WARNING!!!!! DO NOT (REPEAT! DO NOT!!!) DOWNLOAD FROM THE LINKS PROVIDE BELOW UNLESS ...You want toolbars and other misc crap downloaded and installed on your computer iF POSSIBLE LOCATE & DOWNLOAD THE FILE "wupg98en-AFL.EXE" ELSEWHERE
The actual file is fine. It is a WinRar SFX and is a perfectly safe archive. Here is the one from that link that I just tested ...2013-04-28 00:55 29,746,887 wupg98en-AFL.EXE
The problem that the above commenter is describing originates from the piece of crap website called Uploading.com
. When you first get to the intermediate page for downloading you have to quickly uncheck the box that says "use download accelerator". The page is on a timer, so you have to be fast ...
If you fail to do this, the default automatically sends you the "download accelerator", a euphemism for a spyware laden un-necessary software ...
Note the size of the file indicated by the arrow. Many sites send you a downloader and most times they are a few hundred KB in size like this one. You do not want or need the "downloaders" because at the very least they will have toolbars, if not actual spyware.
So uncheck that box quickly and you should never see the downloader. I suggest the OP edit the top post and warn folks ( you can use this image if you want - http://i.imgur.com/k3pd4aP.jpg
- it is that first one shown ).P.S.
Another thing to note is that the default action for that file download dialog in my Opera window there is "Save
" and NOT "Run
". I can't remember if that is something that Opera has by default or if it is a preference I changed. But it is a very important distinction because if it were "Run
" it would mean the only thing separating your computer from malware is a single click or "Enter". EDIT:
