Better than many free PDF creators out there, BullZip PDF Printer installs quickly and smoothly as a virtual printer, then gives you total control. This program converts a variety of file formats to PDF files. We hit a few bumps at the beginning, but ultimately, it proved to be a valuable file. Doro PDF Writer installs normally, but it looks like a printer to your system, so you access its options a bit differently, beginning with its basic printer properties in.

When we were ready, we pressed Create. Doro created and saved our document and also opened it inside our default PDF viewer, from which we could also save, print, and otherwise handle it normally, including selecting Print, choosing Doro, and resizing and altering the document. Doro also supports multiple interface languages. It's a great complement to PDF viewers that can't create documents, but it's also well worth having around even if you already have a full-featured PDF program.

Unless you have a special requirement like watermarks , clicking Print and using Doro PDF Writer is almost certainly going to be quicker than opening a big app. The site downloaded a zip file. I opened the zip file, scanned it for viruses, and then ran the executable. The product installed smoothly. It did not attempt to install any parasite programs. Then, to test it, using Chrome, I opened a news article about how Twitter tried again to censor tweets that embarrassed Hillary. Doro PDF appeared as one of the printers.

The steps were obvious to me, including designating where to store the file and setting the password. I was surprised how quickly and easily it worked. While typing the password, I hit two keys accidentally and it asked for the password again.

On the second try, I typed more slowly and it opened right up.

Solid PDF Creator

To my surprise, the PDF contained the article without any of the advertising garbage. Good show!

The password screen allows you to set two passwords, one for users, and a master for yourself. Setting the master password alone does not stop users from opening the file. You have to set the user password, too. The box could be a little more clear about that distinction, but that's not a big enough deal to ding them on the number of stars.

Full Five Stars. It installed easily. It did not try to install any other programs. And it works great. I'm very pleased with it. Reply to this review Read reply 1. Was this review helpful?

Does this application offer anything extra to that? Reply to this review Read replies 2. There is a great free utility, Unchecky, that prevents the installation of unwanted programs.

There are no options, and no manual. I wanted to save as PDF for my reader. It does not tell you where it is saved. I searched for the doc. But simple is good, which is why PDF tools that install themselves as print drivers may be our favorite of all.

Over half of the Fortune 500 rely on Nitro. You can too.

PDFCreator's optional server installation mode can act as a network printer, but we chose the standard installation, which includes some optional downloads such as Images2PDF and PDFArchitect, plus some sample files and our choice of language and Help files. We chose all the extras and opted to add the tool to context menus as well as the Print menu. If you can print a document, you can use this tool. The steps are the same, with a screen full of fields to let us easily add Title, Author, Keywords, and more.

You can also edit a document's Creation and Modify dates or instantly add the current date and time. Once you're finished, you can save, print, or e-mail your newly created PDF. PDFCreator also runs on terminal servers without problems. Was this review helpful? Software gives NOT the possibility to let the user choose what wants install on pc.

Also change the browser default page! So, SHIT software, be careful!! I deinstalled it at once It does a decent job of printing pdfs from webpages or documents on your computer. The included PDF Architect is too difficult to use.

Bing search and homepage are added to your browser without warning when you install even if the install is an update.

It does not do even minor other things, such as cutting extra pages. You have to use the included PDF Architect for that, which is difficult and time consuming if all you want to do is chop out blank pages or rearrange pages.

But at least you don't have to use Architect; you do have to use Bing search and homepage--at least until you go to the trouble of changing your homepage back to what you've set, removing Bing as a search engine, and readding ALL the search engines dictionary, thesaurus, foreign language, etc.

One of my readditions did not reappear. This MIGHT be somewhat--a little--possibly acceptable if you were given the option of not installing Bing, but you aren't.

It just appears. I certainly will not be updating PDF Creator again. Updated on Nov 25, Demote this by one star. Now I have to change the default pdf reader to Foxit which it was until Architrect hijacked it and perhaps uninstall Architect.

This free app is too costly. I've spent hours on this and have narrowed it down to an apparent flaw in PDFCreator. I now use a small and simple Firefox Addon Print pages to PDF 1.

Very Nice Bloat ware. Crappy new interface. Forces you to use their new pdf view which also has a terrible interface.

This used to be a great open source pdf printer now it is terrible.

I wish I would have read the other reviews before I downloaded!! I trust CNET, and assumed that with the high ratings it would be fine, but I have spent the last hour trying to recover my computer from the Malware this program installed! Do not download!

You get no PDF creation capabilities and a mountain of headache. Excellent Tool. It is completely. All CNET downloads are combined with other add-ons.
