While there is a lot of legitimate and good-quality, free software out there (ex. Adobe Reader, Google SketchUp, Mozilla Firefox, etc) there is also a lot of free software you don’t want to touch with a ten foot pole. Free downloads are notorious for containing spyware and malware. Download free software only from sites you know and trust! Resist the impulsive temptation for the freebie, or the decision could end costing you big.
