    Hello, May I enquire whether the above 5 softwares are virus free? I remember using Funshion a few years back., & my laptop was infested with a virus, which took me a really long time & effort to clear them off. Just wanted to know if this is now SAFE? Thank you.

      Try installing VirtualBox – than use these 5 suggested softwares with VM Virtualbox. On the VPN blogs they suggest Users to setup a new profile account on your laptop to watch movies/web search; therefore if there is a Virus/Malware it won’t infect entire system. Install “uBlock Origin” add-on to Browser, Firefox browser is best to stream movies online b/c Chrome takes up lots of CPU & Ram.
