DailyMotion made it more difficult to download their videos.  The download sites were just too darn slow so I downloaded the newest version of Freemake Video Downloader which enabled downloading from DailyMotion on Windows Operating Systems.  However, I was forced to accept a bundled software called Pureleads to enable the Freemake Video Downloader 3.7  installation.

So I ran Malwarebytes to get rid of some of the suspicious items then I uninstalled PureLeads through Windows uninstall/removal process.

Malwarebytes has a free version

If you have already installed Malwarebytes previously, be sure to right click and run the program as an administrator and then click on updates before running a scan.  A Quick scan found a few new suspicious items after downloading Freemake Video Converter with PureLeads.
(Full scan did not show anymore suspicious items)

To remove Pure Leads from Windows7
go to Start, Control Panel, Programs, uninstall a Program
scroll down to PureLeads then click on uninstall

If you choose to watch videos on DailyMotion without ads, be sure to use Adblock as an extension on your browser.
