Default Delta Toolbar?

Question: Why is there a reported malware toolbar bundled with the basic setup of pj64? Seems like a bit of cheeky advertising in the description of the downloader. Had to turn off my anti-virus just to dl pj64; understandable for a lone exe, but lo! it actually has malware attached. Wtf?

But seriously.

Why is this a thing that p64 is seemingly ok with?

Why are y'all bundling adware/malware with it?

Yeah what do you think this place looks like, GNU FOSS or something?
Only has one moderator anyway (IMO that's all that's needed and I mostly prefer it that way, but still, just sayin')


Couldn't be a huge dev team's idea to ad adware to the installer?
