I use, or have tried, much of the tools mentioned there. kewl_glasses


marymary100 - 1-10-2010 at 22:08

Do you think it would make a good sticky then?


giron - 1-10-2010 at 22:26

Yes.

Go on, you know you want to. :)


waffler - 1-10-2010 at 23:07

Some good progs in there


marymary100 - 2-10-2010 at 09:15

Ok thanks guys. I haven't used any of the suggested programmes myself but it is good to know that the ones you have used have worked as well as the article suggests they will.


I have stickied this thread so that people can find it easily.


giron - 2-10-2010 at 12:14

It might be a good idea to lock the thread to prevent unscrupulous people posting off topic comments.

Naturally I'd never do such a thing myself, but certain others would, I'll mention no names ;), but you know as well as I do that a disturbingly large number of threads do end up becoming a political smear campaign against Obama. :)

It might be as well to read the comments at the bottom.
Plus it doesn't mention Irvanview.


giron - 2-10-2010 at 22:11

What are you on about ? confused2

I've read the comments at the bottom, here they are, just in case some of you haven't seen them ..........

The good news is that there's no mention of Obama there, but what's it got to do with free software?

To be honest, it looks more like a blatant advertisement to me, but I'm no expert.

Some of those I use and can recommend, Like victor, I'm surprised at Irfan view's omission. I'd have also thought that the likes of ZoneAlarm Free or Comodo would have got a look in too.

Whilst we're on free stuff, has anyone any experience with The Ultimate Troubleshooter? I've just found it on a lappy that I'm re-furbishing for someone and, on the surface, it looks to be useful.

waffler Your link did not work for me.


LSemmens - 4-10-2010 at 13:58

You got something against hidden addresses, waffler?


giron - 4-10-2010 at 18:28

Hidden addresses, marvellous aren't they ? :)


Faolan - 4-10-2010 at 18:36

Hmm half the comparisons on that list are misleading at best, or downright inaccurate at best. Nothing wrong with most of the software itself but whoever compiled that list should actually use the software before trying to compare them.

Notepad ++ is as good as Dreamveaver shocked_yellow

Karl is, sadly, unable to tell us how great Dreamweaver really is, so we'll have to guess, but, from my dealings here, I'd say that she is pretty fantastic! ;)


finchart - 26-11-2010 at 10:54

does anyone else feel guilty for NOT using the programs?confused2


LSemmens - 26-11-2010 at 13:50

Never!

It's rather good. :) I read some good reviews from sites I trust, before I used it)

Make sure you have the option to install the "System care" program unchecked, though. Unless you want it, that is. (Doing some of the things it does, like cleaning the registry, COULD break things).


LSemmens - 25-8-2015 at 12:30

Far Out, Katzy! Are you trolling for fishies or something? This is an OOOOOOOLDDDDD thread! :D


Katzy - 25-8-2015 at 14:43

I thought it was a kinda "Good freebies" thread. :D
