    "Download security scan - a bust?"

    March 23, 2014   |   By markjspinnover

    Version: Active@ ISO Burner 2.5

    Pros

    don't know.. reading the reviews and not eager to download.

    Cons

    other reviews tell it all

    Summary

    If this program has downloads, that speaks volumes against the 'security scan' that occurs whenever a file is downloaded. \
    Seems like it just gives a warm fuzzy feeling without actually doing anything.

    "Could be a good product- but not from CNET"

    February 17, 2014   |   By fauna99

    Version: Active@ ISO Burner 2.5

    Pros

    Seemed to work but uninstalled it because of concurrent browser changes from CNET.

    Cons

    It came through CNET and included very close to malware.

    Summary

    Don't trust downloads from CNET anymore- too many associated problems. Too bad- they used to be good.

    "Worked beautifully"

    February 14, 2014   |   By dd64sg

    Version: Active@ ISO Burner 2.5

    Pros

    Smooth Operation

    Cons

    There wasn't any as I used the direct download link instead of the cnet crap installer.

    Summary

    Recently my motherboard died and I had to upgrade it. After upgrading vista refused to activate, so I downloaded a bunch of linux distros to switch that computer to linux. I needed to burn those ISOs to DVD as I usually don't use DVDs but here it was necessary to boot with those DVDs so I downloaded this software It burned about 10 DVDs containing different distro isos without a problem. And all those DVDS work perfectly.

    "Works but beware of bundled software"

    December 16, 2013   |   By Isabella278

    Version: Active@ ISO Burner 2.5

    Pros

    It works for smaller ISO files

    Cons

    Does not work on larger ISO files - stops half way reporting an error writing.

    Summary

    I was able to use it for smaller ISO files only, e.g., files that install one program each. Trying to use it for larger programs/suites resulted in errors every time.

    However, this download gave me more headaches than help. As I downloaded some programs from CNET in the past without any problems, I just chose the "complete" or "express" installation - big mistake. I got three unwanted items that I had no idea I was downloading: (1) Some no brand free backup software (I pay for my backup with a reputable site - I don't just backup my files to some no-name site). I was able to uninstall it pretty easily. (2) I got a Connect toolbar in Chrome, IE and Mozilla, with extensions in all three programs, and my home site and search engine were changed to Connect. I had to reset all three to their original settings to remove the extensions and redo my home sites/search engine preferences. (3) I got ScorpionSaver malware - adware-adpeak program. This software gives you large pop ups with ads from competitors every time you are on some shopping site. This program I am still fighting with - and it has been over a month. I uninstalled ISO burner and all other programs, scanned my PC with McAfee, and McAfee found, quarantined and removed the program. However, since then, nearly daily, I have pop ups from McAfee that they stopped a potentially unwanted malware running, and then I scan and again quarantine and delete the adware program. The next day, it pops up again.

    If you want to download anything from CNET - I will not be doing so in the forthcoming future - please be aware that they are bundling some of their "partner software" programs into the downloads, so NEVER click on either express or complete installation, but go to custom installation and uncheck anything else they are suggesting for you. Since CNET calls these programs "partner software" (per their response to my on Facebook - no other way to contact them), they are likely making money off everyone downloading these programs, and giving us headaches only.

    I hope that CNET will clean up their act and stop that trashy "partner software" that is nothing but trouble.

    "DO NOT download"

    December 06, 2013   |   By adeline_csl

    Version: Active@ ISO Burner 2.5

    Pros

    NO PROS. Tricks you into downloading things that you do not want. It downloads even after you said NO.

    Cons

    1. The recommended install option included useless search bar and other browser plugins.
    2. When you choose the custom install, it still downloads plugins and change your browser settings WITHOUT your consent.
    3. Also, it includes about 5 different apps that will ACCESS and STEAL your information.

    Summary

    If you are NOT tech-savvy at all, DO NOT download. Even if you are, use another software, it's not worth your time.

    Updated on Dec 6, 2013

    When you are going through the installation process, select DECLINE on those apps. Please be aware that the search bar browser plugins are unavoidable - it installs whether you decline or accept.

    "Installs browser extensions without approval."

    December 06, 2013   |   By JPHiggs

    Version: Active@ ISO Burner 2.5

    Pros

    didn't give it a chance to run, my browser immediately redirected and installed a bunch of plugins upon installing Active@ ISO Burner.

    Cons

    Automatically installs horrible browser plugins, even when the option to not install anything else is selected. Hijacks and runs unwanted items and advertisements.

    Summary

    don't download it unless you want your browser hijacked and filled with ads.
