"Stay away!! Installs spyware and unwanted programs"

July 28, 2013  |  By rambocat74

 |  Version: Fancy Pants Adventure World 3 1.38

Pros

None. My son had played Fancy Pants Adventure and he wanted this one, so I installed it on my computer.

Cons

During the install, Fancy Pants gave the option to download additional programs, like "My Homepage." Despite unchecking the boxes to indicate that we did not want them, it installed nine (NINE!!) additional programs on my computer. Most of these programs were not even listed as optional downloads.

Plus, after the install, there were pop-ups inviting me to back up my computer using an unwanted program, my homepage had been changed, there was a new default search engine in my browser, and I had a new Firefox toolbar.

Windows would not let me uninstall these nine programs through Control Panel. Trying to uninstall them that way just initiated an endless (and fruitless) uninstall process. I had to do a system restore to get rid of them, which somehow affected my Norton anti-virus program, which now is not working.

Summary

Stay away from this program. CNet needs to remove it from the list of available downloads.
