Editors' Review

Free PDF Creator from GIRDAC InfoTechnologies is a free application that can create PDF documents from hundreds of Windows applications without requiring any Adobe software. It can create a PDF document from the Print properties of any printable file. It can handle multiple users on one system and save each user's settings for regular operation, and it displays a Conversion Report when it's done.

Free PDF Creator is essentially a printer driver that lets you save or print documents in the PDF format from the Print properties dialog of any file. However, it also has a setup interface, a compact box that lets you select a destination for finished files and access the PDF-based Help file. We selected a target folder and closed the dialog. We then opened a saved text file, selected Print from the file menu, and clicked on the Easy PDF Creator printer icon. A Save As dialog appeared with the file name blank and PDF filled in as file type. Clicking Print Preferences called up a dialog with a Document tab that let us enter information about our PDF. After entering everything we needed, we saved the file and then opened it in Adobe Reader. The file was perfectly legible with all appropriate information. You can also initiate Easy PDF Creator from its setup dialog when you change file paths by clicking Create PDF. If the file path is valid, the program will create the PDF there. But we like the efficiency of accessing Easy PDF Creator from the Print properties since it makes it so easy to choose to save or print a document using very similar and familiar commands.

PDFs are everywhere these days, and many people use them for business and pleasure. Big-box PDF programs do a lot, but they cost a lot, too. Easy PDF Creator does just a few simple things, but it does them well, quickly, and for free.

"Malware!!!! No NOT Download!"

February 26, 2014  |  By juniper2579

 |  Version: Free PDF Creator 7.5.4.3

Pros

There are no pros to this download!

Cons

I wish I would have read the other reviews before I downloaded!! I trust CNET, and assumed that with the high ratings it would be fine, but I have spent the last hour trying to recover my computer from the Malware this program installed! Beware! Do not download! You get no PDF creation capabilities and a mountain of headache.

"Excellent Tool, Above All It Is Free"

December 31, 2013  |  By AlbertoMartins

 |  Version: Free PDF Creator 7.5.4.3

Pros

Free PDF Creator is one of the best software tools for creating PDF files from any Windows application. For instance, user can create PDF from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note, WordPad, and Notepad and so on. This is small application. Hence, it takes less than minute to install. It worked perfectly on my new Windows 8 Tablet. I scanned the installer before installing. I found no malwares.

Cons

Nothing to report

Summary

I am using it on daily to create reports in PDF formats to send my clients. It perfectly does the job. I am happy with this tool for creating PDF reports every day.
Everyone is using PDF files these days. Hence, this tool fulfills PDF creation absolutely at no cost.

"MALWARE WARNING! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

December 18, 2013  |  By JustThrilled

 |  Version: Free PDF Creator 7.5.4.3

Pros

ZERO! And I am extremely disappointed in CNETS dishonest review and endorsement of a malicious product.

Cons

The following Malware programs were downloaded WITHOUT my knowing consent when I downloaded Girdac PDF Creator:

1. Dealplay
2. Great Arcade Hits
3. Toolbar- which I had to uninstall from the add-on option within my initial(Firefox) browser..
4. Search Engine by Conduit
5. Quickshare

5 malware programs and CNET's rating is "OUTSTANDING"?!

Summary

Recommendations: Remove it from the rating and as a PDF service you endorse all together..

Sincerely,
CNET User

"It is neat, clean, fast and free"

November 20, 2013  |  By MickyThorndike

 |  Version: Free PDF Creator 7.5.4.2

Pros

I downloaded in 2 minutes and installed in 1 minute.
I created pdf documents from many windows files.
I found it very useful tool.
I have been using it every day.

Cons

Simple logic guys.
If any software has malaware, download.com editors do not put it on thier website.
There are many tools available to test for malaware.
I tested it with AVG, ESET, Avast, and Kaspersky. All these showed that Free PDF Creator is clean.

Summary

PDFs documents are everywhere these days. Many people use them for business and personal storage. Large PDF programs do a lot, but they cost a lot also. This Free PDF Creator does just a few simple things, easily, quickly, and for free.

Just open file.
Click on Print from the File menu.
Select GIRDAC Printer.
Click OK.
It shows Free Creator window.
Click on Create PDF button.
PDF document is ready.
The document is perfectly legible with all appropriate information.

Added some sort of malware even though I unchecked this option in the installation.
