Anybody know of good free downloads of:


Hav downloaded 'spyblaster' but to upgrade a fee has to be paid.

Are there any 'good' truly 'free' downloads out there?

Will I be able visit the spyblaster site again in a couple of months and download it again for free? - thereby obtaining an 'upgrade'?

click here For a few more options.
Assuming you mean Spywareblaster, the free version updates just fine, you just have to do it manually as the autoupdate is part of the licenced package.

click here Avast free Anti-Virus, I have read some excellent reviews on it recently. click here Sunbelt/Kerio Firewall, very stable it functions as a full version then after a month it reverts to a free edition with reduced features, the firewall still remains an excellent product & you wont miss the features that are removed.

After upgrading my PC to a dual core processor have had some problems with free utilities crashing so have been looking at alternatives.

Came across "a-squared" click here
which seems to be a pretty decent antispyware. Its free and the signature file is updated quite frequently.

click here Ewido when you install untick auto update and real time scanning and it then becomes a free program. You need to update manually before each scan. This program is as about as good as it gets.
