CCleaner and Yahoo toolbar

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Leon Trollski, Apr 2, 2006.

  1. CCleaner prompted for an update, and as no browsers were running, opened IE as default. The CCleaner site then included a Yahoo Toolbar pop-up, urging me to install.

    No "No" button included.

    Closing the popup caused the toolbar to install!!

    MS Antispy promptly informed me of the installation.

    Of course I deleted Yahoo toolbar immediately.

    But this no-option forced install seems new to me.

    I just installed the latest version. I was given the option (check box)
    during the installation as to whether or not to accept the Yahoo
    toolbar. Granted, it's a small box, but the option is there.
