    With protection enabled isn't prossible to download software from download.com (http://download.cnet.com/windows/ to be exact). The download button isn't available:

    and with protection disabled:

    Please fix it, download.com is an important site. And make sure not to miss the Direct Link. The green button does not actually download the desired software but an ad-enabled downloader by cnet. Read more here: http://download.cnet.com/2701-20_4-1446.html

    Thank you in advance.

    Ugh thats a horrible website and i would never suggest anyone download anything from there its always getting reports for malware, adaware and other nasties i personally stopped using that site years ago and just google for the program i want or use majorgeeks.com myself now.

    I'll leave this site for the devs to decide because like i said its got a bad reputation.
