PSPad is a universal freeware editor. There is no complex install process; the program is ready to work immediately, without requiring customization. It supports many file types and languages, with syntax highlighting. There are macros, clip files and templates to automate repetitive activities. An integrated HEX Editor, Project support, FTP Client, Macro Recorder, File Search/Replace, Code Explorer, code page conversion, are just some of the many possibilities that PSPad can offer you.

Sorry ROY, but you lie.
There is NO SILENT install in case you use as source of your installer PSPad page. If you download PSPad from any software server, they wrap PSpad installer into they own downloader. In this case I can't be responsible of it.

The new installer includes KNOWN MALWARE (specifically Conduit) that SILENTLY INSTALLS even if you choose "No" to the install options. I tracked this on a firewall with content filtering that blocks known malware purveyors. You will get a popup that says the installer is unable to download content and an option to continue. If you continue, the editor itself installs.
This app and author should be blacklisted until the malware is removed from the install.
ONE star for knowingly infecting users with malware.

From author's page you can update/upgrade to - PSPad editor 4.5.8 (2453).

This is still an excellent editor, but unfortunately it doesn't come anywhere near Notepad++. My main problem is that it is STILL designed as a coder's editor with monospaced font capability only. I write code in Notepad++ using Verdana 9. If you need monospaced fonts to line stuff up, fine, allow that as an option - don't force it on your users. Still, 5 stars for being free and having lots of features.

so we are rating the package/installer or the application itself.
Go to their site and get the .cab file insteat, open it with 7zip and get the (portable) content out and you have it free of "spyware" as you call it.
Enjoy this free, wonderful, software!
