    "Whats up with the AVG Toolbar?"

    August 7, 2013  |   By Imogen7Ryan

    Pros

    After reading VLC's reviews aimed mainly at CNET I thought I'd return to GOM. The thing installed the AVG Toolbar with it!!! Not funny.

    Before this milarky Gom was and maybe is a great media player.

    I did get rid of the toolbar but still, I am put right off.

    Cons

    Basically see above.

    Summary

    I don't know what's up with this download site anymore but I like many others are trusting a once trustworthy download site less and less. For me personally, this was better than the rest out there. But guys, come on.

    Updated on Aug 24, 2013

    Just to update: It's not actually cNet that is installing the AVG Toolbar, it is actually GOM itself.

    I know this for sure after declining the offers on installation and unchecking the boxes for the other stuff: Then once that was out of the way and GOM was ready for install, it was GOM, without asking, that installed the AVG Toolbar automatically.

    This was NOT on cNet's part I can assure you.

    The AVG toolbar is very simple to remove with an Uninstaller program.

    So, "Sorry cNet for my negative review of something that was not your fault"
