Sand Box Pc Software Backup

Welcome to my list of PC software that I personally have installed on my computer.

I love free stuff!! Who doesn't? Freeware is just that, free software. It is often created by small teams of developers or as a free version of a professional option for that same software. e.g ….

Open Source is even better than Freeware. It is often a fully functional piece of software that is completely free. There are even Open Source operating system and alternatives to programs like Microsoft Office. e.g ….

Please find below a list of (I believe) useful, fun or interesting software for you computer. All links used below are the same ones I have used to view or download these programs.

PLEASE NOTE:
1. All programs listed are FREE to download and use and are full version of the programs. However, some of the programs also have a 'Paid Option' which means that you can pay money to have more features.
2. If you click on a 'Download Link' the program will start to download (or ask where to be saved depending on your browser settings)
3. Although I have used and tested each of these programs, it is your responsibility to protect your PC against threats and viruses. (See also AVG, SpyBot and Ad-aware)
