Newest version of Ares Galaxy contains SF installer (Source Forge Installer), a questionable installer package that will install adware if the user isn't very careful. Unless one chooses the GRAY "Decline" button on the installer page, the Ask toolbar will be installed. If one does choose "Decline", then nothing more than the standard software is installed. After downloading Ares Galaxy, and using it to download a couple of video files, I found both files unusable. The only thing viewable was a Spanish language commercial directing the user to a site that would block all ads from Ares Galaxy. I found that this was a redirect to "Softonic", a software company in Spain, requesting a payment of over $30.00 to block all ads, and open my downloaded video files. It's a scam that unfortunately ties Sourceforge (open-source) to questionable funding options. And I thought that Sourceforge was one of the last remaining bastions of honesty and trustworthiness.

Think this is safe for you? It's not, in fact I just now downloaded the program from the official site, started PeerBlock, then started Ares. I watched PeerBlock to see what would get blocked: Peertracking.com, DoD Network Information Center, USAISC Headquarters, and others that I'd never seen until after I installed and ran Ares. Ares failed to connect unless I allowed all these nasty services, agencies, and trojans. A virus scan will not show you this kind of stuff, you have to run the program and analyze what it is really trying to do.... IT'S SHARING YOUR INFO DIRECTLY WITH THE GOVERNMENT!
