If the developer of this application has been struggling to gain some money through forcing the installation of third party software, could you tell me why these third parties are paying him dollars for the FREE installation of their software? What is else than spying and stealing your data.
From this point of view there are three categories of software developers: the GOOD, the BAD and the CORRUPTED. The good becomes corrupted when he installs third party bad and unwanted software.

Imo one of the best around.
I'm not getting any issue with the AVG toolbar: I just unchecked the option and the install was clean, didn't get any unwanted toolbar.

Version 9.4.0.1570
----------------------
I have rated this software at 5 stars in the past. Its still good software but the developer is now including crapware. There is a paid version without the crapware but at USD29 it is just too expensive. USD15 would be a fair price.

I have uninstalled Bullzip and am returning to doPDF. I might even purchase a copy of NovaPDF Light.

FOLLOW UP: I have since spoken to the developer and he was responsive to this issue. He has apparently made the AGV Toolbar an optional install. However, after my initial experience I simply do not trust the process so will remain with doPDF.

This IS a real issue; developers deserve to make something for all their efforts (unless they choose open source). I don't mind paying for good software, and Bulzip is/was good software. However the $29 "Professional" version is simply too expensive for what it is. doPDF has paid versions (novaPDF) and I would consider these if the current situation with doPDF changes.

Developers ought to look at other alternatives to monitorising their software; crapware is a very quick way to loose users.

AVG sponsors the free download with an optional offering. Fine. Why not?

What is not acceptable is that the AVG product is installed even when it has been refused (2 boxes unchecked) during Bullzip PDF Printer 9.4.0.1570 install !

I unchecked, I refused, I said NO. Yet AVG was installed.
I removed AVG from Windows, it removed files, but left garbage including
Legacy keys in Registry. Took me half an hour to get all things neat.

CRAPS. Yes, a product can be sponsored, but the user must be respected. This is a total shame. Bullzip over here, I'll return to past alternatives.

Unfortunately this is not an update neither a new release. The purpose of this version is to force the installation of a third party software on your PC. Even if you say NO to the installation of the spying software offer it is installed!
In conclusion, choose another PDF software which respect you and your PC and avoid data thieves. Unfortunately several software developers are specialized in issuing new release every other day in the purpose of gaining few dollars through forcing the installation of third party spying software.

Still the best pdf printer.

Green Cloud is ok but it lacks the ability to choose the size and quality of your pdf which is paramount when dealing with larger ones.

Simply the best PDF printer available (and I've tried most over the years). I give very few products a five star rating so it shows my support for this one.

Use it in conjunction with Sumatra PDF viewer.

Never heard of this program until I saw it on here. Downloaded & installed, I've not had chance to use in in earnest but looking at the other reviewers 5 star rating I think it will remain on this PC.

5 stars so as not to mess the system up.

Solid program to create PDFs. - highly recommended.
Like many similar tools, Bullzip uses Ghostscript to create PDF or image files. But unlike the others this program has a clear interface while still retaining advanced options.

Hidden gem. Prefer it over CutePDF Writer for options.
