    "Don't Touch This"

    June 6, 2014  |   By bchgreen

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 2.0

    Pros

    NONE - MALWARE

    Cons

    Connects you to this: The FLV Runner Toolbar is frequently categorized as a browser hijacker because it takes control of the Web browser and does things the user may not have specifically requested. For example, even if you set your "home" page, FLV Runner will display its own site (http://search.conduit.com/). Or when you try to get to Google or Bing to perform a search, the browser will redirect to FLV Runner Toobar (search.conduit.com). A toolbar will also appear at the top of your browser window.

    It's technically not a virus, but it does exhibit plenty of malicious traits, such as rootkit capabilities to hook deep into the operating system, browser hijacking, and in general just interfering with the user experience. The industry generally refers to it as a "PUP," or potentially unwanted program.

    Summary

    Shame on CNET for letting this on their site - my trust in software to download has diminished considerably.

    "Does what it says on the tin"

    March 11, 2014  |   By tanker12uk

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 2.0

    Pros

    Its a simple process which does not take much working out and did convert a fairly large pdf. manual into word without any trouble. It worked with office 2010 and 2007 without any problems so I'm happy with it.

    Cons

    You have to be very aware of what you are installing as you install this product as it has a substantial number of add on programs which I did not want they are easy to not install but a blind install would not be my recommendation

    Summary

    For a freeware program which is truly free this is a good choice but watch what you click whilst doing the install

    "Free Tool for Office Use"

    March 4, 2014  |   By Carrywight

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 2.0

    Pros

    These days people expect attachments to be sent in the most professional manner. PDFs and Word Docs are the most common types of attachments. However, if you want to edit the PDFs and finding the right tool to convert them to Word Docs for editing purpose this is the right tool. The Free PDF to Word converter is free and easy to download. The best thing about this tool is that major part of the formatting and layout remains intact after conversion. You can save the changed document back to PDF for further use or any other purpose.

    Cons

    One feature I would like to see added is to integrate the Word to PDF converter into this app too.

    Summary

    I have always faced a problem with pdf files, although they are great and extremely useful- and the problem was editing. I was unable to edit PDF files, until I downloaded the new PDF to Word converter. This application now allows me to convert pdf files to Word, so I can edit them and make all the changes that I need to, to the data. What's more, the application is fast,free, secure and reliable.

    "Not free at all."

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 2.0

    Pros

    None that I can detect.

    Cons

    "Totally Free" is false advertising. As soon as you try to convert a file, it tells you that you must pay $9.99 and wait for a serial number.

    Summary

    Useless.

    Pros

    CNET IS SUPPOSED TO REVIEW THIS STUFF AND TELL US IF THIS IS RELIABLE! I WILL NO LONGER USE CNET OR DOWNLOAD.COM AS THEY OBVIOUSLY CANNOT BE TRUSTED EITHER.

    Cons

    Summary

    WASTE OF 3 DAYS OF MY LIFE FIXING MY PC AFTER THIS DISASTER! I DIDNT EVEN FINISH THE DOWNLOAD AS I SAW I WAS BEING CRAMMED IN THE PROCESS BUT IT WAS STILL TOO LATE! I HAVE TRIED TO POST THIS REVIEW 3 TIMES NOW AND IT KEEPS FAILING....OBVIOUSLY CNET HAS LOST ALL CREDIBILITY.
