A while back I downloaded a program from CNET.
I had good luck with them in the past but I got all sorts of garbage with the program and my browsers were hijacked and modified. Took a lot of time to fix the mess.
I called them and they kindly explained that I must have let some 'optional' programs through and that I could decline them, if I so chose.
Yesterday I downloaded a video editor from CNET and as carefully as I could I 'declined' the add-ons.
Well, I got a b--t load of crap anyway.
Hijacked my browsers - changed homepages - added toolbsrs, etc.!
Parts of the mess were difficult to uninstall and even after uninstalling everything I could find I still have some strange search engine trying to insinuate itself.
Oh, and after uninstalling without getting rid of all the mess I went ahead and did 'restore wystem' back to a good state from last week.
Even after that the 'new' search engine lingers
Firefox stopped working and I had to re-install.
I'm inclined to think that CNET is no longer to be trusted.
What do you think?
