Free Software

5 Aug

This isn’t really new but it was new to me and probably to you. I found a site that gives away a full licensed version of software everyday. The software is really free and really licensed. It comes with a read me file containing the registration name and code you need to register it. Awesome!

The site is http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/.

The software ranges from text editors to DVD copiers to games. Each post has a comments section for people who download, or who have downloaded previously to comment on the software. There is also a “thumbs up/thumbs down” rating that you can use to help you decide if the software is any good.

I personally downloaded AnVir’s Task Manager. This is a more robust version of the Task Manager you get with Windows that shows you what programs are running and allows you to end them. This also allows you to take different programs out of the start up routine (for faster boot times). It also automatically searches for processes that could be viruses or trojans or malware. It works very well and even gives you icons in the toolbar with amount of memory being used, chip temperatures and, or course, the percentage of the processor being used.

Of course that program isn’t available today, but I wanted to use the program for a while before I bragged about this site. So far, so good. Check it every day to find you a program you might need!
