People from India, claiming to be from Microsoft scam users by telephone and try and trick them into going to this website which will "Fix your viruses and take care of your PC issues." However, your PC would crash within a few hours or so do to the website being infected with Malware. Do not trust this website at all costs.

Fortunately I did not fall victim, but this site is well-known for use in scams, for years. This kind of thing is only for people who understand the risks completely; definitely not for people who just want to "surf safely" . Make our future also safer: force them to make their download button a warning against scammers before giving it a good rating for the general public, please!

Site provides a good and effective program which does as it says, however there are a multitude of people, and "companies", who incorporate the use of this software in their scams to gain remote access to their victim's computers. It should be noted that only trusted people should be authorized to access the host computer.

This website is NOT a scam, it is a useful service that is being used by OTHER people to scam people. There is a notice on their homepage addressing scammers using their service. (I got one today).

Site is clean. This tool and other is used by the Microsoft Phone Scam from India and Pakistan. The tool is fine and useful, just don't let strangers use it to gain access to your pc.

A scammer cold-called (blocked number) and tried to convince me that the messages in my event viewer were evidence of virus infection and directed me to this website. If this is a legitimate product being used by scammers Ammyy.com could at the very last post a warning on their download page. Until then my rating stands.

Dear users of Ammyy Admin Unfortunately, there are some cases of malicious use of our software noticed. Please be attentive and never grant access to people you don't know personally or whom you don't trust. !!! If you receive a phone call claiming to be from 'Microsoft' or someone claiming to work on their behalf, telling you that you have a virus on your computer or some errors which they will help you to fix via Ammyy Admin, it is definitely a scam. Ammyy Admin itself absolutely safe software but due to its ease of use and free availability it may be used by scammers. If you became a victim of scammers please see the link which may help http://www.ammyy.com/en/admin_mu.html Kind regards Eugene Ammyy Inc. Team

AMMYY is a bona-fide remote support util. They're victims of being abused by cold calling misfits out to steal your hard-earned. Instead of downmarking AMMYY, how about providing them with information so that they can stop the abuse of their product? TeamViewer were only too happy to do so when I gave them all the information they asked for.

Leaving it at Other as sort of a neutral rating: the software (and any other remote control software) can be good, but with the recent cold-calling scams, you should be a bit cautious.

AFAIK this site is perfectly fine. The software itself is legitimate & often used by engineers in large corporations, colleges etc. Unfortunately some (often Indian based) cold call scammers try to convince people to download this for nefarious purposes. http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/sep/22/microsoft-drops-partner-accused-scam?newsfeed=true The posters on this site who are claiming that Ammyy.com are the guilty party are in error. This is why the site itself has a green rating.
