    1. Sure would like to read some comments here from the people who run this site explaining why the free software they offer for download and the software they are selling is loaded with spyware and tracking cookies.

      [Note from Administrator: Sure would like to know where you got such erroneous information. There is no spyware or tracking cookies in any of our downloads. ]
