Favorite Freeware

I finally did it. After too many years of “could you just look at my computer?” I finally have my new “Swiss-Army-Knife-on-a-Flash-Drive,” dedicated to the Quick Fix– seven folders of categorized software for all that ails a PC.


It is not the perfect list, and it is only recently bootable, but below are the contents of my “Freeware” folder– a baker’s dozen top freeware titles, complete with download links. Now, all I have to do is just plug it in to a USB port, and drag-and-drop the folder to their Desktop– no fast internet required. All you need to do is get an 8 GB flash drive, make your own folders, and download these files to a single folder. Your friends and family will think you are a genius.
