Unfortunately, it's likely not the fault of the Freemake developer, but rather Cnet. They seem to have taken to bundling malware in with every download and it's installed even if you opt-out. If it were just a simple matter of the download.com site having been compromised and someone managing to infect the files, there likely would have been some kind of public announcement to that effect. There hasn't, AFAIK anyway, so we're left with the conclusion that it's intentional on the part of Cnet in order to make money.
I should just like to warn folks.
Yesterday I downloaded this from the Cnet site thinking it would be safe. Oh, what a fool I was
I would not recommend it to anyone as it come with a vast quantity of Malware, Spyware and forced search engine changing stuff such as BrowserDefender/Tarma/Delta Search. If you are not quick the bad deed is done.
It completely changed my set-ups and I still haven't quite returned to normal!!
Highly NOT recommended.
