What is DownloadFortune?
DownloadFortune is one of the biggest direct download websites in the world. Every day we provide our visitors with hundreds of full version downloads including: games, software, movies, music, and more. Our site was launched in 2002. Our goal is to provide an easy-to-use directory and search engine for all kind of warez files. Visitors of DownloadFortune can anonymously download warez files from this site.
How do I download files from here:
DownloadFortune works by indexing links from other websites. To download a file indexed on our site:
1. Click on the download name. A new window will open. 2. Follow the download information on the page to retrieve your file.
If you download from a file hosting service such as Rapidshare or Megaupload, you need to download each file by loading it in a new window and waiting for the download link to appear.
What security measures should I take when downloading these files?
Firstly, we recommend you scan the file(s) you download. BitDefender, NOD32, Kaspersky, Avast AntiVirus are some examples of antivirus software. These may be available for download directly from our site.
If you don't scan your files with antivirus software there is a chance your computer can be infected.
Secondly, we HIGHLY recommend you use the Mozilla Firefox browser instead of Internet Explorer. Why? Firefox is more secure, reliable and safe.
What do I do after downloading a file?
Almost all files you download will be compressed into RAR (eg: .rar, .r01) or ZIP (eg: .zip) archives. To extract these files you will need to have software installed such as WinRAR or WinZip. Having both of these programs installed on your system is 'convenient' if you plan on downloading these types of files often. Your download is usually split into parts (eg, .rar, .r01, .r02, etc). You need to download all parts before attempting to extract the file. When all parts are downloaded, ensure they have been all saved in one folder. Then you can simply double-click on one of the files and it will open the appropriate extracting program (eg: WinRAR, WinZip). You can then extract (uncompress) these files (parts).
If the above sounds like jargon to you - don't worry! If it seems complex it really isn't. Once you do this once of twice you will be a pro at downloading from warez sites!
What do I do if the files are password protected?
The password is most likely the URL from where the warez file was downloaded (possibly even with 'www.' or 'http://'). If that is not the case try the URL of the website (of the respective warez file). If that still isn't the password try to contact the poster or site administrator of the respective site.
Does your website have spyware or viruses?
No way! Our website does not contain any spyware / viruses or any other malicious code that can cause harm to your computer. However, because we index links to other websites, we can not guarantee that every link will be a safe one. This is why we recommend you scan any downloaded files to ensure they are safe and to use Firefox for more secure safe web browsing. We try to only index clean sites but we can not guarantee these sites are 100% user-friendly. However, we strive to bring you the best and safest downloads possible.
Why are there broken links to downloads?
Some files get deleted due to copyright complaints. If there is a popular download, there is usually more chance of the files(s) being deleted. If you find broken links to downloads, you can report the download as being broken by using the "Report Broken Link" function which is located at the top of every download page. This will help us keep our download database clean and more user-friendly.
Do you have a plugin for Firefox web browser?
Yes, you can look at our firefox search plugin here. After installation click on the Google logo in the search field on the top right corner of the browser window and choose "DownloadFortune". You can now search warez downloads on DownloadFortune directly from your browser window.
