    The CNET installer is bundled with OpenCandy and is correctly detected as a PUA.

    Hi there,

    Can I ask you to check again? The installer is not bundled with OpenCandy.

    Thanks.

    Hi stackz,

    When you run the installer, an OpenCandy isn't offered or installed, however, the installer contains a bunch of strings that, I guess, are being detecting as OpenCandy (even though we instructed CNET not to bundle the installer with it).

    Now I look like a tool :)

    Off to yell at CNET.

    Cheers!

    Andy
