CCleaner CCleaner

Ccleaner-easy and effective. 5 stars
I installed CCleaner as a cleaner for browser caches and index.dat files. CCleaner is intelligent in locating SeaMonkey and Opera browser caches, that is not common to all cleaners.It also has an "analyze" mode so that you can see what you will be deleting. It has good speed and I have suffered no adverse effects from using it. I have never used the registry cleaner so I can't comment on that tool. I would recommend CCleaner! It outperforms some of the shareware programs and it's free! Price: Free

Revo Uninstaller Revo Uninstaller

Revo works! 5 stars
I had a major problem uninstalling Adobe Reader. The program's unistaller was non-functional and gave an error. I ran Revo and it cleaned up enough garbage that I was able to install Adobe Reader. It isn't like another program that I tried that eventually tells you that you have to pay to fix the problem.Revo is Free,effective,and clean. Price: Free

Firefox Browser Firefox Browser

Firefox is a browser to have. 4 stars
Firefox is another alternative to IE. I haven't found it to be as fast as Opera. But it's not slow either. There is a speed tweak that sometimes improves surfing speed. There are some excellent themes and add-ons for this open-source browser.It has multi-tabbing and is customisable. Firefox is definitely better than Internet Explorer or any of the IE knock-offs. Security is updated when needed. Firefox is a dependable browser and I recommend it. Price: Free

Opera Opera

Opera a great choice. 5 stars
I had Opera before it was free. Bought two licenses on a two-for-one deal. It was great then and even greater now that it is free. Opera is a safe,actively developed browser. It is fast and customisable. I have found that over the years Opera has improved their page rendering on web sites. I don't see that problem much any more where I surf. There are lots of decorative themes for a variety of personal tastes. Multiple tabs are still a main stay with Opera. It's my favorite web browser and has served me well for 4+ years. Price: Free

Comodo Internet Security Comodo Internet Security

The best free firewall. 5 stars
Comodo Firewall Pro is the best firewall that I have found so far. It has earned a "stealth" rating at Shields Up and has been easy to use. It has an Application Monitor,Network Monitor,Component Monitor,and Application Behavior Analysis. The early versions of Comodo were heavy on resource usage. Comodo listened to the complaints and made subsequent upgrades lighter on resources.Very responsive developers for freeware! This is version firewall has always been rock solid with no conflicts of any kind. Version 3.0 is in beta and sounds promising too. I have tried LookNStop,Kerio,Bit Defender,Sygate,Zone Alarm,Filsec,and a few others and I would take Comodo over any of them! Price: Free

Avast Free Antivirus Avast Free Antivirus

Full featured and free! 5 stars
I switched to Avast and I have been recommended it to family and friends that are looking for an easy,dependable antivirus. Updates are reliable and regular. The really impressive part is the available components. Standard shield(monitor)Web shield,Network shield and E-mail scanner are the components I use in addition to the scanner. The configuration options are very good. I was surprised to see that the Internet Mail and Outlook mail scanners have heuristics. The updates are automatic,but that's another feature that each individual can configure also. Avast Home is packed with components and features,especially for a free program. Price: Free

WinPatrol (Free Edition) WinPatrol (Free Edition)

A superb monitoring tool. 5 stars
I used the free version and bought the Plus version after liking what I saw in the free version. The biggest incentives for my going that route were; the access to file information and real-time monitoring feature.The support is top-notch also! Win Patrol has caught exploits while I was browsing sites that should have been clean. Price: Free
