Their was website believe it had death in the name of the url. It had a collection of all the latest softwares so one url to download all the tools.. even malware that blocked major sites allowed this url.. had software like combofix, hijackthis, malwarebytes, antispyware, ect. Can anyone tell me what that url is again? I lost it and I got it from the forums here.

Interesting ...

BleepingComputer is the Host site for ComboFix - ComboFix use warning: ComboFix. No one here should have directed you to another site like the one you mention. If you have a member name, I would like to know who it was.

I would also recommend going directly to the author's download site. The have been cases where free tools were "sold" to unsuspecting victims.

I believe "pchell.com" is a relatively safe site which has helped a lot of people.

I suspect that Norton Safeweb report may be a "false positive" similar to when Bleeping Computer is "flagged" as an unsafe site.

Maybe someone else can shed further light on this?

Yeah really wish I could remember url. All it had was files of the major removal software. Was nice when I was working on a system that had redirection so you could not get to sites like malwarebytes and others similar because they would kill downloads or redirect. So wish I could remember the url myself but lost it.

@ johnwho, indeed PChell is generally known for good tuts on for example malware removal. I watched the report which made them declare the site as "unsafe", its just one executable, which is a removal tool... some scanners pick these up as malware.

Download.com (from cnet.com) usually has a host of downloadable content.

Also, if you're looking for just a good registry cleaner, CCleaner is pretty great.
