Reviewing 2.3.0 (Mar 10, 2016)
Full of spywares, bundled with an unsolicited 30mb soft that I don't need and the worst of all is that the pdfs that creates have watermark, a piece of junk.
Reviewing 2.1.1 (May 29, 2015)
Sorry! I meant version 2.1.1, not 2.2.1 in my previous review.
Reviewing 2.1.0 (May 28, 2015)
PDFCreator is now at version 2.2.1. It has abandoned its old ways and does not add unwanted stuff anymore. At least in the "expert installation" mode. In the past even expert installation needed a lot of attention to avoid this "extra" stuff, for it was inconspicuous.
Now the only optional addition is the "Images to PDF" program, which is clearly shown. I even chose to install it.
Now I can give it five stars.
Reviewing 1.7.0 (Jun 24, 2013)
Hijacked Chrome, Firefox, and IE. Changed homepage to MSN. Would reset homepage to google and as soon as browser was reopened it switched homepage to MSN again.
It took hours to track down because I installed other software and lots of updates in the last few days, but uninstalled PDF Creator and it went away. Re-installed and it came back. Uninstalled and it went away again.
Never got the toolbar that others have noted might be installed. Just switching the homepage.
Reviewing 1.7.0 (Apr 20, 2013)
The best among PDF printers that I have tested. It never distorted a page, even in cases where other PDF printers (including some non-free ones) failed to do a good job.
Beware however, to use custom installation and to choose what to install as it comes with optional stuff that many people do not need, including offers from advertisers that are irrelevant for its task.
The PDF Architect program that comes with it, and which is also freeware and developed by the same developer, may or may not be useful for you. Up to the recent version, there was no option to customize its installation, but this has been fixed in version 1.7, and you may now choose not to install it, or as I chose - to install it but with no plugins that integrate it with other programs.
