I can't believe my eyes, I just installed filezilla server from a Sourceforge download and my computer and browser are plagued with an adware. Whao! what a disappointment, sourceforge... I guess I'll be deleting my SF account now...
I opened an account just to tell you that your installer sucks big time. I am a systems administrator and I used to rely on SourceForge for my software downloads. I guess I will have to go back to CNet. The installer ran OK, but I could not get the download. Please stop. You are not fooling anyone and you are aggravating loyal users.
Thank you for ruining one of my longest running trusted apps. I switched immedietly after this %$&^$%$# installer!
FileZilla itself is awesome. But I will never install it again because of the absolute garbage that now installs with it. It is totally unacceptable to bundle in the other pieces of garbage with the installer. I do not care how good the advertised product is, NEVER force the user to install additional software they may not want. FileZilla just went from my highly recommended list to my stay away from list. I even went into the advanced install and selected only FileZilla to install. It didn't matter as I still got "FastClean PRO".
As a 71 year old nerd, a user of technology, I've learned over many years TO NEVER AUTOMATICALLY ALLOW ANY SOFTWARE TO AUTOMATICALLY INSTALL ANYTHING. Thus, for those who claim they weren't notified about additional software being loaded/installed, you were and have been for some time. What you did was accept the default which is set to AUTOMATICALLY install everything. Don't do that. Plus, if you had your antivirus software set correctly, none of that software would have been installed. I give FileZilla 5 stars. And, if I fail to take my time doing the installation, then it is MY FAULT not Source Forges. I know better and everyone else should know better. If they don't, well, they deserve to get all that junk on their system. That's how my son makes his living by removing junk from computers because people, in general, could care less. It costs about 200 dollars to have the junk removed. Cash cow computer repairs. I made a nice living that way as well.
