Editors' Review

This muscular disc-imaging utility is not kidding around (though we thought the demo might be). PowerISO lets you mount virtual drives, create bootable discs, and generate CD and floppy images. It supports a huge number of image formats, including standard ISO and IMG files as well as files created by almost all popular disc-burning programs such as Nero, CloneCD, and Alcohol120%.

Our one major caveat is that the trial version doesn't let you create images larger than 300MB (most CDs hold 700MB), making it much harder to fully test the product. On the other hand, the trial period is unlimited, so some users may actually prefer this arrangement. Trial restrictions aside, we think PowerISO makes a good pick for intermediate to advanced users.

    "MALWARE MALWARE MALWARE MALWARE"

    October 19, 2014   |   By PowerISO=Malware!!

    Version: PowerISO 6.0

    Pros

    Great if you like Malware
    Great if you like having your browser hijacked
    Great if you have endless hours to spend removing hard to find malware

    Cons

    Malware is automatically installed unbeknown to you. ANd after unistalling PowerIso it remains.. Its then very hard to track down all the malware and remove it.

    It changed my browser home to some rubbish search engine.

    Also, Unless you pay the hefty 29.99 (malware still comes with the payed version - great thinking PowerISO!!) you are limited to making images of upto 300mb. Well isn't that great!

    Summary

    Garbage. I cant believe its acceptable to install unwanted crap on my computer without giving me an option to either not install it or to uninstall it afterwards. What kind of a business are you guys running?? its a joke.

    I hope PowerISO goes bankrupt!
