What is EZDownloader?

EZDownloader is a download manager the bundles various offers including web browser toolbars (Babylon Toolbar, Funmoods and Search.us) and extensions as well as various other potentially unwanted software programs. It wraps various 3rd party software from the download site www.ez-download.com in order to deliver these bundled offers.

The software is bundled as a utility offer through the Web-Pick InstalleRex monetization platform (pay-per-install) and signed via Rafael Leviev and Ivan Kostin.

From the developer's web site:
"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."
