DownloadWarez is one of the biggest direct download websites in the world. Everyday we provide our visitors with thousands of full version software, games, movies, and more. Our goal is to provide an easy-to-use directory and search engine for all kind of files. Visitors of DownloadWarez can anonymously download from this site.
Yes, it is all 100% free. We promise to never charge you for anything you download off our website. If in the future we decide to sell anything, the main downloads will always remain free for anyone to download and use.
We do ask however to help support us by clicking our sponsor links. By buying anything from our ads, you are also helping contribute to our work. If nobody clicked our ads or bought from our ads, we would be offline.
It is legal in selected countries, where we are based this is not illegal. If you do not know if its legal or not where you live, then it's probably not! And even if it is, you cannot be caught like other services such as P2P and torrents! In some countries, you need to own the original program/file legally, before you can download it from our site.
DownloadWarez.org is in compliance with 17 U.S.C. § 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). It is our policy to respond to any infringement notices and take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable intellectual property laws.
Please note that we do not host any illegal content on this site. The warez file links do not contain data that might be copyrighted in any way.
However, we offer a service to remove warez links from our site if the copyright holder of the software requests so. These removal requests are only valid if:
• You are, or your company is, the copyright holder of this software (no generic anti-piracy groups).
• You provide the exact links to the warez file links, no complete (sub)categories or search queries.
• You provide the complete name(s) of the content in question.
• You provide complete contact information (including the name and phone number of the contact person), not a general anti-piracy mail address.
If your request complies with all of these rules, send a mail to us via the contact form. Please keep the correspondence polite.
Keep in mind that mails not applying to the above rules will be ignored.
Please allow 1-2 business days for an email response. Note that emailing your complaint to other parties such as our Internet Service Provider will not expedite your request and may result in a delayed response due the complaint not properly being filed.
This site works by indexing links from other websites. So, after clicking on a download, a new window will open. The top frame will provide options to help you with your download. The larger main frame will be where you will find the actual download information. If the download is 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. More information on how to download and download guides for Rapidshare and Megaupload can be found here.
After downloading, you need to scan all files with an antivirus, we suggest NOD32 or Kaspersky. Almost all files are compressed into .rar or .zip archives. To use these you must install a rar/zip software such as WinRAR or WinZip.
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.
There are broken links sometimes because of the amount of visitors downloading. A lot of times the files are downloaded so much, they become dead. Another reason is they have been deleted because of local laws.
