Hello. I wasn’t sure if you folks would know anything regarding the safety of open source freeware here. I was wondering if there is a site that lists freeware known to have viruses and malware, so I could double check them (from an unbiased source) before I tried to install them. I have gotten virus protection and computer cleaners in the past, and always ended up with a sluggish computer and sometimes even a virus or Trojan horse.
There are two programs I am interested in downloading, but I’ve been hesitant and haven’t really found a reliable source of information on them (most review sites and “list” sites turned out to just be trying to sell a product).
If anyone knows of a resource for looking up open source freeware reports, I’d be grateful to get that link
BTW, the two I’m looking at are IObits Uninstaller and Everything file search program…in case anyone has any info on those two.
