Script retired - This script has been retired because it is no longer needed, as Download.com now provides a "Direct Download Link" below their bundled download links.


CNET Download.com bundles their own installer with many applications. The installer by default installs a toolbar and changes your home page. This script "NoBadware" changes Download.com's download links to point to the direct download.
