Download.com Turns Evil

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:35 am

Once upon a time, download.com (I’m not linking to the site) was a reputable place to visit and pick up solid, virus-free, bloatware-downloads. It may still have the downloads. I’m pretty sure they’re virus-free. But the bloatware? Well, that comes in a wrapper.
