C/net Software Downloads

by bikerbrent / March 9, 2013 4:48 AM PST

I recently downloaded some software from c/net and when I installed it, it forced me to install a piece of malware called something like DJ toolbar. C/Net did NOT give me a choice not to install this piece of garbage. It not only placed an unwanted toolbar in ALL my browsers, but it also hijacked my home page in all of my browsers. This took me a significant amount of time to fix and I believe C/net owes me some money for my wasted time, but they don't even have the courage to provide a contact so I can discuss this with them.
