How we test files on


Every time a new file is submitted to through, it is scanned multiple times to ensure it is virus-free and complies with ourĀ Principles of Quality. We rely on industry-standard third-party apps to safeguard our catalog. If one of the tools we use determines that a virus or malware component exists in the application, we will decline it for listing in our download library.

As of 4/27/2005, we removed all products from that were identified as containing any form of malware. The process eliminated well over 600 products from our library. Despite our vigilance, we can't guarantee that our library is 100% malware-free. If you find a program on that contains a virus or malware, please let us know and we will investigate your claim and take action as appropriate.
