Freeware

Did you know that the ONLY software I have paid for (not including video games) is Microsoft Windows, SugarSync and PowerArchiver for all of my personal computing devices?  I have multiple computers.  Yeah, buying software for each machine would kill anyone’s budget.  Here is a list of free software (Freeware) that I use to complete all the cool and wonderful things that I do.

As with most freeware or open source software these days, developers can’t rely on donations alone.  Thus their installers may include offers for toolbars or other software and games.  This gives the developer a “kick-back” usually monetarily.  Please read the steps of the installers carefully so you don’t end up with unwanted toolbars, software or games.  While I can vouch for the software I promote with the links here, I can’t vouch for any “includes” during installation.  Do yourself a favor and read as you install and you’ll be OK.  If you have questions, you can always ask me.

My Downloads

These are here because I either packaged for simplicity or because I forgot where I got them from but want my visitors to have safe downloads.  I don’t want to send you guys to shady websites to get all infected.

Paint.net Plug-ins – This is a group of plug-ins I use for Paint.net. I put them in a handy installer (cause I’m geeky like that).  When installing on 64 bit windows, use a Zip program and extract files manually.

Remove/Restore Shortcut Arrows (Windows 7/8/10) – No, I didn’t write this, just can’t remember the site I got it from so I uploaded it here – it’s 100% safe.

Got some freeware I should try and possibly add to my list? Simply email me and let me know.

While all the software on this page is free to download from the internet, there are programmers who work very hard to make this software for you. Please consider donating to them if you plan to use their software. Or buy the full versions if you can.
