    "Caution!!! Do not download!!!"

    October 16, 2012  |   By gskybo

    Version: Media Player Codec Pack 4.2.3

    Pros

    NONE!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!

    Cons

    This is some sort of scam. It wiped out all of "my documents", itunes, etc. and reset the internet explorer, desktop, etc. to like new status. It's like a reset button/program was run. Thank God I have Carbonite.

    Summary

    PLEASE do not download. The 8 million downloads must be some sort of scam.

    Updated on Oct 16, 2012

    Reboot your computer a SECOND time after download if you have issues like I did. Somehow, everything came back after rebooting a second time. Still scary. Back-up your pc before downloading!

    "BEWARE!!!!!"

    October 13, 2012  |   By TechmGuy

    Version: Media Player Codec Pack 4.2.3

    Pros

    none whatsoever

    Cons

    Hijacked my browser - set the home page to "ask.com", set the default search engine to ask.com, and installed the ask.com toolbar. No telling what other damage it did. And my DVDs STILL will not play!

    Do NOT use the quick easy install method! Better yet, just avoid this download.

    Summary

    Nasty hijackware - should be illegal. Does not make the Windows Media Player play basic DVDs.
