CutePDF Writer CutePDF Writer

Does what it says 4 stars
This does everything it says. It creates pdf documents, is easy to use, and does not have any watermarks or popups. It would be good if it were possible to edit the author name etc. or to apply document restrictions, but it is still good despite this. Price: Free

ZoneAlarm Free ZoneAlarm Free

I used to think this was the best..... 4 stars
This firewall is pretty good. It has a good interface and is simple. I think it's overhyped though. I don't think the security is the best. I passes most firewall tests, but the main drawback is the lack of program control. This means that a trojan can "hijack" other allowed programs without being detected, and as a result, security is compromised. It is not very configurable, though this does make it perfect for the beginner- you can get it up and running very easily. If you don't know anything about firewalls, this is the best program for you. I had some trouble configuring ZA to share network resources. To sum up- it's a good firewall. Simple, and easy to set up. Good for the rookie, but advanced users will want more configurability and features. Price: Free

Ad-Aware Free Antivirus Ad-Aware Free Antivirus

Only 4*. why???? 5 stars
Why SnapFiles have only given this 4 stars is beyond me. Its brilliant! It is updated regularly, tells you exactly what it doing, and most importantly it removes spyware! With a simple interface and two levels of scanning, it should be useful for even rookies. Price: Free

WebMon WebMon

Simple yet full of features 5 stars
This is the best web page monitoring program out there. Unlike other programs, this one works on everything, even RSS feeds. It uses a very simple interface that is well laid out. It has all the right features, as if the developer read my mind and saw exactly what I wanted. You get a little pop up, you can pick sound effects, tell it which page to open, set how often it checks for updates to pages, and specify which part of the HTML to look for changes. It is most definitely the best out there. Price: Free

Very nice and original 5 stars
I couldn't believe just how well it worked. I tested it be making a recovery file for a folder, and then made changes to the original to see if the program could recover them. It worked like a charm! It even recovered files that I had deleted from the folder; and this was at the 25% redundancy level (dictates how much recovery is possible). It is also possible to set the redundancy level above 100% so that you can recover files even if the ECC recovery file itself is corrupted! The size of the recovery file is significant, however. If you wanted to backup a CD, the ECC file would be approximately 200MB. This may seem a bit large, but as a "backup for you backup" its not too bad. Personally I think you should still make a full backup of important files- the program does have its limitations and is really only used for data loss due to digital corruption; it won't work if you accidentally delete large chunks of data. This is a unique program and worth getting. Price: Free

Brilliant. 5 stars
Works perfectly, does what it says. Finds lots of unused registry entries and gets rid of them. It keeps a backup in case something gfoes wrong, but nothing has ever gone wrong with mine. Price: Free
