No your reply deos not help. Any site that nstalls anything to my computer without telling me is a pretty sleazy site. I only wish the government would go after sites like this and shut them down. And, yes I do mean CNET. You metnioned a toobar. I opted out of the toolbar and still got this adware from CNET. Anything installed on my computer without my clear consent I consider to be in the same class of trash as viruses and malware. It's clear that CNET and download.com can no longer be trusted and I will never dowload anything from them again.
