an overall slam of the company, just a public shaming of this one particular utility (if it does indeed require 'perpetual' renewals).

BackuPs Why does the website say it costs 9,99 euro and here 3,99 usd ?

"After you purchase Start Menu 8, it may be used for 6 months."

So after 6 months one has to buy it anyway?
May 16 2020 at 6:08am Copy Link
John User Sorry, but the Fine Print today makes me not want to even download or try this program:

"After you purchase Start Menu 8 it may be used for 6 months and will not function after that unless you renew your subscription.
Upgrades to future versions of the software will require additional payment. Installing a new version may overwrite the existing version and invalidate your license key."

BTW, this listing doesn't show how much it is to purchase Start Menu 8, but 6 months with no updates? No thank you.

BackuPs Does this work on windows 11?
Jan 14 2022 at 3:00am Copy Link
Jerry Voletto 3 virus scanners told me the zip file should not be downloaded as there has been corruption to the zipped files.
Does anyone else know this?
Jan 14 2022 at 10:59am Copy Link
A B What would the renewal price be? The fine print section is pretty thin on details.
