    Notes on its download page:

    Are apps whose installer modifies your search engine preferences acceptable?

    Your choice. If you want your stuff (potentially) changed, then download it. I prefer VLC though if you are looking for a media player.

    I assume you're reporting this as an annoying or harmful ad, right? If so, the admins will take a look at getting it removed from the ad pool.

    Yes, that's why I was reporting it here. I didn't know if there was a policy banning advertisements of apps with "benefits". :eek:
