So Rainmeter is a free open source software that is available in the Bleeping Computer downloads section. It is a system monitoring GUI software, and also it is aesthetically pleasing. There are a number of free custom skins on Deviantart that are free plugins to customize Rainmeter. However, common sense tells you that you shouldn't download random stuff from the internet. There is an article here that says that some Raimeter skins and plugins on Devintart may have viruses or malware.
It would be good to know if a particular Rainmeter skin is safe before downloading it. How do you know? What are your guys' thoughts on this?
