Overview
Advanced WindowsCare is an all-in-one freeware program, offering registry cleaning, hard disk cleanup, spyware protection, privacy protection.
 
Review
 
I’m always a little bit skeptical about programs that can do too many things, the so called all-in-one software. Advanced WindowsCare Personal Edition is free for personal use and provides registry cleaning, disk cleanup and even spyware protection.
After using it a few times there’s something that impressed me: it’s lightning fast and extremely easy to use, you can find and fix your system’s problems in just a few minutes. Another good thing is that …

Overview
Process Tamer is a freeware program that allows you to monitor and control the CPU usage of the processes that are running in your PC.
 
Review 

The Windows Task Manager  gives you some basic info about the CPU usage of your processes, but the adjustments you can make are minimal. That’s why I chose to try Process Tamer, a freeware program that would allow me to be in control, set rules and so on.

Here we go again, the Freeware Mission continues! Now I am going to choose a free audio converter, something that could convert my audio files from one format to another and maybe let me extract the audio from video files. I’m not asking too much, am I?
 

The freeware program that I chose is Any Audio Converter – it’s freeware and can convert the most popular audio file formats with no problem whatsoever. The output formats that it supports are more than enough: MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC and OGG. And the …

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 …
