    The installation is clean. However, it has a splash screen (with 'Special Offers' at the top...) that users can accept or decline. After 3 of those, it then goes on to the actual program. I assume those special offers is the malware everyone here is so upset over, but that's what you get when you blindly click accept to everything you see. So just hit DECLINE, and you're golden. It's simple really. How so many others can't do that is beyond me...

    I wonder where everyone else is getting the malware reports from. I downloaded both the software exe file and the codec from sourceforge (please note) and scanned both with MalawareBytes current version. No malware of any kind was detected in the exe or codec surprisingly despite previous reports here, nor did it install any unwanted software/adware or re-direct my browser as a result of installation. I also ran AVG on the installtion files and my system, no malware or other threats are reported. I am running Vista 64 bit. I then installed the software and ran a basic test to see if I could record something and it did work as expected. I'll report more fully when I get a chance to really test the features of the software.

    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.
