    "CNet, get this cr@p off your website!"

    March 15, 2013  |   By Kyeh_Khatah


    I got a refresher curse on removing spyware and adware.


    Eight registry keys for adware/spyware were installed, two files for same were installed, trojan.dropper was caught by Norton IS, and it reset my Firefox home page to another adware site.


    CNet, you are risking your professional reputation by keeping this crap on your website. REMOVE IT.
