    "Horrible, Adds toolbar to browsers even after uninstall"

    April 16, 2012  |   By Rsg82

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    SPYware- if you like spyware that is.

    Cons

    TOOLBARs in browsers, spyware.

    Summary

    Don't take my word for it... read all the other reviews.

    "Malware - do not download"

    December 1, 2011  |   By PiezoSapphire

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    There are no positives given that this acts like malware.

    Cons

    Installed and declined add-ons. Recorded short test and tried to play back. Three seconds into playback, my firewall tells me it is blocking a connection to an IP and considers the connection risky. I don't connect and sound-record freezes

    Summary

    CNET needs to remove this from the approved list--it's hurting their brand.

    Updated on Dec 1, 2011

    When I started Chrome, I found it had installed the toolbar in chrome. I also found that it tried to install a toolbar in Firefox (Bless you, Mozilla, for requiring opt-in for toolbars in Firefox 8 and above.) And I found that even though I had uninstalled it through the control panel, it left files and folders on my hard drive. I should have checked reviews before I downloaded, but I was in a hurry and trusted CNET's certification since it's always been good before. Now I don't, and you shouldn't either.

    "This is junk and will infect your computer"

    November 30, 2011  |   By jshook07

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    Never worked

    Cons

    It installed a toolbar, even though it gave me no option to do so. Then I uninstalled the toolbar, but it keeps popping back up, and resetting the settings in Chrome.

    Summary

    Virus/Spyware

    "Total fail, and forced toolbar install after Opt-Out"

    November 30, 2011  |   By CelticClergy

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    none, it never successfully installed since I opted-out of all invasive add-ons (4 separate attempts from 3 different download sources)

    Cons

    even after opting-out of toolbar and other add-ons, which prevented successful install of actual software, I found it had installed toolbar anyway. After uninstalling from each browser and Programs folder, then rebooting pc, SpyBot and Vipre still found residual trojan spore and System Mechanic had to fix my registry.

    Summary

    The last update seems to have been to turn it into a trojan virus, infecting registry and browsers even when you opt-out and uninstall. If you opt-out of all the add-ons it will not install the program you were actually needing but you will be infected with the add-ons you refused.

    "It is wonderful!"

    November 29, 2011  |   By themoonmaiden

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    Easy to download. Easy to use. Good sound quality.

    Cons

    You need additional software to save files. It isn't very attractive.

    "Good, but god it's ugly"

    November 23, 2011  |   By SingularitySky

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    Sound was really clear, crisp, sharp, and sound level meters worked really well.

    Cons

    It's really ugly looking software.

    Summary

    So to sum it up, I used it and it worked really well. I was able to save sound files, so I don't know what some of the other users on here have been smoking. I don't use IE, but use chrome, so it might have installed a toolbar I'll never know lol. However, I have switched to a $20 paid application that does the same job but isn't UGLY. I use sound recording software a lot, I want something that doesn't make my eyes bleed. Developer, take note.

    "Excellent program, easy to opt out of paid extras"

    November 16, 2011  |   By flyingx4squirrel

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    Very simple and easy to use, includes hotkey to instantly record or stop. Program saves instantly as soon as you press stop, it does not require you to buy anything to save. You can set it to save in any of four formats: mp3, ogg, wma, or wav. Set it to save in any directory you want, then edit the file with any editing program - buying CoolEdit is not required either.

    Cons

    Almost didn't download this because of the "spyware" reviews. It's very easy to opt out - there's two boxes to uncheck, and a "Decline" button. Free Sound Recorder will still install perfectly if you decline the toolbar. Nothing is installed without your knowledge - Read Before You Click!!

    Summary

    Very good at what it does, no payment required for anything, and no mandatory spyware install.

    "I downloaded the "FREE" software"

    November 3, 2011  |   By 99FBIAGENT

    Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.7

    Pros

    It does record, but you can not save it.

    Cons

    The FREE SOFTWARE does not let you SAVE unless you purchase the product. WHAT KIND OF FREE IS THAT?

    Summary

    IT IS A LIE.
