    "Can't give it 0 stars - installer modifies your browser"

    November 22, 2012  |   By Fireboss

    Pros

    Looks pretty,may do what it says

    Cons

    I found no intuitive way to edit an existing gif maybe I didn't look hard enough but when I clicked help and it opened my web browser I found that even though I deselected ever optional crapware install my web browser had a new toolbar it had also changed my default search engine. That caused me to uninstall it immediately. If a program hides anything from me on install it's gone because I never know what else it may be hiding.

    Summary

    The program may work but I cannot recommend anything that changes your system without permission. I DETEST the CNET Downloader. It is completely unnecessary software garbage and it keeps askingif I want crap ware installed. A software review and download site should know better. Unfortunately some program creators use it as the sole download source - even for updates - so I have to use it. In this case it further obfuscates the secret installation of system altering software. Shame on you Photoscape and Shame on CNET for facilitating such potentially destructive garbage on its site.
