FileHippo is now “offering” an adware laden download manager

Screen Shot 2014-07-17 at 10.00.02 AMSay it ain’t so!  Filehippo.com is “offering” us a download manager that includes special “offers” a.k.a adware.  How generous of them.  Adware is a very serious threat to your PC.  Adware criples performance and makes using the internet almost an impossibility.  While adware can usually be uninstalled, most users have no idea how to.

    I got to admit, the only problem I’ve had in ages is adware and PUPS!! But I will NOT give up on File Hippo’s Application Manager, becuase at least it tried to NOTIfY you of updates required by the originator of the software! Here is the deal! If you see an “Application Manager” update, maybe you should go to the application to get the update! Doh! Also – Avast is providing a pretty good manual scanner that lets you know when some of the applications are ready for updates. I’ve had pretty good luck using it when other sources fail. I still recommend Secunia PSI as a last ditch notifier, because it is way better at stuff that is beyond support now days!!
