    I think that it is alway better to download any software from official websites as you do not risk to damage your PC in such a way. There are situations when you download software from any unofficial website and it seems that everything runs perfectly but you do not know what files would have been implemented to the file system of the downloaded software and what such software can bring to your PC. A few days ago I was looking for a free pc tune up. I have read a lot of reviews adn thoughts of experts. I have chosen some opinions but everyone recommends to download them form the official website especially when we speak about software that will have access to the whole system of your PC. Think about this.

    I couldn't agree with you more, cliffmorgan I would also add that if you download fror example exe. files from insecure sites then there is a high possibility to catch a virus like WannaCry or Petya which encrypt all your data on the PC and ask money to let you decrypt it if you don't pay you might lose all the information stored on your HDD/SSD.

    I agree, finding a decent alternative is possible. It just takes a little patience and effort to figure out the new program.

    I prefer not to use the software downloading website as you risk getting real spy apps that can be used to hack your devices and get your data such as email messages and so on. It is better to use the official website to download software and apps. Or, make a full scan of your PC or phone after using the unofficial downloading websites.

    Yes, it is a better idea to use the officila websites to download software but there are authoritative and trusted websites that allow you to download software without problems. And you can use the antiviruses to block the suspicious files.
