MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 10.2.1 – An Editor’s Choice At DownloadCrew

March 24, 2017

This FREE partition tool gives you more flexibility (and more options) in comparison to the partition tool that is baked into Windows. For example, an option jumping out at me, that is not a windows option, is that there is a tool for wiping a partition securely, allowing you to delete the data from it (to the point that the data cannot be recovered by any data recovery solution). Other numerous options are reflected in the screenshot below…

Top 10 Best Sellers – Antivirus and Security Software

March 17, 2017

Antivirus software, now often referred to as security (suite) software, due to the innumerable threats, come in a variety of different brands. To get an idea, check out the top ten sellers at Amazon (see source links below).

I personally use a FREE antivirus program called Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition; however, you may feel more comfortable using one of the paid commercial versions such as reflected below.

Antivirus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from: malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious LSPs, dialers, fraudtools, adware and spyware.[2] Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, advanced persistent threat (APT) and botnet DDoS attacks.

CCleaner – The Number-One Tool For Cleaning Your PC

March 16, 2017

When I install a new computer, whether it is one of my computers or an installation for a friend; one of the first programs I install is CCleaner. This program has been around for a long time and its’ reputation precedes itself. This tool, also available as a portable app, is a good tool to keep in your tech toolbox.

CCleaner is a system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware!

(Almost) Everything You Need To Repair Windows Problems In One Small Handy Tool

March 13, 2017

I am really impressed with this portable tech toolbox called Windows Repair Toolbox (see source link below); and, can see it as a real asset to anyone who assists others that are experiencing computer problems.

The developer has created a dashboard of sorts that will assist you with downloading the necessary tools to fix or troubleshoot a PC. Most of the downloaded tools will land in a downloads folder that is a subfolder of the Windows Repair Toolbox folder (which keeps everything together in one place). There are some downloads that are full downloads (for example, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware).  Another nice feature is that you can add your own custom tools.
