A lot of the programs that they host have spyware/adware. They usually warn you in the description, but not ALL of their stuff is safe.

The new adware and or spyware are a part of the (do you agree) part of the installation of the program your about to install, and most people don't even know they are agreeing to it being unleashed on their comp.

Now they say before installing, read the agreement 1st.

Look at the freakin date of this thread... this is over a year old... I can safely say that is an old thread and does not need to be brought up again.
