    Brings up another thing - after doing these surveys and such, run an anti-virus program on full check. Want to make certain your computer isn't being infected. Sometimes the pages may have a virus or keylogger on it - not placed by the company but by another party.

    Additional thought - if you see an offer that you had been considering doing already (say signing up for Hulu Plus), why not take the time to do so and earn some tokens? Best example is the Local Deals and choose a Groupon one that you've thought about doing.
    That's how they earn money. They add thousands of toolbars to programs to gain money. Toolbars isn't malware, however it is annoying, that's true. I recommend to use "IOBIT Uninstaller" to remove toolbars.

    Added a small text. "Caution: Sometimes you won't get any Tokens or reward for watching a video, even if you disabled your AdBlocker. Also, sometimes you get only rewarded once for a video, if the video is available on the next day, you usually won't get rewarded anymore."

    I've gone from having 17 gold to 243 gold in the space of about 4 hours.

    After downloading the app and getting the gold I've simply deleted it as Im not interested in playing it. As the requirement for the app has been met (Download and start the app), will this be OK, or am I likely to see the gold taken back off me at a later date? Technically I've done everything that has been asked.
    Well nearly a month on from this I've been continually farming gold by completing surveys and downloading apps, and now have 2015 gold sat in my T11 account. I've set up a dummy email address for the surveys, and put in fake phone numbers when requested etc... but other than that I've done everything to the letter as requested to complete the offers.

    I've also managed to get all my 22 players to be 6 star, with a few going to 7, after getting an entire squad via the scout. Add to that I've built up a fair bit of my stadium and facilitys.

    I guess I've farmed near 5000 gold in the past month or so. It seems a little too easy really, but so far it seems to be working.

    This.

    Matomy, tokenads, etc...don't care what kind of program is put up because they are making money from it. I scanned a lot of these programs and they are filled with adware/viruses!! Stay away people... getting your computer hacked isn't worth a few tokens

    No but you don't even know what you are downloading. You might download the "toolbar" which tracks what sites you go on and it takes your personal information. Would you trust a program that you never heard of before?

    A few weeks ago, I remember someone downloading a program from there and all their registry keys were manipulated... They came on the forum to complain and the offer was removed... But it was too late for the guy who had to fix his computer for days...

    This isn't an attack against you, I'm just saying.. you and many others don't realise the potential risks with programs like these.

    Indeed, there are risks, but I've never downloaded or seen any malicious software from or on surveys after years of using that service. The survey-offering companys have strict guidelines, atleast SupersonicAds and SponsorPay. I don't think they would allow such programs.

    You must differentiate the surveys and the advertisements. Some advertisements could lead to a website which contains malware, as example clicking on "You're the 999.999 User on this website, you just won $123456789". Those websites often host malware.

    Sometimes toolbars are included, that's right, but usually they don't do anything bad and you always have the option to check a box that you don't want to download a toolbar.

    Atleast they have removed the "malicious" offer, I wonder if there was proof that these registry changes were caused by a download from a survey. I may also suggest the use of a virtual computer or Sandboxie, if you run programs through a virtual computer or Sandboxie, nothing will be changed on your computer.

    If you actually google most of these downloads, you'll find that 90% of them are malware or viruses.

    Is it really worth the hassle of trying to remove these over a few miserable tokens?

    Downloads are a waste of time.
