"The installer contains ADWARE and SPYWARE. "

Installer contains adware and spyware. People installing this download must be careful not to lick on the adware installation. The adware pops up as if it is a "next" tab in teh installer, but you can safely close the adware installer and see the actual pdfcreator installation still in progress beneath that adware box (it includes check boxes for changing your homepage settings in your browser).

It also wants to install a pdf add-on tool that takes 20 minutes to download and is spyware! you have to ctrl+shift+esc and force-close the installer with a right-click and "end process tree".

Other than that, the converter itself works fine.

It's the installer bloated with spyware and adware that is bad.

Pros
  • free, easy to use
Cons
  • GET RID of teh ADWARE installer in the installation program.
