At the moment, the most popular media players are definetely Windows Media Player and iTunes. Nevertheless, Winamp is also a pretty big player in this market and until a little while ago I was really sure that Winamp was the best media player around. But now VLC has made me think twice about that. However, I still have a few arguments why Winamp is the best mediaplayer, and not VLC…

These files also include information about your browsing experience. CCleaner deletes these files so you can use this space for useful things and to secure your privacy.

Hitman Pro Anti-Spyware Combo

The downside of having a popular OS like Windows is that people make virusses and spyware for it. And because you generally don’t know if you’ve downloaded some spyware on your computer, you’ll need software to detect it, and to remove it. One of the best ways to do this is using “Hijack This”, but it is quite hard to use, so you probably want something more user friendly. The problem of the easier software is that most companies only offer some sort of a demo version for free, so you’ll need different programs to find all spyware. This is exactly what Hitman Pro offers.

Hundreds of extracting tools exist, of which most are free. There aren’t a lot of differences between them, but Extract Now does differ from the other free extracting tools. It’s small, it’s powerful, without any kind of ads and it´s incredibly easy to use.

Burn any image file to CD/DVD with ImgBurn

Posted by Nick in Freeware, Tech on March 6th, 2008.

Before I discovered ImgBurn, I was looking for a freeware application that could burn a DVD from .VOB files. I knew Nero Burning Rom could do it, but that one isn’t free. Luckily I disovered ImgBurn, a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application, that can burn anything to anything.
