Today marks the conclusion of the trial partnership with DuckDuckGo, the Internet privacy company, to host some of the downloads you get from PortableApps.com. DuckDuckGo's popular search engine, tracker blocking extension, and mobile app are built around user privacy and security, so it was a natural fit. While the download hosting has worked well and been a hit with users, it unfortunately doesn't line up with DuckDuckGo's current product focus. So, we're announcing an end to the trial.

McAfee Stinger has been removed from the Portable App Directory due to malware-like behavior. Running the current releases of McAfee Stinger on any Windows PC will automatically install the 'McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service' (mfevtps.exe) to the local machine without a prominent notice to the user. There is a reference to it only buried in the EULA. Once installed, these files are exceedingly difficult to remove.
