Recommended Programs

You really should have these on your Computer!

Everyone wants you to run the mix of software they run, so its often difficult to know who to follow. I guess the main reason lots of people follow my advice is that it wont cost you anything in monetary terms, all the programs i use and recommend are free to download and use, and you wont sacrifice any features, functionality or security by using them, best of all it can be done at no cost, well just a little time and effort.

There's nothing in it for me!

I should also mention that i have no association with any of these companies whatsoever, i do not get paid anything for these recommendations nor do i receive any benefit if you click on one of the links provided.
