aka Muttley, try to disconnect 5 USB devices using that method and then try to disconnect the same 5 USB devices with this program. Then you'll see the difference... It's just much easier, and requires less clicks in diferent places! ;)

JCATech on 2008-09-23 20:41

I'm using this program for over 8 months without any problem.
It works great, a run an autoit script that close Pstart and other custom programs from my USB drive and then executes the USB Disk Ejector.

has been know to have download malware such as ad gens and there for i would suggest no one go there

FDRC on 2010-04-08 14:39

I just downloaded it using ignoremail. They record your IP address when you download the file, so spoof it if you don't want them to see it. But here's the problem with the software: the executable file opens, but there is no on-screen keyboard anywhere. I was ready to start clicking away to test the product, but there isn't even a keyboard to use. The program is pretty much useless. Even the link that it has so you can visit the homepage takes you to a completely different product. I don't know why this thing is even online.

Midas on 2017-11-30 19:43

I tested MOK on Windows 7 x64 and it worked as expected, so I'm upvoting it.

juvera: there's a version with install/uninstall support but the other one should be portable... should we retest?
