Found a really great site for tons of freeware. Some of it is pretty advanced for IT people but a lot of it is pretty simple utilities and other types of programs for intermediate-skilled people who just like to tweak their computer. Also be sure to check the Links section for even more. I downloaded probably 20 programs. Scanned them with my antivirus and they came up clean but Malwarebytes Pro flagged a couple of the password hacking tools understandably. Everything else came up clean.

I can only find limited info on them, a single Wikipedia article in Polish. I tend to steer away from freeware as much as possible just simply to avoid potential malware. I'll look on Sourceforge first.

Like I said, I scanned the unzipped folders with both Malwarebytes Pro and Emirlsoft Antivirus/Spyware and only got red flags for the password hack tools. And I would expect that. I'll probably try running those two in a sandbox first.

And your googling sucks. :action-sm

They've got a page on Download.Cnet.com. I think that gives them some credibility.

That guy is legit. I've been using NirCmd for a while now to do Windows API shit in a batch file instead of actually having to write code.

He certainly doesn't look like he's up to no good
