Yeah ccleaner is excellent. Sucks when you install something and don't pay attention because it often asks if you want to install some dumbass toolbar. gaah.gif

Been using CCleaner for years. In fact, my wife is running it on her laptop as I type! Good stuff. Do you know what you downloaded to get the toolbar?

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

There are quite a few users out there who have installed the Babylon Toolbar after downloading software from Cnet’s Download.com portal. This is not the only way of installing that toolbar though, as it is available for direct download at the Babylon.com website as well, and via other programs and services that use it to make money distributing the toolbar with their products.


CNET eh? 13.gif I never had any problems with downloads from their site, but always a good idea to read the small print while installing something.
