    "PDF24 EXCELLENT....BEWARE OF TROVI SEARCH VIRUS!!"

    May 19, 2014  |   By stargate13

    Version: PDF24 Creator 6.3.2

    Pros

    The program is excellent, easy to use, and quick!!! No complaints with the software, however, the download contains the TROVI SEARCH ADD ON which is a known malware virus that will hijack your search engine and will be difficult to remove or disable. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS PROGRAM FROM CNET!

    Cons

    BEWARE of the advertisement TROVI SEARCH that accompanies this program as it will infect and hijack your computer as a search provider malware which will be difficult to remove it from your computer!

    Summary

    CNET should not allow TROVI SEARCH to accompany this download since it is a known problem. DO NOT DOWNLOAD PDF24 from CNET until they remove the TROVI SEARCH add on from this download!! You can download this program from other sites without these add on advertisements and particularly without this malware TROVI VIRUS!

    "CNET downloader"

    December 5, 2013  |   By PDF24

    Version: PDF24 Creator 6.0.1

    Pros

    PDF24 installer is free of viruses and adware or other co-bundled software.

    Cons

    CNET downloader bundles PF24 setup and installs other software. Click the direct download link (the link below the CNET download link) to get the adware free PDF24 setup directly.

    Summary

    Be careful when using the CNET downloader. Choose the direct download link to not get any other co-bundled software as mentioned above in the review of zeb1934.

    The direct download link is below the large green download link. Click that small link to get the PDF24 installer directly.

    "Disasterous Bloatware!!!"

    November 21, 2013  |   By zeb1934

    Version: PDF24 Creator 6.0.1

    Pros

    Stay Away!!!

    Cons

    Loads malware that not only is impossible to get rid, it did something to my restore file to 2012 so now I may have to spend much time re-doing year and half of updates.

    CNET needs to take this software OUT OF LINE!!!

    "Good for what it says it will do..."

    April 18, 2013  |   By petersykes58

    Version: PDF24 Creator 5.4

    Pros

    Performs according to the publisher's description, and it's free.

    Cons

    Took a while to work out how to re-order, add and delete pages.

    Summary

    I am a bit confused as to why some reviewers are so hard on this program. Its main editing feature is being able to add, delete and re-order pages - something I hadn't been able to find in any other free editor. The publisher does not claim it is a 'full-featured' editor. In addition, it works as well as any other creator that utilises the print function. I recommend using it in conjunction with other free PDF editors for those looking for a wide range of editing features. For mine, this is exactly what I needed.

    "Worked just fine"

    February 25, 2013  |   By wcmwcmcnet

    Version: PDF24 Creator 5.3

    Pros

    I just wanted to add a cover page to an existing pdf and this did the job

    Cons

    Loaded a fax program/link I didn't want - without permission. Not a big deal, but annoying

    Summary

    Good for a simple tack

    "False PDF creator. Only prints an image."

    October 28, 2012  |   By SaintlyMic

    Version: PDF24 Creator 4.9

    Pros

    No pros.
    Waste of my time.

    Cons

    I am so sick and tired of hearing the PDF creation scam!
    All this program does is CONVERT a document into a PDF using the print command.
    A true PDF CREATOR is a program where you can write the text, insert bookmarks, headers, footers, page numbers, security, etc, and then save that document as a COMPLETE PDF.
    Programs which "create" PDFs using the print command only create an IMAGE of a document, but not a true full featured PDF.

    "I can confirm....this certainly does not edit text."

    October 12, 2012  |   By Xs-N-Os

    Version: PDF24 Creator 4.9

    Pros

    This software will scour the dirty dishes in your sink and leave your teeth gleaming white.

    Cons

    It does not work as advertised.

    Summary

    I can confirm....this certainly does not edit text. I have no use for another pdf creator with fewer features than the rest.

    "Doesn't do what it claims."

    September 23, 2012  |   By Jeramee

    Version: PDF24 Creator 4.9

    Pros

    I didn't waste that much time figuring out that this program doesn't actually edit pdf files.

    Cons

    Doesn't edit PDf file, which it says it does.

    Summary

    Wast of time.

    "Works! Makes it easy to manipulate pdfs!"

    July 11, 2012  |   By mjhorwitz

    Version: PDF24 Creator 4.6

    Pros

    Free! Works! Easy! Lets me combine files, remove or rearrange pages, view, print, email and save pdfs.

    Cons

    Rotation tools don't always save as viewed. Desktop lauout isn't the most modern or space efficient

    Summary

    Huge benefits, no cost, trivial cons, easily one of my most used applications.
