Bill Pfaff’s PC Solutions
Software I use and recommend  To quote their site, “Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.”  I’ve used other photo editors in the past, including Photoshop, but prefer the speed, usability and price of this one. Click here to get it from filehippo.com.    Malwarebytes is an effective tools for ridding your PC of all sorts of malware. It comes in two versions: a free one that you can update and use to perform “on-demand scans” to rid your PC of malware.   Click here for the official site, or go to filehippo.com to get it.     Pirisoft’s CCleaner is a great cleanup tool for Windows, one that goes beyond the Disk Cleanup tool built into Microsoft Windows. It can remove garbage files from your PC and optimize the Windows registry with its registry cleanup tool. It also allows you to see what programs start every time you turn on your PC, and lets you selectively disable ones you don’t need. Used regularly, it’s quick and easy. To find it go to CCleaner.com or to filehippo.com.    Macrium Reflect is my disk imaging software of choice. It easily creates images of your entire hard drive so when disaster strikes you can recover easily. It can also clone drives, create incremental backup images, etc. It’s one of the easiest to use, and more importantly, it works very well. To find it, visit macrium.com.
