    "Didn't work or have codec needed for my problem"

    January 26, 2010  |   By DangerousDale


    Simplistic installation


    Didn't work, and has spyware that it wants to install.


    During installation there are checkboxes that want you to install software - browser helpers etc. I unchecked these, ran the program and then tried media player with the avi file I was trying to view and it didn't work, so I uninstalled the program.

    You had trouble with one file so you decided to launch a childish attack???

    It does not contain spyware!
    Look at the top left side of the product page where it says "Tested spyware free" by!
    How dare you slander my product, you probably don't even know what spyware is.
    Have you ever considered that the "single" file you're having trouble with is a fake file of a movie that hasn't even been released?
    Have you considered that the "single" file you're having trouble with has not been encoded properly?
