Upon downloading the CamStudio software, AVG detected malware in it.

As others pointed it, too many adware are packed in the installer and some of them were installed even if I declined the "offers".

When you download this website, it tries to make changes to your pc. I didn't allow any of them, which will probably always be a good idea. After the setup wizard didn't actually download camstudio, I deleted everything to do with it in my files.

Camstudio contains a trojan horse and is generally not to be trusted.

Download link is safe, but make sure to decline all offer when installing. Better than those watermarking Bandicam, though.

So being curious as to WHY this website has a green rating, as well as an almost 90 something positive feeback, yet people claiming it had viruses, I used virus total to scan the download link. It scans with many different virus softwares and came back with one malware alert. I wouldnt advise downloading it.

The first link on the page is a virus down-loader. DO NOT CLICK IT. This page may contain a legitimate download, but there are multiple scam downloads so be careful.
The site redirects you to other websites containing malware. Check virustotal.com. Both the files and sites get picked up as containing malware/viruses.

Downloading software installs browser hijacker Dregol -- even if you don't want it.

Have used Camstudio before, but the last time I tried to install the software it hit me with a trojan horse and some other stuff. Not sure how trustworthy it is at the current moment.

When I opened the zip file after downloading their the program, AVG detected malware. Dozens of reviewers across the internet testify to unavoidable, troublesome malware in this program. Needless to say, I heeded their advice.

I got adware after downloading cam studio. Gave me 4 or 5 (I do not remember) different unwanted programs which I either did not need, or I had better quality software which could achieve better things. Good site, but beware of the adware.

This program is too suspicious. I hit record and my screen kept flashing black and white! I had to hold the power button down for it to shut off! Try fraps instead.

Avira Antivirus detected "ADWARE/InstallCore.Gen7". It's not unmoral to pack adware to the software, but it's unmoral to do that without a hint on the download page.

Useful programs, just have to be careful during the install process of their programs, else you can end up with a bunch of extra junk installed.
To their credit, the company warns the user, sadly it is using ultra small type buried across several screens.

This does have some ad ware with it (as a matter of fact, Mal-ware Bytes detected that the installation pack ITSELF was a virus). Make sure you uncheck all of the "Special Offers" that come with it.
Otherwise, it is a very good screen recorder. SO much better than FRAPS

Great site for screen casting, heard about a previous virus, but its gone now. A+ for this site :)
Review by MissMel Mansis9 years ago
I am not sure if it was just a problem with the beta version or what, but a bug in the program nearly crashed my computer and I had to reboot. I don't think it was a virus though because my computer is malware free and the program uninstalled without a hitch.
