Why are downloads repackaged "cnet_ (Then software name)..."

Last week's, TechTracker's 'scan results' downloads appeared on my desktop with the product name and its specific or generic icon. Following a system restore these same downloads today, with one exception, have been renamed with a prefix of, "cnet_" accompanied by 'CNET green, with white chevron and smile, icons'. Why?
i have not been able to find an explanation for this change in appearance or any information on whether there is any unseen element to this change. May i please have an explanation? Why the change and why now, etc.?
All i found, (if it is pertinent to this issue, i'm not sure and i don't want to jump to the wrong conclusion), predates this change by three years one month: A Greg Penhaligon article: "Download Help Center" dated 4th July 2008 -
