   I believe that back in the olden days, actually had only freeware on it.  Then CNET (CNET is a publisher of computer magazines) purchased it and redirected it to is actually through the years has become quite commercialized. is a huge website of software but since they tend to rank software higher the more money their developers pay them, the truly free programs end up at the bottom of the list or not even listed.  I do go there once in a very great while to find software but I am usually disappointed with what I find.  What I usually find there is trial or demo ware that seems to be free but which actually is quite expensive to purchase and usually require yearly repurchasing.
   There are plenty of software sites out there and there are many freeware sites which will only list programs that are totally free.  One such site is  I wonder if anyone else has any favorite freeware sites?

Just as a general rule, wherever you find freeware (or any program you download, in fact) -- be sure to scan it with your anti-virus, your anti-spyware and your anti-malware programs before trying to install it.

If you have one of the good anti-evil programs, you can right-click on the file in question, and the context menu will contain an item, "Scan With [your protection program]"

Nasty people sometimes attach ugly little critters to those innocent-looking gems.

   I never scan any freeware programs that I get from freeware sites.  Many software sites scan all of the files before they list them on their site.  Even if they don't, they would quickly find out from their users that a file has a virus in it and would remove that file.
   Now if you download a file from a crack, hacker, warez, or similar site, then, yes, there is a possibility that it could have a virus or something in it.

   I would like to correct my first post.  I just checked out and it is not the same thing as  I am sure that it was when I made the first post, but maybe something happened since then.
