Heres a list of programs I recommend. Useful for people who want some good programs.


Security

eTrust Armor 2005 (http://www.my-etrust.com/downloads.cfm)
eTrust made a great anti-virus/firewall here. You can make it so when a program wants to send a packet through the net you get a pop-up telling you the IP it's going to and whether to allow it or not. I highly recommend this program. 10/10

Ad-Aware SE 1.05 (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/)
I have the professional version of this which includes Ad-Watch. I can safely say this is one of the best anti-spyware programs around. It checks your registry unlike most anti-spyware programs. 10/10

WPE Pro
This is a freeware packet sniffer. Has a great layout and easy to use. i highly recommend this to paranoid people! 10/10

Spybot Search and Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html)
Good at removing dialler, etc.

Bazooka Spyware Scanner (http://www.download.com/Bazooka-Adware-and-Spyware-Scanner/3000-8022-10247782.html?part=dl-bazooka&subj=dl&tag=button)
Comes with access to a database to show you how to remove any nasty remaining spyware.


Messengers

Trillian (http://www.trillian.cc/downloads/)
With trillian you don't need msn, icq, AIM, yahoo or irc! It's all in one here and with a few good features. I recommend this to people who have a lot of messengers and not enough room on their desktop. There is not many bugs in this. 9/10



Computer Cleanups

Tune-Up Utilities 2004 (http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities/)
This is a good program that allows you to speed up your comptuer greatly. You can use their one-click cleanup shortcut on your desktop to fix your comptuer in no time! 10/10

O&O Defrag (http://www.oo-software.com/en/download/index.shtml)
This is one of the best defragmenting program here. I just used it and my computer is going better than the one microsoft gives ya. You get a good customisable defrag with a on screen layout (with custom legend). 9/10

Computer Cleaner (http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1015)
Made by yourself *bows* Deletes a ton of los, files and unneeded things from your hard drive exetremely fast. Simple design and user interface.

And if you don't have FireFox already GET IT NOW! (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/) :P

Post other programs you want on here.... I'll add them when I'm bored. This isn't a complete list... I only added some that were top of the list material.

actually i think you'll find yahoo is a lot better. by almost 100%

google has something like 130 millio search results in total.

where as yahoo as 250 million.

if your looking for something yahoo will bring up a lot more results almost doubling the chance of finding you what you want.

As for the proggie list: Winamp, everyone knows what this is, but it should still be in the list.

What version of Linux do you run? (Knoppix, Redhat...?)


Kudos to the list

These are the best programs that you don't have to take chances with.

Firewall: Zone Alarm Created by the good people at Zone Labs, The firewall is free and the bought version comes is some uber features such as Hacker locator, If someone tries to hack you (Which they can't with Zone Alarm) it will tell you were they are located based on their IP address.

Anti-Virus: Norton Antivirus, A lot of people don't like Norton because it takes a while to scan your whole computer but! It automatically will tell you when a virus is detected or when a virus is detected in your email and if it was downloaded onto your computer it will tell you what actions it took to try and stop it (But of course then you must manually scan with Norton to find and delete it)

Spyware/Adware remover: Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware.

sorry to disagre but the antivirus is a virus, it takes all your cpu and after a while you won't be able to use the computer or uninstal the antirus, go read the comment for this antivirus if you dont belive me.

These are good but for some reason adaware always freezes my computer at the very last step. Is this supposed to happen?

ya thoes are good but they are major spywere themselves. Once u download them they send info back to their servers and whoever owns that program knows what u r doin.

i downloaded Adware Personal SE and it kept tryin to get on my other comp cuz im linked thru a wireless connection

Thankfully i have a firewall


so just to warn u all be carefull of what spywere and adwere u download.
