PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle Description

PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle is a potentially dangerous adware program and CNET's own installer that wraps a limited number of Windows software downloads in a CBS Interactive/CNET bundle which attempts to download and install advertised applications, mainly toolbars, at least it's the Blekko toolbar. When you download a software program from download.com, you may get CNET's proprietary installer, not the software program's installer. The downloaded file name starts with cnet_ or cnet2_, for instance: cnet2_freeocr_exe. If you install recommended toolbar or any other tool, third-party promoters may trace what you do on the web to suggest you certain applications. That's the main reason why CNET's installer is found by some anti-virus software as adware, PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle and even a Trojan infection, although there are others. The exact installation is a process of the four steps. The logical progression of CNET's wrapper software makes it very easy to accept advertised software programs by default, especially for unsuspecting computer users who don't take much notice of installer screens and mostly simply click 'Next'. This is the third major problem with PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle, all the special offers and extras are allowed by default, what is known to be a 'Opt Out' system. PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle may install Blekko toolbar and change the default search engine to blekko.com. Get rid of PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle as soon as possible.
