"Has open candy spyware"

April 15, 2011  |  By gwailo247

 |  Version: Driver Sweeper 2.9.0

Pros

The software itself is useful.

Cons

Open Candy is spyware. It scans your hard drive, without your permission, and transmits the data back to some server. If that is not spyware, what is?

Summary

I'm done with downloading stuff from CNET, and I'm uninstalling Tech Tracker. CNET may want to think carefully about labeling its software spyware free, cause if most AV suites tag something as spyware:

This is from their web site:

Q: What information does OpenCandy collect during installation of an installer powered by OpenCandy?

A: First and foremost, we do NOT collect any personally identifiable information. Nor do we store IP addresses.

We collect the following NON-personally identifiable information for aggregate statistical purposes:
A) Operating system version and language, country location and timezone of the computer running the installer, and the language of the developer's software installer
B) That the developer's installer was initiated, and whether it was completed or canceled
C) Whether a third-party recommendation was made and if so, whether it was accepted or declined
D) If a third-party recommendation was accepted, whether the recommended software's installer has been downloaded and the installer initiated
E) That the recommended third-party installer was initiated, and whether it was completed or canceled.
