@ YoKenny

This software was first released on 9 August 2007 as beta Version 1.0

Latest update was on 07 January 2010 Version 7.0

So, it is more than 30 days old already

Version 7.0 is not 30 days old its only 31-7=24 days from their site.

On fileforum (January 28, 2010) its only been there 3 days with 2 negative reviews already by Vivek Kowshik and BIL:

@ YoKenny

I didn't know you was talking abt Version 7.0.

Yes, Version 7.0 is has not reached 30 days

This thread was created to gather the opinion of Avast forum users on Puran Defrag not to bang different products against it.

I am not selling this software

YoKenny,
Why the negative attitude ???
If you personally don't like it, that's your prerogative but not a reason to get pesky .  :o

Its not that I don't like its just that I have been burned by nagware before.

Note that avast! is not listed

Examples of nagware are Windows Genuine Advantage, WinRAR, WinZip, mIRC, BitDefender 2009 Free Edition, AVG, Avira and Snood. Some of these programs pop-up a window after their trial period is up telling the user to buy the program (or for WGA, to install a genuine copy of Windows). LimeWire or Antivir similarly reminds the user to update to the Pro version, although the free version is not just a free trial.

What is Nagware?
Quote
Nagware, also called guiltware or annoyware, is a pop-up reminder that appears with trial versions of computer programs. Many trial versions of games, programs or additional features use nagware to alert the user to pay or register after the trial period has expired. The term derives its name from its function of “nagging” the user to take a specific action.

Many programming companies like to offer short trial periods of their software, understanding that a user may not be willing to buy the program unless they can fully explore it. These trials, called shareware, allow either full program access or a stripped down version of the program. Most shareware trials have a time limit on them, either of total minutes the program is used, or a set period of time, usually no more than 30 days. After this limit is up, attempts to open or close the program result in nagware windows.

If after 30 days it still works unhampered without "nagging" me to purchase the full version then I will be pleasantly surprised.

Some programs stop "nagging" after 30 days, think latest Ad-Aware works like that.....

Just tried Boot Time Defrag feature. It did the boot defrag without issues (Win XP SP3 32bit).

File placement optimization seems to be good (checked with HighlightSelectedFile  v1.9, by RobL in MyDefrag).

Far better that Auslogic or Defraggler. A good option for those that dislike MyDefrag'interface Map disk. Boot Time Defrag feature is a surplus value for a FREE defrag; in fact I known only a free defrag that has boot time feature: UltraDefrag.

I personally let Win 7 take care of the defragging issue. :)

+1, since Vista, so on 7 as well now, it's the best way >>> best results, ie perceptible results on performance.

I only understood why YoKenny loves Internet Explorer after I visited the Hostsman Forum. 8)

I found out that he is one of the moderators there.

So no wonder why he hates Firefox and loves IE

No Offense. Just an observation.

Maybe, just Maybe, He has some other reason than the nagware reason for his negative responses here

What should I call IE?  ;D

Just Joking

And it was nice to hear all your opinions

I did a boot time defrag and the results were fantastic. My system is more fast than before. I had Perfect Disk before using this software

So I would rate Puran Defrag as more better than Perfect Disk atleast on my system

Gotta use the boot time defrag,,,
