See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

Installed and activated with no problem... and NO Bing toolbar was installed! Just wondering why so many people are claiming to have been installed with the toolbar !??!

did NOT install a toolbar and yes Chris I checked with add/remove programs, Uninstaller pro, Iobit uninstaller, cCleaner. If people got the Binbar they probably tried the trial first or something like that.

Some say Bing is installed, some say it isn't. Seems to be no consensus. I'm not messing around with something that may or may not arbitrary install what I consider spamware.

@24 (and others):
I can confirm that it did *NOT* install Bing on my system (XP SP3). I not only used an installation monitoring program but verified visually, in the Program Files folder AND my "Add/Remove" list, and it was not, I repeat, NOT, installed for me... Verified!
One noteworthy mention is that this installed two fonts in my font folder, which most programs *typically* don't...
"Digit.ttf" and "LEDBDREV.ttf" ("LED Board Reversed")
But that was just my experience... Not saying it *wasn't* installed for some people, just not mine, that's all...
As the great Giovanni says, my 2 cents. LOL

@3 Charles:
On mine it is separate from the System clock. The icon for it resides in the System Tray.

@5 XP-Man:
On my installation I had a box to disable the update check. When the program first opened I blocked it from accessing the Internet, then went into the options and disabled the update check (click the gear-looking icon that says "Tools" when you hover your mouse over it and choose "Preferences".)

All of which #9 Jerry already pretty much mentioned I now see. LOL

Just a little survey here: On those who got the Bing installed as well, what OS are you running? XP, Vista, 7, 8? Just curious...

Like Tom, I did not find any bing toolbar either. There is nothing wrong with this software except the alarm should be louder.

Hello,
The license text is erroneous. I am the developer. There is no Bing toolbar bundled with the program. The license text was copied and pasted from an old version of the free version of Cool Timer which was at one point bundled with Bing toolbar, stupid mistake. This is the full unrestricted, paid version. Nothing is bundled with it, unless GOTD did in their installer. The update issued last night was released after I submitted the installer to GOTD and just fixes some bugs reported by users.

I'm not sure where the toolbar bundling issues came in but I had no problems with today's GAOTD installation. However, the GUI is *awful*: Harmony Hollow this software may've come from but does it really need to look like the handiwork of pixellated Pixies?

Thanks GAOTD, but no thanks: what with its viral color scheme and $15 sticker price, I'm more than happy with the Windows tray clock and the ever-dependable and delightfully discreet freeware countdown (elapsed time) clock Free Time from Zero Central, an outfit which I think vanished from sight at least 10 years ago but you may still find an archival trace of it and the Windows 98 / Win XP and upwards Free Time somewhere, somehow, on the Net.

Post #26. I have Win 7, 64 bit also, and as per my three posts #6, 19 and 28, I had no problem what-so-ever in installing and running the program. By the way, did it install the Bing Toolbar on your computer like it did on most other computers? And if so, what is your default browser?

Post #24, "@6, 7, 9, 16, 19 – I suggest that everyone who thinks Bing Toolbar was not installed to check your Control Panel and Add/Remove Programs after installation."
I think most of us did, at least I did for sure. It is not there or anywhere. (The Bing Toolbar has never been installed on my computer) Post #16 even ran a search and found no instance of it. I also have and use WinPatrol Plus on my computer, it always advises if a new toolbar is being installed in any browser and if I approve, it didn't ask as it this program never tried to install it.
What browser program(s) uses the Bing Toolbar? Opera is my default browser, not IE, Chrome or FireFox? Maybe this is why it wasn't installed on my computer.

Like the previous user/s above, I really cant find the bing toolbar anywhere in my computer, including add/remove, and internet explorer add-on.

Hrm... I normally don't have any problems with GotD programs, but this one has given me one. I downloaded and installed it, tried to click on it to run- nothing happens. Ok, so I tried a few more times- still nothing- restarted my computer and still nothing. Interesting indeed. So, I am not sure if perhaps there is something up with using on Windows 7 64 or not but it refuses to run on my computer. If anyone has had this problem and knows how to fix it- could you let me know before the day is up if it isn't too much trouble. I was quite interested in this program because it would help in work productivity.
Take care and I hope ya all have a good day.

Monitored in win7 32 VBox VM... No add-ons -- just clean install -- while update downloads newer setup file to Temp folder & runs it. Tried 1st in std. XP Mode VM, finding out that Cool Timer Deluxe requires .NET 4, not mentioned anywhere that I saw [though of course could have missed it].

$15 for a timer? Is it true?
Maybe is it not $1.50?
And with Bing Toolbar?
So, it is not free, it is not a giveaway!
No thanks.

"Death by decimal point" they call it, in some circles.

Regarding my post #7. For me it does not try to install, or actually install the Bing Toolbar. I did re-read the iiscense agreement completely and it does say it will install the Bing Toolbar. So I guess the question is, why is it installed on some systems, and not on others like mine or post #6's? Did they change the download?

To #4. After you install the program, go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADD / REMOVE PROGRAMS, and uninstall the Bing toolbar. Hope this helps.

Installed in Windows Vista without a problems. It updated and installed. There was no need to do anything to activate the software. I set timers to remind me each morning to turn off the computer and get in the shower. On occasion, I get busy and forget to keep track of time. I know this will work well for me. I think I had an earlier version, but lost it with I upgraded my computer.

If you read the license agreement it clearly states "NOTE: By installing this application, you agree to the installation of the Bing Toolbar or Bing Bar."
While Bing Toolbar is easy enough to uninstall, I simply do not like the idea of being forced to install it.

Skip.

I have freeware timer, freeware stopwatch and freeware alarm clock.

I do not need tricky underhanded malware:
· Offers to change the homepage for web browsers installed in the system
· Offers to change the default search engine for web browsers installed in the system
· Offers to download or install software or components (such as browser tool bars) that the program does not require to fully function

@2 Big Teapot - as XP-Man and janet have said, it seems that the update can be installed without causing problems with the license.
@3 Charles Mintoff - this seems to be completely separate from the task bar clock.
@4 Joe - as with janet, this did not install the Bing Toolbar for me (I checked Firefox, Opera and restarted IE just to be sure).
@5 XP-Man - Tools/Preferences.../Automatically check for update when program starts - uncheck the box.
As to whether or not it's worth having... well, I'll have a bit of a play with it later.

I've used the free version of Cool Timer for a long time and it's great so I thought a free upgrade to deluxe would be nice. The only issue was that they hid the Bing Toolbar installation in really shady fashion. There was literally no check-box or mention of it in setup at all, other than deep in the license file, and then just briefly, with no way to decline it. I still went through with the installation and just uninstalled the Bing Toolbar afterwards. Not too much of a pain. Upon booting the software, an upgrade was available. Happy overall. Shocked at the shadiness of the Bing Toolbar being hidden.

As mentioned in post 6 "there were no offers for other installations. Just the usual choose install location, Start list location, and do you want desktop icon or on launchbar. According to my install programs, nothing else was installed." I had exactly the same results.
It took me last than 5 minutes to download the program, install it, and then upgrade to V1.0.7. No delays or problems whatever. I will now evaluate it.

Since v1.0.7 was all bug fixes, I figured it highly unlikely that they woud not give it to us with today's offer. This turned out to be correct! Just follow the update offer--you get a registered v1.0.7.

Since Ashraf usually downloads the regular program in order to have time to submit his review early, ie not from the GAOTD link, this may explain his bloatware. I used the GAOTD link. I always to Adv install to be able to put my apps not on C:, and there were no offers for other installations. Just the usual choose install location, Start list location, and do you want desktop icon or on launchbar. According to my install programs, nothing else was installed.

I also might mention that I have been using their Standard as a simple timer for ages because of its great simplicity.

Installed without any fuss, one opening a rather gaudy interface once I'd clicked I didn't want an update. Everytime I opened the program I had to cancel the update and quite frankly it became very irritating. In the hope of getting rid of it I accepted an update, after downloading it said it was installing, then I reran it and asked me if I wanted to update!!!!!
It looks like a very versatile program and appears to have the ability to run a program at set times, but quite frankly the gaudy interface and the incredibly irritating request that I update was too much to bear and I uninstalled it.

If you can hack its irritating behaviour and its interface it is probably a good program to have on your machine, but it's not for me.

Installed fine on XPSP3
Fairly intuitive to navigate
Nice customisable skins
Interface is not resizable :(

When it started it indicates an update to v1.0.7 is available, maybe that fixes the bug Ashraf mentions, we won't know tho'.
