"Installs Ask Toolbars and makes Ask.com homepage"
Convert an MP3 to another format I wanted.
I didn't notice any warnings when installing that it would install Ask software on my computer. I usually notice those readily and uncheck them. After installing this program, when I opened Firefox it had replaced both my home pages with ask.com, as well as changed the default search engine to ask.com. When I opened Chrome, it did leave my home pages alone but installed an Ask toolbar. When I opened Internet Explorer it had replaced both my homes pages and installed the Ask toolbar.
Uninstalling FormatFactory does not appear to remove or revert any of this. I have multiple homes pages and use multiple browsers because I am logged into more than a single account for the same web applications, and have multiple browsers open all day across multiple monitors. What was just supposed to be a quick conversion of a single MP3 file has now turned into a pretty annoying headache. DO NOT INSTALL THIS PROGRAM.
This program installs Ask software in all of your browsers and changes your browser settings. DO NOT INSTALL. There are better programs that do not do this.
