    Caution! Don't install this piece of software! First. The software simply doesn't work, simply throwing connection errors when you try to connect. Irritating, but not the first time I've found this with open-source software. But that's not why to stay clear of this. When you install Filezilla, and however much you tell it not to, it automatically installs a piece of malware called Chromium. It installs it by stealth and the first you learn that it's happened is when you start getting asked if you want to make it your default browser. Assuming you immediately say you don't want that, it sets Chromium to be your default browser, sets your homepage on it and all other browsers so some search engine beginning with 'p', installs plugins to all your other browsers, grabs half your file associations and drops icons all over your menus and bars. You can uninstall it, but the uninstall is largely manual, only the core files are removed automatically. Afterwards IE won't work, nor will Chrome (I don't use Firefox). Reinstalling Chrome restores most of the damage, but not all. Reinstalling IE causes a complex DLL clash that makes it worryingly unstable. In total it took me more than four hours to unpick the damage this trojan caused and I still occasionally find some leftover droppings. Once again... This download includes a trojan that is designed to mess up your system and is not unselectable. Do not download this software!

    AVOID. Regretfully, the once great FileZilla is now trash. Don't get me wrong. The software still appears to work fine, but there is no chance in HELL I am EVER GOING TO INSTALL THIS ON MY COMPUTER AGAIN. EVER. I spent the past 24 hours removing viruses and malware. Browser modifiers that turn random words into dirty links in web pages. Searches that redirect you to dirty sites. Popup windows whenever you click a link. GamerForest. SearchKnow. Virus versions of 'PluginContainer.exe'. Very nasty stuff. The FileZilla team has sold out, I hope they are enjoyong the dirty money they earned from this and the data they have stolen. Am I supposed to just trust FileZilla now? No f***ing way. Cleanup tips: 1. Download AdwCleaner from toolslib.net (watch out for fakes - avoid google - go to toolslib.net) 2. Get HitmanPro from surfright.nl 3. Unplug your network cable - stop the viruses stealing your data 4. Look at task manager and terminate (or stop service for) any process you think looks suspicious. Close all browsers - they will have illegal plugins installed and running. 5. Run AdwCleaner 6. Run HitmanPro 7. Repeat 5 and 6 8. Repeat 5 and 6 9. Run a full virus scan Best of luck.
