    Good catch Slack. The original *Open Source* version of Snappy has been forked and is available malware-free on a new domain:
    http://www.snappy-driver-installer.org/index.html

    I'll find and nuke other references to the bad domain that is now hosting the evil version.

    Well can't say I was paying attention much to what domains where, but that seriously geeks don't need to mess with this kinda crap, good or bad software, it's just BSWARE if you ask me, so learn to do it yourself and stay out of trouble... LOL

    It's still useful for geeks because it allows batch installation from offline storage. So people who like to wipe their systems can get up and running more quickly. Read the Reddit thread you linked and you'll see a lot of people swear by it.

    Hmm, I say if you like to wipe and install often, which by the way is an approach I follow, I say use Clonezilla instead.

    Install Windows, put in your drivers, make a clonezilla backup, now you're good to go everytime and a HELL of a lot simpler, to do and use...

    Takes all of like 3-5 mins to make a backup and the same time to reinstall the image back to the system, nothing beats this!

    http://clonezilla.org/

    Just burn to USB and use it, best not to try and go crazy reading all the info online unless you want to, it's easy to just simply use it, on screen info is pretty self explaintory...

    *shrug* I don't use it myself as I generally find clean installs more annoying than they're worth but I won't begrudge anyone else what works for them.

    Well if you mean, as I'm assuming, clean all the way back to the beginning, I get this.

    But this is just a backup image app, back it up where you like...

    Install System > Drivers > Apps > Etc... > Happy > Make Backup

    So make a backup somewhere in the process of where you like, the idea, as I'm sure you are aware of is that it's all done when everything is clean, so you always put back a clean image, where ever in the install process you happen to make it at...
