    "Get Ready to Uninstall all the Garbage"

    May 29, 2012  |   By NickPendrell

    Pros

    Doees what is says on the tin - it's free and it records audio without requiring a degree in computer science to figure out how to use it.

    Cons

    It *WILL* add a ton of crapware to your PC.

    Summary

    I had read the other reviews which all mention the amount of crapware that comes bundled with this product and just assumed they'd forgotten to untick all of the boxes. However, they are right and I was wrong.

    No matter how clever you might be, you will still end up with toolbars on your browser(s) if you download this app.

    I was able to remove them all without too much effort and the product still works, but it was still a pain in the neck.
