Hello,

I am just about to buy and download the Pe-2 add-on. However, I have heard of several horror stories with that Bounty box spyware and also have seen the UBI apology.

Before I make a final decision to buy....my questions:

1.As of now (ie. today May 12th), have the problems that were there in the beginning with the download/install been solved?

2.Do we still have to have the Bounty box spyware as part of the download/install?

I want the add-on, but not the headaches and please no spyware. What should I do?

Also, are there any preventive mesures that can be taken against such things as having to reinstall windows, or reinstall Il-2/FB or loosing all of the skins...etc. ?

Thanks

Also if you do download this software then READ the information carefully.

Also as (too my knowledge) the boonty download software is still a feature make sure you check its settings before you begin the main download.

Specificaly once boonty is installed check its settings (right click on icon in system tray) and disable the settings such as

delete download after install

and

Auto install once download complete

Make sure you select english as your language

Save all documentation mails and web based information you recieve during the purchase process i.e copy and paste to word pad notepad or similar

ABOVE ALL READ BEFORE YOU CLICK NEXT AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING

YOU CAN CHANGE THE SETTINGS OF BOONTY BEFORE YOU START YOUR DOWNLOAD AND I SUGGEST YOU DO SO BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE DOWNLOAD

OH YEAH I AM NOT SHOUTING ITS JUST REALY BLOODY LOUD IN HERE
