7-Zip Packages

What is 7-Zip Packages?

This is not the free commercial version of 7-Zip.

This is an adware bundle distributed through the EzDownloaderPro download manager. These packages are ad-supported that include the original program as well as the included advertiser software, mostly web browser extensions for search and coupons. This particular software is just an uninstaller that is designed to remove the bundled programs.

Form EzDownloader - "The downloader manages the entire download process of your software from start to finish. If any offers are accepted, the download manager will include a bundle uninstaller (named "[downloadname] Packages") that will help uninstall all the offers that were included with the download as a group instead of individually. We're able to offer free software because we are advertiser supported. When you download software, it gives our advertisers a chance to speak to you."
