  1. Review - Microsoft OneDrive for Windows

    17.3.5951.0827 (Oct 1, 2015)

    I used to trust MS but since the advent of spying on Win 7 users & the absolute removal of any privacy on Windows 10 I don't anymore - Most of the times my docs are safe on multiple external drives/ network- OneDrive has its uses but keeping confidential documents or files is no longer one of them.

    No such thing as a free lunch remember ~

  2. Review - Mozilla Thunderbird for Windows

    38.3.0 (Oct 1, 2015)

    Great basic client - No problems on Windows 10, handles multiple addresses with ease, no frills but very stable & reliable.

  3. Review - 7-Zip (64-bit)

    15.08 Beta (Oct 1, 2015)

    Its very good but not IMO as good as Winrar, but I don't think anything is - Great for free though!

    @ - gregzeng Your impressive list however changes nothing, I still feel Winrar is better, it's more refined & feels finished unlike 7-Zip whose GUI is hardly 'State Of The Art' - Changing a text file in a compressed file using Winrar is easier for example - I like 7-Zip lots & install it on many PC's but I will always prefer Winrar which I paid for & actually would do again - Nuff said ~

  4. Review - Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10

    v1.0.1 (Oct 1, 2015)

    As good as O&O Shut-Up (and very similar) & also portable & it's worth running them both as this picks up a few bits O&O misses & vice-versa - No adware etc. - Great little program!

  5. Review - CCleaner for Windows

    5.10.5373 (Sep 25, 2015)

    IMO CCleaner is very safe - I've personally installed it on heaps & heaps of PC's & use it many times a day on all my PC's without ever having an issue - Take care if you use the registry cleaner part of it but frankly that's never done any damage either as it's pretty benign.

    I've used CCleaner fro the very beginning is and is by far the best there is, how it can 'destroy your computer' I do not know - I've never had anyone I know complain about it either - It's far, far safer than any of the so called 'clean & speed-up programs you can buy - Used it from XP - Windows 10.

    Best crap remover pay or free in the known universe.

    Always 5 stars.
