"TROJAN HORSE FOR SNAP.DO"

November 12, 2012  |  By KSotra

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

It converted the MOV to AVI, actually pretty well

Cons

It installed snap.do on my computer (without asking) and it then took me a day to get it all off. Was buried pretty deep in the system registry etc. It was eventually removed after I uninstalled Pazera and got rid of the download and the install exe

Summary

1. Like other reviewers I was disappointed that CNET carry this crap
2. I am even more disappointed that after the bad reviews they still carry it
3. I learnt to read the reviews and not just trust CNET
4. I learnt to remove snap.do which is a fairly nasty piece of malware
5. I wonder what a horrible, miserable life you must have, if you go to work each day and create this sort of crap. You must really hate yourself and the world

"Junkware, don't bother."

October 25, 2012  |  By subcriptions123

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

None that I can think of, it doesn't do what its meant to.

Cons

Took ages to convert my MOV files to AVI,, and when it finally finished only audio was left - it didn't convert any imagery. An annoying waste of my time. Thanks for nothing, CNET.

Summary

DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS RUBBISH.

"Malware - Don't install"

October 13, 2012  |  By smasonnc

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

Didn't get that far

Cons

I stopped the installation when, after unchecking all the boxes that would have allowed it to make changes I didn't want, I got yet another screen of information about what the program would do if I installed it.

Summary

I count on C-Net for expert guidance, so I'm a little surprised that they would allow this in one of their downloads. Can't trust anybody on the internet, not even C-Net.

"Borderline malware"

October 04, 2012  |  By piet2008

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

Nothing to recommend it.

Cons

I regard any program which does things to my system without telling me borderline malware. This as usual install Yahoo toobar and more.

Summary

Not worth the effort. CNET should screen programs before putting them up for download, otherwise they are party to it.

"this is MALWARE"

August 15, 2012  |  By stevensnell

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

it converted a video

Cons

Even if you uncheck the boxes to install additional software, this program installs 4 additional software programs on your pc. Every time you uninstall one, it pops up a browser window.

Summary

The fact that malware like this is hosted on cnet has broken my trust. I thought it was a safe website, I'm finished here.

"Roots Itself in System Volume Information Folder"

May 06, 2012  |  By OrthodoxDaily

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

The only reason why I gave this software 1/2 star is because there's nothing lower.

Cons

If you would like to know why I gave this software such a bad review is because it buries itself deep within your System Volume Information folder, which encompasses your computer's System Restore Points.

I've given my full explanation as a reply to a previous comment with @ad3elprz user. "Ctrl F" on keyboard and search "remove". You'll see his review and my comments under his.

"Does well what expensive programs do"

April 20, 2012  |  By drdoolittle2800

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

Downloaded from C-Net without a problem. Got a notice from my antivirus, scanned it, no problems. Installed nicely and allowed me to determine installation location. That's important to me.

Editing a large video project and had to transfer files between PC and Mac. Weird codecs made this almost impossible. Pazera Free handled conversions with ease, both Mac-to-PC and PC-to-Mac (PC couldn't read the mov files properly).

Recommend highly for any level of user. Easy for the nontechnical, yet offers great advanced conversions for both audio and video files. Seems to handle all codecs.

Cons

The interface could be a bit daunting for a first-time entry-level user. It's very straight forward if you're experienced. The "from-to" part is not real clear. Selecting parameters could be a bit more straightforward.

Summary

I'd recommend this highly for advanced users who want an all-in-one FREE (!) converter. I didn't check out the help files so I can't really say how this would be for a rookie - except that if you can figure out how to tell it where the file is located and where you want it saved, then you're good to go!

"stay away from this"

April 11, 2012  |  By ao266

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

you can use the search engine to find a removal method.

Cons

Installs an unwanted search toolbar and changes your home page.

Summary

I can't believe cnet would host malware.

"Changed home page and added search tabq"

March 19, 2012  |  By dwabrams

 |  Version: Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter 1.5

Pros

It did 3gp file conversions as promised. But given the installation issues noted below, I no longer trust the software developer and I uninstalled the program after one use.

Cons

Even though I declined the options offered during installation, the installation program changed my Firefox home page to Yahoo.com and added a search tab tailored to Yahoo.

Summary

Installed unwanted components in Firefox without permission or notification. I can't trust it.
