    No experience of programming!
    Need to build a few different bots from auto posting, account creation, emailing reports, saving collected data to csv and then emailing it, clearing down cookies/history, spinning (if possible) and site monitoring .... lol, just a few.

    Any recommodations?
    I have seen/read about uBot but its been slated in BHW forums? Zenno looks good but seems a little unstable and not much by the way of video tutorials in English?

    Zennoposter is amazing, but is sometimes a bit unstable.
    If you want to test it you can have a go of my VPS if you want, but it's quite a complicated program so takes a while to learn.

    Drop me a PM.

    Consider iMacros. Both the iMacros browser version and the Firefox plugin have amazing abilities once you have learned them. And... the Firefox plugin is free, and the iMacros Browser can be found on the torrent sites. That will save you a couple of hundred dollars.

    As for how easy, hard to say. I do not come from a programming background, I do know HTML, and I can view the source of a web-page and understand what does what. I have been using iMacros for years, and once you sit down with it you can actually make pretty complicated stuff. I just built a sign up bot that surfs around a webpage, fills in all data from a random line in a datasource csv. Then fetches the captcha and sends it off to a decaptcha service, then enters that captcha on the site and signs up for an account. It is also a fantastic tool for scraping The iMacros forum is good, lots of help to be found. And what is great with iMacros is the recording function. You just press "record", and you surf the page and do what you want to do. It spits out the macro automatically, then later you just go into that macro and change it.

    I do not know uBot or Zenno too well. I believe they have more features (like "if" statements) and lots of pre-built routines. They are both very costly though. And people complain about the stability of Zenno, and their forum is mainly in Russian.

    Guess what I am trying to say is; since I do not know how savvy you are, I do not know if iMacros is the right tool for you. But then I do not know if uBot would be either. I do believe that if you sit around with iMacros for a week, watch all the vids, check out all the demo macros out there and play around with them, you could in theory be able to build all those things that you mention by the end of that week.

    I've been using ZP for about 3-years, and I haven't come across a project that it isn't able to accomplish.

    It's also paid for itself x 100's times over.

    Depends who you got to build the bot I say.......

    In my opinion the latest Ubot (5.5.1) is good enough for most people. V5.5.2 is just about to come out - get the dev version and you have a lot of control over it. I have used both Ubot and Zenno and in my opinion, now its back on track, Ubot kicks Zennos ass.

    Just been reading the now closed ubot bst (and your comments). Would you still recommend the latest ubot?

    I think you should go for one that is completed and has easy features.
    You should get a bot that meets your need and mostly hands free.

    Zenno would be better than ubot, it has many templates already developed to get things off the ground.

    I mean you get completed software that does all that you are looking for. When I was Googling around for Automated software at the beginning of this year, I found few of them that do what you are looking for. However i didn't buy them.
    You can find one that best suites your need by doing a Google search. :)

    Hey there,

    I've sent you a PM so we can talk more if you'd like, but I wanted to add that all this is very possible in UBot. Thanks for your inquiry!

    (Oh and sorry it sent you the same message three times, something weird happened when I hit send and I ended up at a gray "connection reset" page from BHW)
