Pros simple easy to install
Cons ruins MSWORD
difficult to uninstall completely
Summary ABBYY is a disaster.
If you use MSWORD never ever install ABBYY
After i installed it, i could no longer use msword because interference by abbyy. Everytime I open msword to write a text, a little abbyy window asks me if I want to convert the file to pdf, when I close it the msword page is dead/blocked/stalled.
The when I deleted the program it left junk files all over the place. Lucky enough revo unistaller found them and deleted them.
The worst was still to come: after deleting ABBYY MSWord was still corrupted!!
Solution: luckily I always create a systems restore point before installing anything. The restore resolved the problem
