Jeg hentede et program fra siden. Jeg sagde NEJ til reklamer (andre programmer som medfølger) men alligevel installerede den programmet "MyPC backup", Med det var selvfølgelig også en virus som ikke ville fjernes! Startede jeg min PC op, gik den i stå efter 1 minuts brug. Jeg vil fraråde at benytte siden, da de, ifølge dem selv har skadefri software (verificeret af CNET) er det så ikke tilfældet. Aldrig skal jeg benytte siden!
I tried to download a malware protection program that had great reviews (imagine that ) and got hijacked to a completely different program that had horrible reviews,,,,,unbelievable....was extreemely confusing. Then Cnets web site started bogging down and timing out.....WTH
This site used to be great for sourcing downloads for software, no more. Now many of their downloads come bundled with unwanted malware, including irritating spyware toolbars that are not always easy to get rid of. Read other's reports about cnet, I'm not the only one- looks like they've sold out after getting everyone's trust. Do yourself a favor and download directly from the manufacturer's website, NOT from cnet.
Whenever I'm looking for software to download, unless I know the publisher's website address, Cnet is always the first place I look and most of the time the program is listed there. The reviews are helpful and it's good to know the programs are checked to be virus-free. However, I hate the sneaky advertising of other products - they try to disguise it as part of the info on the software I'm interested in and it's sometimes hard not to click on the links they sneak in. If it weren't for that, I'd give the site 5 stars.
Their downloads are now bundled with spyware and viruses. I downloaded a program yesterday, was very careful to un-tick the boxes offering me extra toolbars and search functions and I ended up with a browser hi-jacker anyway! Couldn't get rid of the thing for anything so have ended up having to reset my computer back to its factory settings and re-install everything. Extremely angry.
I joined Cnet many years ago. I have never been disappointed. I do not always agree with their findings, but thats OK because they invite criticisms., another reason for towards their excellence. They always help! Nothing is too much trouble irrespective of how little one knows. I award them the numero 1 spot. In what they do They are 'SIMPLY THE BEST"
i am not an exactly tech savvy person, but there is a time that i need to buy a new phone/laptop. then i need to know whether the items are good or not and cnet is the place where i will look for the review. i know there are tons of reviews website out there, but i find that cnet's reviews are relatively accurate and thorough. it is also a great website when i am looking for softwares, you can see the reviews for the software and for me, i dont feel as unsecure as googling the software on google and go to the developer's website directly. you wont absolutely know whether that website is legit or the download file is a virus. definitely cnet is a great website
Great site to download from unless you are using a cnet exclusive product which is always hard to get registered. Have registered some products online 10 times and when I access the software still receive message the product is unregistered.
I will always have a look at cnet before buying any tech or software. Their reviews are always conscientious and unbiased, plus I like the facility for users to add their reviews as well. Far better than buying all those What...? magazines to find out the best item of tech to buy. A must for any Favourites when surfing the net.
This site is great, I can get information about products, or reviews on items, and also a great place for downloads..And now they even let you know when there is a new release for an item you down loaded..
