Editors' Review

+

ExtractNow could use a bit of sprucing up. The dead-simple and cheetah-quick installation brings you to an expanse of white that sits on top of four buttons. That's it. It's not an interface that sells the feature set, but it's the feature set that users will be most interested in.

The program should appeal to users who handle a high volume of archives, because all it does is extract archive contents. The four buttons--Settings, History, Clear, and Extract--lay out the basics. Click Settings and a window pops up to entice you with options. From the boilerplate specials like Always on Top or Start with Windows to more detailed customizations such as delineating a default extraction directory, setting file extensions to ignore, and adjusting post-extraction behavior, ExtractNow gives users as much flexibility as possible when it comes to batch archive extractions. You can, for instance, set it to delete archives after their files have been extracted.

It is not an archiver, though, and won't be able to replace your favorite archiver. But if you're more about receiving than giving when it comes to ZIPs, RARs, and TARs, ExtractNow can save you a massive amount of time.

"absolute crapware"

May 29, 2012  |  By independent_review

 |  Version: ExtractNow 4.6.7.1

Pros

none - didn't extract anything

Cons

Despite deselecting the installation of INCREDIBAR during the installation it did. After the installation it did not extract an Acefile. It's just like the User above said: should be removed from CNET immediately

"Changed Search Page and Closed Windows After Install"

May 24, 2012  |  By parquedematthew

 |  Version: ExtractNow 4.6.7.1

Pros

software didn't even work so none

Cons

I had Google Chrome running while installing this. As soon as I clicked finish, it killed Chrome (leaving child processes running) and then proceeded to launch IE (not my default browser) and take me to some "instabar" site. Low and behold, after opening up chrome, the new default search engine is now "instabar".

I remember cnet offered shady software in the past but this is right back to the days of "Gator" which inevitably lead to spyware, hijacks and malware. This program should be removed from their site immediately until a further review is done.
