"STAY AWAY FROM THIS MALWARE - JUST A BROWSER HIJACKER"

October 16, 2015  |  By shellac10

2015-10-16 10:17:06  |  By shellac10

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

None at all. This is just malware which infects your browsers, hijacks searches and then is difficult to remove. It is a total fraud and CNET should be vetting what they place on here.

All the glowing positive reviews are fake.

Cons

Everything. Stay well away. If you do get it installed - MalwareBytes will remove it.

July 15, 2015  |  By tomthetoffee

2015-07-15 15:19:54  |  By tomthetoffee

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

none that I can see

Cons

As others have said this is a front for the Trojan Horse virus. It doesn't work, soaks up vast amounts of space, takes ages and does nothing good.

Summary

Avoid, avoid, avoid

"CNET is 'SUPPOSED' to be a SAFE site to download?!"

March 16, 2015  |  By ganerd

2015-03-16 18:42:05  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

ZERO and it is OBVIOUS that ANY positive comments were paid comments or fake profiles ... including CNET!

Cons

I checked 'FREE PDF Solutions,' THOROUGHLY! EVERY SINGLE file is nothing more than a fake front for a TROJAN VIRUS! Avg stated: "Trojan horse Generic AVG detects this highly active Trojan horse and its 62823 known variants."

Summary

I am SHOCKED and appalled this site has been on CNET since 2013 ? three of these fakes were examined and APPROVED by the CNET Editors allowing a combined total more than THREE MILLION users to INFECTED! :( Sad, repeated user have warned CNET this is a fake site.
I have done a better job reviewing and evaluating these than these paid EDITOR/MODERATORS frauds.

"VIRUS - Install includes "Binkiland" trojan per Symante"

March 14, 2015  |  By krs1misosoup

2015-03-14 17:09:36  |  By krs1misosoup

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

None. I'm incredibly angry that on install, Symantec flagged this as installing "Binkiland" trojan. Symantec was able to quarantine it. I always thought Download.com was safe, but I guess all of this junk slips by. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.

Cons

None. I'm incredibly angry that on install, Symantec flagged this as installing "Binkiland" trojan. Symantec was able to quarantine it. I always thought Download.com was safe, but I guess all of this junk slips by. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.

Summary

None. I'm incredibly angry that on install, Symantec flagged this as installing THE "Binkiland" trojan. Symantec was able to quarantine it. I always thought Download.com was safe, but I guess all of this junk slips by. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.

"Thanks CNET for distributing Adware, Malware, Bloatware"

July 15, 2014  |  By SamGardocki

2014-07-15 14:42:53  |  By SamGardocki

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

The fact that Norton 360 and TeaTimer simultaneously identified and blocked this CRAP!!!

Cons

Another POS from the once-trusted CNET

Summary

CNET has once again lowered its progressively diminishing standards by fostering the use of untested and utterly worthless Crapware. I have advised most of those in my computing circles to forgo CNET as source of anything other than as a bad example.

"Do NOT download ANYTHING from Free PDF Solutions"

June 29, 2014  |  By baltopro

2014-06-29 08:06:12  |  By baltopro

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

There are NO pros

Cons

- it does NOT work - just sits there spinning its wheels after 8 hours

- comes with NO "Help" or documentation at all, and there is NO online support or forum

- it DELETED MY ORIGINAL PDF FILE (luckily I had a backup copy)

- it INSTALLED MALWARE TO MY SYSTEM: "Trojan horse Simda.QK" (luckily AVG found and quarantined this)

Summary

The above is based on Free PDF Unlocker version 1.0, downloaded directly from maker's site "freepdfsolutions.com".

Free PDF Unlocker is useless malware, and should be removed from CNET.
