Still can't find any problems. I will install it and see what happens.

Connectify - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

No problem really Mike, it happens - I mentioned it as a warning - Sweetim is not viral, thankfully, just nearly so - a PITA CNET is usually reliable, and I did want to try connectify.

It does not install that toolbar on my machine! There are also plenty of other people using it, even some here it seems;

Connectify

I am sure that if they had problems with toolbars etc they would have said so?

I have no idea what happened there.

My apologies for any problems it caused.

Regards....Mike Connor
I still have the installer file I downloaded, I'll try it again, see what happens Thanks for checking anyway, I'll report back shortly

As far as I can determine the SweetIm is a completely separate download, as here;

SweetIM Toolbar (Firefox) Software Informer: Latest version download, news and info about this SweetIM Technologies Ltd. program. SweetIM Toolbar for Firefox is an add-on toolbar for Firefox.

a lot of people complain about it being difficult to remove. Anyway, this toolbar is NOT installed on my machine when I install connectify.


You can get it here as well http://connectify.me/ but I often prefer to use sites like CNET because they test for spyware , which saves me having to do it.

It won't run on this machine of course, because I don't have WiFi enabled. But it does not install any toolbars.

I can't find any reference at all to that toolbar being installed by Connectify. I have searched dozens of reviews and various problem sites.

I can only conclude that something else must have installed that toolbar on your machine. I would be most interested in anything you find about that installer.

I've just installed connectify from the download I made yesterday, and no problems. The Sweetim incident must have been a coincidence, although I don't know what set it off - a mystery - apologies again. Nothing on the CNET page or the connectify page.

OK. You had me going there! I hate the thought of directing people to malware and junk! I have replaced the link in my original post.

It can only have been from the Michelin advert in the right-hand panel at CNET's download page. Talk about driving people mad...

OK. No problem. As I wrote, you really had me rotating there! These things can happen.

I will however refrain from clicking on any adverts in order to test it, I'll just take your word for it!
