Thanks, Trend Micro, for your overzealous blockage.

Today’s definition of frustrating is finding out that your company’s new antivirus software considers the eMusic Download Manager to be a “virus” (ok, adware). Especially frustrating since I pay for that service and now can’t use it. The download experience in Firefox is dramatically worse without the download manager, as you lose the option to download a whole album at once; instead you have to click on each song, one at a time.

Emusic is a great service. It’s too bad that someone there made the poor decision of bundling the promo for their service in such a way that it hurts their image and worsens the user experience for their legitimate customers.
