    Agree with Huupi,a program installing screen savers and tools bars is not a good thing and IMO = spyware.

    People need to slow down, THATS how you get infected, if you did not read as you went, and uncheck these things, then you would have no problem. Thats how malware spreads, spread the word. Ill add a note to the download page.

    I unchecked everything on our test run. Not too pleased with it, but Cacheman goes back to our early years writing memory tools since I can recall, so I am giving him a break. In this picture, I declined everything, but Yahoo Toolbar:

    Hi Majorgeeks, I see this StartEd Free as the ultimate SPAMMER,companies that offer free honest softwares has no need pushing aggressively addons like the way StartEd is offered.There is no mention on their website that all this stuff is included in the downloaded exe file.If they mentioned it beforehand should be a sign of honesty but sneeking in some stuff you don't ask for..............,you know.

    Hey, Huupi, I see your point, and mainly agree, however I am adding reputation points to the authors of a program most of use have used for maybe 10 years now, thats all :)
