Product ranking:#10 in E-book Software
none, downloads trovi malware "virus"
this program dowloads with trovi malware virus that takes over all your web browsers for search.
i was able to check online on how to remove trovi and i removed cbr reader too.
None at all!!!
It contains crapware, changes your default search engine in ALL your browsers, emty ALL your browser cache and who knows what?!
Its not free at all. You pay with your private data.
NOTHING POSITIVE TO SAY ABOUT IT!
(sorry about my capital letters - but I just had to emphasize and yell)
I have always trusted CNET since mid 90s - almost 20 years. And gaining trust is what websites is all about. Especially a download site. That trust I had to CNET has just vanished in a few seconds. I am really embarrassed on CNETs behalf.
None at all !
Download other junk along with it.
Had to spend time uninstalling all the crap. Not coming back to this site again, that's for sure.
no pros at all!!!
Will not load CBR or CBZ!!!
size of converted file is not much larger tha the original
does not work with all cbr files
When receiving this message "An error occured during conversion:
Invalid Rar Header: 3" you cannot do anything
It doesn't outright demolish your PC, but read Cons.
Contains adware that took a while to remove. Avoid!!!!!!
There are better readers anyway, and you can always rename the files *.rar and use Winrar to convert them to individual pictures.
Works ok features are kind of basic and does not lend well to reading a comicbook. But it functions
I installed this and it also installed Ad/Malware. It was replacing ads on Facebook. At one point it had 10 attempts to replace/add an ad. It also rendered clicking seem more in facebook non functional until I uninstalled the ad/malware program and the new tab program. I did a custom install and it there was no option to not install the ad/malware which hindered internet browser functions.
Do not install this without proper testing. Download.cnet.com should pull this and all similar programs with secret "ninja installs" of ad ware especially ones that disrupt performance of browser or internet useage. If the program is legit it should have ads displayed when using the program and not over ride or add to internet ads. This kind of ad/malware needs to be outlawed.
I left CBR in stalled but watching to be sure the malware installs are not returning. If you do install this be sure to bring up your add/remove program window and check for unwanted installs to remove them.
Very simple and easy to use.
Provides a clear and high res image of you comics.
No customization options.
Very frustration navigating you comics.
Double-clicking your .cbr only opens CBR Reader, not the actual comic.
A very simple tool too read your comics, but a serious lack of customization makes it a frustrating experience reading.
I really do not recommend CBR Reader, I will uninstall it right away and try to find another better tool.
I don't know, was a little skeptical once I had it downloaded.
It somehow redirected my browsers to a social addon(plugin) and tried to automatically install it. It failed to install on Firefox because it always gives you a small delay before really installing it and I quickly cancelled it. With Chrome it instantly installed it. I would stay away from this CBR Reader as much as possible. Luckily I found some safe alternatives.
Works fine, easy to use
Tries to piggyback other crapware (Funmoods) along with the software.
Why oh why do developers and computer manufacturers feel the need to include crapware, bloatware, and other annoyances along with the desired product? If I wanted Funmoods installed on my machine, I would search it out and install it myself separately... I really do not appreciate CNET and others trying to sneak this garbage under the radar on me. For that reason I'm giving this product three stars.
Otherwise it installs easily enough, works fine, and is easy to use.

I think that it's the CNET installer specifically that bundles the junkware. I had the same problem - Wajam social search and Coupon Advisor plugins - and they managed to blow up McAfee. So I nuked 'em (spent some time cleaning my machine) and grabbed a clean installer from the CBRReader website. Much happier.
