XP Codec Pack 2. All rights reserved. It is very sad to see the developer posting phony positive reviews and discrediting and making personal attacks on the vast number of users who have had their systems infected by his software. Several people who have given bad reviews to this codec pack followed the "opt out" instructions and still had their systems infected right after installing this software.
The developer's canned response along with this phony positive review, which we can safely assume was written by a developer sockpuppet considering the highly defensive tone in which it was written only mentions the Yahoo browser hijack, and not the vast range of other malware secretly included with the codec pack.
It is highly likely that Yahoo arranged for the completely fraudulent SSL certification to be granted, seeing as how they're benefiting tremendously from the hijacked search traffic. None - this "codec" package is just a pretty wrapper for a big pack of malware. Even if you do a custom installation and opt out of having the lovely people at Yahoo hijack your browser and redirect all searches through them along with heavy duty tracking of your activity , this program will set you up with all sorts of nasty malware, which can take a very long time to clean up.
Get some hip waders, because you're going to be in it pretty deep if you make the mistake of downloading and installing this vile package of software. Hi, I'm the author of this package. If you read the description it states "The package is supported with optional adware shown in the second screen shot.
Then, in the screen shot it shows you how to decline the Yahoo search option. Everything is optional in the package. I installed this on my Windows 8 computer and it works well and is running virus free. Also, they give you the option to opt out of the spyware if you use custom install.
When I tried installing it on my Win 7 system Avast stopped the process and deleted the install file. Now Avast won't even let me download it.
