Hi! :)

Just gona tell you, got virus from Download offers. It was that Audacity, and it really messed up my computer. Got it off when vent to safe mode, and scanned whole computer.

Hope staff does something about that.

There's photo for proof, translated primary text with paint

Points2shop recommends using Sandboxie if you're going to complete the download offers, so you don't risk anything from the download offers on the site. Go to Sandboxie.com to download the program. Use it when you complete those types of offers.

Yeah, another one to add to the list is one of the Real Player ones, that gave me problems.

I use ubuntu linux for most of the offers. Since there're very few viruses for linux i feel much safer from spyware and viruses. (although you can't do most downloaded offers with it.)
