These are few software which I have installed on my laptop, which is a perfect combination (according to me) to run run Windows Vista on my laptop smoothly, and give out maximum performance.
1. Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 – Antivirus
As this is most important of all because it protects my system from several threats ranging from viruses, Trojan, spyware, phishing, annoying ads, and so on.
Try using free for 30 days. This costs around $59.95 for 1 PC per year.
Alternative – You can also use Avast Antivirus Home Edition, which is free for home user. Best part of it doesn’t make system slow during virus scan.
2. TuneUp Utilities 2009 – Automate Maintenance
I use it for automatic maintenance of laptop, as it takes care of my system by deleting craps to free space, maintain registry keys, further it speed up system in best possible way, also have so many features.Try it free for 30 days. This costs around $ 49.95 for 1 PC.
Alternative – CCleaner is a freeware which cleans junk n craps from PC and also removes obsolete registry keys. Combine use with Advanced SystemCare 3 which tweaks registry to maximise performance is the best tool to take maximum from PC according to me.
3. Picasa 3 – Photo Management
To deal with maintaining huge collection of photos it is quite helpful. You can organize, edit, create collage, and also share photos with friends. More you can take pictures and videos by webcam, and also make passport size photo through 1-click.Moreover you can find duplicate photos in your collection. It also have its screensaver and also integrates with windows explorer for picture preview. All these comes for FREE.
4. Mozilla Firefox – Internet Browser
Its a best internet browser I have ever seen, which combines almost all things in one, i.e. Fast Browsing, Add-on support, customizable interface, with many many extra features that other browsers can’t provide. In later days I’m going to write about best add-ons. If are an addict to fast internet surfing, go ahead and try this freeware.
