    "Poking their finger in eye of long time supporters"

    May 20, 2012  |   By mikewardinsa


    It used to be my ISO tool of choice...........


    The latest version dictates to me what it DECIDES will be my safe search option by forcing the install of AVG Safe Search support WITHOUT the option for me to choose.


    Truly unacceptable behavior for a software vendor, and deeply disappointing. Guess its time to laugh off the $29,95 I spent and go back to tools such ISOBuster. AVOID this version at all costs, and go for something like MAGICISO or ISOBUSTER.

    This is a susequent update to my "Poking their finger in eye of long time supporters" review. After writing to PowerISO support the issue with the "forced" AVG secure browsing install was quickly resolved when they provided me with the following URL: http://www.poweriso.com/PowerISO5-Pure.exe, where I was able to obtain the "pure" version of PowerISO, which is as pure as they claim, and to boot, less than HALF the size of the AVG bundled version.

    Needless to say this prompt and honest response has restored my faith in them and they will revert to my ISO tool of choice. Well done PowerISO. Thanks

    WARNING!!! The "PURE" version triggers a warning from my AV software, whereas the non-PURE version doesn't. I'm not saying the non-PURE version is any better though. Other posters say the non-PURE version is bad, and my AV software says the PURE version is bad. Which makes a strong case to stay away.
