My favorite file manager in windows5 starsby hreeus (Read all my 3 reviews)
I've tried quite a few file managers in the past years but I keep coming back to Q-dir. I've had no issues running both portable and installation versions on Win xp, Win 7, Win 8 and now on Win 10. Program settings can be a little awkward but for a free program I can't complain.

Excellent5 starsby mcr0161 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I've used this for several years. It's one of the few which has the "streaming fast start" option when encoding MP4. That is essential if you're making files for use on websites, otherwise the video won't start playing until the entire file has downloaded. The "CPU Priority" setting is another bonus. So XMedia Recode can be left chugging away encoding without bringing other activities on the PC to a standstill. Many thanks to the author.

Free. not intuitive, but free.2 starsby brian_c_1973376 (Read all my 2 reviews)
To be honest, I don't know why this program is so popular and gets such great reviews. Now I'm sure it has every feature you could possibly want in a freeware program like this one but the problem is that the interface is just not intuitive. I don't like to feel like I need to take a class to learn how to use a piece of software that should be (could be) very simple if they put the effort into making it so. It appears likely that this interface appeals to a certain type of person who probably learned on this interface and doesn't find it confusing. Oh well. It's free, right? Enjoy it if you can.

Finally, good journal software for windows5 starsby vdubgolf9647 (Read all my 2 reviews)
At startup, I was immediately impressed when Journaley automatically detected my Dropbox installation and allowed me to place my journal in it with one click. I feelThe software feels very polished and is GREAT to use on a day by day basis. Attaching photos is easy and love the simple tagging system. I felt relieved when I looked at the Dropbox folder and the journal entries are simple XML files and the photos are photos! I can't stand when software puts your data in a proprietary container that you can only access with their software.

Excellent password generator5 starsby objective (Read all my 9 reviews)
Those who have used the password generator in KeePass Password Safe will find PWGen familiar. This is a powerful password generator, but is quite easy to use. PWGen gives you full control over the type of password(s) you create, including which character types to include. It gathers entropy automatically, which is something most password generators do not do. PWGen is thoughtfully designed in that its windows can all be resized, and they remember their sizeposition. (I won't go on about this because in the past, I have been ridiculed on this site for addressing interface concerns.) My one complaint is a minor one, which is that the only way to remove character sets requires editing the .INI file directly.

LibreOfficeLibreOffice

A fantastic office suite5 starsby OnePiece (Read all my 10 reviews)
LibreOffice never fails to impress me with its rapid development cycle and continuous addition of (useful!) new features. By now it already incorporates all essential and convenience (like "hide empty space") features I like in other office suites, and there are some "hidden" gems in it, like the excellent LibreLogo programming language to create drawings. Stability-wise it is on par or better than Microsoft Office. Its user interface uses the now "old school" multi-toolbar and menu-oriented access, but for me, as a long time computer user, it is a plus. (Still, since the new 5.2 version they even implemented a single-toolbar mode.) Interoperability with Microsoft Office can be a bit of a problem, but it is possible. It is best to use LibreOffice on its own. Since it is multi-platform, collaborating on Windows and Linux can be done seamlessly. One of the best freeware ever created.

Super!!!5 starsby virtuallyalyssa937
I've used SUPERAntiSpyware for at least 10 years now and I've never found anything remotely as effective. I'm one for doing a bucket-load of research and have tried a multitude of programs but they all pale in effectiveness and efficiency to this one. Tried 'em all and read all their reviews ... none of them compare. Easy to download, activate and use ... thorough ... reliable ... and there's always a marked difference in PC speed and function straight after I've scanned and rebooted. I've made do with the free version for years, but have decided today, after reading the responses the developers have given to others who have left reviews, I'm won over. They seem really professional and proud of their product. Well done guys! and THANK YOU! There's a LOT of rubbish out there that causes glitches with other programs, downloads hidden extras that do the same - SUPERAntiSpyware is clean and smooth and just does the job! Again ... THANK YOU!

Little software support & customer service.1 starsby wmoore1131661
They only support the software for 1 or 2 years, then you have to buy an upgrade, which cost over 200 USD. Per their email to me... "reached end of support life...severe compatibility issues....obsolete version. We suggest you keep your e-Campaign up-to-date." With the "special discount" to keep the software up-to-date approx. every 2 years, the cost is over 200 USD - did it once, no more.

This puppy is your faithful watchdog5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 14 reviews)
Not every INTRUSIVE program is a virus or malware or even identified as a PUP, potentially unwanted program. Many are innocent of any bad intentions, they just want to install some service they need into your start-ups. To them it's innocent. But if you want to either PREVENT this, or Allow this TEMPORARILY, or just browse through a list of all your startups now and then to enable or disable (that's right, it keeps the disabled ones in the list) then this puppy is your faithful watchdog.

In case for any reason your brain or browser doesn't remember your credentials (brand new browser?) this is your rescue. Just know that many anti-malware programs will ID and quarantine the password stuff in this. So you better know how to whitelist inside your security programs.

Easy-peasy ip changer5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 14 reviews)
Easy as pie to select a different Location, which gives your pc a different IP, for privacy. I checked with a couple of Check IP websites and it works. Hint, follow their suggestions and pick a location nearby your intended server. In the case of torrents from users all over, I guess just pick a locale with the desired language.

Maybe the best 2-pane ui5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 14 reviews)
On first use, VERY VERY nice 2-pane explorer replacement. I've tried many, and the first things I look for are two abilities: toggle the list/details font SIZE Up for my 1920w monitor and old eyes. CHECK! And then, I like to mix list/details Folder names and File names (instead of separate at top-bottom). CHECK! These are both in Config/ExplorerPanel/Settings/Display. I also like the multitude of handy Buttons along the bottom, Calculate Folder Size(s) right at the top of the Tools menu, and alternate color striping in list/details view. It looks like a keeper!

I've used every virus, spyware and malware program there is over the last 20 years. SuperAntivirus is the only virus protection software that allowed me to recover from system failure. While lacking in some popular features, it never failed in what it was designed to do. It's my failsafe backup when others fail.

Exact Audio CopyExact Audio Copy

Excellent cd ripper4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 60 reviews)
Exact Audio Copy(EAC) is a CD ripper, tagger, metadata searcher and burner which uses AccurateRip to verify the copy. It's fairly easy to use, but setting it up may be tricky if you don't know about the calibration well. You need a good standard legit CD to help calibrate it. If you use a CD that doesn't calibrate it well, EAC will spit out CDs and only copy certain ones. I had this problem and wrote an earlier review and gave a lower score, but I researched the problem more, found the solution and rewrote my review. The calibrating may be a problem for some who don't understand how to calibrate EAC and end up having problems with it, so it isn't that simple to set-up for everyone. But when you calibrated it correctly it's simple to use from there. I prefer EAC over other rippers because I favor the AccurateRip feature that is rarely found in others. EAC will rip your CD perfectly or near-perfect. You can be at ease to know that your music files will have no crackling or distortions that may ruin your speakers(it happened to me once). I can only complain about the GUI it's really old looking and needs an update, but it's functional. Overall, it is the best ripper to use. It's free and has all the tools others may have, but the AccurateRip feature is the main reason to have it.

Great copier4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 60 reviews)
It has never failed me for copying CDs. I have used it for years and never had any crackling on the audio tracks, but it's possible that it could because there isn't a tool to verify the copied music files with something like AccuRip. Anyway, for what it's worth(FREE) it's a great copier that will satisfy general users and maybe some advance users. It's a Microsoft partner, so it will be compatible with Windows. It needs registration, so you'd probably better off using the GiveAway version, Burning Studio 2016 like I do instead.

HDD GuardianHDD Guardian

Buggy1 starsby objective (Read all my 9 reviews)
I like the fact that HDD Guardian allows you to avoid waking drives to check their S.M.A.R.T. status. This is something CrystalDiskInfo does not have. However, I found problem after problem with HDD Guardian. I lost track of all the exceptions I encountered. One of them was because the application requires elevation, but does not request it (the author says they will fix this). But others were not so easy to figure out. I also found that despite being configured to update every 5 minutes, it never did--or at least, the main window and tray icons never updated, unless I forced an update in the main window. This makes me wonder if it is updating and just not updating the interface, or if it's just not updating at all. Another issue is that you can't really configure it to warn you about high temperatures. If you enable temperature warnings, it will put up a notification for EVERY little temperature change--even if the temp goes DOWN 1 degree and is well below the threshold! Why? I have no idea. It doesn't make any sense. Back to CrystalDiskInfo I go.

Only provides a measly 1 GB free storage1 starsby edwardgudz529
Tresorit only provides a measly 1 GB free storage, if you want more you have to pay. Beware also that Tresorit has the right to delete your free account and files after 120 days of inactivity. If your only storing docs and such this may be of interest to you, otherwise I'd recommend a service like Dropbox, at least they give you more free storage in which you could encrypt your own files in AES 256 before upload and your files will be just as safe. This free service serve absolutely no purpose to anyone that wants to store a decent amount of files. Also, just because Tresorit is based in Europe means absolutely nothing when it comes to U.S. government entities that have long reaching arms, they will get whatever they want, just depends on how badly they want it and I am sure if you read the fine print in their TOS I am sure there is something in there whereas they can share your files and information with certain "entities" Nothing, absolutely nothing stored on the internet or cloud is safe, encrypted or not. The absolute BEST storage is encrypted OFFLINE on removable media..... period.

Caused my whole computer to run stupidly slow1 starsby coreysugden896
For a few hours I was trying to find the cause of my computer running slow, baring in mind the OS was just installed on a new SSD and there was almost no CPUMemory usage. Turns out it was this terrible piece of software 'writing' to my SSD and causing my whole system to just chug if I did as little as open Windows Explorer. Thanks for ripping me off.

Lousy interface1 starsby objective (Read all my 9 reviews)
I know I will be assailed for dissenting, as always, but I don't care. I like the feature set, but I hate the interface. I hate the style over substance. The grey-on-lighter-grey text which is hard to read; the tiny fonts; the non-sizable columns; the scattered design of the overall interface; the constant needless disk writing.

It leaves stuff behind2 starsby fernman (Read all my 8 reviews)
As I often try various bits of freeware, I thought Geek Uninstaller was ideal for me. But after using Geek for a couple of weeks, UltraSearch found 4 files on my hard drive with the name of a program I had removed, and another 4 files with the program maker's name. I then ran Regedit which found 3 leftover keys. Now I am using another uninstaller, whose first use was to remove Geek!

Application needs allot more testing.1 starsby nick521
Be VERY careful with this and do multiple backups from different vendors if I were you. I paid for this app so I expect a certain level of quality. I lost ALLOT of very personal data, some apps didn't even copy, I lost ALL my app data. Apps like CityMapper that has had months and months of data being entered into it, gone. My WhatsApp history which I rely heavily on to stay in contact with family, 95 gone andor all jumbled up. Some WhatsApp groups were lost, I have so many I cannot identify just how bad the damage is. I also lost a number of my contacts but again no idea just how many. I have accumulated many years of contacts. The worst thing, my entire photo collection had the dates wiped. I lost all metadata from the birth of my child. Very precious, personal information which as a first time parent you hold onto. All dates and location info, gone :( ...makes me really sad I won't have this to share with my daughter when she gets older. I wouldn't rely on the stability of this application until it has gone through more testing. For most people, the mobile is a very personal extension of themselves so you should think very hard about just who you are placing your trust in when allowing them to restore your world. Just to clarify, I wasn't doing anything unusual... a simple backup of the s6 prior to phone being replaced. I don't run anything strange or taxing that alters the phone setup in anyway. Very disappointing. If you try this, use two backup vendors for safety

VeraCryptVeraCrypt

Good clone of truecrypt, but very, very slow2 starsby ianmacm (Read all my 174 reviews)
VeraCrypt is intended to be an up to date replacement for TrueCrypt, which was discontinued in 2014. The interface of VeraCrypt is basically a clone of TrueCrypt, but it is not compatible with files that have been encrypted for it. The main issue is the time taken to load encrypted volumes or devices. 30-90 seconds is quite normal and older processors may take double that time. VeraCrypt says that this is necessary for improved security, but after a while I became tired of being able to boil an egg before the volumes and devices loaded. Similar on-the-fly encryption programs can mount the encrypted files much more quickly, and I think that the trade-off for improved security is being spoiled by the egg timer wait for them to load with VeraCrypt. Unless you are trying to keep a top level expert from accessing your files, it may be better to stick to a program that loads the encrypted files in a more reasonable length of time.

This allows me when working from my laptop to quickly fire up Angry IP scanner and select that network and I've got the information I needed. It is the little features that add flare to already amazing program. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it!
