    "Useful program ... made by shady b-stards"

    August 18, 2010  |   By netbuoy111111111

    Pros

    A bit more powerful (at this moment) than longtime staple downloader websites like KeepVid dotcom. Also intergrates your youtube ID so it can download walled-off videos.

    Cons

    CONS!!!!!!! This program contains the address hijack malware called MyBrowserBar. It's light, as hijack malware goes, but it's HI-JACKING MALWARE. Unless you enjoy random malware on your system stay away from this product. Also since it ... (cont)

    Uhh, WHICH YouTube Downloader did you install? And which AV are you using, because it looks like you're using eSafe when you downloaded this. The only reason you got a virus warning is due to a known virus Corrupt-EP, which can only be set in place if you install TOOLBARS! CNet should learn to start checking downloads not only for spyware but for malicious code as well.
