    How many user's are using AskVG program without problem?


    Hello to all,
    I am interested in the program AskVG, which allows me to put a start orb back on the taskbar. My only concern is if it is highly regarded and stable. How many members are using it with success. Any opinions, experiences, alternatives or guesses are greatly appreciated! Thanks for any assistance!

    do you mean the start8 software?

    it's not actually written by VG, but stardock.

    both are highly respected and you can trust their software.

    Hello Sir,
    Thank you, the one I saw was the on indicated in the URL in the previous answer. I believe it is called Vistart by AskVG!
    Appreciate any assistance. Been using a start orb for a long time...

    Well I guess I read it wrong. Thanks!!! Do you use either product? You're above statement seems to indicate that you endorse the
    start8. I don't have a backup drive yet and have had to reload 4 times and I am trying to avoid adding something that might cause another reinstall and reloading. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    i don't use any of the products myself, as i'm really not keen on 8 at the moment, and only use it if i'm really bored and feeling geekily masochistic.

    if i were to use one, i would probably go for start8.

    LOL thank you! That is a perfect term, it happens to me, such as now. If this W8 didn't run so much faster than the Ubuntu I was geekily using, I leave it alone. If I can get around the metro stuff, I think this W8 is working great!!
    Mounds of thanks
