    "NOT spyware free!"

    January 9, 2011  |   By MoreTruth


    Does convert wide range of video types easily


    Installs OPENCANDY network spyware/adware.


    Installer program states in the fine print that if you choose to install Hamster, you are also agreeing to install the OpenCandy Network along with the program. ***You can not install one without the other*** OpenCandy connects to the internet and feeds product recommendations to your computer. That is Adware, plain and simply. Read about OpenCandy on the internet to learn more. This should NOT be listed as Spyware free because OpenCandy collects information from your computer and sends it to OpenCandy and their 3rd party "Partners". Thumbs down for trying to sneek in adware.
