(I have not had any problem with malware downloading, but I do download it from getpaint.net)Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

It is so user friendly and if you have any questions there are tons of tutorials online.ConsI haven't had anything go wrong in five years of using this program.SummaryI have downloaded it on every computer I have used (work and home) for the last 5 years. I just downloaded it onto my new work computer and didn't have any of the issues of malware or added programs I read about in some of the other reviews. The "magic wand" is my most favorite tool to use. It's so cool!!!Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (0) (0) 5 stars"I've always used this for image editing"July 06, 2014 | By tomysshadow | Version: Paint.NET 4.0 ProsBetter interface and faster loading times and not as ugly as GIMP. Layout wise it is much more similar to MS Paint while your results will not look completely amateur. Has a huge plugin base and lots of support in their forum. Supports transparency and a decent amount of formats including Targa. Version 4.0 is way different from 3.5 but still fantastic and does everything it could before and more. It also supports layers.ConsDon't install the Megalo plugin pack - that is a scam. Get the plugins and the program itself from the official site.SummaryGreat when installed correctlyReply to this review Was this review helpful?

Program itself is great.ConsThis installer includes some nasty malware that is extremely difficult to get rid of. Shame on CNET for allowing this virus-filled piece of crap to infect so many computers. I used to trust both CNET and Paint.Net- no longer.SummaryDownload and install this if you want your computer infested with malware that is extremely difficult to get rid of.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

It's fairly easy to use and I haven't run into any problems.ConsIt did ask to install some toolbars and stuff but I was able to say no and it only installed paint.net. No other problems.SummarySeems to work fine for me.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?
