    "STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PROGRAM"

    March 19, 2012  |   By farker1

    Pros

    unzips archive

    Cons

    loads computer with browser-hijacking software

    Summary

    CNet warns that the Yahoo toolbar may install if you don't pay attention. That is the least of your worries. This product from Bandoo silently installs the searchnu trojan as a BHO, which takes over your search engine choice and God know what else. Took me a while to figure out how to eradicate it completely and I am still not sure I have. Also places a url link to free smilies on your desktop - who knows what evil awaits you if you click it.

    STAY AWAY, and Cnet - I thought you tested for malware. A fail here.

    Wow, Farker1,
    Thanks for posting this. And sorry to hear about this terrible trojan. Thank goodness I didn't immediately trust it first seeing their site on the top of a search list for zipping.
