This is my site for links to Genuine Free Stuff as well as some useful advice. I use most of these programs regularly. It's good gear. It's all worth having.

** April 2014. Major revamp and update for relevance happening, especially now that support for Windows XP has ended, and now that we all are addicted to our Android phones. A lot of old stuff is going.

This post in particular started this whole website...

I have been building and using computers since about the Ice Age, from DOS 3 through to Windows 7.
I have been mucking about with mobile phones for quite some time, using Symbian S60 and then Android.

Press F8 at boot to start in safe mode - Windows XP and 7
To see the details of you computer, download, install and run 'Speccy' - shows Operating System, Firewall, Anti-virus and hardware.
If you think you have a virus, start here 'Free Online Virus Scan'. Try any or all, and be patient.

Here we go. All the free stuff I've found over the years.

Well the title of this first post says it all.

I have been building gaming computers for 20 years or more and I love mucking about with software and hardware. Over the years I have found a lot of tricks and a lot of good free stuff.

I guess it's because I have helped a few beginners set up and debug their computers that I felt the need to start writing all this stuff down.
So without further ado, here are the free programs and some good advice that I can recommend.

** I'm having a big revamp as of April 2014 because .... Support for Windows XP ends April 8, 2014.
So I've dumped the old rig and gone to a new PC running Windows 7 and I like it.
I now have all my Android apps info here, as well as all the free things I currently run.
A lot of old posts are going or being seriously updated.

Although I started this website in 2008, I am revamping the old posts and moving them forward in time and keeping them relevant.

Cheers. Si.
