Thanks for the reply. But...
While I understand your explanation and solution to how to avoid the 3rd-party software, this solution is not good enough to allow me to recommend cnet downloads for my clients.
<div>I have for years relied upon cnet and download.com as a download location source for my less than technically adept clients who need an easy to use location to download wonderful and easy to use software.
To force them to either create and account and login or download a 3rd party downloaded that defaults to install a toolbar is unacceptable.
This is in my opinion a very serious problem.<div>- Todd Curry
