"Might as well be a virus"

October 31, 2009  |  By sdpetersen

 |  Version: SID Video Cutter & Splitter 1.8

Pros

It installs well.

Cons

It doesn't work and it requires that you install RelevantKnowledge, some 3rd party survey program.

Summary

You must agree to RelevantKnowledge's terms to install, but what they don't tell you is that when you uninstall SID Video Cutter & Splitter, RK doesn't uninstall and when you try to uninstall RK it crashes leaving all kinds of Registry Errors. Oh, yeah, and it clears your old System Restore Points so you cannot recover that way. Hmm, seems eerily like a virus to me.

"CNET's reputation goes downhill by promoting this app"

October 06, 2009  |  By GeoNOregon

 |  Version: SID Video Cutter & Splitter 1.8

Pros

The application had the POTENTIAL to be a great app, unfortunately, it required me to install something called 'System Guard' before it could complete a simple split in video file.

Cons

Installs "RelevantKnowledge" without the user's consent or knowledge, then requires installation of "System Guard", (an app from a completely different company), before it will work.

Summary

I downloaded this app as FREE software. It wasn't until I saw it on CNet that I saw a price. If I had paid $15.00 for this app, I would be contacting the Texas Attorney Gen, (location of the company), and my AG in Oregon about fraud and deceptive practices. It's also worth looking into federal RICO charges for conspiracy to commit identity theft.

"Unwanted program (trojan?) piggybacks on installation"

August 31, 2009  |  By floatingweed

 |  Version: SID Video Cutter & Splitter 1.8

Pros

see summary

Cons

see summary

Summary

A program called "RelevantKnowledge" installed itself along with the installation of the "Video Cutter and Splitter Indepth" program. The "RelevantKnowledge" program shows up as an icon on the system tray and a window pops up asking if one wants to participate (with millions others) in having one's web activity tracked. Yeah, just what I've been hoping and waiting for, someone to track my activity on the web so I can share and see the combined results of millions of others being tracked. A quick web search indicated other people had problems with the "RelevantKnowledge" program being installed covertly piggybacked on various trialware or shareware problems. CNET should not allow this and it seems to be an error to assure people that this program install spyware free.
