It doesn't work in Vista and you only get the the DIVX Converter codec for 15 days.
Legitmately free or is it laced with malware?
This is the question of the day here. Anyone run a scan after installing?
It's not. Just read the EULA. If you don't like it, don't install it.I'll bite. Wish me luck, boys. If I don't come back it means my computer was obliterated by spyware/malware.
Yeah, that was the Pro version 5. But like I said above. It was clearly in the EULA and the user had a chance to say "No".
