I download a lot of free software, I have two different update notifiers that tell me if there is a newer version.
What’s not to like about all of this? One of my downloads, Advanced Windows Care, now called Advanced System Care, keeps sending me downloads that I do not need.
The notice pops up at the stage to click on run or save. It tells me that the download comes from http//software-files-1.cnet.com. About 30 seconds after I click on cancel for the download, I get this error message.http://news.cnet.com
says “Handler could not be removed.”
I get it on a machines that does not even have ASC installed on them. That makes me think that it is sent to me, not my machine. I have also dumped all of my cookies.
I also went to Cnet and unsuscribed to their downloads. That seemed to work until I went to Cnet to get another un-related download.
I also deleted ASC from all machines.
I contacted Cnet customer help and did not get anything of substance to work with.
Can you help me make it stop?
