Partnership 4.5/4.8 details: AVG

PeaZip installers for Windows, from 4.5 up to release 4.8, were released in partnership with AVGpartnership installer, offering optional installation of AVG Security Toolbarpeazip avg (with optional AVG Secure Search homepage and search provider) during the installation process.
This partnership is meant to suggest users high quality free security software to efficiently protect their systems with state of art solutions.

This partnership applies only to PeaZip for Windows and PeaZip for Windows 64 bit installers.
All other packages does not feature advertising bundle: Linux packages, PeaZip Portable packages, and PeaZip installers (plain) packages.
Plain installer packages without third party bundle offers, are published on peazip.org download pages, and on Google CodeOpen Source, SourceForgefree software and Mininovapeazip torrents.

How does the bundle works
  • The installation process offers to install AVG Security Toolbar, displaying complete and correct information and options about the recommended software in the offer screen
    • at any time during the installation the user can return to the offer screen and change choice
  • Installation of the partner's bundle is optional (PeaZip installation can be completed without installing the bundle) and can be declined or customized by the user in order to install only desired components, or no budled component at all
    • the user's choice will never be ignored or overridden by the installer
  • If the user accept the recommendation of AVG Security Toolbar or AVG Secure Search (homepage or search provider), open browser's instances will be closed to allow installation of the AVG components
  • Once installed, bundled components can be removed by the user, safely and cleanly, in no way the user will be hampered in uninstalling or otherwise modifying the installed software

How to avoid/remove third parts bundle
  • Use a non-partnership package, i.e. plain installers (linked in download page for PeaZip and PeaZip 64 bit) or PeaZip Portable: they does not contain partnership bundle.
  • If a partnership installer is used, the recommendation is not mandatory for PeaZip installation and can be declined: user choice is never overridden
  • Once installed, any change can be reverted
    • AVG Security Toolbar can be unistalled from control panel, or can be disabled from the browser(s) - please note that disabling is not equivalent to uninstalling, as the component is disabled but not removed from the system and can be re-enabled when desired without repeating the installation
    • AVG Secure Search homepage can be changed from the browser(s) setting a new homepage, e.g in IE from Tools > Internet Options, in FF in Options > General, in Chrome in Settings > Homepage
    • AVG Secure Search search provider can be changed from the browser(s), either removing, disabling or changing priority of the AVG search provider.

Reporting problems
Please report to me any problem and suggestion either with PeaZip partnership installer or the partner product.
When reporting issues please try to be more informative and detailed as possible, i.e. specify details of operating system and browser (language, 32 or 64 bit, version, service pack level, etc), and the complete way to replicate a problem you experienced, so me and/or the partner can resolve the reported problem.


Partnership 3.7/4.4 details: OpenCandy

PeaZip installers for Windows, from 3.7 up to release 4.4, were with OpenCandylicensing advertising module, that display ads during the installation of the software.
It is similar to Google AdSense, except it displays advertisements (promoting software from qualified partners of the advertising network) during the installation of a software instead than on websites.
Partners includes well known entities like Microsoft (Internet Explorer, Bing toolbar), Real Player, AVG Antivirus, AOL, Nitro PDF Reader, StumbleUpon, Wakoopa and many others.
This partnership is meant as alternative to donations and online ads to help PeaZip project to get needed funding in order to keep on the development, provide a quality hosting, and machines for testing, porting and optimizing the application on newer platforms, even if they have a small market share and may not generate enough return to keep the platform-specific development active by themselves.

This partnership applies only to PeaZip for Windows and PeaZip for Windows 64 bit installers.
All other packages does not feature advertising bundle: Linux packages, PeaZip Portable packages, and PeaZip installers (plain) packages.
Plain installer packages without third party bundle offers, are available from PeaZip for Windows download page, and on Google CodeOpen Source, SourceForgeOpen Source and MininovaOpen Source.

How does the advertising module works:

No ads outside the installer

A singe advertisement is shown, during last step of the software installation.
Once the software is installed, the user not receive any more advertisements.

Recommended software can always be declined: installers failing to work that way are not autorized to partner with OpenCandy advertising network
Recommended software is not needed to install or run PeaZip, so can always be declined.
No unwanted software is installed: user can always accept or decline the recommendation, the user is in full control of what is installed, and in no way the user's selection can be overridden or hampered by the installer.
If preferred, partnership installers can be launched with /NOCANDY parameter to disable running OpenCandy advertising module at all.

Recommended software can be removed at any time: it is a prerequisite for advertisers for being eligible of being featured in OpenCandy network
Recommended software are separate products from third party and have their own separate uninstallers.
Please refer to the third party programs' documentation for removing or modifying third party software, usually uninstallers are available from Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, or in Start > All Programs (in each program's folder), or reachable from the web browser for toolbars and browser add-ons.
In no way the user is hampered when uninstalling or otherwise modifying the installed software.

Advertisers are selected by the author
OpenCandy platform allows partner developers to select advertisers eligible to display ads in their own installers.
I block advertisers which fails to address my personal requirements of reputation and usefulness, and any feedback is welcome to improve the quality of the recommendations.

Developers participating to OpenCandy network must comply well defined quality guidelines, see OpenCandy Software Network Policieslicensing, for more information see OpenCandy FAQlicensing and OpenCandy Privacy Policylicensing

Before publication, all packages, including partnership installers, are thoroughly scanned with multiple antimalware tools to ensure they are clean of any malware or malware-like features.
Moreover, to utterly enforce user's security, most download websites that host or links PeaZip packages does the same, providing independent scan certifications, see in example download mirrors page.

Reporting problems

Please report to me and to OpenCandy any problem and suggestion either with OpenCandy advertising module and about advertisers.
When reporting issues please try to be more informative and detailed as possible, i.e. specify details of operating system and browser (language, 32 or 64 bit, version, service pack level, etc), and the complete way to replicate a problem you experienced.
OpenCandy needs this information in order to keeping providing a good service, fix bugs and be informed about developers' and advertisers' behavior with end users.

I can filter recommendations to be displayed in the installer, so please inform me about low quality or low reputation advertisers so they can be avoided to be shown at all.
To offer interesting, useful and safe software to end users is important to me as it is important for end users to receive only quality recommendations: only the constant feedback of a community can make this network improve in the long run, exactly as community feedback is fundamental for running a good software project.
Please keep in mind OpenCandy advertising module is an alternative funding source for PeaZip project, you are never forced to use it, as alternative packages without third party bundle are available, partnership installers can be started disabling the advertising module (/NOCANDY), and in any case the recommendation can be declined, as accepting it is not required to complete PeaZip's installation.
Moreover, you are free to use, distribute and modify PeaZip in all its parts as it is Open Source software, and in this way it fundamentally belongs to the community.

How to avoid third parts software
  • Use a non-partnership package, i.e. plain installers or PeaZip Portable, they does not contain OpenCandy advertising module.
  • If a partnership installer is used, it can be started with /NOCANDY parameter to disable OpenCandy advertising module.
  • If a partnership installer is used, the recommendation is not mandatory for PeaZip installation and can be declined: user choice is never overridden by the correctly implemented adverstising module.
  • If a recommended software was installed, refer to third party for uninstalling it.

I would like to be immediately notified when are experienced problems regarding those critical areas:
  • Partner's installer module must give complete and correct information about the recommended software
  • Partner's installer module must never override user's choice to accept or decline the recommendation
  • Partner's installer module and third party recommended software must not employ any technique that is considered harmful by anti-malware programs: in this case, unless it is a false positive or the claim is dismissed by wider consensus of most reliable anti-malware software, the problem must be fixed as soon as possible
  • Third party recommended software should give complete and correct information about how to uninstall it cleanly, and provide a standard uninstaller
In case of any doubt, I recommend to double-check any suspicious file or URL, i.e. with a good online free scanner like VirustotalOpen Source which employs multiple antivirus/antimalware engines for maximum security and to minimize false positive reports, or URLVoidOpen Source that merge various online information sources about web domains.
