I am new. I am old, 43, I think my 5 year old can do this better. He plays Minecraft through our XBox360. It took me forever
to figure out why I could not download him new maps. I do not know if I can yet. The old Horizon32 stopped recognizing
the usb drive. I could insert it (in 4 different slots), it would show that green bar at the bottom that it Horizon was reading it
and then…? Nothing! LOL.
Hopefully, with this new download it will work, but that is not why I am really posting in this forum. When I did finally find
the info that said I needed this new Horizon program, I clicked on the download button and…It was flagged by all 3 of my
ad/spamware programs. So I did not download it. I deduced, maybe Horizon did that to people who are not registered, so
I registered an account and tried again.
Again, I got the spam/adware hit from 3 different programs I run on this laptop. I went ahead and over road these programs
and started the download anyway. It downloaded. Clicked on the executable file and… the 3 ad/spam programs again with
the alerts. I over road them again.
We get to the actual download screen where they ask you if you want the standard download (recommended) or the
advanced. I would normally do the standard, but was curios because of all of the ad/spam hits. In the "Advanced Option"
what option did I have?
I can tell you, I had 4 options, everyone one of them were additional programs that were going to be added to my
computer that had nothing to do with horizon. I don’t even remember what they were at this point except, really?
These are the “Advanced” options? One was a program that would install a program that gave me 1000 game apps,
one was a social something or other and the other 2 were just such crap, I do not even remember what they were.
And before all of you jump on me, I do understand free websites and how they make money off of advertising, but this
wasn’t advertising. This was malicous software tagged by 3 different virus protection software programs.
I would hope, Horizon, that you would see this is NOT the way to go. Your company, this website has already been
tagged as a malicious website that installs unwanted malicious software.
