The Latest Freebies for Windows


Some people think that you get that you get what you pay for. Not much could be farther from the truth!

The statement is based upon ignorance of freebies and the fact that OFTEN  FREEWARE performs better than their commercial counterparts or at least as well! 

In addition, when something is free, you can learn to put up with their idiosyncracies when you haven't paid a cent of your hard-earned cash for them.


The following are not necessarily the best I have found, but just the latest. I will try to remember to give a link to my past discoveries when I am finished writing this post. Give them a try!

SYSTEM UTILITIES
Have you ever found missing items from your desktop and did not know how to get them back?

Fixwin repairs with ease common annoyances related to Windows Explorer, the internet, Media Player, and other system tools.

Ketarin scans your installed programs and checks and downloads the latest updates.

Teracopy claims to copy files faster than Explorer can. It also has advanced features that allow you to pause and resume transfers too.

Ultimate Windows Tweaker lets you optimize every little corner of your Windows 7 or Vista OS [OS means operating system for the unitiated].

Win7 Library Tool enhances the built-in function in Windows 7 to organize files and folders into a few special groups called Libraries.

Better Paste automatically strips hidden formatting from a document you may be copying from, to paste into another document.

Portable Ubuntu Remix will allow you to run Linux applications seamlessly on your Windows machine.

Wizmouse which makes your mouse's scrollwheel work with whatever window your mouse is hovering over, active or not.

more later.... Do you have a freebie that you really like? Tell us why in the comments section.

I am a former teacher who knows great software. I gave seminars on the topic!

Simon Hensby is a successful "failure" in my eyes. He gave up his regular job because his autistic kid was having trouble and could not cope in regular school. He lived on part-time jobs just to keep going.

In the meantime he was creating useful educational software that an autistic child could use. Now millions of people and schools enjoy what he sacrificed to create!

Now to me that is success! SEE MORE AT SCHOOLGENIUS

If you try them and have some comments, they are certainly VERY WELCOME! I am signing up today so that I can see how it works and report back to you. The other one I am familiar with like this is Airset.com. I loved airset until I realized that geeks like me would have no problem with it BUT perhaps the average computer user may. -Charles
