This is a classic free and shareware download site offering other vendors' software with or without a download manager. Although it presents as a playground, be warned that the software you get may be buggy, outdated, malicious, and/or bundled with very much unwanted third-party add-ons. Always get your software from the original vendor or its designated distributor. Free download sites are recipes for trouble, as you can discover by visiting the support forums of the original vendors.

Unfortunately, Microsoft has abandoned the free viewers program, so claims here that 'current' viewers are available, are suspect. "The Word Viewer, PowerPoint Viewer and Excel Viewer have been retired. These Viewers will no longer be available for download or receive security updates. To continue viewing Office files for free, we recommend buying & installing the Office apps or storing documents in OneDrive or Dropbox, where {parasitic apps for} Word Online, Excel Online, or PowerPoint Online opens them in your browser."

The google search was for "setpoint 6.69.123" and I double checked, the link i clicked on was for exactly what I searched for, but then i get here and they're offering me "setpoint 6.69.114". I'm sick of this clickbait crap

Not saying SoftPedia is bad, I get most of my programs off there, but there could possibly be some PUP's (Potentially Unwanted Programs). so that is why my trustworthiness in yellow.

Although generally a good site for downloads Softpedia has a large amount of software that either does not work well or is known to be fake-ware and reports false problems and viruses and demands money to fix.

A good website for downloading software but be cautious and use AdBlock so you don't accidentally click on ads.
