nice strategy first scam, distribute virus , what more can i say
this company has no ethical morals
This site seems legit to me. If any viruses come with software its installing, its probably because of the site your downloading from.
I don't know much about this site, but it seems fine to me. I like that it has readily-available contact info, which I don't find on too many shady sites.
I really don't like how it shows you 5 offer screens. Just show me what I want! Also, I had a lot of spyware and malware issues, once I downloaded something from their site. I really don't like this site, very malicious.
Don't be fooled by the TRUSTe Seal. This site requires you to download InstallQ which in itself isn't a worm/virus/Trojan so can get this seal. It's what InstallQ does that is bad. Very very bad.
If you are curious about seeing what these things actually do, or how they may effect your system, create a virtual windows 7. SUN offers a great working and free virtual system called Virtual Box. Create a new system, backup the new system, browse to this site or any other site you want to test using your fresh new virtual windows 7, download said software, watch your virtual system get trashed, delete it, copy backed up system over the trashed system and you are ready to test another site. ;) This may be a little much for a lot of people but I personally like to see what those garbage peeps are doing.
Have a nice day and be safe!
I like the choices and ability to not have to install apps I don't want.Thanks for making great software available and free! Love music-oasis :)
