Default Why We Hate Recommending Software Downloads To Our Readers

Windows software downloads are a mess. Many programs try to drag adware and other malicious junk onto your computer. Even safe programs we test sometimes turn to the dark side and start bundling junk later.

More experienced geeks may not fall for this stuff as often, but we have all kinds of readers here. We prefer to avoid putting our readers into situations where they could be infected because they downloaded something we recommended.
