Free Download Sites

I was looking for a free version of a no longer published Hallmark Christian Card Studio for making greeting cards. I think Sierra was the publishing company.
I put 'Free Christian Card Software' into the search engine and two sites claim you can download Hallmark Christian Card Studio ISO as a free download.
one site is
The other is
I'm a little leery, not knowing anything about these sites, are they familiar to you at all?
I'd appreciate your help.

In reply to: Free Download Sites seems to be a crack site, (cracked downloads).

I can't tell from Google what softwaresx is, and that makes me nervous.

Google tells me that the majority of sites listing Hallmark Christian Card Studio seem to be torrent sites or rapid share sites, and that means they are copies. Since we never know whether such copies will have viruses in them, we tend to stay away.

I see that Amazon have some 'used' CD's available. Amazon are trustworthy and those used should be the original CD's and not copies. Listed here.

Other than that, perhaps eBay will have some available.

I hope that helps.

If this s/w you're looking for in originally "paid for" in other words some commercial pgm., then any website offering it as free isn't a good idea. You're basically doing an illegal d/l, period. You're not entitled to get it unless it has become freeware, that does happen. As is usually the case, such pgms. become altered or packed with extras that weren't part of the original pgm. and are baddies waiting to hatch. So.......
