    "Will Not Install, And You Get a Virus!"

    April 19, 2013  |   By Gold Dust

    Pros

    There is none.

    Cons

    Will not install, Installs apps that you do not want. Got virus but it was blocked by Avira, here is the error that I got http://nsis.sourceforge.net/NSIS_Error . I had to use system restore and I also used Norton GoBack.

    Summary

    I tried three times to install Avant Browser Ultimate, no luck just a virus and apps and you will get an error message telling to go here http://nsis.sourceforge.net/NSIS_Error . I have never had any problems with any other downloads here.

    The Cnet installer is where the apps come from and you can not stop them. The download is for 9.33MB but the Cnet installer is for 13MB which brings in the apps and the virus, the direct download link will only bring in a virus. So stay away from both of these and never down the Avant Browser Ultimate, look for another browser SRWare Iron is very good.

    Actually, you can stop them. Download directly from the Avant website and you will get just the browser and not all the other crap that Cnet adds to your download. Your one-star should be reserved for Cnet, not Avant as they do not add the junk to the download. If you can't figure that out then you deserve everything you download and open.
