I use Fresh Download (from Fresh Devices) as a download manager. It's very efficient. However, I was alarmed that it has been identified in an anti-spyware scan I have run as being "adware". Is this an error? Does anybody have a view?
I came across this some months ago & was going to post on the PCA forum, but as it's virtually harmless let it go & have continued using it with no adverse effects. As the spynet link above mentions: "Threat risk: Low Risk. Advice: Keep. This is a low risk application and will not cause direct harm to your computer, removing it is not required."
I'd say the main thing to be careful about is the email address you give when you register to receive their codes. With ALL sites, you're not 100% sure of, it's good practice to give a 'disposeable' email address or one you can easily dump should it get spammed or ridden with viruses. G
