Links

This section gives a few links to some useful tools all home based computer users should consider.

CCleaner – a free program to clean all junk files from your PC. Depending on your PC use we recommend running this program once every 2 weeks.

AVG Anti-Virus – a free Anti-virus / Anti-spyware program which gives quite a good level of security for general home based internet users.

Avast Anti-Virus – another free Anti-virus / Anti-Spyware program which is a little less intensive on system resources. Better for slower machines running on minimal amounts of RAM. Remember to register for your free registration key every 12 months.

Microsoft Security Essentials – a free anti-virus / Anti-spyware / Malware protection suite.

Spybot search & destroy – a very good spyware scanner and cleaner, and once again, its free.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware – a very good Anti-Malware scanner. Ideal for removing some of the more stubborn infections other scanners don’t pick up.

Open Office – A very good free alternative to Microsoft Office 2003 for those who cannot afford the original Microsoft prices.

VPN’s (Virtual Private Networks)

Anchor Free’s Hotspot Shield – A free VPN that will encrypt your Internet activity while using wifi hotspots or unsecured wireless networks. A good choice for most but can be very slow at times due to the number of users it has. Pros: its Free and does the job  –  Cons: There is a limit to the bandwith you can use with it (3GB over 30 days I think) and there is also the annoying ads that keep popping up from time to time on the banner

For other VPN alternatives please contact us and we will try to advise you as to which service will be best for your needs.
Paid for VPN Service: VPN Authority
