    "Cnet are you failling us?"

    January 11, 2011  |   By libausoleil


    I did not use it for the reason explained below.


    At the end of the installation, I was automatically redirected to a site that brought up a warning screen from Google Chrome : I was advised that visiting that site "might harm my computer. I used to thrust Cnet download site. I am not sure anymore.

    well, I don't think it has anything to do with CNET, but rather with the way your personal computer is set up - I didn't get the message you did. No problems with CNET downloads that I know of.
