    All2MP3 was my go-to for converting most audio files to MP3. Was.

    In the past, when I downloaded it, it was just an app in a DMG file. This time, it's in a DMG file that also bundles MacKeeper and some survey nonsense.

    Stay away.

    Where did you download it from? Did you download it directly from the manufacturer: http://www.tresrrr.com or from a third party software supplier, like CNET? Things like MacKeeper are often added by third party software suppliers but not usually by the manufacturer.

    The download from that website does seem suspicious at first glance. It is a custom downloader/installer with lots of scrambled JavaScript. A couple of relevant search results as well.

    I rather use established and well known companies to convert any media into any output media, and nothing like any2mp3 things that are made for one reason: advertising income.

    All2MP3 was a legitimate piece of software. Not well-established, but one of those freeware obscure apps.
