This is a topic that I have never seen come up before, so I thought id break the ice pirate.gif yarr

What is the coolest, zaniest, and most rewarding Internet Freebie you have ever found? dance.gif

For me (possibly because I'm a tech) it would have to be http:/trendmicro.com/housecall

Trendmicro has saved my butt many times! Trend micro has a vast array of FREE tools to wage war against almost any computer problem! ph34r.gif

The free online virus scanner is a deadly asset, coupled with HijackThis, you can take out almost any of those pesky viruses! laugh.gif

One of the best Freebie I have found is LogMeIn. It has a variety of features and products, I mainly use the Remote Desktop and file transfer system.

It's based on Java and runs very well, the nice part is that it's http based so the only software you need client side is a web browser, which allows it to be run across networks that generally do not allow computers to host "servers."

Another feature it has is Hamachi, which is it's free VPN utilities, very easy to use and powerful.

Open Office, GIMP and Rocket Dock are ones that I use. You can get GTA 1 and 2 for free from Rockstar's website.

I did my best to come up with something not from M$ & not directly related to computers but here's the best I could do. I recently found some very handy tool that saved me lots of time. SyncToy is used to synchronize content of two folders or two locations on a computer & there a few different ways it can sync.

I use it to backup one hard drive on some other hard disk.

SysInternals page file & registry defragment tool.
It does speed up the system & i guess if the page file is fixed-size, you only need to defrag it once in a life time! (under investigation)
