All products on Download.com are downloaded, installed, and scanned for viruses and malware before being published in our library.
When we re-tested the file at the following location, we were able to download and install the program normally:
Greenfish Icon Editor Pro, like many software titles on our site, does use the Download.com Installer, which securely delivers software from Download.com's servers to your computer. During this process, the Download.com Installer also shows offers for additional, free applications provided by our partners. Some individual software publishers include such offers in their own installers too.
All offers, whether included in the Download.com Installer or in individual publishers' installers, must conform with our security policies prohibiting malware, and must also provide a working method to decline or opt-out of them during the download. You are never required to accept any offers in order to complete a download, but you will want to keep a close eye out to be sure you see and have a chance to select the decline or opt-out option for any third party offers you do not want.
Although you cannot avoid using a software publisher's own installer when downloading their program, if you prefer not to use the Download.com Installer, you can simply click the Direct Download Link that is provided on all Installer Enabled product pages.

I have used Cnet for a long time and have had problems with Malware in some downloads and it looks like the problem is getting worse. BUT I just downloaded something a short time ago and it was ok.
I think Cnet should try using their own website and try downloading these posts to make sure they work and are actually safe.
Today I was looking to Download Greenfish Icon Editor Pro but the file will not download onto my computer and Fails every time I try. I looked for this program on other websites and found the downloads non functional. I do believe these attacks are being sponsored by companies that sell these products and don't want free programs available. If this is not the reason then why the continuous attacks on these products.
I would like Cnet to contact me about this download please. So I can get this program without all the malware.
