My antivirus will no longer let me download anything from this site, every time I hit the download button my antivirus tells me it has stopped several infections. I only use this site now for reviews occasionally, be careful if you plan on downloading anything from this site and make sure you have an antivirus and its up to date. BETTER OFF STAYING WELL CLEAR.
I recently attempted to download a pdf reader (Adobe) but stumbled across the CNET site. With the reputation it had I thought all would be well. How wrong can you be...
It downloaded "Delta Search" a browser hijacker and started to persuade me to download other" paid for" junk. Fortunately, I am wise to these scams. I managed to get rid of the malware before it did any real damage and rolled back my registry to a previous security copy, because otherwise I could not use my PC.
I contacted CNET and got back a lot of platitudes but nothing I would really call an apology.
NEVER, EVER attempt a download from CNET or DOWNLOAD.COM unless you want to spend time cleaning your machine afterwards.
Want to pick up a trojan, adware, nagware or any other kind of malware? Then head over to download.com, where it seems you can pick up a bundle all in one these days. Appalling drop in standards of checking linked software and actively bundling unwanted software in with the good these days. Used to be my trusted source of software, but not any more. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
I have been using download.com for 10 years. This time though, when I used it, a download.com installer was installed on my computer without asking me. It is now running in the background and I will have to root it out. My antivirus program went crazy and I got several warnings. Two viruses had to be removed. "Search setting change notification, search-results has blocked an attempt to change your homepage and default search provider" Unfortunately it didn't work. Everything has been changed.
"New add-on or extension notification, search-results has blocked an attempt to add a new add.on to internet explorer"
Jeg hentede et program fra siden. Jeg sagde NEJ til reklamer (andre programmer som medfølger) men alligevel installerede den programmet "MyPC backup", Med det var selvfølgelig også en virus som ikke ville fjernes! Startede jeg min PC op, gik den i stå efter 1 minuts brug. Jeg vil fraråde at benytte siden, da de, ifølge dem selv har skadefri software (verificeret af CNET) er det så ikke tilfældet. Aldrig skal jeg benytte siden!
I tried to download a malware protection program that had great reviews (imagine that ) and got hijacked to a completely different program that had horrible reviews,,,,,unbelievable....was extreemely confusing. Then Cnets web site started bogging down and timing out.....WTH
This site used to be great for sourcing downloads for software, no more. Now many of their downloads come bundled with unwanted malware, including irritating spyware toolbars that are not always easy to get rid of. Read other's reports about cnet, I'm not the only one- looks like they've sold out after getting everyone's trust. Do yourself a favor and download directly from the manufacturer's website, NOT from cnet.
Their downloads are now bundled with spyware and viruses. I downloaded a program yesterday, was very careful to un-tick the boxes offering me extra toolbars and search functions and I ended up with a browser hi-jacker anyway! Couldn't get rid of the thing for anything so have ended up having to reset my computer back to its factory settings and re-install everything. Extremely angry.
I joined Cnet many years ago. I have never been disappointed. I do not always agree with their findings, but thats OK because they invite criticisms., another reason for towards their excellence. They always help! Nothing is too much trouble irrespective of how little one knows. I award them the numero 1 spot. In what they do They are 'SIMPLY THE BEST"
