"Less than zero stars."

September 30, 2014  |  By aberdeenvet

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

None that I can dream of.

Cons

You and I do not have the time to waste on this piece of trash. Would never download anything from CNET again.

Summary

Figures it is connected to Main Stream Media.

"Shame on you CNET!"

April 04, 2013  |  By LastOfTheMagi

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

NONE WHATSOEVER

Cons

1. Cyber-raping your PC. Forcibly installed without so much as a warning or opt out.

2. Useless.

3. Interferes with normal web browsing.

4. Hassle to uninstall and remove all traces of it from your PC.

Summary

Seems CNET is now in the business of cyber terrorism. Not only is this malware forcibly installed on your computer whenever you use their downloader, it also installs GetSavin and InfoAtoms as well. Although the installer has opt outs for other software, none is provided for these 3. Avoid the CNET downloader like the plague, and get your downloads from other sources, the author preferably.

"Bad software - NO STARS; NOT EVEN ONE!"

February 17, 2013  |  By jjstewart

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

There are no pros.

Cons

Sits on TOP of what you want to see. Click and you get a web page that won't quit. The advertising (above) is false and misleading. To get rid of it you have to take it out of AddOns, Programs, and your Registry. Then reboot.

Summary

Should not be here.

"Need negative stars to properly rate this software"

February 02, 2013  |  By montysimmons

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

Gives a relatively cheap lesson in scam software and you get what you pay for type lesson.

Cons

The software gives you nothing but pain.

Summary

This software will highjack your searches by opening new taps that redirect you to a site of its choice. It also slows everything down. What do you get in return? Nothing good.

How to remove it?
1. Under Control Panel, programs, ... uninstall "infoatoms"
2. at "run" command line, type "regedit" press enter.
3. You will be editing your registry --- be careful.
4. Search for "atom" and delete any folder with the term "infoatom";
5. reboot;
6. To the registry edit thing again;
7. reboot . . . you should be fine

"Nightmare- caused lots of problems"

January 30, 2013  |  By bartomccoy

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

Increases your malware removal skills

Cons

CNET should stop offering Malware for unsuspecting users to install

Causes my Google searches to throw up other crap I don't want after main search results come up. It created all kinds of interference with Internet Explorer... We had to delete registry settings to remove, even after uninstalling.

Our IT department blocks its website because it's so bad.

Summary

CNET SHOULD REMOVE THIS!
DO NOT INSTALL!!! NIGHTMARE.....
DO NOT INSTALL!!! NIGHTMARE.....
DO NOT INSTALL!!! NIGHTMARE.....

"Malware DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

January 18, 2013  |  By hee4joy

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

None. There are none.

Cons

please read my summary.

Summary

I did not download this software, I visited a website and clicked on menu said products (not an ad banner) and another website opened on my new tab, it said if I don't do anything, it will automatically close in 30 secs (which it actually did close)

And then, the worst happened. Every time when I use any search engine (google, yahoo, bing, you name it!!!) a little window pops up with video clip showing some advertisement.

When I was listening to music, it overlaps the sound and really annoys me (the ad volume is freaking loud too)

I've spending about an hour trying to figure out how to get rid of this software but I cannot find good solution yet because I DID NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING.

I think CNET shouldn't put this software to download at all.
I am actually very disappointed that I found download link from CNET (download.com)

GET AWAY FROM THIS SOFTWARE!!!!!

"Contemptible installation tactics"

January 15, 2013  |  By bionic_beaver

 |  Version: InfoAtoms 1.0.10.0

Pros

Wish I could think of just one!

Cons

Massive amount of hyperlinks, intrusive popups and redirects. Everything about this "program" reeks!

Summary

I do not have a clue as to how this program came to be installed on my system. However, I am greatful that a free download from this site (Cnet) allowed me easily uninstall this junk. I used Advanced Uninstall Pro and have not had any problem since! Thank you Innovative Solutions for making it relatively painless to remove this garbage!
