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.

Genuine Free Tip - Partition Logic

This is a very handy program for partitioning you hard drive.

Partition Logic.
http://partitionlogic.org.uk/about/index.php

It's a good idea to partition your hard drive on your PC.
Make the C drive for all your programs, and then pick an arbitrary letter, say the Q drive (Get Smart agent Q) for all of My Documents. Then when you Backup Your PC NOW, you can back up just the drive that you want to. This will save you space and time.
Now say you have just bought yourself a nice brand spanking new PC, but didn't think to partition your hard drive, then grab yourself Partition Logic to do the job.

It's free too. Get some.
Cheers. Si.
