101 fantastic freebies for your PC
Software is expensive, right? Well, not today my friends. Those fab guys and gals over at PC World have spent a whole bunch of their very valuable time and energy researching the best free downloads for your PC, and have compiled a list of the '101 fabulous freebies' that you can download today, right now, no problem. And NOW is a great word.
What's on the list? Well, what do you want?
There's everything from security software to games and file management. The complete list, organized by category, is below. I can personally vouch for DVD Shrink, a very quick and easy way to make back-up copies of your DVDs (which are invaluable for taking on vacations, road trips if you don't want to lose your originals). My wife loves organizing her many photos with Google Picasa . And AVG is a terrific free virus application. But, here's the list...you have the right to feel like a kid in a candy store!
