So far I have been able to opt out or use

I opt out or use the "direct download." It is a shame you have to take care when using the installer but once in awhile folk claim it installs with them opting out or clicking no. If that happens, supply links so this can be checked out.

As this forum has no downloads, such didn't come from here.

I would think you know what this applys to.

I went to download IEspellcheck and I was asked to install CNET DOWNLOADER CRAP AND CLICKED NO TO SNAPTO. As far as posting here this site and support are becoming a freaking joke as I did click the appropriate sub catagory when I initally posted.

I've alerted your post.

Hopefully they'll check into that.

No, I can't guess what this applies to. Folk have made such claims before and then we find they are referring to some link in a post made in a forum discussion. finds that title and on the download link at I see FOUR download sources including a direct download at plus

---> a Direct Download Link <--- at

So the download wrapper is easy to avoid for those that don't want that.

CRAP YOU GOT ME ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS COMPLAIN. easy to avoid would suggest that when you see HUGE letters saying DOWNLOAD NOW and next to it an offical Cnet logo then in tiny letters underneath it that just says direct download.

Click through iespell to""

Go ahead and act like you don't push crap onto people I am done with cnet and all of it's off-shoots. I MISS THE OLD DOWNLOAD.COM!

Thanks for the link, I will be forwarding this...

to the Team to look into.

But before I let them know. Let me just get one last clarification.

You went to iespell here:

Downloaded this with the CNET Installer--not the direct download.

Executed the file, Opted out to NOT install the tool bar, yet you still ended up with the Toolbar. Is that correct?

Let me know.
