"CNET please remove this malware from your site!!"

December 16, 2013  |  By suaveman1234

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

Nothing. Browser hijacker.

Cons

Browser hijacker, very difficult to remove it, once it is installed. Can't believe CNET would allow download of something like this. You guys just lost a lot of credibility.

"Malware toolbar, installed unwillingly through CNET"

October 27, 2013  |  By kchoze

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

Absolutely nothing

Cons

Changes browser web engines
Adds an annoying toolbar to browsers
A ***** to uninstall

Summary

I downloaded Speedfan through this very website. Despite declining two programs attached to Speedfan, this toolbar got installed against my will on my computer, shutting down browsers, installing this toolbar on my browsers and causing havoc with my computer.

It's the last time I download ANYTHING from CNET. It's DONE, this site is no longer trustworthy.

"HORRIBLE!!!"

August 03, 2013  |  By catalinay

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

NONE! Absolutely nothing good about this.

Cons

I did not want this program, did not knowingly download it, and now it's taking FOREVER to get rid of it. I have a BRAND NEW computer, downloaded the Kindle app from CNET, which is supposed to be a trustworthy site, and this abomination came with it! I am extremely frustrated & disappointed with CNET because now I have to spend all this time trying to get rid of this cancer on my computer.... You are supposed to be a better site than this! And also, the "Uninstall Instructions for Mixi.DJ Toolbar" are NOT helpful. I'm not even that familiar with Windows 8 yet, and all the directions say is "remove HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SearchProtect from the Windows Registry" - how the heck do I do that???? I don't think I'd even know how to do that in Windows 7!

Summary

Extremely disappointed with CNET because of this, and will probably not use the site again. Will also tell others NOT to trust CNET for safe downloads anymore!

"Malware through and through"

July 25, 2013  |  By mlhope

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

Nothing. This is malware.

Cons

Browser hijacker, may infect registry.

Summary

Download.cnet is supposed to be a source of trusted software. Allowing these crooks to upload their "service" to the site is one thing, but this was packaged as an offered service with another product I was attempting to install.

You guys should know better than this.

"Do NOT, under any circumstances, download this!"

June 22, 2013  |  By BLDenton

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

Absolutely none.

Cons

1. Everything it does.
2. Getting rid of the damn thing.

Summary

This came along uninvited when I downloaded Free PDF to Word - and I'll never install anything associated with http://www.freepdfsolutions.com again. (Please note that many of the PDF to Word converters have very similar names, so, to avoid problems, be sure to look at who's publishing whatever you're considering.)

MixiDj is a browser hijacker that makes a mess of your settings and bombards you with pop-up advertising. New versions of Firefox consider it malware and won't let it run. (Thanks to them for that.) But it took over Chrome on my machine. Even if you disable it by getting into your extensions, it just keeps coming back. You have to uninstall it - which is not a simple process - and its associated programs, including Conduit and Search Protect.

The CNET editors need to add a big warning about this in their review of Free PDF to Word.

"A COMPUTER CANCER"

May 11, 2013  |  By arborist57

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

Honestly couldn't find one

Cons

It's a cancer. You remove it from your computer and it reappears. HOW? I don't know. I removed it 3 times and it returned. It must be pretty bad when a number of legitimate sites have to provide step by step directions to actually get it out of your computer. The company support is a joke, they don't even respond.

Summary



Updated on May 11, 2013

BTW just like all the other reviews, no one would ever install this virus on purpose, it came piggybacked on a legitimate PDF to Word conversion program. BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT THE AUTO CHECKED BOXES!!!!Here's the site I used to finally (I hope) remove it http://www.anti-spyware-101.com/remove-mixidj

"This is MALWARE!!!"

April 28, 2013  |  By DS9999

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

None. It's a hijacker.

Cons

Everything. It's a damn virus!

Summary

Absolutely and under NO CIRCUMSTANCES download this! I downloaded EDRAW and MIXI.DJ was included. I hijacked my browser, changed my home page, and spammed popups.

Uninstalling didn't removed it. Luckily, I use Firefox and was able to remove the extension. It's a virus. Thanks, cnet.

"This is not an application it is a virus."

April 01, 2013  |  By k1rod

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

None at all

Cons

I installed PCB Artist from CNET and this malware came along for the ride. It took over IE and Firefox basically Spamming me with neon pulsating buttons warning me that my computer was too slow. And now it was! It took 2 minutes to load CNN as well as most other Web Pages. And it is very difficult to get rid of. You think you've gotten it then it reinstalls itself.

Summary

Be careful to avoid accidentally installing this malware at all cost. Nobody would install it on purpose.

"Jacked up my computer"

March 20, 2013  |  By cjainrun

 |  Version: Mixi.DJ Toolbar 1.0

Pros

It is malware, so no pros.

Cons

Has installed itself everywhere, changed my homepage, and is impossible to uninstall. AVG doesn't recognize it as malware so it didn't catch it in time.

Summary

I tried to download Minecraft from CNET for my son. It didn't work, but mixi dj came with it and screwed everything up. I am so unbelievably angry about this. I thought CNET was trustworthy???? Is anything trustworthy online anymore?
