A while ago I was sent a stuffit file (does anybody really still use this format?). Anyway, I had to go find the 'free' expander.
Trying to install the expander was greeted with the need to enter an administrator password, huh, really, No thank you!
I opened the package and manually dragged out the stuffit expander application, which worked just fine without being 'installed'.
To get the expander you have to jump through hoops on the web site and agree to be spammed, then when you get actual download they want your administrator password to install all kinds of more spam.
The expander can be run as a stand alone application without being 'installed', yet the company do not want to do this, they want administrator access to your machine to do as they please.
DO NOT PERPETUATE THIS COMPANIES SPAM MILL. AVOID CREATING STUFFIT FILES AND CREATE ZIP FILES INSTEAD.
THEY CLAIM IT IS FREE, BUT IS GIVING AWAY YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION AND ADMINISTRATOR ACCESS TO YOUR MACHINE REALLY FREE??????
