    Yep, they actaully hosts the files themselfs, and keep only files that are okay, and some that are great I've been downloading from them...

    Danky,

    Thanks so much for letting me know. Now for one more website...

    C/Net Download.com

    Is this site okay to download games and such from? I was thinking of downloading some games for my children.

    Thanks again for the heads up.

    Blessings, Teresa

    Oh no.. I'd be cautious about download.com, some files are safe though.

    [update]
    It's actually debatable whether they are clean, they don't fiddle with the files themselves but they host some pretty bad software..

    If you want to know some good download spots, look here but read the comments first..
