    "Regret downloading it"

    June 26, 2013   |   By mzconsumir

    Version: Free Screen Video Capture 4.1.7

    Pros

    I don't know

    Cons

    comes with malware

    Summary

    I trust cnet but this one slipped by them. I carefully did the custom install, unchecked every box for every offer included, double checked, then installed. I got the browser toolbar that tries to redirect everything in spite of this. I am spending hours looking up info how to get rid of the malware. I have the best anti-virus and malware programs running, too. Sneaky.

    "Deftly sidestepped all the malware but further issues!"

    March 26, 2013   |   By AvgPerson

    Version: Free Screen Video Capture 4.1.7

    Pros

    Video capture easy and reasonable quality

    Cons

    Audio was of such poor quality I could not use the video. Worse than a mobile phone going out of range.

    Summary

    1 star. Be prepared to uninstall

    "it will not give you a registration key"

    January 06, 2013   |   By SoftwareCritic1

    Version: Free Screen Video Capture 4.1.7

    Pros

    It seems easy enough to use

    Cons

    I downloaded this and it says it is "free", yet when you go to register it, you can fill it out and it says that it will send you a registration key in a few minutes. I tried registering it for a week in a row and nothing.

    When you do go to the registration page it asks for a donation.

    Summary

    Do not waste your time downloading this and going through the hassle of giving out your email address and information when they do not reply back. I gave it a one but it should be a zero.

    "FAKE Software FULL OF MALWARE!!!!"

    February 22, 2012   |   By HondaBox

    Version: Free Screen Video Capture 4.1.7

    Pros

    None.
    Trys to mimic CamStudio to fool you into thinking it is real. RECORDS NOTHING

    Cons

    Full of malware. Changes homepage, adds several toolbars and hijacks your internet searches.

    Summary

    Shame on CNet for allowing this piece of crap software on their site.
    I no longer trust CNet for malware free software and you should not either.

    "Only records sound from mic input."

    November 25, 2011   |   By thomas_trotter

    Version: Free Screen Video Capture 4.1.7

    Pros

    Don't know -- when I found out it wouldn't record the music of an audio visualization playing in Windows Media Player I had no reason to use it.

    Cons

    Doesn't record music from WMP. Might install malware if you're not careful.

    Summary

    I suppose it might be ok for stuff like simple tutorials. But it apparently only records audio from mic. Possible malware association.

    "I'd rate it 0 if it would let me!"

    September 16, 2011   |   By paul_61

    Version: Free Screen Video Capture 4.1.7

    Pros

    Simple, seemingly easy to use.

    Cons

    It did not save my first recording. No error message or anything.

    Next the install installs crap on your PC.

    Then it changed my home page to some search conduit url.

    CNET you need to vet the software on your site better!

    Summary

    Do not download this application. I will install a tool bar you don't need even if you say not to. It will also change your home page even if you say not to.

    *** DON'T TRUST THIS COMPANY! ****
