    I think most of the tools on there can be gained for free Eddie! I'll do a search for thread someone started a while ago about utilities and post back.

    Edit;

    This might get you started, Ed.

    Yup looks to me like the free ultimate boot disk, except you have to pay for it :blink

    Agree, you can get this type of software online for free.

    It's going to be either the free ultimate boot disk or the CD version (cut down version) of ERDC that they give out for free. They sell the items (even though it's free) and what's worrying is that people buy them.

    It reminds me of what a high ranking person once said when questioned about why high prices in the UK, his reply "Because they'll pay it"

    People buy all kinds of free software

    I was in PC world the other day and I heard a guy saying to the salesman I wiped my computer and re-installed everything the only thing that hasnt I cant have backed up properly was nero.

    So what did the salesman sell him Nero 7

    you can download of the internet for free, granted its not the complete version but you can still use it to play dvds and create backup dvds and data disks.

    So what else do you want it for? nothing

    So the poor guy ended up paying £9.99 for a free thing.

    I have always found the full version of Nero better than the trial, but each to there own :biggrin

    Lets face it consumers, for the most part, will stick to one brand of software because that don't want to change, ie have to have MS Office (when for basic/everyday use there are alternatives like open office), etc.

    I agree Ken

    Everyone in my family with a pc uses IE for web browsing but I use firefox because I think its better, slightly more secure etc

    I also use open office and have MSOffice and open office came free with mt comp :D
