Delta Toolbar

by Pruimedantpit / April 4, 2013 3:15 AM PDT

How do I download various software from Cnet without getting the Delta Toolbar? Sometimes there is no option to say no thank you. I resent this intrusion.

I have had to cancel downloading a few programs.

I opt out, I use the direct download or I just get it from the maker's site.

That's 3 ways and so far, the only time I find a toolbar or such is if I didn't opt out.

Isn't there an alternative direct d/l path as in going to the source of the file itself rather than through CNET filebase. Also, isn't it possible there is a [x] box you can uncheck(during install) and proceed w/o loading that toolbar or any other similar one??? If not or too troublesome, don't get the file, google for another source. The same applies to any so-called download manager s/w. You may not be able to bypass that, but aware of the process and cancel at any time.
