Alert! Do not download from CNET's Download.COM! Ad-pusher and other crap injected to users computers without consent!

Alert! Do not download from CNET's Download.COM! Ad-pusher and other crap injected to users computers without consent!

I was alerted by a user that his friend downloaded from Download.COM and found all sorts of threats. I quickly tried to download from Download.COM and found them installing all sorts of crap without my consent before they even begin letting you download my software. I will remove my link to them until further notice. I'm sure they will come to their senses at some point, but right now, please be aware and avoid downloading anything from that site.

Please note, when you download from this site, one of the 2 main links, you are downloading from either my Comcast web account, or a free host service - these packages were not modified by any external entity and I recommend you download from here.

Some web-browsers, on some operating systems will refuse to allow you to download directly. It is your choice to elect to keep the download regardless and install and trust the software, and I hope you can rely on my word that I released my product with good faith and without viruses or threats. There have been multiple installations and thank you emails received as well as testimonials to that matter, but as things stand - Chrome or Windows 8 might choose to give you a few extra alerts while downloading my product.
