I have worked in I.T. for over 15 years, and for most of those years I was a die hard fan of the industry's most popular commercial AV software. Over the last two or three years I've become progressively disappointed with each year's new release. It takes up too many system resources, is buggy, and has annoying "product activation." As a result I started looking at numerous alternative anti virus programs -- both free and commercial. I tried four of the best known free AV products, and three commercial ones. After I installed AVG I was surprised to learn it found a Trojan that the none of the other AV products found even with the latest defs. AVG also takes up the least amount of system resources of any AV product I've used. Most of my friends and relatives now use AVG as well, and have had similar experiences. Today I run AVG on every PC in my home. With AVG being available for free there is no reason to buy anti virus software anymore.
Future versions of this tool might be good, but this software still needs a lot of work. It doesn't act like a true drive. The first thing I did after installing was copy an Excel document to the drive. It copied to the drive with no problems, but when I opened the file and edited it from the Gmail drive it didn't save any of my work. It turns out to actually edit documents you store on the Gmail drive you have to copy the file down to your local PC, and then edit it. After editing you have to upload it back to the Gmail server. For me that's too much trouble. It also only seems to allow you to copy or delete files. There is no option to move, create shortcuts, etc...
I've been using FastStone for a year now. Over the years I've used many other image viewers including Irfanview, ACDSee, ThumbsPlus, Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, and more.... FastStone blows all of them away. It has a great interface, great tools, it's fast, and the full screen mode is incredibly helpful. I have it associated with all of my image files, and I have it setup to open Photoshop when I need to do more advanced editing. With FastStone's feature set I find that I can do 90% of my image editing without having to even open Photoshop. I've also been impressed how the author is always adding new (and often very handy) features. Due to this it's definitely a program where you want to check for new versions often. I've installed FastStone on several of my friends and families computers, and all of them love it. In my opinion, no PC is complete without FastStone installed. It's absolutely indispensable.
