Downloaded software installs IE toolbar without permission
by calcape - 3/17/11 6:33 PM
I installed a piece of software downloaded from download.com. I unchecked 6 boxes in order to deny permission to install anything but the original application. Even so, it installed the Somoto toolbar in IE. I can't find an email address to report this to, so I'm putting it here.
Malwarebytes isn't identifying it as malware, and it doesn't show up in Add/Remove Programs in my Control Panel, so I'm having a tough time getting rid of it. I can disable it of course, but that doesn't fully solve the problem. Has anybody run into this little gem before? (Other than the user who downloaded this before me and left a warning in the reviews... that'll teach me to read the reviews before downloading...)
I'm running WinXP SP3.
