i'm about to download "sticky notes" [from a previous post,with recommended sites.i recently had a virus,so am paranoid about downloading now.when i go to download the software i get the usual "are you sure,this site hasnt got a certificate etc"....i guess this is precautionary,should i carry on?before i had the virus,this didnt concern me!it does now!

If you are paranoid about downloading a virus then after you download your software, right click and scan with whatever antivirus etc programs you have.
You could also instal this click here which will flag up the site if it is dodgy.
You could only download from sites such as click here
