Many sites like download.com, softonic and softpedia contains many redirects and big green download now fake buttons for downloading a certain software it takes many steps

Sorry. You won't find any site like that. Just use an ad blocker to hide the misleading download buttons. You could also use a user script like Antiadware with a script manager like Greasemonkey for extra protection.

You could use use an application called DDownloads from Mirinsoft for the same. It also has a portable version. It's software repository is quite huge.

Every website needs to cover the expenses for hosting like you said. My advice is to use an adblocker and while you are accustomed to the site, you could disable it.

Softpedia and MajorGeeks are good download sites, in case you want to download from a download site.

As George.J says in his post, first use an adblocker, and then when you are used to the site with an adblocker, and will know which is the real download button, then after a few days, you can disable the adblocker, and then continue downloading from that site.

MajorGeeks is a good site, and I have disabled the adblocker on the site in order to support it.

You should definitely use an adblocker though... because of the various kinds of ads present on all sites nowadays, which can be really distracting.

About Ninite, I have read good experiences with it, on various sites.

In order to be more safe, will advise you to download the software from the home site of the software itself, which will ensure that you are downloading the latest version from the software's own site, and therefore, it will be safest.

Also note that even if you are able to download from safe and clean sites like Softpedia and MajorGeeks, which do not use download wrappers.. still, you should be careful during installation of the software in order to avoid the bundled extra software. Watch the installation screens carefully, and choose custom installation, when there is an option for that.

Thanks Anupam for your Concrete Information

Downloading bundle of software from officials sites is very time consuming although they are safe and trustworthy but occasionally they also introduce crap-wares with their installer

My actual question was that is there a site which provides direct download links of latest software's on the same page and download starts on the same page.

I found Ninite but today I noted @ ninite that SuperAntiSpyware was updated many days ago on other sites but ninite update that software today and also there are very limited collection about 90 software's only
