    "DO NOT Download"

    April 24, 2013  |   By cygnetusa

    Pros

    The brisk of Chrome outways any benifits

    Cons

    Comes with "Allsearch" which appoints itself as the Administer
    of Your Computer.
    in 4 days it will add "Search Conuit".
    it can then enter Your Machine anytime it wants to.
    Upload any information you have on Your Computer.
    Dowload, and remove programs at will.
    it can even disable and erase your Operating system.
    You bought Your Computer, unless you work for google,
    and You alone should be its Administrator.

    Summary

    Please do not use this product, as it has spyware, and Mal-ware
    included in present Downloads

    I use to be a fan, and would have been if I could have rid myself of "Allsearch" and "Search Conduit", but seeing "Allsearch"
    appointed it the Administrator of my Laptop.
    I could not.
    it saw fit to remove my firewall, and antivirus
    program, when it detected "Allsearch"
    So after Formatting my hard drive, and reinstalling Win7 I chose Opera instead, boy
    has opera improved
    Be carefull out There

    Your system is infected with malware that is no part of Google or Chrome. In dozens of Chrome installs and countless updates, I have never run across Allsearch or "Search Conduit," far less had the administrator account or privileges hijacked. Install a good anti-malware program and keep its subscription current. Practice good web surfing habits and don't click on suspect links in emails.

    @cygnetusa ".....and you alone should be its [your computer's] administrator." How true! The user MUST be in complete control. Intrusive software, whether it's made by Google or any other company, has no place on my computer. That's why I use Firefox on a linux distribution.
