CNET used to provide great access to software. Now all they do is install 3rd paarty "sponsored software" on your computer whether you want it or not. This advertising based software will divert searches to their paid advertisers, degrade your existing preferences for their paid opportunities and interfere with your operating system and legitimately installed software. Stay away from anything that they offer for download, especially their free downloads. All of them come with paid ad-on software which will exploit your privacy and injure your computer.
