Great - helped a lot to sort out a computer which literally froze-up whenever its dongle went on to the internet... it was spending hours trying to get and install windows updates from the internet which was proving to be a total complete and... Read full review

Reviewed Sumatra PDF (32-bit) 3.1.2

I wanted a little pdf reader that doesn't nag every day about downloading updates and security fixes which take hours to install. No such probs with this and you can't get much leaner. Epic work - keep it up. Read full review

Reviewed Opera for Windows 91.0.4516.65

An excellent web-browser. I started using SeaMonkey some time ago because it retains the composer feature of netscape but in the end I did not use that much (!), although, ever since, I have used SeaMonkey as my main browser on several machines,... Read full review

Reviewed Avast Antivirus Free 22.4.7175

I am very happy indeed with this program - it updates the virus database via my slow modem line and doesn't hammer my old windows 2000 machine every time you open a file. It found some viruses which had been on the computer for some time before I... Read full review
