From this week’s review and comment on the news.  Here’s some free software that can make a big difference on the security for your computer:

  • SlimComputer – to turn off the unneeded programs, toolbars and promotions that come pre-installed on a new PC
  • SlimClearner –  is the world’s first software that lets you clean and optimize Windows systems using a crowd-sourced approach. SlimCleaner uses aggregated-cloud feedback to recommend optimal settings for programs, start-ups and services.
  • SlimDrivers – uses crowd-sourcing to spider and aggregate millions of devices to keep the device drivers up-to-date. Using a cloud-based system, SlimDrivers not only detects when a driver needs updating, but also identifies the proper executable for your system and initiates the driver install automatically.

  • Checks and identifies security issues in your browser.  Very nice software.  It detected some plugins on my machine that were out-of-rev.

  • Filtering for IMAP, POP, Exchange and Web mail accounts
