Unable to download - redirected

When I try to update my HWiNFO64, after I click download I get a page that wants to download an unzipper (which I don't need) or something for safe browsing (which I don't need, being well-protected) or MyPony (which is dubious and unwanted). How do I get a download without any unwanted stuff?

And shame on you for foisting this stuff.

You probably were confused by an advertisement and clicked that one. Some advertisers are too invasive.
Please check a bit below that Ad and you should see 2 buttons: "DOWNLOAD INSTALLER" (green) and "DOWNLOAD PORTABLE" (blue).

You clicked on the Google Ad. I don't choose which ads are displayed there, I only offer space for them and the ads come thru Google network.
Just look below that and you'll see the two other buttons.

.. and those other two are the right ones.
I'm sorry for this confusion, but I don't feel guilty, since I don't choose which which Ads are displayed there.

The text "BrowserSafeGuard" you posted belongs to the Ad. Google can change only their dedicated region, which is the space between the text above and the download buttons - this can be clearly seen on the second screenshot you posted.

The last screenshot is how it should look, certainly. But the other screenshots I posted were seen on previous screen refreshes..

Yes, I have configured the ad styles to have a border like on your last screenshot (so they are easier to distinguish), but it seems not all of them keep this rule.
