VirtualLab Data Recovery

It does its job better then most that could cost the same or more. After I purchased VirtualLab Data Recovery I realized that I will not need another software for data recovering, this one works perfect.

Toolwiz Care

It is small but it has many functions beyond our imagination. The app manager, security, clean up, all very good and worked well without destroying anything important, very impressed.

Windows 8 Release Preview

Windows 8's reliance on unknown hardware remains a challenge because we don't know what those devices will look like. Last, there's no strong evidence indicating that a unified laptop-tablet experience is what people want next. Do people even want tablets that aren't made by Apple? Is the tablet more like a larger smartphone, or a thinner laptop? Is there interest in one operating system that offers both casual touch and robust power modes? There's a long, narrow road ahead for Windows 8, and the Release Preview hasn't gone as far down the path as we were hoping. It could be the next big thing, but there's not much room for missteps.

AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)

* AOL Instant Messenger supports secure, encrypted messaging.
* Offers video and voice chat in addition to exchanging text messages.
* Includes personalization features and various alerts and tickers.
* AOL Instant Messenger lacks a message history, doesn't support offline messages.
* AIM uses a proprietary protocol, can't talk with users of other networks except ICQ.
* The AOL Instant Messenger interface is a mess.

RetroShare 0.5.3c

It's still a bit early in development to tell how this is all going to turn out - but I think Retroshare has huge potential to become another common platform for the general public to communicate with. While it doesn't have the same layout and format as most other social media sites and behaves a little different to instant messenger and download applications - it's privacy abilities and the opportunity to publish without censorship may make the difference in this increasingly exposed and regulated digital world.

PowerArchiver 2012 13.00 Beta 2

I found PowerArchiver, it is free for personal use. Not only could I create an archive easily with folder names, but I could choose between relative and full paths. Very nice. It also seems pretty fast compared to some of the archivers I've seen. What is really impressive is that it handles a ton of archive formats. So, if you are looking for something a little more robust than the occasional archive extraction, I recommend you give PowerArchiver a whirl.

Inno Setup 5.5.0

I'll keep it short and sweet: Inno Setup is one slick piece of software that made the dreaded task of creating a custom installer one heck of a lot easier than it could have been. I've added Inno Setup to my toolbox and I highly suggest you do too.

Comodo BackUp

Comodo Backup is completely free, no catch! Whereas some vendors only give out free programs which have to be upgraded to be really useful does Comodo Backup not have a premium edition or the like. You can upgrade to Comodo Online Backup if you want to have your data backup to Comodo's datacenter.

Comodo Dragon

As with other Chromium browsers (and Google Chrome), Comodo Dragon's user interface is minimalist, leaving a lot of room for the screen, and it renders pages very quickly while using little RAM and CPU. If you're already a fan of Google's browser, are okay with being a few versions behind, and want more security than the standard level, check out the free Comodo Dragon. Those who want the cutting edge, such as Flash integration and more up-to-date bug fixes, might want to stick with plain Chromium.

I don't want to call ooVoo bad because it works and works well. For some users that may be enough, and it's certainly a far cry from the nightmarish video chat problems I've had with programs like Yahoo Messenger. I just don't think it brings enough to the table to warrant being used over leaner alternatives, and the design seems to lack focus. There's no harm in trying it, but I'd stick with Google Chat unless I really felt like I needed the features ooVoo brings to the table.

ZoneAlarm Free

If you need a free security suite, this is definitely a good choice. Just be prepared for the possibility that you'll need additional help with initial installation on a malware-infested system. Comodo Internet Security Pro 2012 is another good choice, with better antivirus protection but a less-sophisticated firewall. Given that they're free, you can try both and make your own choice.

Total Commander 8

* Very powerful.
* Bad marketing.
* Its way better than the website looks.
* Using Windows Explorer will take twice as long for most tasks.

* Becky! comes with many powerful, well thought-out features.

CrossOver Mac 11.1.0 for Mac OS X

The big question I have is, does Crossover bring enough of what I want from Windows or not? I really, really like the premise on which Crossover is based and want it to work for me, but at the same time, the programs that I want it to 'crossover' to my Mac like Window Live Writer or NeverWinter Nights didn't run for me or are not supported. Therefore, when the free trial runs out, I have to make a decision on whether I will go ahead and purchase Crossover or not. If I had to choose today, probably not.

Maxthon doesnít have all of the features we looked for in internet browsers, but it does provide the fundamental features needed for web browsing. It also has tight security and comprehensive help and support if you run into any issues. While Maxthon isnít the fastest or most feature-rich internet browser on the market, it does constitute a good option if you are looking for a change of pace.

Wise Registry Cleaner 7.31

And this one is freeware! One good point it that this one is also portable so you can use it on you pen drive. In the same directory you can keep your 'registry back up', and 'restoration point file'. The interface is very nice, clean and intuitive, you can work on very safe mode, cause dealing with the registry is always risky!. You can also set to automatic safe clean up and exit! You really can feel how much your PC performance improves. I have tried and paid for several registry tools, and by far, this is the best I have ever tried, and it's free!, I think I do not need to upgrade to the premium version.

qBittorrent 2.9.9 for Mac OS

If youíve been searching for that perfect client for Linux then qBittorrent is worth a look. Through a familiar interface, powerful features and stable performance the development team have developed a promising product. For Windows users, plugins (or lack thereof) are irrefutably the main reason to stick with uTorrent at the moment. Then again, if you fancy a change

I have a ton of feeds and Feed Demon takes a while to load them, as opposed to Great News which takes less time and crashes way less. If I could combine the the 2 I'd be a happy man. That said, the fewer feeds you have make FeedDemon pretty good. I can't speak for the paid version though.

Advanced IP Scanner 2.2.224

Need a quick and no-fuss way to list every device on your network, including the IP address and other information about each? Then give this small, free, simple-to-use utility a try. It performs a lightning-fast scan of all IP addresses on your network, or of all devices in an IP range you specify. It then tells you what devices are at what address, and lets you know whether the devices is currently live or idle. It also provides the device's status, machine name, NetBIOS information, ping information, and MAC address of every machine. Advanced IP Scanner includes a few other nice tools as well, including the ability to shut down PCs remotely. There's also a 'Wake-on-LAN' feature that can wake PCs that have network cards that supports that capability.
