Free Software that Works…Download anyone…??

Posted by Dresonic on July 26, 2007

 Media

First let me say we all have needs regardless of the situation we are in and by situation I mean rich or poor. Like the famous song writer Jr Gong puts it “there is something for you”, he is so right because for all you poor people like my self who finds it very upsurd to by software I have a few FREE recommendations for some of your basic needs. For example converting video/music there is a great free software known as MediaCoder that will convert supported formats what ever device you may want to use it one. For me I use it to convert my Video podcasts  like DL.TV so i can watch on my 20 inch tv with my Divx player, it works great.

 Downloading

Downloading from the net can be asstle especially when yu have to keep track of numerous files and if you are a video junky like me from site like youtube and gametrailers then yu will agree that this next free software is totally a saver. FlashGet is one of if not the best free download manager, due to my high level of download sometimes I get slow speeds from sites (or it could be that im being throttled by my internet provider…suspiciouos:-) flash get solve that problem by making several connections to the same file thus increasing download. I have tried this and proved it right.

 Security

Of course everyone is concerned about protecting their computers from virus and worms, well there is a solution. Even though in the end everything comes down to behavior of the user because if you have AV on your system but still continue to bootleg countless software then you are willingly putting yourself in the line of fire ( trust me  I know:).One of the best free AV of course is Avast Free Edition, its really effective plus who wouldn’t like a program that tells you when the virus database is updated ” your virus database has been updated” I love Avast. May i add that AVG is also a worthy competition but heh who cares they are all free right.  

 Organization

Organization is key with having less headaches caused by clustered desktops, need is say more…? Ok I will but not much on this topic. Have you ever had a clustered desktop? Of course you have unless you’re not human, so here is my recommendation : Folder2MyPc. its real simple to use, basically the things you don’t really need on your desktop but would still want to have quick access to them can be moved to My Computer and in the case of Vista Computer. It works great for me and I have had no problems with it the only thing is if you don’t control yourself My Computer can get crowded but hey better and crowded My Computer than and crowded Desktop…exactly I thought so too.
