Please keep in mind that you do need to have pop-ups and cookies enabled in your browser in order to set and retain this preference.
If you clear your cookies, the "Off" preference will be lost and you'll need to reset it. We apologize for the inconvenience.
As R. Proffitt noted, there is also a "Direct Download Link" available for all CNET Installer Enabled downloads. The only time you will *not* see a Direct Download Link for a CNET Installer Enabled download is if you do have the Installer turned off and are logged into the site - because in that case, you would not need a Direct Download Link.

We have shared your feedback about the Installer with the appropriate site managers.

CNET Customer Help
Hello, I've noticed that when I set my preference to off for download.com installer after awhile CNET switches it back on forcing me to download crap to my computer. I just updated Ashampoo and there was that stupid installer! I declined all those freaking offers but one got installed anyway. I should be able to sue you CNET for infecting my computer with crap! What the hell is this??? SweetPacks toolbar??? When I set my preference leave it the **** alone!
