"This program sucks."

February 10, 2012  |  By Hoss4blues

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

Colorful tool bar but no real Pros.

Cons

The original version I had worked great. Videos would auto record and the program was easy to use. The new version wants you to install another program as part of its package. It's basically worthless. I gave up on it.

Summary

Totally worthless, don't waste your time.

"Are there negative five stars?"

November 08, 2011  |  By ErdaVonValhalla

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

None I can think of.

Cons

Took over my computer. Changed my homepage. Changed my search engine. Who knows what it added when I wasn't watching? Almost screwed up everything. Impossible to uninstall...

Summary

Looks easy to install. Really, installed in seconds. Uninstalling is entirely another story. After you think you've finally got your homepage back, your search engine back, here we go again: the damned thing pops up out of nowhere and tries to take over your computer again. And again. And again... If you think about installing it - think again. DON'T!

"Trojans, spyware galor"

August 29, 2011  |  By newbull

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

does not work, will not uninstall

Cons

Takes over computer and cannot be controlled or removed from CMT. Owner retains FULL control of its existence in your computer.

Summary

After two weeks of trying to get rid of ALL traces of this program, I gave up and wiped my hard drive and re-programed it. It was a last resort, but the only thing I could do.

"Good Software With Minor Drawbacks"

August 01, 2011  |  By Cam_E_Ron

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

~Various file conversions
~Easy for most to learn and use
~Makes audio recording a snap

Cons

~Possible malware installations?
~Audio recorder has limited functionality
~Lots of steps to get desired result
~Conflicts with my Anti-Malware sometimes

Summary

This is a great piece of ware to be had for the file-converting enthusiast, the YouTube vid-ripper, &/or the illegal music grabber. It's relatively easy to learn, and once you've learned it, a powerful tool. However, you may have to memorize quite a few steps to get what you desire from it. Although I did get new malware, I can't say whether it is attributed to the download. Also, my antivirus, antispyware, (and, specifically, firewall) didn't seem to like it, but then again I have them set to maximum security. Also, the audio recorder SAYS it records ANY sound produced through the speakers, but it failed to work when I had my browsers closed and was playing a DVD that I wanted an mp3 of. These are the only drawbacks that kept it from getting a 5-star rating from me.

P.S.: If Freecorder is the cause of the malware, the malware is relatively harmless as long as you have antivirus and antispyware programs set in place.

"Works very well!"

July 22, 2011  |  By Guidotkp24

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

Easy YouTube Downloader - button right above video on YouTube page
File Format Converter - works quickly - broad variety of formats available

Cons

No version for Google Chrome
Can only get it to work on Firefox, bot IE9

Summary

My computers are protected by Norton 360, plus I run MalwareBytes weekly. I've never experienced any of the problems that some of the other reviewers have reported. It seems to be mostly AVG users reporting problems. I've considered buying Applian's Replay Capture Suite, but so far their Freecorder has done everything I've needed it to do.

"Pile of dung"

June 30, 2011  |  By SiY11

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

Horrible Uninstall experience

Cons

Failed to install, changed default search engine and home page even though I told it not to during install, AVG hates this program and promptly killed it.

Summary

Do not install, I had to dig through the registry to remove it.

"Do NOT install this!!!!!"

June 08, 2011  |  By Gellrose

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

Nothing - BUGS

Cons

SUCKS, FULL of bugs. I had the old version (awesome) and by accident deleted it and can't get it back. I can go on about how excellent old one is but this one. CRAP, GARBAGE, can't beleive made by same company as the older version.

Summary

Turn away from this one!

"Worked great - BUT beware of what is in background"

May 26, 2011  |  By Shasta34

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

Downloaded every thing I wanted, it coverts to many formats, it has lots of functionality.

Cons

Adds another toolbar, at install it wants to change my homepage, and system ran horrible

Summary

I suspect this program is doing a lot behind the scenes to my system. My CPU usage was all over the place and scans with different AVG and anti-malware programs did not find anything. An attempted DOS backup revealed recent video downloads in the all users folder even though I downloaded somewhere else. It could have to do with Vista, but I would find something else.

"Don't install!"

May 13, 2011  |  By masaka2

 |  Version: Freecorder 4.02

Pros

It can mess your computer for free

Cons

It changed my home page and default search engine even though the installer had these options turned off. When it came to converting videos, the "converter" displayed an empty list of files, and I did not find a way to get any files in the list.

Summary

Submit to antivirus lab of your choice to have the program blocked forever and save others from trouble and frustration.
