"Be careful, or your browser gets hijacked!"
It's a fine PDF reader, light and fast. Regretfully, the unusually-worded setup makes it easy to install the dreaded Ask.Com browser-hijacker.
During setup, you're given the choice to install the Ask.Com Toolbar. If you decline, then you proceed by clicking "I Accept" (which seems like the natural choice), the Ask.Com software is installed despite your previous choices.
Here's what the Ask.Com software does:
_ Sets your homepage to a huge "ASK!" page.
_ LOCKS your Internet settings so you can't change it back
_ HIDES itself from "Add/Remove Programs", and in your file system, so it's nearly impossible for the average user to remove.
I'm quite disappointed that the makers of such a fine PDF reader felt it necessary to include such an undesireable, intrusive, stealthed add-on with their product, and to present the setup choice in such an unusual, unintuitive way.
Because of this, I have no choice but to give the package 1 star. Be careful!!
