The reason why I'm commenting on Gizmos / Techsupportalert is that I can see that some of the negative WOT ratings are based on a single visit to Gizmos / Techsupportalert or probably a domain scam site.
My positive rating is based on frequent usage since August 2009.
I like that their recommendations aren't finite, - both pros and cons are mentioned, and reviews are open for both positive and negative user comments, as well as discussions between users/members of the user forum.
It's a bit like WOT, where you often can't find a definite Yes or No answer, but have to skim and read the comments before you decide on your own opinion.
As far as I am concerned this is one of the top ten sites on the entire Internet! And no Gizmo is not my dad or any relation! LOL
I just totally love this site and have learned 50-60 percent of what I know about computers either directly or indirectly from this site.
I could never thank them enough!! It is my GOTO for any knowledge or problem. If they can't help you, then neither can Bill Gates.
Good source for finding available freeware that is accompanied with reviews. Some of the information is dated although they actively seek editors which contribute on a voluntary basis.
Freeware is often bundled with toolbars, or additional unwanted software so beware during the install process and un-tick the boxes for the added software. Because some of the reviews are old quite old there may not be warnings of this tactic.
The site has a forum which unfortunately has devolved into allot bickering, mean spirited attacks and callous moderators.
Do be careful about letting your children know about this site otherwise you may find your hard drive maxed out ;)
This site is worth its weight in gold. I found quite a few media players that I could use and more than that, it warned me of certain player that contain bundled malware or adware, and how to avoid installing those packets attached to the installer.
I love this site , it is safe , trustworthy , and has independent advice on the best freeware around , also it provides safe links to download the freeware , I'm being honest in saying I would be lost without this site and it's the only independent freeware site I trust 100%
