"Complete failure and watch for other program installs"

July 18, 2015  |  By pietergp

2015-07-18 07:36:03  |  By pietergp

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

There is no benefit to this program, only risks.

Cons

The program converted the page numbers only. The installation is not intuitive as the program downloads a file that needs to be run to download yet another file. During the install process one is asked if one wishes to install another host of products related to PC Health. Lastly one ends up with Yahoo as the search engine and home page.

Summary

Worthless as it did not do what it said it would do.

"Spyware infestation"

May 31, 2014  |  By AzzidReign

2014-05-31 13:08:03  |  By AzzidReign

 |  Version: Not Found

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

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. I've since found onlineocr which works for what I need without the spyware.

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

2014-05-14 07:51:55  |  By NanoProfessor

 |  Version: Not Found

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

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

2014-04-07 00:54:22  |  By capitanflorius

 |  Version: Not Found

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.
