And your point is?

Sorry, not sure what your post is intended for.

ZNSoftware is not part of CNET or ZDNet as far as I am aware, so are you promoting this site, or is there some problem you wish to discuss?

ZN Icon Creator

This was touted as a download but all I got was a zip file with an address for the website and when I got there, no Icon Creator to be found. I got a notification from CNet thanking me for downloading the Icon Creator, which is innaccurate as I didn't download it. Compliments of the Season to all.

This one?

ZNSoft Icon Maker

When I downloaded it, (using the Download button at the bottom of that page), it arrived as a Zip file. Extracting the files showed me 3 files, "Lisez-moi.txt", "Read-me.txt" and a 'setup.exe' application. I would assume that is the application that installs the software. I didn't try because I don't need that software. I received no emails from CNET, but that doesn't surprise me as I gave no details for the ZNSoft web site to be able to email me.

Tell us again what you got when you downloaded from that page?

There is a link to a Download.com, and that takes us to;

When I downloaded from Download.com, I got the same Zip file with the same three files.

I see no problems here.

When I clicked it ...

it had some links to trials and such of Microsoft software, in French language. Nothing interesting for the rest of us.

Junk downloads?

I looked over a few and found nothing good there. What did you find?
