Editors' Review

+

This CD and DVD burner works as advertised, but the bundled toolbar it installs reduces its appeal. Burn4Free CD & DVD lets you burn audio discs or write data to CDs and DVDs by dropping audio or data files into the main window.

The button-heavy main window has a somewhat awkward look, but it's easy enough to understand. If you find yourself overwhelmed by the multitude of controls, you can switch to the more streamlined Easy mode. Be aware that the app attempts to install the NavExcel toolbar, which changes the way IE behaves when you mistype a URL or enter one of NavExcel's recognized keywords into the address bar.

Budget-minded users may not care, but even they have plenty of other cheap and free options. We'd prefer to burn discs with our jukebox of choice or pay for a more full-featured, less invasive application.

"doesn't work. seems to be a malware"

December 27, 2014  |  By meon100

 |  Version: Burn4Free DVD Burning 7.9

Pros

none. except it's easy to install

Cons

even with custom installation it opens a lot of new browser windows/tabs while you are trying to select files to be burn.
I think it should be removed from download.cnet.com as a spyware or unreliable product.

"Loaded with Malware (and yes I read the installer)"

December 09, 2013  |  By JR-the-dude

 |  Version: Burn4Free DVD Burning 6.8

Pros

none... well I guess it is cleverly written malware. It is good at bypassing virus scans and fooling people into installing it.

Cons

Seem to be a scam. It flooded my browser with windows and pop-ups. tried to get me to add other programs. Fortunately, I stopped it from making additional changes. It tried to get into my facebook and gmail accounts.

Summary

Just bad. Maybe it was a legit program at some point, but it was not when I downloaded it. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

"Superior burning program"

December 08, 2013  |  By Old-Navy

Cons

No noted at this time and I've been using it for around 5 years now!

Summary

If you want or need a burning program, this is the premier program to get.

"So much bloatware!"

November 10, 2013  |  By DanDeJ

 |  Version: Burn4Free DVD Burning 6.7

Pros

Nothing...

Cons

I didn't even have a chance to use this program before I was bombarded with spam and advertisements. I immediately uninstalled, then spent the next five minutes trying to figure out and uninstall all the junk that it had bundled with it.

Summary

Absolute crap! Do not download!

"UTTER CR@P!! USELESS "OFFERS" and ADWARE"

November 06, 2013  |  By r34turbo

 |  Version: Burn4Free DVD Burning 6.7

Pros

NONE!! This is a useless program

Cons

Although cnet warned of a "bundled toolbar", I decided to install it thinking I could just opt out of this. Well it has something like 20 or so additional bundled "offers" and toolbars. It has ALOT of sneaky situations where it will ask YES/NO to install some adware....and when you click NO, the confirmation will actually install it.

Even after getting through the installation....guess what clicking "DVD Copy" button does?.... It launches a website to more ads.

Summary

DO NOT INSTALL THIS..

"PC Poison 4 free - You are warned..."

October 13, 2013  |  By Darren Dheilly

 |  Version: Burn4Free DVD Burning 6.2

Pros

The worst download I ever got : It slides a lot of unwanted stuff so good. Do you like working with "REGEDIT" ? And erasing all traces of crap ? If so download it - it is "Maleware 4 free".

Cons

Oh Man, where do I begin ? I decided to try it being careful, or so I thought, as I opted out of the Babylon search crap - It gave it to me anyway. The install screen had some Blue Flame on it and so difficult to see & it was going to give me "IAVAS" ? (what the heck is that). So once I downloaded it I thought I was safe. I was not, it only burns Bad ISO and very terrible media - no Video. It gave me a bunch extra junk I could not believe it ; It gave me ; Bundled software.com, with "Filefrog", "Bit Guarder", and one big
"Social downloader" (spyware), IAVAS (?) and of course it gave me
the "Babylon" tool bar. I opted out of. All files hidden deep in my registry files... The app gave me the Burn 4 Freek. So hard to Erase I had to use File Assassin - it dd not work - Unlocker did...

Summary

Well I can continue to Vent, for I have to go back and work with
my "Regedit" for hours. cleaning all the crap the app gave me. I seen so many listed with "Hitman pro". Life is too short. If Seth does not give a positive review, be overly cautious... Or read the reviews users write. I know, I know - I should practice what I preach. Oh well, I learned a time consuming lesson.
