Softpedia is a good site. I don't understand why it has a poor rating here but they are huge and do a pretty good job at weeding out malware.
Sorry to say but this site has gone downhill over the years. It can be very hazardous to download from here.
Be very careful.
I'm thrilled with LO4D. Site has great freeware that's hosted on fast servers and doesn't use web downloaders or installers like download.com uses.
I have not run into problems yet and will update my review if I do.
