Does paint.NET contain spyware or viruses? =/

Recommended Posts

Nope, nothing of that nature. I'd never let it happen.

I've had people approach me suggesting that I bundle things like toolbars and other dubious software because they can generate money (like $1 per installation, or 5 cents per 100 search clicks or something). I told them to drop dead.

Please read the "Problems during Download" section of this page:

Rick does not include any viruses/spyware/etc. in the official download.  However, unscrupulous people have taken paint.net and added their own crap to it and published it making it look official... just know that it is not under Rick's control.  If you want the official distribution of paint.net you must download it from the page I just linked you above.
