Wise Program Uninstaller, 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 in future, you can simply click the Direct Download Link that is provided on all Installer Enabled product pages.
