Download cite
« on: January 30, 2013, 11:29:26 PM »
As of late Cnet is getting more and more negative comments as a result of their bundling an use of their own installer for a good many downloads. I suggest that AVAST provide users a choice of cites to use in obtaining it's products and better still make the downloads available from it's own cite. I currently use the FREE version and am very happy with it. I suggest it's use to others, but they get turned off when they are directed to Cnet for the download. I have to tell them it can be obtained from other cites. I have been told they don;t trust products that would even think of using Cnet any longer and are switching from those products. I think this is a tad over reaction but thought ya might want to think about all of this.

Thanks
Wildman

When you do the download from Cnet's Download.com site, you wind up with the following:

You'll notice, there is no Download Manager just the straight download of avast!
I personally always get it directly from Avast:
Direct download of avast! Free

Worst the screenshots they display are a mixture of the free V.7 and for closed beta version.
