The SqueezeQueens team constantly endeavours to make your download experience as happy as possible.....





However, we have no control over the policies of external file-hosts. Many of these file-hosts try to trick you into downloading their own "Download Managers".....






These are generated, when you fail to un-check the little pre-ticked box on the download page.....







If you don't un-check the box, you are presented with a .exe file, rather than the hot scissor-chick clip you expected.....





These Download Managers may contain P.U.P.'s.....





Another classic PUP candidate, is an application called iLivid. Once again, this is presented in a way as to trick you into clicking it, rather than the actual download link.....





The bottom-line is, be careful out there. We are uploading to the the best, fastest free file-hosts we can find. However, nowhere is safe from these dubious and potentially malicious applications, when the opportunity arises for companies to make a quick buck. Learn to differentiate between your .exe and your .txt file-extensions and you won't go far wrong....."Happy Downloading!"
