    "MALWARE. DO NOT INSTALL!!!"

    July 15, 2013  |   By nickdittes

    Pros

    NONE. If this isn't malware, I don't know what is. I'm an engineer and rely upon my computers, and this piece of garbage was installed automatically from a download.com download without my consent. It was difficult to remove and I am really angry about this.

    Cons

    If this isn't malware, I don't know what is. It's hard to remove and that intrusive "CNET downloader" from download.com automatically installed this piece of garbage "Mysearchdial" program(s) onto my work computer, crashing every browser I had open and lost all the tabs I had open. It installed on its own without my consent and when I tried to remove it from Chrome it was somehow capable of adding itself again.

    Summary

    This software is capable of intercepting all of your personal data on your computer. After removing it from chrome, it added itself again and chrome essentially warned "this application is capable of intercepting all of your personal data, are you sure you want to add this?" I paraphrased that, but the meaning is the same. It added itself to Firefox and IE10 as well. It is still integrated into IE and I cannot remove it. At first, I was not able to remove it from Chrome. Even uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling made no difference because it adds malware onto your computer that ATTACKS EVERY BROWSER ON YOUR COMPUTER.

    DO NOT INSTALL THIS GARBAGE. The company is based in Tel Aviv, Israel for your reference. They purposefully make it install without your consent and make it hard to remove. They purposefully give it no uninstallers, so a computer novice would NOT know how to uninstall this.
