WAIT A MINUTE WHY IS IT INSTALLING WEATHER BUG!  Cra*

This is why I like:

http://www.freewarefiles.com/

It's an excellent source of freeware. Most of their software is sponsorship-free although addon toolbars etc. are not absolutely prohibited. However, they must have a clear and reasonable opt-out.

Of course, there have been some abuses but FreewareFiles seem to be diligent about nuking the listing as soon as someone reports the problem.

It's a source I have come to trust over quite a few years.

Interestingly, I see they are currently hosting Avast! I think there's a chance that their download is clean. Vendors want these listings and they will remove the crapware when it's necessary to get/maintain them.
