Editors' Review

BullZip PDF Printer Standard adds a virtual printer to your Windows installation and uses it to generate PDF documents from any Windows app that supports printing. When compared to the competition, this free version of the software has more features, although some require a premium purchase in order to be fully usable.

Pros

Deep Windows integration: BullZip PDF Printer Standard installs a printer driver on your PC, which makes it available in every application that has the ability to print. This means that you can now have a single unified way of generating PDF documents, regardless of the app you happen to use.

Advanced PDF options: From the software's settings screen you can change the level of detail on the generated PDFs, add author details and watermarks, encrypt the printed files, and even append other PDF documents to them.

Macros in names: One unique feature of the software is the ability to customize the names of the generated PDF documents by inserting built-in macros. In our tests we were able to set the naming style to use the document's name followed by the author.

Cons

Crippled functionality: Some options, such as digital certificates and high resolution watermarks, are not available in the free version of the software. You can still use the aforementioned features, but the end PDF will show that it is created with demo software.

Bottom Line

If you find yourself needing to create PDF documents from a dozen different programs on a regular basis, you should consider getting BullZip PDF Printer Standard. Since it functions like an ordinary printer, there is very little to learn, so you can get to work straightaway.

"NEVER INSTALL, installs malware!"

December 13, 2014  |  By dew05

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer Standard 10.10.0.2307

Pros

What prons? I can't get rid of the malware

Cons

Trojans. Lots of them. Plus they want money to grant you access to their support forum where you can eventually find out how to get rid of this crap.

Summary

In a word, DON'T!

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer 9.10.0.1629

None - avoid this software

"Works Perfect, No Malware"

October 11, 2013  |  By jaredf89

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer 9.10.0.1629

Pros

Easy to use and setup. Works as expected.

Cons

None so far

Summary

This program will only install unwanted programs if you allow it to. When you are going through the installation process, you must decline all of the program offerings and make sure to uncheck the boxes of the add ons. If you do that, you will have only BullZip installed.

"DON'T TAKE THIS. IT INSTALLS MANY OTHER SOFTWARE."

October 10, 2013  |  By Jacko_W

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer 9.10.0.1629

Pros

I didn't even try it once I found out that it installed many other programs to my system without telling me. I wanted to get rid of it asap.

Cons

It configures add-ons to your browsers, a tool that claims to be your backup tool etc. This could be seen as malware.

Summary

There are lots of other, well-behaving tools - use them.

"Do NOT Install - Trust Me"

September 11, 2013  |  By MichaelAllen

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer 9.10.0.1629

Pros

Absolutely none.

Cons

This software used to be ok but is now pure crap. Not only are there many reports of malware BUT installing this on one of my systems caused it to be unable to print to ANY PRINTERS and pretty much forced me to completely rebuild the Windows from scratch.

Summary

Save yourself time and frustration and look elsewhere for PDF printing.

CNET should remove this POS software from there site ASAP or they will lose all credibility among users who download it.

"Seems to be a spyware agent, though it does print PDFs"

July 10, 2013  |  By BullZipped

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer 9.6.0.1582

Pros

I was able to print PDFs through the printer driver interface.

Cons

Major anti-spyware software (Avira, Avast, AVG, Anti-Malwarebytes, Housecall, CNET download) reported my system clean, but projecthoneypot.org kept reporting my IP address as sending out spam. Comodo Firewall Scan was unsure about the Bullzip .dll, so I uninstalled Bullzip and the spam stopped and I was no longer reported on projecthoneypot.org, so my best estimate is that Bullzip or their friends are sending out spam and using my computer as their agent to generate income.

 |  Version: BullZip PDF Printer 9.6.0.1582

Pros

None. MAJOR MALWARE ALERT!!!!!!

Cons

CNET, PLEASE REMOVE THIS MALWARE. It installs a bunch of trash and overwrites default settings. I removed this software and restored my PC back to a date prior to the download but my no matter what I do, my default search engine is now Bing (does anyone really use this?), I keep getting popup videos when I open new tabs, and I still can't get away from this page loading every time I open a browser: http://start.sweetpacks.com/?src=10&st=12&crg=3.5000006.10045&barid={84C6FCD3-C3E7-11E2-9B8B-00219B236612}

Summary

THIS IS MALAWARE -- AVOID!
