    "MALWARE, plain and simple"

    November 10, 2010  |   By rdunn

    Pros

    Malware that insinuates itself all through your browsers.

    Cons

    Malware that insinuates itself all through your browsers.
    Didn't uninstall properly or completely.

    Summary

    Due to a friend's interest, I looked at online tv... unfortunately I chose ZiggyTV, which didn't simply install... it installed all through my browsers ...and then it wouldn't simply UNinstall... now I have to go find removers and cleaners to purge this JUNK. This deserves NEGATIVE stars and should be banned from CNET.
    I don't often get junkware or write bad reviews but apparently online streaming tv is rife with over-hyped ads and is one of those niches full of shady marketing tactics.
    I'll be cleaning up this ziggytv junk for some time now, wondering what's left behind on my system. ZiggyTV is a prime example of bad marketing, bad software design, intrusive/invasive programming and just wrong philosophy of abusing customers with junkware. Avoid it.
