If you need an easy way to create disk images, it's hard to imagine an option that's easier than PowerISO. This simple program makes it a breeze to create disk images in several different formats, open existing images, and burn disk images to CDs and DVDs.

PowerISO has a straightforward interface that's easy to navigate. A set of clearly marked buttons across the top make the program's main features easily accessible. It took us just a few seconds to navigate to a handful of files we wanted to include and then save them as an ISO file, though the program also gave us the option of DAA and BIN files. PowerISO also has options for mounting and compressing existing disk images, as well as burning disk images to disks. A built-in Help file is brief but well-written. There's a configuration menu from which to select options for virtual drives and audio formats. PowerISO doesn't overwhelm with its features -- its capabilities are fairly basic -- but it gets high marks for being easy to use and providing disk image tools that meet the needs of users at all levels.

The trial version of PowerISO limits users to creating disk images of 300M or less. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PowerISO 5.4.

    "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!
