Are you a PC or Microsoft Windows user? Or are you using Windows XP, Windows Vista or the newest Windows 7? Can you count how many free software are you using on your Windows so you can do your work more productive or more convenient without having trouble with license or copyright? Okay, lets start with the internet browser like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, or Internet Explorer Updates. Internet Messenger like Yahoo Messenger, AIM, Google Talk, Skype, Windows Live Messenger and many more out there. Then come multimedia player like iTunes, Quick Times, Winamp, Real Player, and K-lite Codec Pack. Then many more like Compression tools, Anti Spyware, Firewall and Security, Developer Tools, File Transfer tools, Backup tools, Media Tools, Office tools, Drivers. I cannot even say it one by one example because it’s too many out there. And of course it is free!
Okay now you can imagine how much the free software out there. Now with that many software to support you, now you have two problems. First when you reinstall your windows, this is a public secret that windows need to reinstall after a certain time like once a year or twice a year if you want the best performance of Windows, you need to find and download all software that you using. Or if you really took your time to keep the master installer in your harddrive, maybe you just need to install them. If not you really need to search it and download it again.
Second, you need to keep the software up to date, because of security issues, bugs fix or new features. And you will have a hard time to update all the software one by one. Some of them have automatic updates feature, but some of them are not. And you need to download it again from the original sites and install it again.
I have the answer for two problems i described above. Have you heard or visited FileHippo? That site offer you to download all Windows best free software for FREE! And the best thing is they always up to date. Also they provide a free software to check the update of your installation. Just download it and install and it will automatically index your installation and find the updates on their server. Save a lot of your time. And if you just reinstall your Windows, just visit their site and download all what you need.
PS: I don’t have any affiliation with FileHippo. I just happy with their service and really sad if they down because of unsupported. And this is my way to support them and i love to share the information for you.
