Negative Comment by CopyTrans
about CutePDF Writer and doPDF Jan 2014

This the most rated one on alternativeto but definitely the one I prefer. I just tried the install now and by default it suggest to add the ask toolbar and also to install extra software from other players.

Once the install is complete you can still not use it because you need to install a PDF converter. That's too much of a hassle and I ended up uninstalling it and going for doPDF7 which doesn't come with any extra unwanted so far.

Works Great, needs to lose the bundled software

Comment by TheGooch
about CutePDF Writer May 2013

You have to be careful when you install this application, as it continues to install crapware by default( Ask.com, McAfee ) unless you uncheck it at installation.

Once you get past that landmine, this application installs as a printer driver and integrates smoothly with other applications. I like the PDF printer model better than the ones where you say print to application, then it opens the application and from there you save as PDF. Too much work!
