it's a good idea to always download from the company that developed the software if possible. otherwise, use a reputable site (such as zdnet, sourceforge, etc).

regarding the first:

That says there's adware in one of two registry cleaner downloads.

And it's always good to download it from the company site (http://www.softwareonline.com/)

I'm always suspicious of domain names consisting of long strings of words separated by hyphens. It's a technique often used to "cheat" in search engine results, because under Google's ranking system, the domain name is (IIRC) one of the most important factors in determining the relevance of a page.
