Security Warnings on Download

Microsoft has improved security in the last Windows versions, but in doing so has also added some new warnings.

When you download an App from the Internet you will be asked if you want to Save or Run the file.

You should choose Save - running anything from a download location is almost always a bad idea. Additionally, you will not have a backup copy after the download if you run it from the Internet. Also, it is better to save the Apps that you download from the Internet (no matter from what website) to be able to scan them for viruses before running them.

So save it, e.g. on the desktop or whatever other location suits you.

When you run the file you will see a second security warning, from the Windows User Account Control (UAC):

We develop and sell software since 1995. From any public "WHOIS" service (e.g. you can verify that was registered in 1997. It's not yesterday. Unlike most of the other Internet Companies that were born at the end of the 20th century, we are still in business - so you can definitely trust us!

You can also use to check the downloaded App. VirusTotal is a free service that analyzes files and URLs and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware. VirusTotal scans files with about fifty different antivirus.
