"Didn't work"

May 24, 2016  |  By Mergatroid Mania

2016-05-24 15:39:55  |  By Mergatroid Mania

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

It's free (if you don't count all your wasted time)

Cons

Didn't work.

Summary

I set the output file directory, set the input file and started the app. It ran for five hours, and when it finally completed, it did not generate a output file. It also did not alter the original file. Five hours and no file. I won't waste my time on this junk again.

"Did not work"

April 18, 2016  |  By limtzhng

2016-04-18 08:54:19  |  By limtzhng

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

Free as advertised.

Cons

Uses the iteration method. May take forever to break the password. One of the buttons actually permanently deletes the pdf file.

Summary

Not worthwhile trying.

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

October 16, 2015  |  By shellac10

2015-10-16 10:17:06  |  By shellac10

 |  Version: Not Found

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.

"avoid like the plague"

July 15, 2015  |  By tomthetoffee

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

 |  Version: Not Found

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: Not Found

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.
