Unrated now but if downloaded it is horrid to disinfect.

1. Did you actually download and test it yourself?
2. Did you download it from Cnet or from the site itself?
3. If you downloaded it from Cnet, did you compare it with another installer from Cnet to make sure it wasn't just the rubbish Cnet bundle?
4. You really should've allowed more than 24 hours for someone to reply to this (if anyone was actually going to in the first place)

The CNET download is malware, a deceptive installer that buries deep inside your system. I would never recommend to download anything at all from them as you cannot trust them. download.cnet.com should be deep red in my opinion.

CNet itself is a malware/adware (that installs a bunch of optional useless software before your desired software), which I usually DON'T download there. Apart from CNet, the toparcadehits.com is indeed a malware too, so I rated both of them REDS.

Of course, because it does not have enough reputation by WOT users. wait patiently (at least some users warn that the website is dangerous). As for CNet, millions of users rated it green a while ago before it goes to bad business, so it's still green.

I downloaded this on my pc, toparcadehits when I downloaded the CNET downloader, because my friend wanted to download something anyway, so i said yes, but yet again it is malware, toparcade hits hijacked my browser and constantly pop up ads when ever i visit certain sites (ebay, amazon etc) that I need to fill a questionaire about my experience with the company and I could win an iPad or iPhone and all that crap. If you download from cnet make sure you do not download the downloader and use the external download link below the button that downloads the cnet downloader if it is available.

So, Amobirius, was it just CNET? Or is it toparcadehits?
