When installing PDFCreator I told it not to install what I thought was the Yahoo! Toolbar. However, when I launched my internet browser I noticed a new toolbar appeared. So I uninstalled PDFCreator and the PDFforge Toolbar (as it’s called here) from Windows’ Set Program Access and Defaults.
On the screen I thought was for a Yahoo! Toolbar, I find out its actually for setting up Yahoo! as my default search engine, yet why put the image of a toolbar on that page? Not only that but the title of that screen says PDFCreator Browser Add On, but not only that it specifically says, “Install the PDFCreator Browser Add On and” then some bullet points and a toolbar image followed by “Set Yahoo! as my default search engine and notify me of changes.”
Therefore, I assume that it will install the toolbar and set Yahoo! as the default search engine. But then below that it says “IMPORTANT: If you don’t want to install the PDFCreator Browser Add On, then please unselect it on the next screen.” But why even mention it or give it the name of that screen if we have to select it on the next screen.
I like PDFCreator for creating PDFs from other programs, but I think I’ll be on the lookout for a replacement after this. And it should go without saying when you install programs always do the Advanced Install because they will often sneak things in by default and don’t blindly click next.
