Hi Robynb9, :)
Hope my previous post did not come across as aggressive or offensive towards you.

POSTED in the interest of other learners and newbies ...!
I get so annoyed with downloads that are sometimes loaded with adware and worse, all in the name of making a dollar at any cost. Several bad experiences in the past have cost me money and down time to rid my work PCs of junk.

I sent an email to "" author/developer of "PDF Creator" about their VirusTotal score of 5/48 (rather bad by my standard) -- assuming that maybe their software was being hijacked by scum-bags.

Unfortunately "PDF Creator" is a generic name used by several authors/developers ... and surprisingly I have received reply.

Note   Note
Copy of email from ""...
Unfortunately, this is what VirusTotal calls "risks". This is no threat, but they have set the scanning software in a way, that it also reports something that is called potentially unwanted, which includes any kind of advertisement. But while there is a huge difference between advertisements and risks, VirusTotal is not willing to clarify this to their users. We can assure you that PDFCreator does not contain anything harmful or risky. I hope the explanation above makes sense.
Kind regards,

If their product is so good ... charge for it

Recently I discovered that VirusTotal "rating" (ie, bad/good) is the result of users who bother to sign up to VirusTotal + lodge a comment. One recent download check returned a score of 4/46 and an unbelievable rating of 0/18. On further investigation 16 of the "goods" were all posted within 1 hour of each other over two days. Coincidence, I think not.

VirusTotal is an excellent and free online service, used in conjunction with my desktop AV and anti-malware, for good measure.

I use Nitro Reader - it's a free reader from Nitro PDF. It includes a PDF print driver and I tested printing eMail with picrures - it worked.

The PDFCreator tool from here...
Download PDFCreator 1.7.2 -
...does offer one extra junk install - but it also offers PDF related stuff in the normal install that I uncheck. I no longer suggest that people install it because of this junk. I use it because it creates the best/smallest/sharpest* PDF when images are involved. For those that I support, I install any updates to PDFCreator for them (to avoid the junk).

I tested PDFCreator by installing PostBox, PDFCreator and Sumatra PDF Reader into a Virtual Machine.... then I sent myself a test e-mail with an image in it. PDFCreator included the image just fine.

*It has been a while since I tested Nitro PDF, maybe it has improved. In my last tests of these types of programs, the resulting PDFs varied considerably in file size when printing the same image laden document.

There is another feature that I use in PDFCreator that some of the other apps do not have. I can setup batch printing that lets me automatically save lots of files as PDFs. I tested this in PostBox and it works. I could select every e-mail in a given folder and tell it to print. The end result was a PDF for each e-mail. (Each e-mail had an image and the image printed to the PDF for that e-mail.)

Give Nitro a try as Slartybart suggested. If it does not work out for you, I'll detail how to safely install PDFCreator... if you want.

How do I set my email client to delete emails from MailWasher Pro?
Hi. I don't know how many people on this forum use a software program called Mailwasher Pro. I use it because I can preview all the emails that are on my server before sending them to my Windows Live Mail. Once Windows Live Mail is opened and the emails come into it, the emails are deleted...
