Hi, I was wondering if someone could advise me please. I wanted to download a free photo editor, I don't really edit many photos so it was just to see if I could unblur some and play around with it really. I am running Win 7, security software:avast,MBAM and sandboxie, really happy with this set up. I went to download.com and brothersoft to try photoscape but after recovery from the sandbox and scanned with MBAM, it picked up opencandy which I think is adware? This happened from both places, I obviously deleted via MBAM. Avast didn't pick this up. Can anyone advise a clean download of photscape please or whether I am doing something wrong?

Many Thanks

You could try Photoshop online. No Download needed.

Sadly this is a sign of the times, There is almost no such thing as "free" software for Windows OS.
