Editors' Review

It's not much to look at, but this program quickly and easily helps users convert files into PDF format, and comes at no cost.

PDFCreator has a very basic interface that won't win it any beauty contests. However, by keeping the visuals to a minimum, users will be able to quickly and easily navigate the program and get right to the task at hand. PDFCreator appears as a small, white, rectangular box with a thin strip of command icons along the top. Here you can print, look at options, navigate your files, and open new files. Below the strip is an open space that displays your selected file's name, size, and status.

After selecting a file for conversion, users are taken to another simple screen. This one asks users to create a file name, creation date, author, keyword and subject for the soon-to-be-created PDF. At the bottom of the screen are commands for saving the PDF or emailing it. The email option instantly adds the PDF as an attachment in your Outlook email.

We were impressed with the speed and ease we converted our files to PDF with PDFCreator. There may be more flashy conversion programs available, or ones that try to do more than this one, but for those just looking for an inexpensive and simple PDF converter, this one fits the bill nicely.

    "Trust Everyone Else - Installs Malicious Malware!!!"

    June 03, 2014   |   By doggymcnuggets2

    Version: PDFCreator 1.7.3

    Pros

    I've used this program for years and have always found it to performs the simple task of printing to pdf without fuss or muss. Simple & streamlined in performing the basic tasks it's designed to do.

    Cons

    It secretly installs very malicious malware. During the install there were no requests for permission to install the malware, but once it was there it was very aggressive and devious. Attempts to uninstall the malware simply caused it to install in a new location with a different name. Very infuriating and nefarious. What a shame, this used to be a useful and effective program. Now it's just a way to get your computer hijacked.

    Summary

    Avoid PDFCreator like the plague and wish rainy days and head lice upon the shameless shysters at pdfforge.org who spread their evil one download at a time
