Publisher's Description

PowerISO is a powerful image processing and file compression tool, which allows you to create, extract, compress, edit and convert ISO/BIN image files, and mount these files with internal virtual drive. Most of all, the compressed files can be used directly without decompressing. Supports almost all CD/DVD-ROM image file formats (ISO, BIN, NRG, DAA, etc).

Stay away from this horrible, sneaky and piece of crap software as it installs several unwanted, undesirable and irritating junk on your PC.
I wrote this despicable company and asked them why they include all the sneaky and crappy junk and of course I never heard from them.
Do yourself a favor and never touch this GARBAGE program.
A big shame on PowerISO. They deserve to go to HELL.

If you want Searchbars and opencandy go ahead and install this program, even if you buy it and pay good money your computer will get "infected" with this crap.

You can skip searchbar install, but not opencandy, that is installed without telling you anything about it, dodgy imho.

This program was one of the best, but the extra "goodies" you get with it today has ruin it imo.

I'll repeat what I wrote earlier.
Enough is enough.
I paid good money for this tool, why do I have to get spammed with all kind of crap from your installer, first the "smileybar" then "Searchbar" from Conduite, and now it's infected with opencandy too, this is really bad behaviour, shame on you.
Stop putting crapware in your installer, or at least make an installer without it for us who has BOUGHT you program.

1star is what you get, if I could give you 0star I would do that, I did pay for this program, so I take it as an insult that you silently installs crapware on my computer, I will no longer recommend your tool to anyone.

I like this very useful and good program, one of the best.
Regarding the AVG Toolbar, on the second window, after agreeing this program's license, there is an option to uncheck this toolbar installation so it will not be installed. Pay attention.

In version 5.3 the author appears to have mended his ways and given users the ability opt out of AVG toolbar. Can't tell yet if the new version is otherwise booby trapped but I still think this software is better than the competition, other than the AVG caveat. (Minus two stars for AVG and not telling users about the opt out provision in the new change log)

No surprise here. Version 5.2 also has the AVG Search crap. Why do companies do this? I bought PowerISO awhile ago and I like the program but now I have to decide whether to keep using it. I don't trust them anymore. And any chance that I might switch to the AVG virus protection is not going to happen ever. You would think a security company like AVG would be the last one that would want to put unrequested mystery programs on your computer. Just another low life company that will do anything for the almighty search dollar.

MALWARE, MALWARE, MALWARE.

Installation AVG craps without permission is unacceptable.

Nighted

Nighted reviewed v5.1 on May 2, 2012

5.1 installs AVG toolbar into Firefox. Also it sets your homepage and default search engine to some AVG crap.

There is no mention of this in the installer and no way to prevent it from being installed other than avoiding this PowerISO installer altogether.

Not happy about this shady practice.

the proprietary issue is a complete non-issue, just select the type of CD/DVD image you want (iso) at rip time... so I dont get that complaint.. they are definitely not trying to tie you into anything, the daa is nice if you want on the fly compression, if you don't want to use it, no problem , one click at rip time... jeez

this program is great:
- gets continuous updates
- works in win7 since pre beta 1, nobody else did
- worked in vista from beta 1.. nobody else did
- works in 64 and 32 with same install, I had tons of problems with other ISO apps
- is very small / resource light, but powerful
- has an easy to use, intuitive interface
- doesn't use an add on for virtualization, or need a plugin for anything in basic use
- I've never had a single problem with it

I used ultraISO, daemon, just about all the ones mentioned here and elsewhere.. the closest one is UltraISO, but PowerISO wins by a nose because Ive had some UltraISO problems in the past... you notice none of the bad mouth reviewers here said anything about PowerISO breaking, right? that's cause it doesn't ever that I've ever seen
