It's a very good replacement for Windows DVD Maker but be very, very careful with the install. Pay very close attention to what it is trying to install. You want the program NOT the toolbar and search engine it wants to install. Do NOT agree to anything.
The installer prompts you to install incredibar, with the default options set to hijack the start page and search of multiple browsers. Even if you DO NOT choose to install incredibar, it installs the spyware program Sweet IM, which also hijacks your browsers' start page and search. The actual program is quite fantastic, and I would recommend it to everyone looking to make their own DVDs. It's just a shame the makers decided to bundle malicious software. PSA: Don't download the main installer (DVDStyler-2.3-win32.exe). Instead, click 'files' above, dvdstyler > 2.3 > DVDStylerPortable-2.3-win32.exe. The portable version doesn't have any spyware or anything else malicious.
MALWARE WARNING! Also BROWSER HIJACKER! I know this has been reviewed before, but it's worth stating again. I cannot speak for all install versions, but the one I had not only installed several versions of malware, but hijacked my browser. I had installed it, before, on am older computer, in 2014, and forgot this was one of those programs which took it upon itself to install "evil" programs on your computer. Oh, yes, NO OPTING OUT, either. At least other programs usually give you the fine print and button to opt out of their malware installation. A shame, really, because for a free program, this is quite good. I would have donated in a heartbeat to keep it going, but I would not consider it, with the malware install. The program itself could rate a 5, or at least a 4. I will give it a star for the program, but the malware takes away the other stars. This should never be allowed.
The software itself (DVDStyler) is very good. Simple, stable, functional. What more could you ask for? The installer comes with adware/spyware. Toolbars and browser hijacks. Make sure you read carefully when installing, don't accidentally agree to install anything but DVDStyler. They should remove this, and I would give it 4 stars instead of 2. Straight unacceptable, sorry.
