Avast caught an adware virus in the file I attempted to download when I scanned it. Just don't do it, find another site. If you use Coolrom's alternative link, it can get you most things that aren't Nintendo. I'm pretty sure you can't even find Nintendo roms or isos anymore.

it works. sure the file comes in a .exe installer but as long as youre not an idiot and decline the easily spotted adware, youll get your ROM/ISO with no problem. its 2017, everyone should be able to spot the adware that bloats any installer these days.

I tried to download an n64 rom and it came in as an .exe file. Roms are not exe files. I did not launch the program because I new it was most likely a virus. I hope this helps at least some people.

Es un buen sitio para descargar ROMS de juegos antiguos, pero debes tener cuidado al hacer eso, algunos son sospechosos o directamente malware, si tienes cuidado y un buen antivirus es bastante útil.

Do NOT listen to people saying this website doesn't have viruses. They're probably too ignorant people or accounts made by the website. This website is supposed to give roms. Roms doesn't come in a .EXE! they come as they are, or in an archive file like zip, rar or 7z. Never trust a website that gives .exe for rom files.

Be careful on how you try to get the ROM on this site. I just tried to get one and some other program tried downloading as an .EXE file with the same name of the ROM instead of a .ZIP. Thanks to my lighting reflexes I managed cancel the download before it was able to finish.

When I tried downloading a rom from this site, I had to download it from an installer, and the installer came with a bunch of adware and malware I had to remove afterwards, which included stuff like Yontoo, something called "PremierOpinion" and the "Searchinterneat-a.akamaihd.net" adware. I dunno if it's like it for all of the roms on this site but just be careful anyway.

Patience is a virtue. The little installers from non-"direct" download links may bring you things which will take so much longer than 15 seconds to get rid of.
