Just to be checking I did this.
Went to Cnet and checked download HWMonitor Pro.
Read the agreement and their is a lot of new unwanted goodies in the agreement. I don't know whethrer Cnet put them there or HWMonitor put them there. I checked except and went on with the download and install. Then up jumped Microsoft Security Estentials and stopped something. (Win/Price Gong)
Then I removed it.
Next was Malwarebytes Anti Malware Pro and it found 7 (PuP.Inof Atoms)
I removed them all.
Next was Super Anti Spyware, the free one and it found 6 tracking cookies and I removed them.
I noticed I have a new browser search bare in all my browsers. MJXI DJ Toolbar
. What a little sweet heart.
I run AdwCleaner and it removed all the entries.and their was a gazillion of them.
I'm I done; no way.
I installed and ran Eset Online Scanner after updating. Just on the C drive. I will do the other drives later. Eset Online Scanner found two (Win32/Downloader Admin.G Apps)
I removed them.
I will be doing scans on my other drives next.
Now folks my computer did not have all these things until the download from Cnet of HWMonitor Pro. I haven't even installed HWMonitor Pro yet. I have right clicked and scanned it with MSE and MAM Pro and it comes up clean. Makes me think all the little unwanted goodies came from Cnet.
I did this test because Britton 30 had mentioned a few time in other post that the new method of getting junk from download was coming from USER AGREEMENT when down loading. It seem like Cnet knows that most don't read all that stuff and stuck some unwanted goodies in the agreement.
Thank you Britton 30. The warning was spot on.
