Bad computer mojo

I just finished installing then immediately uninstalling a player for flv files. These are the YouTube videos.

The company is Applian Technologies, www.applian.com. I was taken in by the "free" flv player. when I sinstalled the player, there was a choice for "custom" or "express" installation, I chose "custom" and unchecked the boxes for installing "Funmoods" and making Funmoods.com my browser home page.

After I installed, not only was Funmoods installed, it had hijacked my home page.

There was also an offer for "Rival Gaming". I unchecked the "enable Rival Gaming" box, and then clicked "Decline".
It installed anyway.

I uninstalled the crapware and reset my home page.

I find this behavior to be unethical and unworthy of any ethical business.

So now I'm looking for an FLV player. It turns out that Real.com's Real Player is satisfactory. But I'll warn you against these guys.

They should be ashamed of themselves.


But I'm sure they're not.
