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

March 16, 2015  |  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

 |  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

 |  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

 |  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.

"FAKE - does not work and tries to install malware"

June 02, 2014  |  By verify159

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

NONE - It does not work, created a test file and it did nothing with a two character password. It just spins and spins making you think it is working.

Cons

Repeatedly tries to install malware, then leaves something on your computer that seems to prevent you from writing review.

Summary

This should be removed from CNET.

"This app sure is a life saver."

May 22, 2014  |  By AucoinJulie

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0

Pros

I had some very important PDF files password protected because my kids and others sometimes use the system and I just wanted to be safe. I was so frantic when I realised I had forgotten the passwords. I downloaded this PDF unlocker and it worked.

Cons

No cons say.

"Serious Virus"

April 21, 2014  |  By benjamincall

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 1.0.9.2

Pros

I'm not sure it has any. It didn't work and it installed a serious virus on my machine.

Cons

Pretended to "crack" the pdf while installing malignant software that necessitated a system restore.

Summary

Don't put your system at risk.
