Chess game download for windows 8.1

  tonyq 09:15 03 Mar 2015

Hi all, I have recently cleared a lot of malware from a friends laptop. As he plays a bit of chess he is now wanting to find a Chess Game that he can play on his Windows 8.1 Laptop but is frightened of downloading more malware by searching on Google ect. Could any of you please recommend a safe site to download a chess game? I ask this as I am not into games/gaming and your advice would be much appreciated .

I gave him a call, he said that he didn't think it was in the games app but would check the next time he went on the laptop. I'm still waiting for a reply.

would you say "going to the Store in App's" is the safest way of trying to avoid downloading any malware?
