CNET Virus Infections

OK, so the massive concern about CNET is Download.com’s viruses. We know about the additional offers and the non viruses, but the main thing is the top 10 downloads, they are a LIE. Even if you don’t accept the additional offers and Delta Toolbar, it says in plain text in the terms that the creators have the right to install additional software later. WHY? Download.com only moved to CNET to make it look legit. If the stuff like minecraft for free WAS real, then it would technically be illegal, since it would become Pirate Bay-esque and end up becoming hidden amongst the darknet. Even worse, it targets ANDROID too. Please stop this nonsense. I had to wipe my PC 5 times to get rid of a Download.com infection.
