Set up your PC for free updated version

This posting is a revision of an earlier one, some of the links have needed updating others have had to be replaced and I've added a few more bits that may be of use, as before I hope it will be of help.

Many of these downloads are pretty big so if you don't have broad band I'd recommend you start with a download manager like Download Express click here or Leechget click here , they will ensure you don't lose anything if you lose your link at any point. Have a look and consider how much it would cost to buy the equivalent name brand products.

Add Proxomitron to the popup (and adverts) stopper.

It's in the downloads section.

Nice to see RegscrubXP is still at the mirror sites, if you go to The old Lexun site, you get somebody trying to sell you silk flowers.

No competition -pops-, but as I'm sure Pesala would agree.

(With apologies if I've missed them listed above somewhere!)

A print manager called "Fineprint"... absolutley brilliant...

and a pfd creator called pdfFactory

both available at click here

These are both unlimited time trials that leave a small advert at the bottom of pages, effectivly in a "footer"

Also, for office suite, click here The full version is about £30 nad has loads of extras. The free one is very good, reads MSOffice docs, and has an excellent backup system.

Good luck,
