@remi:
No sorry. Anyway, this would not help anybody. Bundleing JDownloader is very important to keep JD free. If every user would pay a few cents, we could remove bundles completely.

@gorila:

I cannot do more than promising, that we will replace facemoods soon. I cannot exactly tell you when.

will remain without a real access to internet
:confused: Does facemoods act differently on different systems? I Installed, AND uninstalled facemoods many times, and I never had any internet access restrictions.

Nice that they made the video but actually it would be easier for users and for them if they just included all this in their uninstaller^^

Downloaded Jdownloader a few hours ago, and have to say it's a useful program. However.. I have spent part of my evening uninstalling attached malware known as 'Facemoods' from my several browsers and from my computer. When you package your downloads with such parasitic s**t, you lose all recognition for your product which is as I said, a good one.. what the hell seriously?

Well I've seen some crap in my many years of IT experience but this is the worst ever.

Jdownloader has always been recommended by me to friends family and clients but never again - I'm no noob and to say it is clear you know you are installing is nonsense. I miss very little and never saw this coming until the next day when I rebooted my PC after installing Jdownloader to add to a fresh installation of win 7

This is in my opinion an unferhand method of installing this malicious malware - it is - no doubt about that - after doing everyting the video shows and editing the registry to remove traces (see - I'm no noob) Spybot found more hidden keys,diretories and traces 19 in total

if you value this crap more than your good reputation and program carry on it's clear from this post the removal was promised months ago

if you are short of cash I would donate and so would many others but please avoid this crap.It clearly breached my security..... it's not a virus eh - perhaps not but it's clearly malicious malware i WOULDN'T WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH

Rant over

@daves22:
basically, I agree with you. We are working since a few months together with browser and toolbar experts from ASK on a much better alternative. This means an optional toolbar/browser extension which brings a lot of useful JD features. (If anybody has some good feature requests for browser<->JD integration, please tell us! It's still time for feature requests)

Unfortunately, developing takes time, and developing with a big company like ASK, even takes more time (Quality Checks, Compliance, ...)

In the meantime, we keep Facemoods.

* Installation is Optional (There is an extra Installscreen that explains what facemood is, and what it does. you just have to click "skip")
* There is a detailed "Remove Instruction"


About Keys, directories,... Can you name what exactly? Do these things really matter a lot?

If you can tell me what was left back, I can ask Facemoods why, and maybe convince them to improve this.

Supplying removal details is fine but I'm not convinced it has gone completely

I deleted the details but if you install,remove with add/remove progams in Windows then use something like Eusing free registry cleaner to delete any registry entries - reboot then run Spybot s&d you should be able to replicate what I did

Well, JDownloader allows you to skip facemoods, but that disabled-but-checked checkbox tricks you into thinking otherwise.

When I tried uninstalling (through Control Panel->Uninstall a Program) there was one file that I couldn't delete (Cannot delete file: Access is denied)...
I had to access my win partition using Ubuntu and remove the file without caring for windows' file access restrictions... Some people on other forum community used Unlocker 1.9 to erase remaining trash files from facemoods.

unftntly I don't remember what was the name of the file...

I am also a victim of this. This is basically the first time I've ever missed a toolbar in an installation process. It is maliciously hidden, there is only a tiny warning in light gray letters.

I am very angry about this. I spare you the insults you got from other users but be aware that I feel the same way. I have sensitive data on this computer and it put me in shock when I saw some malware program was installed.

The un-install process is a pain, too. If it was only a toolbar from a reputable company like yahoo, but tricking people into installing this is cheat and fraud, especially after knowing about all the issues with it.

this facemoods crap ruined my firefox completely. the good old google/wikipedia etc. address bar search is destroyed for me.

after some work i was able to implement a kind of google search, but when i enter "fraud wiki" it does not redirect me to the wikipedia article named "fraud" like it used to do before you messed up my browser.

you know, there are people who don't have hours of free time to waste on this just so that you can cheat your way into 10 cents by making someone install malware.

this is just cheap and dishonorable :(

Can you please show this with a screen shot?

I understand you're angry but I use a safe browser and this has never happened to my browser.

I usually don't install extensions/add-ons. Why did you install Faecesmood if you don't have to?

Angry You call something installed to your computer without your permission "no MALware"?

On the page advertising facemoods you can continue to install without installing Facemoods. I guess you oversaw this option and installed it by accident.

You have the choice to skip the facemoods installation during jdownloader install process.

However: Due to many user complains, we will remove facemoods how it is now with end of march.
Crap! I didn't notice until the next day all my browsers were changed by a malware, adware or spyware whatever it is, called facemood. Default search engine, home page and a tool bar. I was wondering what happened and spent about an hour to search and remove everything I could see about this facemood. Next, I will then uninstall Jdownloader and never use it again!

Thumbs down Who knows what's next?

Crap! I didn't notice until the next day all my browsers (all! IE, Firefox, Chrome, they did lots of work to screw up my computer) were changed by a adware or spyware whatever it is, called facemoods. Default search engine, home page and a tool bar. I was wondering what happened and spent about an hour to search and remove everything I could see about this facemood. Next, I will then uninstall Jdownloader and never use it again!

That piece of junk spent me an hour, who knows what comes next with Jdownloader? Maybe a whole Saturday afternoon with some other shitty malware, adware, or what-ever-ware. Shame on you people! Can you imagine?

Will people still trust something like this anymore after they were screwed once?
I hope not!

I also regret that this can happen but it is a way to cover some of jD's expenditures.

I never saw it and I'm using jD for many years. You must have accepted its installation otherwise it wouldn't have been installed. There are instructions for removing it and I don't think it takes more than 5 minutes.

Since you installed jD just for one day you won't miss it. Just use another inferior tool.
