It's no longer just a bundleware. Even if you set all not to install it will install bitcoiner malware into Temp (important.exe) with guarding (file.exe) that runs it all the time and loads CPU 100%. It's a pure malware now.

It's good but it's a pain in the butt trying to do simple things like replacing a single resource. It's more for complex tasks.
