Free CBR Reader offers a seamless interface for opening and viewing CBR comic book files on your computer. As an image viewer, it has been streamlined to emulate the comic viewing and reading process, and it works quickly by loading the images all at once. With multiple screen size options, the ability to open CBR files from a hard drive or memory card, and a clean interface without excess options to slow things down, it's the perfect tool for someone with large numbers of these files.

Installation of Free CBR Reader can take a bit of time, especially if you don't already have core files installed on your machine. Once you are done, however, it loads quickly and without any background files or processes. It's fast, loads the CBR files almost instantly from your storage device, and it provides plenty of options for how to display those comic book panels once they are loaded. Additionally, because of how it is developed, Free CBR Reader works on almost any version of Windows, so it can be installed on any machine in your home for seamless viewing of comic books -- room to room, device to device.

If you have a large number of CBR files, want to read them on your PC, and want a fast, responsive, and effective tool for opening those files, however big they are, then consider Free CBR Reader. It's free and provides a perfect environment for reading your comic book files.

"Malware PIECE of TRASH"

July 03, 2015

2015-07-03 14:59:15

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None, this thing tries to circumvent virus checks by going through a two-stage installation process.

Cons

On the second step you CANNOT simply save the exe file and scan it. It takes over your browser and installs some Filter program garbage changing your default setting.

Summary

DO NOT INSTALL THIS PIECE OF TRASH

CNET SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR LEAVING THIS MALWARE ON THEIR SITE.

"Full of Malware DO NOT INSTALL"

January 01, 2015  |  By caiwmkp

2015-01-01 23:55:00  |  By caiwmkp

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

There is indeed a cbr reader in the installation

Cons

The .exe file with also install 3 ******** "utility" programs, 1 ******** browser add on and then **** with your bowser settings.

I downloaded this after I read the reviews. It looked to be verified safe to install. I think the publishers release a "clean" copy at first. After cnet and users review it and verify it is safe, the publisher then releases a version that installs all sort of crap.

After install, I had 3 ******** malware "utilities" on my system. I am running IE 11 and that was all ****** up also. It had installed an add on that ran a bunch of ads with links to malicious software and changed the configurations for search engines and home page.

Because the malware is built as "utility" software antivirus will not detect or remove it. You will have to remove it manually and it is a pain. It took me about an hour to find and remove everything.

I hope nobody ever fall for this garbage again.

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD. FULL OF MALWARE

"Packed with adware."

May 14, 2014  |  By freeware_yay

2014-05-14 15:26:30  |  By freeware_yay

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

i didnt get around to using it before i uninstalled it.

Cons

I installed the program and it put adware on my computer which caused tons of nasty ads to pop up on web pages i would go to that normally dont have ads. Had to uninstall like 10 things of adware.

Summary

I am surprised that this site allows for programs like this to be on here. I had thought that they were scanned or maybe you guys used to do that.

"Jam Packed with Hidden Spyware - BEWARE"

May 13, 2014  |  By thetrivialsublime

2014-05-13 11:22:13  |  By thetrivialsublime

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I like the program itself, but my complaint is the shady spyware bundled with it.

Cons

Yes, it gives you the option at the beginning of installation if you want to "change your default search engine to Conduit and prevent any programs from overriding that" but even after carefully turning down all these offers my Malwarebytes still went berserk on me.

Summary

I am disappointed in CNET for allowing such harmful spyware to surreptitiously ride along with this download and installation.
