I had to Google "foistware":r1:
:lol: Not long ago I had to do the same! I had no idea that crapware was an alias for foistware aka drive by installs. I could share a few more names that foistware is known by but I might get my mouth washed out with soap.
It is installed as foistware but I can't think of any specific download at this time it is bundled with though I do recall seeing it prechecked in some software that I downloaded
I nearly forgot that I had downloaded Dr. Web CureIt just playing around one day while familiarizing myself to programs used in the removal forums. Here's a fine example of Babylon that is bundled as foistware!
How about that? You send someone a link to download a program from cnet to remove malware, and they install a piece of software that is just as aggressive as the malware you want to remove! Go figure! :r1: I love how it states SAFE, TRUSTED AND SPYWARE FREE
in the upper right hand corner of the dialog box.
Softonic is just as bad, by the way. In one download for JavaRa I came across the following foistware. Notice how the 2nd image states that BestVideo is powered by Yontoo Layers! If you look close enough, you'll also find that someone doesn't know how to spell Download. Not once, but 3 times in the same dialog box!
And the best part! It's RECOMMENDED!
