Editors' Review

+

People share PDFs more than any other type of file, but they can be a pain to edit. Free PDF to Word switches them over to work in text editors so you can make quick edits. Though the program mentions Microsoft Word's ubiquitous word processor, it also works with Open Office and other open-source programs.

The program won't take up much hard-drive space and it can be installed in seconds. Free PDF to Word isn't exciting to look at, but it works like a charm. The best part is that it maintains most of the PDF's design, so you don't have to spend time putting the layout back together. You can make your edits and then export the file back to PDF. It will still have all the colors, images, and graphs it had before your edits. This software creates a special folder for the new document, but you can change this before converting. That way, you can keep the same file organization and you won't have to go searching for the converted document.

Free PDF to Word is a must-have for students, club members, and anyone who shares work online. It can shave hours off of your workload.

"Useful? in what sense?"

October 26, 2014

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

Actually I don't see any!

Cons

If you just need to conver a non-editable PDF to a non-editable Word document, then this "software" will do, but since I don't see the use of that, the program is totally useless to me. I'd pay for a program that saves me the time to REALLY convert any reasonable PDF into an EDITABLE docx document, but this.... pfff!. There are not even any options to configure and force ths program to render an editable file, unless you PDF is already searchable!

Summary

Don't bother to even download. Besides, this thing tries to install a bunch of useless parasite programs if you are not carefull enough to avoid it.

CNet's Download.com used to be trustworthy for at least vetting the malicious software it pimps... CAVEAT FREEBIE!

"NOT A CONVERTER, FULL OF SPYWARE AND BROWSER HIJACKER"

October 22, 2014  |  By forums123

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

NOTHING WORTHLESS FAKE CRAP DESIGNED TO INSTALL TONS OF

Cons

INSTALLS ALL KINDS OF MALWARE, SPYWARE, BROWSER HIJACKERS, INCLUDING ASTROMENDA AND OTHERS... VERY NEGATIVE IMPACT ON YOUR PC.

Summary

NO GOOD, INSTALLS MALWARE, AND HIJACKERS, THIS PROGRAM DOESN'T EVEN CONVERT PDF TO WORD DOCS, IT INSERTS AN IMAGE FILE (SCREEN SHOT) OF THE PDF INTO A WORD DOC, AND IS COMPLETELY UNEDITABLE, AS IT DOES NOT CONVERT IT INTO A TRUE WORD TEXT EDITABLE DOCUMENT. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME

None that I can think of

Installs AdWare even though I selected NOT to install it. And I wasn't even using CNETs installer that is also filled with AdWare

"Manipulates the browser"

September 24, 2014  |  By frsfrs

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

Alternative to other programs

Cons

Away from this program!
The installation repeteadly and insistently formulates the request of installing additional software. Even not authorizing any further installation, Free PDF to Word Converter manipulates the bars of the browser and installs unwanted search engines.
Such kind of behaviour should be banned in CNET and the program eliminated from the CNET offer.
