    "Good program, NOT worth all the JUNK it comes with it."

    December 28, 2012  |   By spthomas01

    Pros

    Freecorder is a good program for free. The latest version doesn't use a toolbar, just a button on the menu bar, and it works well.

    Cons

    This will install MANY different pieces of junk! It will install Two different toolbars, with hooks into all your Chrome, Firefox, and IE Browsers. AND it will install software that will pop up a FREEWARE generated ad box every time you run any query in the browser that it thinks it related (query CD, and you'll get a FreeWare box of CD related ADs). It takes FOREVER to get rid of all this crap.

    Summary

    1. GREAT program
    2. HORRIBLE experience. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!
    3. This company, Applian, makes great software. So don't be cheap, and BUY one of their products like Replay Music, WM Recorder, etc. Pay a bit, but no ads. And you can download trials from CNET.
