I am frequently being asked to download doxillion prior to getting a doc, is it safe?  Is there a possibility my pc is infected?  Lenovo T420, Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core I-5-2520m @ 2.5 GHz, 64 bit,  Firefox Quantum 58.0.2.

Thanks in advance for your help.

When I click on a PDF to download from a website is when the dialogue box pops up.

Sorry for the delay. I wouldnt download it. You probably already have a native PDF reader on your computer to handle PDF's.

Doxillion just converts bewtween different documents.

I always reccomend getting software directly from the publishers website and not from a popup or web site "suggestion" or from a download portal which often push other addons to install.

Not suggesting its malware or anything unsafe, it just pays to be cautious.
