The Best Free Software

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — admin @ 10:26 pm

Some great new free Windows software I have recently used:

  1. Microsoft Security Essentials:  http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials
    • Simple real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software that doesn’t impact the resources on your computer.
    • You must run genuine Windows to get it for free.
    • For WinXP (CPU of 500 Mhz or higher), and Vista, and Windows 7 (CPU of 1 GHz or higher)
  2. Secunia’s Personal Software Inspector:  http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/
    • Ensure’s your computer is not subject to security risks because of un-patched software.
    • Simple, fast and does a really good job.
  3. YouTube Downloader:  http://youtubedownload.altervista.org/
    • It can download YouTube video’s (in their FLV format) and convert them to other video formats.
    • Careful on the install – De-select the options to Install the Toolbar and to Set your home page to Yahoo!
A guy at the MVP dinner mentioned this piece of software – YouTube Downloader: http://youtubedownload.altervista.org/.
It can download YouTube video’s (in their FLV format) and convert them to other video form
