i have used nirsoft utilities (along with sysinternals) for years. up until now (2013) it simply one of the best. no sign of it to become junk/rotten/ad-ware like some others. though i guess it does acceptable page view ad (who doesn't do that today anyway?).
some (questionable) scanners might give a false alert, that's ok considering the nature of nirsoft's utilitities.
anyone here tries to discredit nirsoft while promoting his site almost certainly is scammer.
Nirsoft is an excellent source of all kinds of free utilities for Windows, ranging from password recovery to network information, file types management to Internet Explorer cleanup.
Very trustworthy site, no malware or similar.
A few scanners have tagged this site for containing password viewers, etc. Well that is what a password recovery tool is supposed to do!
The report above regarding malware is almost certainly wrong.
They make a number of utilities of various degrees of usefulness. Some of them may be triggering some false positives.
I like their Volumouse, it's a little beastie. Lets me control my mouse with my scroll wheel and a key combination (i use another mouse input), and it works great.
I was weary of the malware warning WOT gave, but I checked the site and the Volumouse exe with VirusTotal, both came up clean.
an extremly wonderful site, with plenty of usefull tools, no clue why its listed as a malware distr
definetly worth checking out for awesome programs
Completely safe site with many little utilities, however, contains some links to suspicious sites (flv-player.us, which is reported as dangerous by Firefox).
Gute Seite mit nützlicher uneingeschränkt kostenloser Software.
Sehr gute Website mit vielen kleinen nützlichen Tools, die leider öfters von Virenscannern als gefährlich eingestuft werden.
This web site belongs to Nir Sofer, a generous genius who codes numerous and very useful small-footprint standalone tools and gives them away for free.
His tools contain no malware, spyware, adware, or nagware, and are listed on the best freeware sites. Because some tools, such as his registry search tool, are designed to provide users with info about low-level system components, they may trigger false detections some third party security software which could be called "Nir-Sofer-ignorant". Some major brands of security software easily recognize his tools without false detections.
No trouble found.
