  1. THAT is EXTREMELY BAD ADVICE unless you want to totally F**K up your computer. NEVER install software without your virus checker running and I also recommend Malwarebytes Pro in con junction with or instead of anti-virus software! It is absolutely unconscionable to promote the placing of scutware, adware, ransomware and other garbage like that on unsuspecting users who may have to spend hundreds of dollars and/or dozens of hours to remove the crap from their computers later. Wow. I don't even believe you said that. Why don't you folks develop a proper marketing model for your EXCELLENT product? Like I said before, either charge home users a reasonable fee like $25 or invite contributions, both via PayPal to make it easy and painless. Not everyone is a freeloader! Anyway, I love the product. Having spent many unhappy hours "cleaning" other people's and my own computer, I despise and hate what goes with it for unsuspecting or careless downloaders. From the Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:InstallCore Is deception and major annoyance how you want people to remember your product? Then please and with respect, CHARGE FOR IT. Believer me, the product is first rate software and it is very hard to locate something that works as well and is as well designed at *any* cost. You should be able to get people to buy it. If you like, I will be happy to write you a glowing review wherever you like .
  2. I *love* your program. It is simply wonderful, simple, elegant and useful. The problem is garbage like Open Candy and IronSource. These things cause incalculable wastes of time and problems, especially for novice users. I can not and will not ever recommend a program/app which is associated with distribution of browser search bars, adware, ransomware (in effect), and misleading trash like those addon programs. Sure, I can get around the obstacles but I shouldn't have to. IronSource's only true purpose is to place unwanted and hard to remove (and potentially hazardous) junk on someone's computer without their complete understanding of what it is doing. See for example: http://www.benedelman.org/news/021815-1.html The obvious answer is to provide two clearly delineated downloads. The first with the addon program, if you must, including a very clear explanation of all the problems it can cause and a careful step by step set of instructions on how to bypass it. The second, a download requiring a modest payment via PayPal or even a donation if you prefer but without the poop. In any case, use of software which installs unknown and poorly defined addons to the end user's computer is unconscionable. You should stop doing it immediately. It detracts greatly from your otherwise excellent software. It has caused me to search for a substitute because until you rid yourself of these scourges, I simply don't trust you. Use of Open Candy and IronSource is a horrible, despicable business model. It seems Open Candy has finally been stopped and is out of business and I can only hope the scammer-helpers at IronSource will soon follow. M. Y. Edited to add: OK, I see one can download a version without IronSource. That's fine but it's not properly advertised... you have to read the FAQ and it's buried deep inside those. It should be at least in the EULA. Better yet, the clean version should be the default. And I say again, many end users including me, would be delighted to pay a moderate fee, say $25, for a copy or we'd be happy to make PayPal donations. Why don't you do that?
