Well, crud! I went to download this one and since I don't care to do their stupid social media thing, got a download link. Fine. But without any prompts at all, 3 other programs were installed on my computer. There is no option to uninstall them either. I just deleted the desktop icons and now I need to go searching for these stupid things.

Don't think I'll be downloading anything else from GAOTD again. Is anyone else having these problems?

Oh dear, I feel so guilty now.............. sorry Drac!

I have not downloaded any freebies for a long time now, and I thought the format looked different :sad:

Yes, it's been different for quite a long time now. They try to make you use Facebook, but I don't want to trash up my timeline with this stuff, so I just got a link by email. Don't feel guilty! I've downloaded several of these games and have never had this problem before. Don't know if it was the downloader package from GAOTD or the game distributor itself. Definitely going to complain though!

I tried to download it and when I went to the link I had to download the software informer. even though I didn't want to. then I did a malware scan and I had about 30 things in there. I quickly deleted everything as fast as I could. I am not going to download from this site again either.

In that case, I won't post any more games from this site!

At the end there is a box where you can choose NOT to download software informer. That comes from GGAOTD. For me, it was the "download wrapper" as they call it that downloaded all this extra crap from the game distributor.

Did you download using the Facebook requirement or did you get a download link emailed to you?

That's what I did too... did you get a box at the end which offered to install software informer?

I also ran a Malwarebytes scan after I uninstalled the game and it didn't find anything.
