When you’re using our Ares free download, it’s essential that you check the files that you’re downloading very thoroughly before you choose to use them. This is for your safety. Although the network does a good job of removing bad files from the network automatically, it doesn’t guarantee that everything you download will be entirely safe, so in this article we’re going to be telling you how you can self-check the files to ensure that you never encounter any issues.
When you have our tool installed onto your computer and have a number of different files downloaded from the network, it’s time to check their authenticity before going any further. Some files obtained from the internet could be very damaging, such as stealing your personal information or just being a general nuissance and slowing your computer down. Perhaps the most obvious thing you need to do is to run a virus scanner to test the file to make sure it doesn’t contain any viruses. It’s hard to give recommendations but any major antivirus software should do the trick.
One thing you must be aware of, though, is that sometimes antivirus software makes mistakes. It can’t be right all the time and sometimes it uses out of date information to wrongly make a decision, which is why you should never completely rely on what it gives you. For example, the software we provide on our website is sometimes detected too but this is a false positive, meaning that it IS completely safe. You’ll have no problems installing it onto your system and may need to temporarily disable it in order to do so. Next, we’ll give you some other ways in which you could self-check the files you download.
If your file shows as clean, it’s time to do some other tests on it. The file size is something that should be of big concern to you. You should be suspicious if a song has a file size of less than 1MB as this wouldn’t normally be genuine and could be a fake which obviously isn’t what you want on your computer. It’s the same for others, but more specifically with software which could be the most risky type of file you can obtain from our Ares download. As a general rule of thumb, songs tend to use a couple of megabytes whilst movies and software could run into several hundred megabytes, maybe even gigabytes.
Quickly previewing the file could also be a good idea. For this, you can use the media player built into the application. This will help you to check what you’ve downloaded, as long as it is a song or movie, in a safe environment to make sure you’re happy with what you’re doing. It’s always a good idea to do this while the downloading is in progress so that you can stop it straight away if you aren’t happy, that way you won’t be waiting for a while for something you don’t want. When it comes to downloading files, the people who stay safe are those who have a keen eye and are careful with what they’re doing rather than being reckless and not checking anything.
In conclusion, self-checking when you’re downloading files from the network is essential if you want to maintain the security on your system. Most of the users do it so there is no reason why you shouldn’t either. The network is mainly safe but there is exceptions in every P2P network so make sure you’re suspicious of everything and don’t run anything you don’t believe is genuine. For now, we can just recommend that you use our app and get started right away, but make sure you’re safe while doing so to prevent any issues from occuring in either the short or long term.
