For those (like me) who’ve used cnet to download software, please be aware they have now changed their ways of working. I always pay close attention to what other “crap” these installers throw up, and have found that usually cnet is ok.
It’s not now, there’s all sorts in the small print that if ignored will lead to very undesirable malware being installed on you PC. Here’s a post from someone who found out the same thing. http://polizeros.com/2012/12/28/cnet-downloader-installs-malware-without-permission/#.UVHhBhdlUtk
What’s worse, you can’t even de-select the crap, it’s a mandatory option. Idiots. No more cnet for me.
