PUP.CNET.Adware.Bundle is a potentially unwanted adware application and CNET’s own installer that wraps a limited number of Windows software downloads in a CBS Interactive/CNET bundle which tries to download and install promoted programs, mainly toolbars (at least it’s the Blekko toolbar). When you download an application from download.com, you may receive CNET’s proprietary installer, not the program’s installer. The downloaded file name begins with cnet_ or cnet2_, for example: cnet2_freeocr_exe. If you install recommended toolbar or any other tool, third-party supporters may keep track of what you do on the web to offer you certain software products.
