    PROGRAMS FOR VISTA

    LOTS OF FREE PROGRAM CAN BE FOUND AT P.C WORLD.COM

    JUST GO TO THE SEARCH BOX AND TYPE IN VISTA DOWNLOADS AND A LIST OF 39 AS OF JULY 2007 WILL COME UP. THERE ARE QUITE A FEW THAT ARE FREE AND SOME THAT WOULD COME IN HANDY UNDER SHAREWARE IF NEEDED TO FIX A COMPUTER AND YOU HAD NO OTHER CHOICES.

    ZONEALARM- FIREWALL

    AVG VIRUS

    AVG-ANTI VIRUS ( WHICH IS THE SPYWARE,MAL-WARE,ROOTKITS PROGRAM)

    SPYBOT 5.1

    GOOGLE EARTH

    GOOGLE DESKTOP

    BELARC

    IE PRIVACY KEEP

    All these are version from after date march 2007.

    ANOTHER PROGRAM TO PUT ON IS JAVA 6.1 AND TO GET THIS YOU MUST GO TO JAVA sun AND DOWNLOAD.

    Again be sure use newest version for vista.

    WHERE TO DOWLOAD AVG AND SPYBOT, IE PRIVACY KEEP:

    BOTH FOUND AT http://www.grifsoft.com/ or go to yahoo and enter in search box - AVGfree and the first or 1. Item that is listed is the web site for you to go to.

    Once there you will see advertisement for both free & paid plus updates, at the left upper side you’ll see download for free basic protection, click the orange download bar and this will get the free program for AVG virus

    Under that picture you will see the words AVG anti-spy ware Free edition the writing is in orange, click it for your download of AVG anti spy ware program

    If for any reason someone just needs the updates to the current program and cannot download on their machine, a person a look to bottom right corner of page and find them, put on jump drive and just plug in and AVG will find it when you click update on the program. (this is just for the virus program)

    Spybot search & destroy found at www.safer-networking.org

    http://www.snapfiles.com/ go to the freeware section, look for Internet Cleanup, then look for the software called IE Privacy Keeper

    AND THESE ARE HELPFUL TOO: And also go to http://www.glaryulitilies.com/ for free registry repair programs or to http://www.snapfiles.com/ and to their freeware section to find them also.
