available for free. Freeware, as they are called, mostly correspond to
the open source software type. One word of WARNING to the Internet beginners,
you should be very cautious and investigate BEFORE downloading any free programs.
They might contain spyware and adware hidden in them. This will affect your
computer performance, your privacy and get you in trouble.
Below are some recommended freeware and shareware programs that have
been tested and used by myself, and have been found safe as well as useful. They
are freeware at the present time:
