Downloads are bundled with third-party programs. Choose the Direct Download link, if available.
It has been my go to for free software for over 10 years.
Avoid using Cnet Download.com, because downloads are bundled with crapware/malware!
Just do a google-search on the subject or read more here:

Disappointed more every year.
CNET Download.com has been my go-to for the past 15+ years for sotware. Over the course of time, they've moved more towards making money than providing a useful, friendly service that also can make money. From forcing the use of their own installer through which to download software, to now not providing a quick easy overview of software at a glance from which to make an informed decision.
Search and select a software on Download.com, then experience the disappointment of not being able to view screenshots, a video, a feature list or anything with enough informative detail to base a do or don't for the download decision.
Be ready to be overwhelmed with advertising to trick you into click everywhere as part of your effort to get informed on your search result.
Such a pity.
I always got there with a adblock on
