Why my addons and dictionaries has been removed or disabled after installing GimpShop?

Posted

Hey there

I tired to install GimpShop, which suppose to be already customised to look like a PSH version of Gimp. However the installer makes some funny business and all the crapware possible: toolbars, addons etc. I stopped the installation and removed the crapware using AdwCleaner, SpyBot 2.0 and Eset Online Scanner. However, my dictionaries, add-ons in both Firefox and Gimp were either disabled or removed.

So, here are my questions:

1. Why where they disabled or removed? BTW I couldn't reactive them. 2. Why Firefox is the only browser that installs without asking addons form freeware installers (which very often you can not uncheck their installations)? Chrome has less crap and Opera never has anything unwanted installed. 3. Why Firefox keeps hanging up ale slowing down the system when there is only one heavy page? Or keeps freezing when Adobe Flash in YouTube constantly crashes?

1. Why where they disabled or removed? BTW I couldn't reactive them.

I am guessing it was part of the installation that was stopped/removed. Something may have been corrupted.

2. Why Firefox is the only browser that installs without asking addons form freeware installers (which very often you can not uncheck their installations)? Chrome has less crap and Opera never has anything unwanted installed.
