    There isn't any malware on it right? They give away full programs for free so I find it fishy.

    I've downloaded stuff from there a few times. They post a lot of screensavers. Just do a scan of the file before you run it to be safe.

    They're a good site, so far as I know. I've downloaded a couple of things from them, and just missed the full version of System Safety Monitor by a few minutes a while back.

    Most of their stuff isn't much, but check them every day. Occasionally, they have something worthwhile, like the full version of SSM that I just missed.

    I usually download off their site everyday, trying out the free apps and games they offer. Haven't had any malware alerts so far.

    GOTD seems to be a reputable site. No matter where I D/L apps from, I always run a scan prior to installing.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll wait till something cool pops up on it and give it a go.
