    "Best of the Matrix screensavers"

    September 15, 2013  |   By ikeeptime

    Version: The Matrix Screen Saver 1.12b

    Pros

    Customizable and very low footprint when not actively running.

    Cons

    The download from Cnet is fine if you are forewarned about toolbar, etc that are not part of the screensaver but are options from other providers. They are junk! Slow down your machine and not worth the hassles. Difficult to remove. (Many of Cnet's downloads have these junk add ons to the actual program you are choosing.) So, how to avoid getting them along with the programs you want? When you see a screen with a button to DECLINE, do it. Hit decline and possibly another screen appears (looking like a user agreement for the screensaver or whatever)DECLINE again. You are not declining the download of what you want to download, only the crap Cnet allows another company to add to the download process screens. I learned from experience and the comments from others who think the programs they download are full of malware. Cnet gets paid to allow this but, hell Cnet, get a clue. many unhappy users get roped into the ***** you allow these guys to peddle along with your legit downloads.

    Summary

    Love the screensaver and read the facts about it that come after the download. the're pretty simple instructions and worth the extra 5 minutes.

    "Malware with this one"

    March 6, 2013  |   By allstar0422

    Version: The Matrix Screen Saver 1.12b

    Pros

    Pretty sweet screensaver

    Cons

    Loaded with malware that was a pain to clean out -- antivirus didn't find some of the files that were causing problems.

    Summary

    Used to have this screensaver, it was pretty awesome. I upgraded to Windows 8 and when I re-downloaded this from CNET, it installed malware that added a search bar and changed my homepage in every browser on my computer (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer), it crushed my CPU usage and I had to go in and manually find what files were eating up my CPU because Avast, Comodo, and MalwareBytes only caught some of the files. What a headache. I will think twice before downloading an unnecessary program, especially from CNET -- I've never had a problem with CNET before this, so I was very surprised with this one.
