for installing "Registry Power Cleaner" Author - same as
the last Acceptance button was to agree to make "My.Freeze.com"
as your default homepage.
After the InstallIQ is finished and downloads the actual digbsy
setup file (the 15.2MB one) and you actually install digsby you are
then presented with these pre-checked selected options:
Run Digsby now
Start Digsby when my computer starts
Make Google Powered Digsby search my homepage
Make Google Powered Digsby search my search engine
Add Amazon and Ebay search to my browser
Now deselecting all options to close upon installation does not
terminate digsby... it opens your browser to the digsby site with a
"thank you" notification.
If these options were not pre-selected and left up to the user
to click to add during install, I would give digsby a Green to go
But as we all know, most people, especially young people, do not
read EULA's, privacy policies, or even review pre-selected install
options, they just click "install" "OK" "Submit" to the
installation is quick and they can try out their new "toy." The
digsby developers, and freeze.com are well aware of this and that's
why everything is preset to install all this other garbage with the
BTW 39MB / over 2,000 file in over 35 folders is a bit much for a
Digsby is coded in Python and requires an interpreter to load it's
base files on Windows
So with the freeze.com spyware, the browser exploits, and the
adware... why is WOT rating tis Green?
