I made an offer to see if this is busted. I have a guinea pig new PC that is clean and new. I can take a download of your choice if you supply a link to see if I can't opt out of this.
Of course if the download is "Coupon Companion" then it's clear that that will install. Share a link for me to test.
This has been reported months ago, but just yesterday I downloaded something, carefully in checking every box that tried to get me to install extra stuff, and today I have Coupon Companion, thanks to CNET.
You've known about this for months, but you have done nothing. You have no integrity and I will never return.
