I just checked the GAOTD forum, and there's a helpful forum post from BuBBY, an admin: "Late Emails? - Use RSS Feed"
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/topic/5296

What the hell? Why not FIX the problem, GAOTD?

Just to be clear when I suspected it to be a virus and double clicked it I had Returnil protection turned on which was offered once on this website but I have the full version ... this allows u to test anything safely and once u restart anything that u did while the protection is on is gone. I would never double click on a virus without taking measures ... ok the uninstall.exe i got it ... but why did it create a irsetup.exe google this file it is known as a trojan . to see where it is created however u have to enable see hidden files and uncheck the hide system folders in the folder options of explorer .

Wow, what pathetic comments. This is a resource extractor, not a file finder. The various resource extractors aren't all the same. This finds a wide range of embedded file types. Although the scanning is quick, some things are slow, such as reading directories/folders, and the window update during scanning. What 330 KB limit? It found resources larger than that. If you use WOT, SiteAdvisor, and even worse, if you can't figure out how to use them, or if you can't figure out how to use this (it works and saves/copies fine, and it doesn't contain any malware), then your parents should return you and request a refund. While past versions had some image-file corruption issues, I didn't notice any with this version.

#27 uninstall.exe is launched by an shortcut in the Allmedia grabber folder in the start menu tree... look at the properties of the shortcut:

"C:\Windows\AllMedia Grabber\uninstall.exe" "/U:C:\Program Files\AllMedia Grabber\Uninstall\uninstall.xml"

it takes uninstall.xml as a command line parameter to tell it what to do to remove the application. Of course you will get an error if you just double click on the uninstall.exe file as you have not given it the XML instruction file to tell it what to do. A litle knowledge is dangerous and in your case caused you to waste time and effort and panic thinking its a virus... simply upload the fle to virustotal.com and get a more informed opinion.

http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/302652c014c05f04acb93e7ed45f9f2f

And why oh why would you double-click on a file you suspect to be a virus? Craaaaazy!
I'm more inclined to believe that is a false positive due to overzealous heuristics rather than proper patern matching of real "virus" code. It's hardley an effective strategy to try and spread a worm, which is what is really suspected, as an unistall program because there is a very good probability it will never be executed by most users so would never propogate!

Sam Green @27, uninstall.exe does uninstall the program. Maybe your antivirus is preventing the program from launching because it thinks it is a virus.

Easy install but AVG and Norton Flagged it for spyware...
Ohhh I know that PGAOTD says it is free of all that... but

DEL and defrag was my response.

After uninstalling I was checking how the uninstalling went. And found that the program had silently saved the found files in it's own program directory with each file suffix in a different directory. I re-downloaded & re-installed the program. The registration for it was still in the registry. Still quite a few things in the program don't seem to work. No viewing/browsing the files it has saved. There is just a file listing, Windows Explorer does more than this. The whole program seems rather crudely done. But it has some uses. I'll keep it for now.

I downloaded, installed, & registered it on XP Pro SP3. I can't see that it really does anything very useful. It did scan & list the files it found but didn't allow me to copy or move them anywhere. It says "Save as an Icon" or "Save as a BMP". Both of which are useless activities in my view. It just seems practically useless. It doesn't "Grab" anything! If it did "Grab" these embedded files it would have a little use. BTW, it is slow examining directories & doesn't sort the file/directory names it finds making it hard to find things in complicated directory systems like mine. The "Set as Wallpaper" didn't work. Uninstalled.

Unfortunately, this program stores its reg data in a Windows CurrentVersion key. When will software developers learn that Windows system areas are not their personal trash ground?

It looks good. After my format, there really isn't any files that I can properly test this on, but at least it didn't freeze when scanning as it did before.

Note: You'll need to allow the app the first time it's run so that it can separately check availability on its own website. You can block it afterward to disable the annoying update message (or just uncheck it in the options).

I downloaded and tried this last time it was offered. It works, and is easy to use, but it mostly picks up UI elements from games and the like, as other commenters have noted. That is not a particularly useful feature, and moreover, it can be done with WinRAR, perpetually free.

PS
What to do with the extracted media? It's protected by copyright laws, so it can't be used anywhere else.

To #29, Gotta read closer, that 39.90 for the Avanced is euros...if you calculate the exchange rate that would be $53.86 at the moment. If you jump at it you could save $1.04 minus exchange fees.

This is an improvement on version 2 which was offered here a few months ago; thank you for updating it.

It does what it does very well, but I can see the point of view of those who question the purpose of it. It's good as a game-ripper but I haven't been able to find much use for it otherwise.

Installed ok and instantly asked if I wanted to upgrade. As the free offer for giveaway of the day is not valid for updates be careful not to click yes. Ran a test and it found a lot of bits. Not really very useful really. It also kicked up a virus under AVG. Not a very good giveaway.

Installed on a 64-bit Vista machine. It picked up all the swf files in a folder I have so it is the Advanced version. It is NOT the latest version being offered. GAOTD's version offer is 4.0. It will ask you if you want to upgrade to 4.1, but says GAOTD's version does not support Updates.

@ #4: The site link for the Standard and Advanced shows the price for the Advance as $39.90, which is what the price is for the version being offered free today. So either someone screwed up and is offering the Standard free and showing price incorrectly as $39.90, or we are getting the Advanced version.

Anybody can straighten this out? Does it grab SWF files? If so, it's the Advanced version.

Again, remember when installing to right-click on the installer and the Activation file (if there is one) and chose "Run as Administrator". Sometimes it is better to untick the "Run" box after you click "Finish" and open the program after all has been activated. Check for registration is usually from the Help menu under "About".

ok I like this program a lot and I got it last time ... I had to reformat and loose it ... so I'm happy it's back again. HOWEVER CHECK THE FILE IT CREATES IN C:\WINDOWS\Allmedia Grabber\uninstall.exe THIS IS NOT THE UNINSTALL APPLICATION .. I double clicked on it and an error occurred but by uninstalling through the start menu it works ... My Prevx 3 is saying this uninstall.exe is a virus and i'm inclined to believe since this file has no effect and + it's weird for the program to create this file in the c:\windows folder ... Can u please check about it ?

@ #14
All the McAfee Site Advisor report indicates is:

"we found links to 5starshare.com, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs."

and the downloads available were tested with the following result:
"13 green downloads

In our tests, we found downloads on this site were free of adware, spyware, and other potentially unwanted programs."

I don't see that there should be any concern for the GOTD download here, unless of course someone goes to the 5Star site and downloads files that may be less trustworthy.

For Vista operators: Let this install "using recommended settings" (after you try to install it the first time, it won't so that window will pop up. Once it's installed you won't be able to open it unless you use administrative privlege....Sooo; when you open it up from your program files..left click on AllMediaGrabber, but then right click on AMG v4.0 and choose "run as admin." An easier way is to add it to your QUICK LAUNCH and you can eliminate the first step(by having to open in program files. Hope this helps and THANKS GAOTD you're still the BEST. note; could really use "Project Dogwaffle 2, I lost mine in the "Great Crash" lol

why the heck are we normally being charged 40 bucks for this?? Check out Resource Hacker (http://delphi.icm.edu.pl/ftp/tools/ResHack.zip) and ResourcesExtract (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/resources_extract.html)
For Heaven's sake, these programs will do exactly the same thing as AllMedia Grabber and more besides. And guess what? They're both freeware to begin with. And that's not all - they're portable to boot. And oh yes, they are much smaller than this - the combined, unzipped size for Resource Hacker & ResourcesExtract is 1.35 MB. Zipped, their combined size is 566 KB. This 4.6MB thing doesn't even come close.
Thanks anyway, GOTD team, but I'm definitely taking a pass on this.

This was offered in 2007 & 2008.

I am not complaining as everytime a bit of software is repeated it acts as a timely reminder to see if I have used it since last being offered. If not then I can uninstall it.

This one fell under that catagorie for me but it did what it was supposed to and, during the time it was installed caused no probs or conflicts, and uninstalled cleanly.

Thanks GAOTD

I just wonder why anyone will ever download such a giveaway. On installation, it prompts you if you want to download version 4.1, this being 4.0, with a note below, that you are not allowed to have any update on this giveawayoftheday edition of the software.(Meaning of course that if you download 4.1, you have to pay for it). I click no download of course. And then, next, is the message to remind you that the limitation of this edition is that it will not download any file more than 330K. Before trying anything, I uninstalled it immediately. The first time I ever done this to any giveawayoftheday.
