Pup.cnet adware from cnet download on my computer also.
I installed Techtracker and was told to update Malwarebytes. I updated it and ran a scan. It classified one item as a danger: pup.cnet. I was shocked. I am not a techie and thought I could trust Cnet to be a safe place for downloads.
I have uninstalled Techtracker and after I post this message, will log off, run Malewarebytes again, and never visit Cnet again.
What a shame that the downloads from this site are no longer safe.
