Tried to download paint.net from this site and ended up not getting the program but rather, did get several German (or Danish) shortcuts to Amazon.de and other shopping sites installed on my computer. Still trying to get rid of them all. Won't use this site again. Beware!

Articles end with scummy suggestions. At least to me the design looks like it's recommending other articles, but they're actually ads. [man being interviewed, holding iphone] "Retailers hate this! They don't want you to find out about this on..."

When I downloaded a perfectly legitimate piece of software (Adwcleaner), this site bundled three unwanted programs (PUPS) with it. Nasty.

Techradar downloaded files secretly installs malware without permission and that cannot be removed without doing a recovery or hopefully virus scan. The so-called installer is completely unnecessary and only exists to corrupt your computer. Check your complete list of icons in notification area to see them still on PC even if you choose to abort any installation. This is malicious. Please help stop them by reporting. IM EXTREMELY MAD THAT WOT DIDNT DETECT THIS AS BEING AN UNSAFE SITE! JUST BECAUSE OVERZEALOUS PEACENIKS MARK AS SAFE DOESNT RESOLVE THE FACT THAT MANY MANY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE KNOW THIS SITE IS MALICIOUS. IN THIS CENTURY ARE WE REALLY THAT STUPID? IF PEOPLE MARK IT AS MALICIOUS THEN IT PROBABLY IS! ERR ON THE SIDE OF SAFETY!! Now I have to run a virus scan. Thanks for nothing WOT. Seriously. If a Mod exists then just fix this. I thank you on behalf of everyone. Next time heed the people saying a site is dangerous. Be worthwhile. We are doing our part.

I like much of the content but I don't like being pestered to leave cookies. That is a really bad practice- hence the markdown to light green. EDIT: After reading more reviews I am delisting this one and marking it down another notch.

Aufdringliche Versuche, ungewünschte Zusatzsoftware an den Mann zu bringen. Beispiel <http://www.techradar.com/downloads/free-dwg-viewer>: Es wird ein "Downloader" zum Herunterladen bereit gestellt, der einen erst mit endlosen Nutzerbedingungen, bei der Ausführung dann mit idiotischen Zusatzsoftwarevorschälgen nervt, und am Schluss landet man beim bekannten "Free Brava Reader". Dafür braucht niemand ein "Radar"
