Will you tell me that you deleted this one too? I know informing people about what is basically Spyware and Adware is against the rules, but the consumer should at least know about it.
I cannot download this zipped exe file, as my security software identifies it as a trojan and quarantines it. I have used Bullzip in the past on other computers with excellent results, but i believe it is time to look elswhere. During installation I got operation could not be compleated error 0Z Windows cannot locate a suitable printer driver. I did not get a single pdf created.
Reinstalled twice just to be sure. Never did work. An error message comes up related to ghost script. Please listen to the latest reviews - this previously good product is now a dud.
When printing to pdf, I get an error. Unable to locate Ghostsrcipt installation. Comes with it's own virus. Crashes the software you are using every time you try to use it.
Disappointing that cnet endorsed this program. Did Bullzip pay for the privilege? Otherwise, I can't imagine why any tech oriented person would recommend this program. I'm surprised and disappointed that cnet's only installation software tried to get me to install a bunch of crap malware and when i wouldnt i didnt even get the software i originally wanted.
