Has not been meaningfully updated in a year. Relies on outdated and buggy SPTD layer that has not been updated for windows 7 in four years. New Windows 7 Updates now render it completely nonfunctional. Now installs crapware. Still does not support virtual burner. The developers wasted effort on an audio cd ripper and sound file converter. Now that deamon tools. Protected cds/dvds are dead so use a better ripping software.

Review by loster on Jan 13, 2018 Version: 2.0.3.9902 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 3/10




The fact that it uinundates you with crapware during install and then INVISIBLY installs more crapware without asking is beyond maddening. Uninstall program does not work. Forced to manually remove this pile of junk from my system. Avoid at all costs. I despise software that does backhanded things like this.

Review by cincyreds on Jan 3, 2015 Version: 2.0.3.6951 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10




I deleted the program as soon as I saw the crapware that came with it. I used the program a long time ago and it was OK but the version with Smart File Advisor was too much. Of course that part didn't uninstall. I used the directions here to uninstall it but some of the registry keys didn't appear on my system. I deleted what I found and so far it appears I don't still have the crapware. I tried an unknown file type and it Smart File Advisor didn't appear.

Review by King Ghidora on Dec 7, 2014 Version: 1.9.5 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10




Here's how to remove Smart File Advisor crapware which you are forced to install:

First, remove these registry entries (shown as a .reg file):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\sfa_checksum]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\!sfa]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Unknown]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Unknown]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\sfa_checksum]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\!sfa]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"Smart File Advisor"=""

Second, delete these folders (only one will exist, depending on version of Windows):

C:\Program Files\Smart File Advisor
C:\Program Files (x86)\Smart File Advisor

Yes, I know the "run" registry value remains. .reg files don't allow removing specific data values of registry keys.


Review by fredthompson on Jan 21, 2014 Version: 5.8.3.0 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




Stay away from this *new* version. No really an update, but only a way to install shit on your PC.
