Oh, one other thing, it does install the toolbar in all the web browsers installed in your computer, so if you are like me and only use one browser (just keeping the other as a backup) it is best to use "Should I Remove It?" to uninstall it for the other browsers.

I have found this toolbar useful in quickly converting documents from .doc to .pdf formats and vice versa. It is easy to use: just click the "doc to pdf" button, browse your files, click on the format you want to convert it to (there are at least 10 supported formats), and then it will send the document as a download. As far as I can find, there have been no ill effects on my computer, but let's see what the experts say!
