    "MALWARE - My computer got infected by spigot"

    September 28, 2014   |   By djuncker

    Version: Mayura Chess Board 2.3

    Pros

    Compuiter got infected... haven't been able to play

    Cons

    Install the Spigot malware. It blocks you from accessing your browser configuration, and it crashes upon uninstall. THe nastiest version I had so far.

    Summary

    CNET has become a trove of malware

    Updated on Sep 28, 2014

    After I managed to remove Spigot malware, I did install Mayura from the zip file. The malware was not in the chess game file, but from the CNET download process. Mayura software works just fine.

    "Download at your own risk!"

    June 21, 2013   |   By jwmoravec

    Version: Mayura Chess Board 2.3

    Pros

    I have it on another computer and it's a good chess game.

    Cons

    However, CNet has allowed (or provided) an installer that virtually hides the installation of truly loathsome software!

    Summary

    WHY does CNet do this?! If someone can't trust CNet to provide crapware-free downloads, can they be trusted in other things?! Like many installers, one has to be extremely diligent in unchecking faint, small boxes so that the installer doesn't ram something you would never want down your computer's throat. In this case it was a piece of junk called "sweetpacks" and it was extremely difficult to remove. For more, read this:

    Version: Mayura Chess Board 2.3

    Pros

    Straightforward play

    "Great chess game"

    December 15, 2010   |   By simba911

    Version: Mayura Chess Board 2.3

    Pros

    Mayura Chess includes several engines (the component that supplies Artificial Intelligence to the game.) Depending on your skill level you can play against a strong engine (Rybka) or a weak engine (Easy Peasy).

    Cons

    The appearance cannot be changed much, but then the default appearance is attractive.

    "Nice chess game"

    December 02, 2010   |   By jlacerra

    Version: Mayura Chess Board 2.3

    Pros

    Plays like a real game.

    Cons

    It is too smart for me.

    Summary

    I like Mayura Chess as it is easy to set up and play at a moment's notice. It is too smart for me, but that is a function of my poor game, not its operation.
