1.0 out of 5 stars Beware, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PDF Converter Professional 8 (PC) (CD-ROM)
The program itself does a great job with basic PDF creation/conversion. Complex documents can lead to some intersting results when converting to MS word, for instance, but that it can even do it at all is impressive. My problem with this software is that it also loads another application onto your computer (without giving you the option) called Common Software Manager. Now this has been causing all kinds of problems with my work flow. It loads not one, but two occurrences of its icon onto the taskbar and continually pops up when I'm trying to manage other tasks and downloads; as if it has suddenly become the rightful default program manager of my PC. It is unwanted and uses valuable recources. I have browsed the internet and found it to be a common problem amongst users of Nuance software. There seems to be no easy way of removing it either. I believe it can be disabled, but this is a complicated process. Alarmingly, certain forums describe it as an easlity attacked door to your system for spyware and viruses etc. I will now have to pay for our IT expert to completely remove all of this software from our network. AVOID.
