Reviews of CNET:
CNet has been terrible with their installers. I have had to download their installer to download the actual software installer so I can then install what I thought I downloaded in the first place. Then, many of the installers the keep in their repository have junkware, toolbars, etc. tacked on the installer.
Filehippo, without a doubt. As Hovsep says, CNET (a.k.a. download.com) has its own installers which include adware or worse.
i think CNET Download come with installer that has some offers inside and you have to be careful
