Why so much dishonesty - Free download is NOT free software

Q: Why so much dishonesty - Free download is NOT free software

Hi there

Why can't people be more honest on their websites -- as well as making it harder and harder to find REAL downloads without confusing extra offers / links to other programs with the real link buried deep down in an easy to miss website - I really hate the following that seems to be commonplace now -- FREE DOWNLOAD which implies FREE -- but the SOFTWARE most certainly Isn't but totally no mention of BUY / PAY on the site.

We should BOYCOTT those sites and make our feelings known --nothing wrong about people wanting to make a few bucks - especially these days with good jobs getting harder to find -but we can still be OPEN.

Preferred Solution: Why so much dishonesty - Free download is NOT free software

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Why so much dishonesty - Free download is NOT free software

Did you not know that the world is primarily run on the basis of greed, dishonesty, deception, and BIG GREEN BUTTONS?

Unfortunately I've had reason to come to conclude it's too often true.

I thought it would be a good idea in keeping with the overall secure free try free/free source software? and sites & Good movies legal to for goal of this site to Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software? start a thread to give people a list of legal and secure sites for downloading free or dirt-cheap movies music and software games I believe this would helpful in terms of not just telling people not to visit support pirating websites but to also give them other alternatives so that there wouldn't be a temptation to go there anyway And also for people like me that Don't want to steal but also don't want to pay more than I have to Master list of sites for free dirt cheap movies music and free free to try software Music Open Music Archive LEGAL NOTICE Contains music with expired copyright according Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software? to UK copyright law which states that the copyright expires years after the author's death As such some of the music may be considered pirated in countries with longer copyright periods For example The longest copyright period I know of is Mexico years after the author's death INCOMPETECH This guy composes his own music and gives it away for free Movies and or TV Hulu Movies and tv free with ads or for cost of membership watchable without ads http www epixhd com Free for Dishnetwork users Netflix Not completely free but VERY low price Software WARNING As stated by Quietman Many free Software Sites contain ads or link to sites containing ads with misleading download links to potentially dangerous software Be sure to click the correct download link which is usually smaller than the false link and it's usually a good Idea to avoid clicking on links with the words Reccomended or Important next to the link Even if the correct download link is selected Potentially unwanted programs PUPs May be installed if you click through without opting out Bleeping Computer Cnet Download Wide variety of software including games Game demos video and audio players editors etc Cnet installs PUPS practically as a rule unless you opt out MajorGeeks SnapFiles FileHippo Also has a utility for keeping programs up to date A list of unsafe legally questionable for free sites would probably be helpful as well

A:Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software?

That is a good question.
When I think about it Hulu does have movies.
I use Netflix.
I can use as I have Dishnetwork and can use that to be able to watch. Yup, just tested works good.

I've cancelled my subscription to Norton for a number of reasons. The cancellation date is effective January 7th. I've been looking at two different free anti virus programs--Bitdefender and Avast. I have Windows 7. Here's the problem, with Norton I had coverage for a lot of things besides anti virus protection. If I choose one of the free programs shouldn't I also download other programs to support the free program. If so, what programs are best suited for additional protection? I don't need a backup program. I was never able to convince Norton of that. Thanks for any suggestions.

It is misleading in the sense that CS2 is not free. It is a free download for those who have previously own CS2. It is a version of which no longer uses the activation servers. From what I hear you must register with Adobe to get the activation key. The keys are only given to consumers who have previously owned CS2.

...Bitdefender Free is one of the only clean antivirus vendors that does not come with any PUPs.

I therefore would like to know: Which more free anti-virus suites than Bitdefender Free do not bundle PUPs?

Okay so here's the thing fellas,
I'm not a computer genius by any means and all this computer talk makes no sense to me. I just want to know why I can't download iTunes 7 without having to pay the new subscription fee. Before I was just paying 99 cents/song. Since I rarely use iTunes, this works better for me than paying $20/mo. or whatever they're asking for. I have a Windows HP pavilion ze4800 laptop and I just need to download one song for my choir at college. Is there a way to upgrade for free and just continue to pay per song? BTW, I've already tried to directly upgrade through my music store and when I click the button nothing happens.

I keep getting a window popping up saying the free Avira 9 is due to expire and to download the free Avira 10, but when I click to download, the website doesn't load. I have tried searching for free Avira 10 download and I am taking to an Avira site that wants you to pay.

Is there anyway of downloading this Avria 10 free?


A:Free Avira 10 download

I've already downloaded the free Avira 10 about 18 hours ago. I downloaded and installed it without problems so I'm not sure why you are having trouble.

Following Avira's links, you end up here: CNET

Perhaps their servers were especially busy with the new release.

Hi everyone! I've been using FDM (Free Download Manager) for about one year now. Just recently, I visited its website and McAfee SiteAdvisor went wild. This time I went to check what McAfee had to say about FDM and it reported that there were about a billion malware infected downloads.
Can anyone verify where or not FDM is malware or a clean, helpful download program (it is great with the downloading speed; however, if it's malware, it has to go).

A:Free Download Manager

The top site in Google is a dangerous place to go when Googling "FDM". See if either one of these is the program you have. They earned the Green Check from Site Advisor.

Securalive free vs 360 Total Security vs Panda Free

A:Securalive free vs 360 Total Security vs Panda Free

360 Total Security Essentials is all that is needed. With Avira and Bitdefender engines enabled, RAM usage is high... but only when interface is open or scanning. It will only be a real problem if user always has interface open.

Protection far outweighs the RAM usage. Plus, 360 Essentials is very user friendly.

AV + Comodo Free Firewall Conflicts in Comodo completely Check that both Comodo and Avast are updated and Avast web shield ON Open Chrome and see what happens Results At first I thought it was fine google com was blocked Then I tried clicking on bookmarks yahoo com would open youtube com would open etc I was shocked to find that Comodo was letting these websites open even though chrome exe was blocked After doing some more research and realizing that this was a big problem and that many solutions did not work with avast being blamed or comodo being outdated or even that Win bit was limiting comodo I tested it Avast 7 free! AV + Comodo Free Firewall Conflicts again with web shield OFF I repeated the process of blocking chrome and opened google com and other websites This time all Avast 7 free!
