Why do many people have the false belief that if anything is downloaded for free it has a virus?

Many browser tool bars are free, Windows updates are free, many free downloads are free. If so many things were full of viruses, then we could not use peer to peer, Yahoo Mail, Windows Updates, Google Search, various home pages. Maybe things were worse before, but many browser tool bars have pop-up blockers, anti-spy, etc. Even some of the free anti-virus programs detect viruses that ones we have to pay for don’t. Sure there are evil people who are up to no good. But, not everything for free contains a virus. Darn it!

your right, and the only thing that you can do is try to educate the people and tell them whats up.
