Ohh im not quite sure but ive always found that 99.9% of everything i download for www.download.com always seems to have sumsort of spyware in it.... wich would make sence becuase they need 2 make money right.... but ide just install it then run spy-bot or sum other spyware removal program and then ur good to go.

well to certain extent yes that is true but if we start bothering about all these minimal spyware stuff i don't think we will be able to download anything or install anything

but using the spybots uneccesarily is not advisable as they are like high end antibiotics which resolve one one problem but cause several other ones
so try not to use them or else back up ur data every day
because ur system can crash anyday
