Status:
Adware

Explanation:
The setup file is part of the Soft32.com download and install manager. It is an ad-supported installer and attempts to get the user to install various adware toolbars, browser add-ons, game applications or other potentially unwanted programs. If a sponsored software offer such as a toolbar is installed it might change the User’s home page, default search settings and 404 traffic. Note, the software installed by Soft32 is probably safe, just the installer is unwanted.
