"Sorry for delay reply, because from 2015-2-16 to 2015-3-2 is the most important Chinese Holiday , I went back to my hometown, there is no network connection, So I found Jimking PM just a moment ago. Installmonetizer is a big Professional provider of third-party software bundle, it can help we continue develop these fantacy Free software Full time, and pay for the fee of website host (homepage and widget download gallery) and domain name . I've done a detailed test, you can click on the decline , and MUST uncheck to remove the check third-party installation. I think that there maybe some misunderstanding.
BUT, I think maybe yereverluvinuncleber is right , because We LOVE XWidget, She is like my baby... So I will remove the Installmonetizer from XWidget. I will go to find another Full Time Job of development to Breadwinner and pay for fee of website host and I will do my best to continue develop XWidget2.0 in the time of off work. Thanks to all the people that love XWidget , specifically thanks Jimking."
As a result of Tony's promise I will remove my earlier post as I do not want to do any long term harm to the Xwidget crew that have created a superb engine. I have promised a donation as soon as the clean version is posted to their site.
To let you know what this really means - Some of us create widgets for the windows desktop, one of those engines is the XWidget engine. Our widgets run using this engine. I have created several widgets using the Xwidget engine and I have spent a lot of time on them. It means that you can safely install the Xwidget engine and my widgets without fear of adware/malware or any nastiness from the net installing at the same time. We have taken one source of web-nastiness and removed it!
These are the widgets I have had converted to the Xwidget engine so far.
I suggest you only download the Xwidget engine from my site for the moment until the compromised version of the engine is removed from the Xwidget site and is replaced by a good one.
My scanned and safe Xwidget engine zip (the good one) is here: lightquick.co.uk/downloads/xwi…
