Download.com removes the adware - finally
|In the latest Download Dispatch from
Download.com, they announce they've finally removed all the adware
programs from their website. I've always liked Download.com but I've
always had to double check everything I get from them. The thousands of
user reviews that people leave there have had the effect of improving the
website and making it a safe place to go for freeware or shareware.

Quote from the website - Now with no adware!
With a big sigh of relief from Download.com's editorial department, we banned adware from the site last week. We've seen the scourge of adware face-to-face, and, though we tried to offer reasonable warnings about it on Download.com, we knew it was still a problem for people. Not to mention how often we have to get our test machines rebuilt after adware has thoroughly destroyed them.
