    Pros

    none.. it didnt even work

    Cons

    im using bitdefender total security and it wont stop freaking out. i uninstalled from control panel. i also found that there were other programs i didnt want installed on the same day. even after uninstalling, bitdefender is freaking out.

    C:\Program Files(x860\PureLeads\plsappLSP.exe

    the pureleads folder isnt even there anymore. i uninstalled the damn thing and BitD. is still detecting it. i dont know if bitd is overreacting or what. one thing i do know.. none of this **** happened til i tried to use this **** program.

    i dont even know what to ******* do now. i guess i'll need to deal with ******* customer support from ******* bitdefender

    Summary

    download.cnet has lost credibility in my book. how does this program have so many negative reviews and still remain up. i over looked the user reviews and trusted cnet. never again.

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 5.0.1

    Pros

    None. Nada. Zip. It's a virus.

    "One of my favorite downloaders."

    February 11, 2014  |   By rtolas

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 5.0.1

    Pros

    Works Great in Opera on most sites, will even download from YouTube.

    Cons

    Doesn't work on Chrome anymore. Won't download from Official YouTube Channels such as Vevo.

    Summary

    When Chrome recently updated, Flash Video Downloader stopped working, so I downloaded Opera and installed the extension there and have had no problems since. It will download Youtube videos from users, but not from official channels like Vevo or Universal. As for Adware, when downloading and installing any freeware, always select the advanced install option so you can you can opt out of all the crap you don't want.

    January 2, 2014  |   By doug1296

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 5.0.1

    Pros

    Extension works fine as did version 2.3.9

    Cons

    This also installed the "PASSSHOW" program and a PASSSHOW Chrome extension. Not malware but foistware. There was no notice whatsoever that the foistware was being installed.

    "Lying Spamware Dogs"

    December 9, 2013  |   By DonRodgers

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 5.0.1

    Pros

    It does download videos

    Cons

    It adds spyware/maleware and does not tell you it is going to do it. Some places call it "Superfish" Everytime you go to a shopping site and select an item it puts up a popup windows with lots of other places selling the item and similar items. It is always in the way and you cannot see what you were trying to see. You can close the window but as soon as you move your mouse and ask for more photos, or specifications the window pops back up again. I had to delete each of my extensions until I found that this is the one that was causing the problem. They don't even have a way to turn it off. Other extensions at least gave that options. This is infuriating that I should have to go through all this time/expense to fix this. The developer should be ashamed and CNET should give a warning that this happens instead of giving it a 5 star rating.

    Summary

    Run, don't walk away
