do you really think those software are for free? not really, the "free software" as you call it, will read and report your entire HD to some server and place it in some data base, then it will be sold to corporations so they can sell you all kind of stuff and who knows what else. some free software, eh? i can't believe people still believe in free stuff.


While indeed some apps do as you suggest, conspiracy theories aside, there are literally thousands of totally FREE programs out there that are just that: FREE with no "hooks" or strings attached. I've used hundreds of such programs over the years myself.
