Plagiarism Detector installs 32 MB of data locally and inserts a button in Microsoft Word for starting the test on the text opened. This system reached second place in the 2008 test with a version that they sent to us on a CD. However, a number of correspondents noted that the download version attempted to install a trojan virus, so we removed it from our test.  We find it irritating that they are advertising with our school logo, although we have asked them to remove this. The system crashed numerous times, and overwrites the result report each time it gets called. Word became more and more instable, also crashing on occasion. The company was contacted and updated the system, now it hung instead of crashing. The reports could not be see inside the system, but had to be selected and viewed from the explorer. Since the system did not reach even 50% of the effectiveness point overall, it has been ranked useless.
