Top Freeware Links
Posted 05 February 2007 - 11:44 AM
Firefox - Freeware browser that's miles better than Internet Explorer.
WinAmp - Again the freeware domain knocks Microsoft into a cocked hat - This is a great audio player...
ZoneAlarm - Freeware firewall - well recommended.
AVG Anti Virus - Another great freeware anti virus program. Daily updates make this a winner...
Ccleaner - A fanastic freeware cleanup tool, I take this to every job I go to.
Ewido Anti Spyware - Now AVG but still a top bit of kit.
SpyBot Search & Destroy - I have two anti spyware programs to cover me, this is my second. Quality.
Juice - Freshly squeezed excellence. Cross-platform podcast reciever without all the Apple shite that goes with it.
GOM Player - A great video viewer that does the lot.
Irfanview - Splendid image manipulation and conversion tool, I use this a lot.
I'll post more when I get a minute.
If there's a link down please give us a shout, also if you've got something that we should know about please feel free to post it up here as well - however if we find out that it's warez, we'll take it down - plus you may get a warning...

Google Earth - photos of anywhere in the world, needs broadband connection
Trillian - combines MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger and AIM in one program
VLC Media Player - free DVD playing software, not region-coded, great all-round media player
Tweak UI Power Toy - lets you fiddle with hidden XP settings
Ad Aware Personal - same as Spybot, I run both anti spyware programs together
Windows Defender - ditto, free anti spyware software from Microsoft
K Lite Codec Pack - decoders for all movie & music file types, plus Real Alternative and Media Player Classic to replace bloated XP software
And if you download Firefox (listed above) there are some excellent add-ons for it:
Ad Block Plus - filters banners and Flash ads, even Google text ads, from web pages
No Script - blocks all scripts and executable content from web pages unless you allow them
IE Tab - runs IE in a Firefox page, so you can open pages that don't like Firefox
Mouse Gestures - navigate the web in Firefox using combinations of mouse movements

I've just installed and run this and it's cleaned about 0.5GB of rubbish from my PC and I run several utility progs regularly on my PC. Top stuff.

FastStone - Great little image viewer, becoming the bees knees in freeware image cataloguing and viewing.
FileZilla - Fantastic free FTP client. I use this and AceFTP, I actually prefer this one. Too easy to delete things on the server with AceFTP.
Speedfan - Monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. Interesting bit of kit this, you can change your fan speed as well!

AVItricks Video Editor - Freeware video editing tool, full of features, filters and effects. Looks like it can output to loads of screensizes but to only .AVI or .WMV. But .WMV is pretty close compression to MPEG4. There are some freeware converters knocking about too.
Convert to MPEG4 - Freeware video converter

Handbrake - HandBrake is a GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder. HandBrake is not a ripper. It converts video, it does not rip it byte by byte. It does not crack the latest DVD copy protection schemes hatched by the studios. It converts video from nearly any format to a handful of modern ones—that's it. HandBrake is not everything for everyone for every need. - that's what they say, and it's good at what it does too...
