    For those complaining about ad-ware junk bundled with the installer package: - yes, as a user I agree that this is too much and I do not like the trend of including these - the online installer contains misleading text and buttons Before installing anything: - install a good anti-virus (av) software that blocks potentially unwanted programs (pup) While installing Camstudio - first click Next, then click Decline as many times it appears as an option - review installed files in program dir, delete all junk To avoid such accidents with these kind of "bundles": - install a good anti-virus (av) software that blocks potentially unwanted programs (pup) - install a good application-level firewall / hips that gives you control - optionally use an uninstaller and create a snapshot with it before and after installing - review installed files in program dir and elsewhere - review services if the system configuration has changed - review registry changes - remove anything unwanted

    CamStudio_2.7 r316 = Clean CamStudio_2.7.2 r326 = Contain [InstallCore] Malwarebytes will wipe it off in no time. If you download from sourceforge.net you'll get CamStudio_2.7 r316 this one clean.

    This is great software! BE AWARE, there are some evil little pricks out there distributing garbage under the camstudio name! Only get your installer from here on sourceforge!

    Not the best out there. But not bad either. Not sure what Installer you folks were using or where you got it from but I saw nothing unusual in the Installer I got from Sourceforge. Plus, knowing the installer system they use, "Inno Setup" and how it's configured etc, they have only added one page to the and to explain what has been done with Cam Studio etc. Get over the bad reviews already.

    The CamStudio_2.7_r316_setup.exe file from Sourceforge is OK. You only see the GNU license in the installer. If you see any other agreements back out of it. The latest version (linked from the website) has all the garbage.
