Small world.

I heard such in this forum and installed Foxit and could not find any sign of this issue. I don't mind trying such things but I used the direct download and didn't find any issue.

Please clarify.

Your post lead with it being Foxit. Then you changed to my pc backup which I didn't install or know about till you posted.

As you flamed in your new post, this discussion is now locked. If you want me to take another look, remember I have nothing to do with download.com but would like to know if a title is infected.
