I didn’t have to rely on my true anti-malware (Emsisoft) to alert me that while I was installing IObit Malware Fighter, I was also installing a raft of goodies (including Spigot, Conduit, etc.) on my computers and that I was about to add unwanted toolbars to my Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers.
Maybe someday, IObit will discover that they can make a lot more money by making honest software and charging a fair price for their software – and not try to make money from freeware. Because when they do that, they harm your browsers and your computer by installing junk you don’t need and surely don’t want.

As I'm reading through the prior-posts within this thread ...
I must say ... "Oh-My! The Horror!"
The daughter came for Christmas and got something "malware-ish" installed on My-Wife's Windows-7-Sony-Laptop
(actually, there were many things installed from her one download !!!)
Yes ... There was a "Restore-Point" that did work and cleaned up the Never-Non-Ending-Malware-Pop-Ups.
For all of last year, my wife has REFUSED to try out Linuxmint.com ... until now.
( yes, I 1st verified Mint would work using the Demo-Mode )
OPINION: Two ... Potential-Solutions.
( now all is quiet, not a "windows" in the house )
