"Worked better than VLC"

December 08, 2014  |  By SergeiProkofiev

 |  Version: Free WMV to MP4 Converter 1.0

Pros

Did not clip off the last second of my video, like VLC did.

Cons

Worked fine. The UI is weak (hard to find your file), but what do you expect from free software? There was no malware (that I've found yet, anyway)

Summary

Not sure why there are so many hyper-negative reviews of this (and other) files here. I used the 'Direct Download' link rather than the big Download button, so maybe that helps avoids malware. I don't know. In any case, I had no problems whatsoever. I wish CNET would moderate the comments on here a bit better.

"MALWARE! DO NOT INSTALL!"

September 06, 2014  |  By z0gster

 |  Version: Free WMV to MP4 Converter 1.0

Pros

Are you kidding me?

Cons

Installs a TON of malware and spyware, and it didn't even install the application it was supposed to be! Why is this on here??? I thought CNET was trustworthy! I just wasted half my day cleaning it off my computer!

"ADWARE/MALWARE GARBAGE!"

August 22, 2014  |  By shelosa

 |  Version: Free WMV to MP4 Converter 1.0

Pros

No idea. I never got around to using the actual program, since I "rage uninstalled" after seeing the nonsense dumped onto my laptop during the install.

Cons

The installation process kept loading more and more adware onto my system. Want a few laughs? Install this piece of s--t and then go to Programs and Features and see all the additional trash dumped onto your system.

Summary

This kind of sewage gives software authors everywhere a bad name. Shame on CNET for degrading themselves with this kind of useless garbage.

"Forced to accept Trovi search & Conduit toolbar"

May 27, 2014  |  By gudguy1

 |  Version: Free WMV to MP4 Converter 1.0.9.1

Pros

From what I see, it might be good, but there are unnecessary requirements and modifications - see Cons.

Cons

In addition to grrrabber post, for my download:

Step 2 is step where you're asked to Accept to continue install.
It also states that by clicking accept, you confirm you have read and agree to the Search Protect terms and Privacy Policy AND agree to install Search Protect.
1) You can't even scroll through the instructions on the right.
2) Search Protect wants to modify your home page and default search to "Trovi Search" for IE, Firefox & Chrome AND prevent "3rd parties" from changing your browsers home page and search settings.

Also, the Decline box is grayed out and you cannot choose to decline, you have to kill the process.

Summary

So, if you REALLY want this WMV - MP4 Converter, go on and add this potential spyware (that is what it sounds like).
To tell you that you cannot install the converter without Trovi and the home page changes, well, that is not something my peers and I would do...

Otherwise, look for another converter...

"Deceptive Installation"

May 15, 2014  |  By grrrabber

 |  Version: Free WMV to MP4 Converter 1.0.9.1

Pros

Unknown, installation was super shady.

Cons

Attempts to trick you into installing spyware.

Summary

During installation, it prompts you to install half-a-dozen other programs, only the name of the program is in small print. Many of the prompts have the "Free WMV to MP4 Converter" masthead, then in large print says "Click Accept now to continue your installation." Other prompts display the spyware more prominently, but also tout their "features." In smaller print under that, it says what program you're really installing. The accept button looks like a button of average size, while the Decline "button" doesn't even look like one. For the record, it tries to install SavePass, Get Desktop Notifications When Storms Are Heading Your Way, Optimizer Pro, Access Your PC from Anywhere, RegClean Pro, MyPCBackup, and AdvancedSystem Protector. While some of those aren't the actual names, just descriptions, anyone who's cleaned spyware out of a system recognizes those descriptions.
