"Used to be great - now it requires malware installation"

October 24, 2014  |  By Daelda

 |  Version: Free PDF to JPG 1.0.0.7

Pros

Great for converting PDFs to JPGs. Does what it says it does.

Cons

Latest version requires that you install Astromenda Search onto your computer (there is NO Decline button). "Astromenda Search it's technically not a virus, but it does exhibit plenty of malicious traits, such as rootkit capabilities to hook deep into the operating system, browser hijacking, and in general just interfering with the user experience. The industry generally refers to it as a "PUP," or potentially unwanted program." When I go to the company website and try to download it from there, Chrome blocks it as a potentially malicious file. Not a good sign.

Summary

I do NOT advise installing the latest version! It has malware (Astromenda) with no way to Decline installing. When I go to the company website and try to download it from there, Chrome blocks it as a potentially malicious file.

"Very intrusive software"

October 24, 2014  |  By hickoryshirt

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.43

Pros

Sure it finds more drivers than most others,but at what cost?

Cons

This software is not worth the time it takes to download. It finds lots of drivers and downloads quite fast if you buy the paid version. However my experience is that many of those drivers are non Windows certified and do not work. Many times the software wants to re-download the driver over and over again! Plus if you try to roll those updates back to the originals you end up with devices with no drivers at all! What a mess. I had to restore to get my system working properly!! Plus all the emails they send are equally hard to stop. The option to unsubscribe link leads you no where. I finally had to email their company and complain mightily My advice is to stay away from this company.

Summary

Shame on Download.com for recommending this trash!

""nhtnlned by cnnlacting""

October 24, 2014

 |  Version: PDF OCR X Community Edition 2.0.8

Pros

It recognizes a lot of words. If we were judging this as a batting average of hits versus strikeouts, it would be the all-time baseball batting average leader. Unfortunately getting 2/3 or even 9/10 of the words right isn't good enough for OCR.

Cons

Can't recognize numbers, even in Times, which is considered to be among the most legible fonts in the world. Only crappily OCR's one page at a time.

Summary

Lame. This wasted time I couldn't afford to waste. Thanks for trying, but next time include in the description that this is a prototype that isn't road-ready.

"I cannot believe how well this works!"

October 24, 2014  |  By ben.reed.796

 |  Version: Talkatone free calls + texting 3.6

Pros

My God how far we have come in such a short time. To where a dead useless unless chained to a data plan "by law" phone can be a traveling land line that texts.

Pros wow where to start.

wifi is everywhere even more so in mcds starbucks and a million other places. Hell I have seen free wifi in bars lately. So unless you NEED to be 100% wireless and like me love the idea of 500 minutes for $8 bucks and being a slave to no one. Get this APP.

I was skeptical to and am extremely tech savvy. What made me try it? You can use 1 dollar to test it. Thats right a buck! If it doesnt work f it. But it did! This is life changing technology.

Cons

Big bro will crush it eventually. Also the ringer is awful?

Summary

Great option for anyone needing remote access.

October 24, 2014  |  By James leary

 |  Version: ToolWiz Mac Boost 1.6

Pros

None at all here.

Cons

After you download and install it than run the scan you have to purchase it for $39.99 for it to even fix a single issue !!

October 24, 2014  |  By bob3160

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2206

Cons

I'm still looking.

"Free becomes crippled"

October 24, 2014  |  By TxTom

 |  Version: Zulu DJ Software Free 3.35

Pros

It works fully for 14 days.

Cons

After 14 days, you have crippleware. NCH also likes to dump a lot of their other programs on your computer. Experienced this with their transcription program we bought. A VERY uncool practice.

Summary

While it might seem like a good idea to try it out, watch out for the un-desired extras NCH likes to include in their installers. I would steer FAR away from this carrot.

"Never Installed Due to Forced Malware"

October 24, 2014  |  By Kelderic

 |  Version: Free AVI to MP4 Converter 1.0

Pros

I have no idea, I wasn't able to install it.

Cons

It forces you to install other malware programs. There is no "Decline" option during the installation process.

Summary

It might be a useful program but you can't install it without installing malware in addition. I'm surprised that cnet would have this on their website.
