    "Deceptive software"

    July 13, 2013  |   By danielrbradley

    Pros

    Does an average job of re-encoding audio

    Cons

    Installs ad-ware without asking, which results in hijacking of your homepage in all browsers, destroying any saved sessions in Chrome and installing unauthorised toolbars.

    Limited options for converting audio files.

    Doesn't copy any meta-data in the transcoded files.

    Summary

    Avoid this software at all costs. Regret installing it and causing myself frustration at having to sort out the mess its third party software caused. There's much better open source options available with non of the malicious software attached.
