It is difficult for me to describe just how disappointed I am with Filehippo and SUPER/eRightSoft.
We knew that the eRightSoft homepage
author was a blithering idiot, because he made it impossible for visitors to find where to download the company's product: SUPER. But that was why Filehippo was (not is) the place to go
, if you wanted to download the otherwise fine SUPER converter. On Filehippo it is easy to find where to download SUPER, so that's where we went.
And as usual Filehippo would supply a clean file, wouldn't they.
No, they won't! They would, but they won't!!
I want to tell you the story, but I need to say upfront that Opera was installed without my acceptance!
Of course I was soon aware that this has become adware:
"Okay, I know how to unselect
", I thought, and went on installing.
Notice, there is no
] (no red Exit -button), but "Close" is spelled & greyed out
and moved to the lower left corner, (where "Close" never is situated in Windows)
and normal installation is now custom installation for experts only,
also, this picture is misleading, because all extra programs were pre-selected by default
(before I realized I needed to take some screenshots):
^ Did you notice that Opera will "be SUGGESTED"
These warnings came during installation, when I unselected the extra offers:
"You removed a program. This will affect your computer. Abort?
What would you click here? The answer is not OK...
My PC might
not be infected, it is
infected! (Yes, by this application!)
^ This Uniblue program is called "Speed Up", so I tried to be speedy, but I was too slow:
Even though I clicked Decline
(can you even find the "Decline" -button?)
half of Speed Up and all of Opera were installed!!!
This was too much for me; it is not acceptable behaviour, even from greedy, blithering idiots.
In my old-fashioned mind Filehippo should be above this. But on the contrary, Filehippo is the central part of it.No more Filehippo for me!
