    Hi,

    Lately I've been having a hard time finding old versions of freeware that in most cases is no longer developed. This, of course is just a matter of convenience, as anyone can find things if tries hard enough, but I thought that it might be helpful for our community to have a place where we can find old versions of almost any security app we like. I thought about a couple of rules or policies very simple to follow.

    1) ONLY freeware allowed, this is in order to avoid getting into licensing/cracking issues.
    2) Installers must be uploaded to free file hosting services, this in order to preserve wilder's bandwidth.
    3) Contributions must provide detailed info as possible such as version, SHA, MD5 and a link to VT results for the installer (not VT results directly)
    4) There must be an explicit warning about opt-in/opt-out options in the installer (toolbars, etc...)

    In hopes of input from LWM and mods, I also invite wilders member to express their opinions freely.

    Ragrds.
