Hi,

I actually donated to you some time back to get the G version, first of all still waiting on the link for the new G version.

So decided to try out the free version whill waiting, NEVER NEVER AGAIN, i made sure to decline every offer and skip every malware i was asked if i wanted to install, still got 3 pices of junk installed on my computer, one of them draged the computer down to 0 speed, everything just started haning, to be honest i was PISSED!!

It's okay you want to earn some cool cash on doing FM Genie, but force install Malware, when a user asked to skip the things is just not okay!! Got some YouTube Accelerator, some Updater thingy that wanted to update my computer with stuf i had no clue waht the hell was, and a third item i can't recall the name on.

Thaught i had to do a reinstall since the computer was acting up after the 3 shitty items got installed, and my computer is brandnew, and according to 3DMark in the top 6% of computers tested with 3DMark, so i was supprised that 3 crap program could do that, lucky enough i thougt of Malwarebytes, my luck is that it removed all the crap.

But again seriously pick a better parter, that accept the choises of the end user.

I know you are going to disagree and possibly argue, but I guarantee that you did not fully decline the offers. Many have second windows with wording like "confirm" or "cancel" after you click "Reject". Confirm actually accepts the malware although it looks like you have to confirm your choice to reject, etc.


If you fully decline every offer there is ZERO malware. There is not ignoring your options either, just trickery with their wording. The installer does exactly what you say.
Im very meticulous about reading thos messages, worked with IT all my life, and the installed Malware, was not even the things i was asked about.

The things i where offered, where ehm some searchengine something, some smiley thingy, like most gets from other software here in denmark to, so thats why i wonder about the trust to the company supplying the crap.

What was the malware called?
Its not only malware, its viruses. They caused me two bluescreens after I installed GS, and problem was solved when uninstall every junk that comes with GS and GS included.
I've downloaded Genie Scout to see what the problem is, and I have to say that I haven't received any malware or viruses, after choosing to decline the options. Maybe it's just a once-off thing
But why you include malware software inside your product anyway, either with or without an option? Did you receive money to distribute this junk? This harms your reputation. Just stop before it's too late.
I had this too, the spyware installed was some ghastly program called imminent which was made up of smileys and instant messaging addons. Had to clean up the computer a couple of times but it still kept linking through Chrome. Ended up doing a full restore to a couple of weeks before which so far has done the trick.
I just made a post about this exact same thing and I can validate that you get the sh*t without accepting it. I will never donate to the author of FM Genie Scout after this. There is no better way to destroy all your reputation than including software like this in your installation.
