    Little too late!
    They lost my trust years ago and I will never use their services again :)

    They are only doing this because they are getting blacklisted or blocked by google & chrome. They are most definitely NOT doing it out of the goodness of their heart. No sir. Since I haven't used them in a long time they kinda-sorta fell off my radar.

    All this ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ with pups and stuff just makes the windows computing experience less enticing.

    This is excellent news. I visit download.com every day to have a look at new additions and updates to the antivirus category, and occasionly to look for over software. However when I do download software I always have chosen the download link to the original installer, or downloaded the software from its homepage.
