Hello there my freeware friends! Last week I was thinking about how many freeware programs I have installed in my PC, after the first batch of 51 free programs and the second one of 72 programs installed in the Freeware Mission. I have over 80 freeware programs installed in my Windows XP PC right now, but which of these programs are the ones that I like the most?

There are three freeware programs that were interesting enough to be tested: FileHippo.com Update Checker, UpdateStar and SUMo (Software Update …

Hello friends! I’m proud to report that the Freeware Mission is going as planned, maybe even better. Three episodes to go until I’ll give you the list of essential freeware programs that I installed in my PC during this quest. The program that I’m going to choose now is a universal video and audio transcoder, something that allows you to convert various video and audio file formats with ease.

Hello friends, welcome to the final days of the Freeware Mission, trying to have a freeware only PC. I’m going to add a free video converter to the list today, the best one, of course. I’ve been using AutoGK for a few years now, but I feel it’s somehow “old”, it didn’t develop as fast as the things around it.

The freeware program that I chose is MeGUI – it’s open source, and supports the best codecs and containers available at this time. It’s also very reliable. Here’s a quick presentation …
