    "Do Not Download"

    July 15, 2014   |   By dking2063us

    Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

    Pros

    Free to download, but not worth it

    Cons

    First it will ask you at every click if you want to download tons of junk and programs. Avoid all of them. Second once you download Acala it will sneak other ads and Malware onto your computer.

    Summary

    This was uploaded 2 years ago and it is now junk and Do Not Waste Your Time

    "Installs malware (browser Hijacker Snap.do)"

    March 28, 2014   |   By encephalo

    Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

    Pros

    I got to learn a lot about how to remove yet another virus/malware/Hijacker. Thanks again CNET, you have made me a more advanced computer tech over the years. I trust torrents more these days and that's crazy.

    Cons

    Shame on CNET for having this. Once my trusted download site I find more and more that malware is included. And not just simple Bloat like Bing and other toolbars, but serious malware that is very hard to remove.

    Summary

    Downloaded and installed despite prior posters warnings of malware.

    I carefully selected not to install the obviously-malware Toolbar...it did anyway of course.

    The Snap.do malware prevents accessing Explorer settings so it can't be disabled and you can't reset your home page. It restarts itself if you try to kill the process in Task Manager. If you kill the process and delete fast enough you can delete it but it installs an update checker to reinstall it.

    I finally used safe mode and disabled the toolbar. I tracked down and deleted the installed Hijacker (LTD directory in Program Files). I tracked down the reinstaller (under the Hidden directory AppData) and deleted it. I think, after a couple of hours, I have finally gotten rid of the malware. I will be cleaning my registry next.

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL unless you are an advanced user and can get rid of the malware.

    "Full of adware and didn't rip anything"

    February 21, 2014   |   By Lily221

    Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

    Pros

    Nothing. Did not work for me.

    Cons

    Installs lots of adware and programs without permission and is hard to get rid of. Does not rip DVDs.

    Summary

    I am still trying figure out how to get rid of the adwares as it is not possible to do so from add/remove programs. I am still getting pop-up ads. Can't believe cnet is allowing this program to be downloaded and have such a good rating.

    "loaded with Trojan horses and spyware"

    February 17, 2014   |   By JorgeHernandez23581

    Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

    Pros

    Never got around to opening the program since my anti-virus blocked it instantly.

    Cons

    Hijacked my browsers and installed without permission. It has difficult to get our of computer.

    Summary

    How does download.com allow this kind of program that infects computers in a big way?? unbelievable!!!

    "Didn't work for me as I wanted it to."

    February 06, 2014   |   By MabelSRV

    Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

    Pros

    Looks great on paper.

    Cons

    Won't rip DVDs that have copyright protection. Pay close attention when installing or you will get lots of bloatware & have your browser hijacked.

    Summary

    I downloaded this program solely to rip my DVDs & was disappointed. Both discs I inserted gave an error message about them being copyright protected & I wasn't able to rip them. Isn't that the point of this type of software...to create a digital copy for your computer? I wasn't able to use it as I wanted to and I haven't tried any of the other features yet (which is why I gave it an OK rating-maybe the other feature are good). :(

    "Installs other software including conduit"

    February 01, 2014   |   By adair19

    Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

    Pros

    none that stand out

    Cons

    will attempt to install a few other programs that seem to hijack your browser(s)

    Summary

    If you do download it make sure you are careful what you click during the installation.
