Update after checking more closely: 1. This program links itself to dozens of file extensions it has no business with (but for which other NCH Software programs exist to whose websites you will then be directed). 2. This program won't uninstall. The uninstaller doesn't work and can't work the way it is written. 3. Even if you kill all of the Voxal's running processes, two hidden processes will remain. I only found out when I used LockHunter to see why I couldn't delete Voxal.exe. Now why does 4. You're not being asked whether you want to install the microphone capture driver Definitely can't recommend letting this pest onto anyone's system.

This "cutting edge tool" has all the capabilities you need for... a cheap party trick. It installs drivers on your system to intercept audio from microphones and its uninstaller is broken (launches without admin privileges and says it cannot uninstall because of that). The -uninstall parameter also fails because it relies on uninst.exe in a temporary folder :(
