Answer
If he is referring to downloads from the Bleepingcomputer website, be aware that advertisements are shown on this site unless folks are logged on with a forum account as a registered member. These are AdSense Google Ads which is allowed in order to defray the cost (pay the bills) of maintaining the board. Although the site owner permits ads, we have no control over them and BC does not recommend or endorse any of the advertisements. Sometimes the ads are for downloading junk registry cleaners or other worthless applications not recommended by BC and they may be bundled with toolbars and other software. When not logged on, some folks may click the incorrect download link and install a program they did not intend to install. Again, if you are logged in to the forum, you should not see any advertisements and that's one reason we encourage our members to sign in first.

Also be aware that many Anti-virus and security vendors bundle toolbars and other software with their products as a cost recoup measure. When a vendor includes an add-on such as a toolbar, they do so as a way to "pay per install" and recoup associated business costs. This typically is the reason for the pre-checked option. If pre-checked by default, that means you need to uncheck that option during installation if you don't want it. If you install too fast, you most likely will miss the "opt out" option and end up with software you do not want or need. The best practice is to take your time during installation of any program and read everything before clicking that "Install" or "Next" button.

Answer
I had posted a response to this question at BC, but for those who may not see it and to add to Quiteman's reply:

We have been approached many times to include installers or toolbars with our downloads and I always say no. That answer still stands, BC will never take someone's tool and wrap it with a toolbar or other installer to make money. This is not the experience we want, betrays the trust developers put in us to host their files, and thus this is WILL NOT ever happen at BleepingComputer.com.

With that said, some of our tools are mirrored from a developer's web site. If they include 3rd party tools in their freeware and do not alert us, then I unfortunately have no control over it. So far this has not happened, but if we were alerted to it and they are not obtrusive and easy to opt out of, we would allow it. If its deemed scammy, we will no longer host their files.
