MaxDownload is available for download on several pages such as openshop.org.ua and software.informer.com. MaxDownload is promoted as a program that helps users download files of any size and gives them direct links to the files at a download folder. However, several user complaints indicate that the application may be suspicious. MaxDownload is possibly developed by iLivid – a free download manager which, according to reports, is ad-supported. Ad-supported software often comes in bundled packages and thus, it may enter the system in a veiled manner.
Description and Distribution of MaxDownload
If not downloaded by choice, MaxDownload may have been downloaded together with another freeware product. For instance, if the user chooses to download iLivid and doesn’t pay attention to its download agreement, he may end up with MaxDownload installed on his PC. However shady it may seem to some users, software bundling is not an illegal practice. By opting for the automatic installer and fast-clicking on the ‘next’ button, he automatically agrees to download additional products. Always choose the custom/ advanced option and you will stay away from unwanted and potentially harmful downloads.
Once installed on the system, MaxDownload may cause several issues on the system. Various tracking technologies may be applied to the user’s browser without his knowledge or permission. Tracking technologies may be plain old cookies or web beacons, or Flash cookies also known as Local Shared Objects.
If such technologies are use, the user’s online movements from page to page will be followed, and personal and non-personal information about him may be collected. Another downside may be the display of pop-up windows and advertisements.
