Support for cnet.com downloader

Philippe Pomerleau 6 years ago updated 6 years ago 4
I think cnet.com downloader support should be added. They now propose a lot of adware with their downloader and can be quite difficult for the home user not to install them. Their downloader must be used by a load of ppl.

Thank you for the report.
CNET installers should be already supported. Screenshot below.
If you have encountered a CNET-based installer which is not supported by Unchcky, please provide a link.

Yes!

I just testet Unchecky on a CNET Download.com Installer-driven download, and there has to at least be a huge red flag warning to the end user on the "Accept/Decline" dialogs or else the user will end up with stuff like "Advanced System Protector", "RegClean Pro", and a lot of other stuff that are a pain in the ass - and verified by almost any good antivirus or anti-malwaresystem as PUP.

I just tried it with this installer and Unchecky didn't do anything:
