Unlike 92% of all download sites, LO4D.com tests files against malware, viruses, trojans and crapware.
Many download sites list tens of thousands of software titles, many of which are either junk, useless or worse, infected with viruses. LO4D.com won't have any of that and has delisted over half of all titles in our database.
Sorting between freeware and non-free software titles in a variety of different categories is very simple; Just click the "Freeware" tab!
LO4D.com makes a very strong effort to make sure all files are tested for viruses and malware. We do not alter test results, nor do we use sneaky "installer" or "download manager" schemes.
LO4D.com is not in any way affiliated with any software developer, affiliate or toolbar programs, installer or downloader schemes.
LO4D.com is a download directory designed for the average person. Whether you're looking to use modern technology to simplify your life or simply a program to help you out with a specific task.. the Internet makes it possible to find programs which can help you out.
Simple enough, right? Not exactly. There is a huge industry out there which makes figurative bucket loads of cash by installing malware, adware, viruses and other badware on your system. We thought it was time to offer an alternative to installing "installers" which do nothing more than charge you for free software and free trials.
We provide virus tests, advisories, downloads and reviews for everybody and without bias if we think it's something useful.
LO4D.com is completely unaffiliated with any software developer, affiliate network, spammer, malware developer, "installer" scheme or anything of the sort.
To date, LO4D.com has protected netizens from 307,080 infected files.
