2:37 /

Our worst downloads of the summer are downright frightening.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Welcome to CNET Top 5 where each time we meet we count down another hot CNET List. I'm Tom Merritt. Every three months we step back let Peter Butler and Mark Sikes from Download.com hold their noses and come up with the worst downloads available on download.com; and it's that time again folks and this time it's scary. So let's count down the count Top 5 scariest downloads. At number 5, digital hairdressing salon; now you may think there's nothing scary about men's hair but you haven't seen some of my old videos. You also haven't seen this program. The Game, as they call it, allows you to add hairstyles, beards, and accessories to pictures you can't resize resulting in spine chilling results. Coming in to number 4, the Chuck Norris facts widget. Chuck Norris is scary enough respectably so the fact that his blood runs with magma along is proof of that; but listen to the facts of Norris read in this solace robot voice. "Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants." Creepy. Up to number 3, food and flies screensaver; an old plate of potatoes, some boiled spinach, some sort of braised meat substitute, covered in flies. Sliding into number 2 are the evil spawn of the program I Clone; now this is a five-star program but look what its users have rocked with it. Close your eyes Disney fans. Oo I don't know about you but my heart may stop if I see another hell spawn download like that so let's take a look at the Top 5 most popular downloads real quick. Ah I feel safer. But alas we must go right back into the most blood curdling download of them all, a download that will stop hearts with fear; at number 1, it's a 3-D mailbox? What could possibly be wrong with a three dimensional representation of my inbox. I mean sure I don't like spam--run. I think I lost.
