ESET Smart Security 4.0

eset smart security00 ESET Smart Security 4.0

ESET Smart Security is, arguably, the best virus detection Software available for PCs. I don’t like to review paid software on Windows guides because this site is all about free stuff; I save the paid software for Windows Forums. However, the reason I am reviewing ESET Smart Security 4.0 is twofold: this program is simply excellent and worth every penny and because I’m giving away six fully licensed copies, in conjunction with ESET, in a competition that starts on Sunday, April 26, 2009.

In this review, I will explain the basic functionality of the software and show why I think it is such an excellent antivirus solution.

snag it01 [Expired] Competition: Two Copies of SnagIt 9 Up for Grabs

I have two copies of SnagIt to share with readers! SnagIt, in my opinion, is the best screen capture tool available for Windows. With SnagIt, you can take screenshots and organize them easily.

More about the program after the competition details.

usblafss1 300x111 USB Lost and Found Helps You Get Your Thumb Drive Back

If you’ve ever lost a USB drive before, this will be something you wish you had. If you haven’t lost one yet, then you should install this on your USB drive as soon as possible. I’ve lost two drives in the past; luckily both drives didn’t have any sensitive information on them, but I wonder if I would have got either back if I’d had this program.

USB Lost and Found simply puts a message up each time you put your drive in, which contains your contact information. The person who finds your drive can then get in contact and return your drive to you. If you are willing to pay $3.49 $8.99 for the Pro version, you get lockdown mode, which password protects your data too.
