    Default Popular Download Sites

    ive been using file hippo, download.com and softpedia for a few months now. ive noticed that a few files from softpedia have some kind of viruses attached to them .. but which one is your choice for secure downloads?

    I usually use filehippo or the "manufcturer" site. What is the problem with Softpedia? I think they have several mirrors. Maybe you picked the wrong one.

    I have to admit I'm a big CNet-head! When I get a new PC or have a fresh install it's one of the first places I bookmark. A few of my professors have steered me towards tucows a time or too and it's not that bad either but doesn't seem to me to be the one-stop-shop that download.com is.

    Filehippo is the most minimalist site of them all, and hence i use filehippo. The download's already started with filehippo by the time softpedia's website opens!

    Default DownloadBestSoft is my favourite

    I am using DownloadBestSoft and that's because I was searching on the Internet and I downloaded a program from their website. I wanted to ask something about an antivirus and I contacted them. Instead of waiting for days for an email, I received a friendly email from them and they also created an how-to article for me, lol. It was nice plus their website it's not full of ads and it's loading really fast for me
