  1. AtuZi is the worst. Ads and popups all over the place. It’s like going back to the early days of the internet when spam was out of control. Very disappointing from CNET’s Download site, which always had a reputation of being reliable and guaranteeing virus free and adware free downloads. I got infected with AtuZi and will never use CNET again for downloads, or anything else for that matter. Bad move, CNET.
