"Google this - it's malware. Duh. 'Nuff said."

October 01, 2013  |  By Finklenator

 |  Version: Coupon Companion 1.18.149.149

Pros

It has a catchy name that almost sounds like it's not from China.

Cons

If you aren't good with computers, you will probably have to pay someone to remove this virus. So if you have lots of money, download this and help out a starving geek somewhere by paying him to remove it.

Summary

If CNET is hosting this, I'd deduce that they should no longer be trusted to host programs that are "guaranteed spyware free"

Cnet, why auto download junk on peoples computer?!? thats irresponsible. If you want to hand out free products, don't download junk on our computers. That sucks... That wasn't the first time a program was downloaded without my knowledge either...

"Piece of crap."

April 01, 2013  |  By fqusir

 |  Version: Coupon Companion 1.18.149.149

Pros

None. Who wants something constantly popping up ads on your computer?

Cons

Mysteriously showed up on computer. It is completely advertising.

Now I cannot uninstall it, the uninstaller is broken and it is the only extension Chrome does not give me an delete option for. Not only that but none of the options in CNET's "uninstall instructions" do not work at all.

Summary

This is a piece of crap malware that gets on your computer and takes advanced techniques to remove, and is completely advertising. I do not want a "companion" always telling me coupons for random things. I can't think of someone who would want a program that brings you ads all the time, infests your computer, and does not let you remove it.

"I love it!"

February 18, 2013  |  By NMGuy75

 |  Version: Coupon Companion 1.18.149.149

Pros

I get so many neat deals.

Cons

None that I can see.

Summary

I love this program because it reminds me of such great deals. It knows exactly what I am looking for and takes me to the advertisers so I can spend my money on their great merchandise. CNET has a winner here.

"Malware installed without consent."

February 10, 2013  |  By angrywiththissite

 |  Version: Coupon Companion 1.18.149.149

Pros

None .....

Cons

It is malware bundled in the installer.

Summary

I am always very careful to uncheck unwanted software bundled in installers and downloaders that may opt themselves in by default. I used CNET's downloader foolishly thinking it was safe. Even being careful to opt out of any unwanted downloads I still wound up with Coupon Companion. This software is vile. I have removed it since but I am very upset with CNET and I now know that they are no longer trustworthy and I will never download from them again.

"Can't believe CNET would allow this!"

February 10, 2013  |  By skaggsey

 |  Version: Coupon Companion 1.18.149.149

Pros

There are no PROS - it's Malware!

Cons

Can't believe CNET would allow this obtrusive and annoying plug in to be associated with ANY download, since they preach a lot on keeping your PC clean. I know CNET is free but that's no excuse to start allowing this kind of crap on my PC. Shame on you, CNET. I just lost a whole ton of respect for you guys!

Summary

Stay away from CNET if they are going to start promoting crap like Coupon Companion.
