Eudora v4.3

The popular email client's expected effectiveness in dealing with multiple mailboxes, address books, and accounts is all here, along with a lot of additional messaging power. You'll find HTML 
text formatting for fancy message layouts and stationery, URL recognition, as well as inline images and support for file attachments. Eudora's time-tested interface will help newcomers to get started quickly, and old-timers will feel right at home. 

Eudora for Windows. With this new release, Qualcomm has changed the way you register and use the program. Three options in one package are now available. You can use it as the familiar free email client (with some functional limitations but still very useful), you can choose to pay for the program (enabling all functions), or you can select an option that lets you use all the functions of Eudora in exchange for viewing advertisements while using it

AVG Anti-Virus provides excellent protection against computer
viruses. This free program includes fine documentation and is a strong
all-around contender in the field of anti-virus utilities. It runs constantly
in the background, checking files and removable disks before you
access them. You can also run complete disk scans manually or by
using the built-in scheduler. In addition to scanning your boot sector,
memory, and files for known viruses (including macro viruses), AVG
Anti-Virus employs heuristic analysis to detect unknown viruses,
worms, and Trojan horses. It offers special support for Microsoft
Exchange and Outlook. Also has automatic updates online.

Tweak Revisited Tweak Revisited is an interesting and free tool that's intended as a
companion to Microsoft's TweakUI Control Panel applet. It's a snap to
use, and extends your ability to customize your desktop. It doesn't address
any of the tweaks that are offered by that very popular utility, but instead
adds several of its own. Use it to change Windows splash screens,
registered owner information, and the Internet Explorer title bar caption.
You can change many of the standard Windows desktop icons, change
icons for individual folders, change the display size for desktop icons,
and view bitmap icons as miniature file images. Tweak Revisited also
allows you to apply some useful context-menu tweaks. Other features
include the removal of temp files and cookies, as well as a cookie
manager for Internet Explorer.

GuruNet v1.0.2.58
GuruNet is a free one-click information service that works when you're on
the Internet. When the GuruNet application is active (it's based in your
system tray), just hold down the Alt key and click on a word in any
Windows document. GuruNet springs into action and pops up a window
that quickly analyzes the word in context using its Web-based dictionary,
thesaurus, and encyclopedia. GuruNet might also show you Internet links
that have already been associated with that word, let you search the Web
for more information, or display real-time data such as news, sports,
weather, or stock quotes. It's really quite amazing to see it do its magic.
GuruNet is a great alternative to search pages or traditional reference
sources and is bound to find a permanent home in many system trays
around the world 

Some users of Pentium 100's with less than 48 MB of ram have reported
marked system problems. In most cases GuruNet seems to slow these
systems drastically. Myself included.

Steve Gibson's OptOut?
Several weeks ago a scare swept through the Internet community regarding
alleged Internet "spying" being done by a very popular advertising system
known as "Aureate" (now renamed to "Radiate".) Since the Aureate system is
"carried" into the user's PC by more than 400 popular freeware programs (lik
Go!Zilla, GetRight, CuteFTP, and others), and is currently installed and
running in over TWENTY-TWO MILLION PC's!!, the threat that this
software was "spying" on its users was of great and immediate concern. Click
here to learn more and to see some screenshots. Because I do not want to
be parranoid alone. Of course being parranoid is a good thing to be
when the whole world is against you!
