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.

I know Windows OS is a pain at times http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png I did try Ubuntu at one stage but its just not for me Im too daft lol Im just so glad I found this site for the security I have set up on the computer because I was utterly useless before!

I will have a look at the sites suggested thanks!

I will also take a look at GIMP, it has to be fairly simple to use and its more a casual "whim" I just took some pictures that needed some editing rather than serious graphical work, thank you for all the replies though.
