Original review posted by user Jul 11, 2016
I use a number of IObit products, the Pro versions. I also have used the free version of IObit Driver Booster which blindsided me tonight. I downloaded the latest version of IObit Driver Booster Free and when I went to install it it ran iFun Video Converter installation NOT Driver Booster. I thought I had gone to a wrong website and that this was an error. I had not gone to a bad website nor was it a mistake. When I went back to IObit I found a reference to iFun Video Converter down near the bottom of the homepage of IObit.
It gave me NO way to close the window screen (see attached jpg file). No red X to close with, choosing Close window when right clicking on the taskbar icon would not work at all, only going into TaskManager closed the screen. In fact I am going to stay up and uninstall the products tonight.
Their sneaky way of trying to get iFun V.C. pushed out to the unsuspecting users of their products is unacceptable and unconscionable. I am uninstalling ALL IObit products in the morning and will never purchase them again. Such deceptive ways by them has now lost them a paying customer.
