B1 Online Archiver keeps your computer safe from viruses? Are you having a laugh? If you then download those files which is exactly why you uploaded your zip, rar or whatever file then open it, guess what.. you get that application running on your PC. You can unarchive files without opening them, it’s exactly the same.

I check makeuseof every day because I like most of the posts, but it really winds me up how many of them are actually just plain incorrect. Who are you hiring? Can you hire people who have at least a degree in Comp Sci please rather than people who just trawl the web and make posts which would look at home on the daily mail?
