"Rubbish - the worst "freeware", Installs malware 4.0"

October 11, 2014  |  By pdperth

2014-10-11 20:30:33  |  By pdperth

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 3.4

Pros

Installs rubbish even if you select otherwise at setup

Cons

Rubbish program if setup does not follow instructions

Summary

Immoral, unethical software - DO NOT INSTALL!

"Installs malware even if you opt out."

August 02, 2014  |  By P.F.

2014-08-02 08:21:17  |  By P.F.

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 3.4

Pros

Older versions got good reviews.

Cons

Current version will install a virus which I believe bypasses CNET's filters by installing as an "update" from the publisher.

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!! Find some other program to record your audio files.

"Installs frustrating adware, doesn't work well"

February 04, 2014  |  By Rivercat0338

2014-02-04 09:56:55  |  By Rivercat0338

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 3.4

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Despite bypassing all the adware prompts during the installation, Aktiv installed something called lookinglink, which I'm still fighting to get rid of. The program itself doesn't work all that well--audio recordings come out faint and noisy.

Summary

Uninstalled and went with Freecorder instead.

Updated on Feb 4, 2014

And now Aktiv's own uninstaller won't remove the program. Stay far away from this software.

"Unable to install without adware"

July 15, 2013  |  By tragicallygeeky

2013-07-15 14:09:58  |  By tragicallygeeky

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 3.2

Pros

It gets good reviews elsewhere? I'm guessing from before they added the forced toolbar ads.

Cons

Claims to not include spyware or adware, however when began installation it requires you to install CouponDropDown plugin AND reset your default search and homepage. Yep, that's a dealbreaker right there. They promise to save for easy reverting to your previous settings, but I'll just find another option for recording audio, thanks.

"mandatory adware"

May 11, 2013  |  By OrigKan

2013-05-11 21:42:52  |  By OrigKan

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 3.2

Pros

I don't know. I wasn't able to download it without spyware so I aborted installation.

Cons

Upon installation, I had to check advanced options as I usually do with installations to opt out of adware. There was a toolbar which I declined to ad and proceeded thinking everything was good from that point on. Then I get to their terms of service which I have to "read" and then click proceed. But at that point, it states that clicking "accept" means you will allow them to install a adware plug-in that will collect personal data and track your keystrokes on the web. There is no way to opt out of this adware plug-in. The only option if you don't want it is to abort installation, which is what I did.

Summary

If you're ok with some company watching your every move on the internet and collecting all your personal data and watching what you type and where you click on webpages, then based on the other reviews, I assume this is probably a decent program. But if you don't want your privacy invaded, you're out of luck.

"Do not install"

March 24, 2013  |  By koolkanga

2013-03-24 00:25:00  |  By koolkanga

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 3.0

Pros

Absolutely none

Cons

Tries to install malware
Cannot opt out

Summary

Firstly, if you do not accept custom install, it will install various software you may not want installed on your PC.

The installation is painfully slow, up to 10 minutes to download a few mbytes. Then you get a message, "do you wish to upgrade to the later version"?

If you don't and select no, the installation bombs out. OK, I decided to select "yes", to install the updated version. I selected "custom" install, as I do not wish to install the various malware and toolbar.

However, if you do this, the installation won't let you proceed and the installation exits. If you read the fine print and you install the malware, you are giving away your rights to personal information access by the software.

"Ready to back-up your Cassettes and LPs? This'll do it."

June 14, 2012  |  By don_santino_corleone

2012-06-14 09:08:08  |  By don_santino_corleone

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 2.7

Pros

Simple, fast and easy to use!

Cons

None that I've found

Summary

This app couldn't be any easier to use if they tried. Not only that, it's really fast, and it converts files in less time than it takes to locate the original file on my PC. I couldn't be happier with it.

"Pain to get rid of"

March 20, 2012  |  By rosiejim

2012-03-20 06:53:07  |  By rosiejim

 |  Version: Aktiv MP3 Recorder 2.7

Pros

This does work as my 60+ cassettes conversion proves .
Very easy to understand .

Cons

I had a problem on re-installing Aktiv MP3 Recorder , getting a toolbar that I did not want . What a job to get rid of , had to download Revo Uninstaller which did the trick . Absolutely positive I followed the instructions to the letter when downloading Aktiv MP3 Recorder . Searched for an alternative and settled for MP3 DirectCut v2.16 ; this is German software and is excellent for what I want . After 9 cassettes my verdict is 5 stars : 10 to do and I am finished . Will try and resist picking up any more cassettes on the cheap .

Summary

This is what makes me annoyed , having to jump through hoops just to get rid of something you do not want .
It is entirely up to the individual what to download , so the best of luck .
As for me this was an unnecessary waste of time .

On my new comp., the "input box" comes out empty, which makes the recorder unusable. Sent question to the publisher, but got no reply.
