5 Useful Yet Free Utilities

“There’s no such thing as a free lunch” – however there is such thing as a free useful software utility. Here are 5 examples:

  1. Irfanview image viewer – simple and effective way of viewing all types of image file. Handles just about any image type and also gives you easy image conversion and simple editing.irfanview
  2. Malwarebytes anti-malware. Mentioned in a previous post, this is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of unwanted parasites on your PC. Keep it up to date though and run it frequently. Use it conjunction with your normal anti-virus software.
  3. Ccleaner – cleans up all the junk files that various programs leave behind, including temporary web files, history and cookies. Helps keep your PC nice and uncluttered.
  4. PDF Creator – An easy way to generate PDF files from your Word documents or web pages etc. Basically works the same way as a print driver, but instead of printing to paper it creates a PDF document for you.
  5. VLC media Player – does for video and music what Irfanview does for photos & images. Simple and efficient player for all your movies and internet streaming. Plays just about everything.
