    "Spyware infestation"

    May 31, 2014   |   By AzzidReign

    Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

    Pros

    Asks you to install about 4-5 things of spyware trash. If you don't know what you are doing, you might miss it right away. Had to click decline every time until it started to install. The converter didn't work for me but I'm assuming it was because it was a scanned document and not made as a text pdf.

    Cons

    Summary

    While this program may work, WATCH OUT FOR THE SPYWARE WHEN YOU LAUNCH THE EXE.

    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD - CONTAINS VIRUS - DONE WITH CNET"

    May 14, 2014   |   By NanoProfessor

    Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

    Pros

    None - never even installed. Hopefully I don't have any viruses.

    Cons

    As others have noted, this contains viruses and malware. I used to come to CNET because I could trust their downloads. They were free from embedded toolbars and adware. Then they started including those unless you chose "advanced options" during your install (which just means "I don't want malicious crap installed on my computer"). Now it seems their downloads just have plain old viruses. This will be the last time I visit CNET. Once you were great, CNET, but something changed and now you are everything you weren't supposed to be.

    Summary

    This program is dangerous. CNET is too.

    Updated on May 14, 2014

    Sorry, forgot to specify that it didn't install because AVG identified a virus. While sometimes this happens erroneously, I've had too many bad experiences with CNET downloads in the last two years to think it wasn't a virus. I trust AVG over CNET downloads at this point.

    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

    April 22, 2014   |   By jlsko

    Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0.9.2

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    Downloaded a bunch of junk - something called Search Protect was the hardest to clean up. My virus protection notified me that it removed a virus too. BUT DID NOT DOWNLOAD AN ACTUAL PDF CONVERTER!!!??!

    "THIS PROGRAM CONVERT pdf IN txt FILE"

    April 07, 2014   |   By capitanflorius

    Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0.0.1

    Pros

    Few pros. (only fast in conversion).

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the program does not preserve the formatting and even the font size, does not support images.
    During installation care should be taken to discard all the crap and garbage that it tries to install.

    Summary

    We can do better to copy and paste from a PDF to a text file.

    "Software makes editing PDFs easy"

    March 13, 2014   |   By Juliohill

    Version: Free PDF to Text Converter 1.0

    Pros

    PDFs are a great especially when one wants to share data online. It is possible to include any data like graphs, images, tables, etc and the security features are also great. The only drawback is that making any changes to PDFs is not possible. That is why I downloaded the Free PDF to Text Converter. With this software one can convert the PDF to a .txt file, make the necessary changes and change it back to PDF format. This software is free, easy to use and quick. It can convert a number of PDFs at once

    Cons

    Great software. No cons
