A computer system certainly requires any hardware or software. For software itself, there are many kinds. The type is freeware, trialware, and shareware. Surely you will be using freeware and trialware first to try out the software. The reason we use the freeware and trialware is we do not pay at all for the software. Is freeware safe? Do not just install! Because of the freeware is not necessarily in line with what we wanted.
Here I will explain the tip we have to do before installing freeware you should know:
If the software was created by famous developers such as Google and Microsoft, I think we do not need to doubt anymore. But you need to be careful if the software was created by an unknown company and not famous. If you know the right developer, it does not matter. And first, you should look to get these developers. This way in case if there is a virus in the freeware that can steal our data.
Find Information About Software
This thing we need to do if we want to install software, but made by a foreign developer (unknown). It's our anticipation that the software that will be downloaded later in accordance with what we expect. As an example, we want to find PDF converter software. There are a lot of software like a PDF converter, but not all of the software as what we want. Sometimes can only change one page. There also are leaving the watermark and others.
Download From A Trustworthy Site
It is also no less important. As we download from the official site and trusted software, certainly we do not doubt it. Most of the software in a trusted site has passed the scan from a variety of viruses before they are published.
Ensure Software Must Not containing the Virus
We got to see the software graduated from a virus scan before downloading it. And if we are not sure, we can scan your own software after downloading it.
Note the Software Installation Process
The last thing you should do is pay attention to the process of installation of the software. This we should do because sometimes we downloaded software brings another application that turns out we do not need and will only burden our CPU performance and RAM.
