    I went along to the Nokia website (eg: http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,,18979,00.html)

    But as soon as I clicked onto phone demo site, it requested to install with Full Permissions.

    I did not allow this install, but why does a 3D Player need them permissions.

    Anyway, I think it looks a little dodgy, and the name CULT 3D is too.

    www.cult3d.com is the website for them.

    Does anyone think they are spyware, or is it a safe download?

    Regards,

    Hi Gaz,

    As far as I know it is not spyware, but it will dump an ActiveX element in your Downloaded Program Files folder.
    In a HijackThis log it would show up looking something like this:
    O16 - DPF: {31B7EB4E-8B4B-11D1-A789-00A0CC6651A8} (Cult3D ActiveX Player) - http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/resources/cult3d/cult.cab

    (The website could be different)

    Regards,

    Pieter
