Webutations is risking their reputation by giving CNET a Green Light on the "layering" or whatever.

CNET offers downloads that are chock full of tricky extras that come with the main download.... tricky extras I did NOT want, but they are grey on grey and must... See Morebe UNCHECKED or they come with. Who knows what bugs are in them.

I thought that was the point of CNET - to provide a layer of protection from dishonest, damaging software. AND, I thought the point of having Webutation was to block sites such as CNET.

And the other COMMENTS here agree with me - they got "tricky extras". Who would want software from a company that SNEAKS their product into a download??

Also, even the download I was looking for, and found on CNET, cannot be UNINSTALLED - It is "OTSHOT" - an email photo thing.
So - Beware of OTSHOT [not that you would want it - I thought it was photo editing software, it isn't] .

CNET is bad and Webutation is approving? Now, I wonder if I can UNINSTALL Webutation?

Such frustration, bad reputation, a risky situation for an internet sensation such as Webutation.

Can be a good site sometimes, but most times, you installed malware and adware without even knowing it. If you want to use this site, use it safely.

I thought this was a safe site. But even after fighting off all the bloatware that comes a download I am not so sure any more. It took over a week of scaning to get rid of the viruses my security software found. I hope I didn't catch anything... See Morefrom them that isn't detected.

A good place for free downloads but beware of all the adware forced upon you.
