Freemake Video Converter v3.1.2
FreeMake Video Converter does provide a useful service by compressing and converting videos to a multitude of file types and compressions with ease, even allowing you to specify the size limit you would like your converted video to fit into. The problem is, it comes with a malware search bar that installs and binds itself to EVERY web browser on the host system, even when you explicitly specify NOT to install such a search bar. It also changes your default search engine and home page to the questionable search portal (possibly changes more, havent found what other badness this malicious software does). Disabling or uninstalling the search bar does not function (it just comes back as if it was never disabled), and furthermore, the data files for the search bar program do not allow you to delete them manually (giving an error when attempting to do so). Finally, this program not only forced a restart of the computer after being installed (got to get that cash cow search bar installed ASAP, to hell with asking permission to reboot) but also slowed down a Core i5 computer to MOLASSES for no apparent reason whatsoever (aside perhaps from probably enforcing the search bar system service binding that prevents the search bar from ever being removed.) I highly recommend you turn to open source softwares like VLC or VirtualDub to compress/convert video and STAY AWAY from ANY software that claims to be free yet has no apparent advertising or sales model on their host website (they have to make money with this program somehow, and this crooked search bar is exactly how they do just this.)
Excellent piece of FREE Software. I had been looking for a free easy to use video converter for along time. This is exactly what I wanted. A very pretty interface and hassle free program. Highly recommended! Still testing and reviewing but this is a great start from FREEMAKE! Well Done!
