"Installs toolbar, changes search to yahoo, etc..."
It's free and it works.
You have to buy the pro version to change the quality of MP3s. I like to rip my music to the highest quality possible (320 Kbps). It also installs a toolbar and changed my default search from Google to Yahoo. I hate programs that manipulate my system automatically.
I'm sure there are other free converting programs that don't install toolbars and such.
