    "RUN FROM FREECODER, DON'T WALK!!!!!!!!"

    June 3, 2013  |   By butchiephoo

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    I first saw freecoder on utube and working with utube to download music I thought it was safe to download. I wish I wouyld have checked before download. most of the time I do.

    Cons

    The people from freecoder shoud be shot on sight for what they do to innocent people. Not only did the download freeze my computer I wasn't able to log on to AOL. I had my friend help me to remove the program, he got my computer to work and did his best to remove freecoder, but he wasn't able to do it. A search turned up a site that finally did remove freecoder but it cost me $65 for the downloads.

    Summary

    I hope you are smarter than me and the rest of the people on this site who downloaded freecoder before checking it out. People like the A-holes at freecoder are the ones who make the internet a dangerious place.

    "Good program, NOT worth all the JUNK it comes with it."

    December 28, 2012  |   By spthomas01

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    Freecorder is a good program for free. The latest version doesn't use a toolbar, just a button on the menu bar, and it works well.

    Cons

    This will install MANY different pieces of junk! It will install Two different toolbars, with hooks into all your Chrome, Firefox, and IE Browsers. AND it will install software that will pop up a FREEWARE generated ad box every time you run any query in the browser that it thinks it related (query CD, and you'll get a FreeWare box of CD related ADs). It takes FOREVER to get rid of all this crap.

    Summary

    1. GREAT program
    2. HORRIBLE experience. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!
    3. This company, Applian, makes great software. So don't be cheap, and BUY one of their products like Replay Music, WM Recorder, etc. Pay a bit, but no ads. And you can download trials from CNET.

    "worst decision i've made in a long, long time."

    December 4, 2012  |   By Aplliansux

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    3 hours spent uninstalling all the crap that they snuck in with freecorder(claro search engine in both firefox and google, stronghold),the strange behavior of my computer, slowed down internet, and the 2 hours spent downloading norton power eraser then comodo cleaning essentials, running each, makes the short lived enjoyment of a couple youtube vids, which have been deleted along with the software, pale in comparison. worst, most unproductive day i've experienced in quite some time!

    Cons

    see above.

    Summary

    freecorder sucks!! wished i'd never heard of it! am only giving it the half star because my review would otherwise go unpublished.

    Updated on Dec 4, 2012

    meant chrome, not google.

    "Malware and spyware and bots, oh MY!"

    August 11, 2012  |   By lisarothstein

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    Less than none. Worst decision EVER.

    Cons

    I used this program years ago and didn't mind its few ads and the toolbar -- considered it a fair trade for a free program. But now it comes with secret Trojans and malware that hijacks your registry and it took the Geek Squad hours to remove from my husband's brand new laptop. It is impossible to uninstall, and when you try, it launches malicious actions that send your personal data to the internet. It even infected his email.

    Summary

    RUN THE OTHER WAY FROM ALL APPLIAN PRODUCTS AND WARN ALL YOUR FRIENDS. Do not believe the positive reviews you read here on cnet -- either they are plants from Applian (as I suspect) or these people have somehow failed to notice hat this program has done to their computers. I can't believe this is legal. Anyone wanting to mount a class action lawsuit count us in.

    Updated on Aug 11, 2012

    I had to give it a star or I couldn't upload my review. Official rating, minus 1000 stars!!

    "STAY AWAY - Lots of Spyware and Trojan Viruses."

    May 30, 2012  |   By Realst07

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    This program would be fine if it did not contain secret programs that edit your registry and hide themselves on your machine. You are not able to simply uninstall this program. Even if you roll back your computer, the registry has been changed and the viruses and spyware will be there. I have lots of trouble because of this....STAY AWAY.

    "Don't even think of using this"

    May 12, 2012  |   By phacker

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    I thought this would make it easy to download a youtube video but instead it did a lot of other things instead.

    Cons

    This has been nothing but trouble since
    I tried this. It first kept going into some "green" message each time. I got rid of this through remove programs and I now get a hijack to conduit each time I try to use google search.

    Summary

    Can these people be prosecuted for doing this?

    "Avoid Freecorder!"

    February 2, 2012  |   By Vredel

    Version: Freecorder 4.02

    Pros

    None, unless your willing to risk your registry for this crap!

    Cons

    Freecorder carries the BING search engine, which is hard to get rid of.
    And Spybot-Search and Destroy found it to carry W3i.IQ5.fraud which alters the registry in at least one location;
    W3i.IQ5.fraud: [SBI $678078F9] Settings (Registry key,)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\W3i

    Summary

    NOT worth the trouble.
