First some background: A couple of years ago SourceForge started adding adware into executables stored on their site.
Because of how they covertly added the adware without asking for permission (and other reasons), their way of handling the process led to the "DevShare adware controversy" and eventually a conflict with the makers behind Gimp, Nmap, VLC, and other projects.
Now considering SourceForge behavior in this matter I do not consider them sufficiently trustworthy and prefer to download either stand-alone zip archives or plain source files (which I compile myself).
Unfortunately neither stand-alone zip nor source code is actually available for all projects.
So for this reason I wanted to ask if there is a standard way to block or delete any SourceForge installed adware? For example, is the adware tied to specific dll(s) that they bundle in the executable?
