Free Great Computer Tools
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In this article, I will try to share my experience about free computer and software tools available on the Internet.

Microsoft office suite includes ms word, excel and power point. New computers usually come with trial version of Microsoft Office. Buyers had chance to buy office after trial would expire and if not then they would have nothing to edit or make new documents. Now there is a great free alternative of word, excel and power point. It’s called Open Office. It can be used to make new documents and can also open documents made in ms word, excel and power point. Open office works for both windows and Mac. It can be downloaded for free from Open Office website.

The next free and great tool to use is Picasa. It’s a free photo editing tool. That’s existing photos can be changed and saved. It can also be used for organizing photos in the form of albums. This tool is being offered by Google. It can be downloaded from Google website. Another alternative for photo editing is Adobe Photoshop but it is not free. A trial version can be downloaded for testing. It’s usually not cost effective for personal use because it is normally used in professional work.

Audacity is the next tool that is very nice and on top of that it is free. This tool can be used to convert audio into a computer file. The user needs a mic and a computer and any sound can be converted into a file. In other words, this tool can be used to store data on computer. The tool has a lot of control to balance the audio. This is a great tool to transfer audio memories to CD, USB, laptop and desktop.

The next top free tool is Panda Antivirus. I have personally tested it and is great against malicious websites. A lot of spyware and viruses come from websites when users visit them. This antivirus has passed all its tests compare to other free and famous antivirus programs. It can be downloaded by searching for free panda antivirus in Google. There is no need to buy the paid version as this free version is excellent. This antivirus has all features like schedule scanning, real time detection and works great against infected websites.

Now I will talk about data recovery tools. There are many data recovery tools available on Internet but unfortunately there is nothing easily available that is capable of recovering data in an acceptable way. There are so many sites that sell phone recovery and hard drive recovery programs but most of these programs actually don’t even work or recover data. They usually offer a trail but there are problems with trail versions. They show files after scanning but that is not sufficient because recovering file names does not mean the files will be good and in order to see whether the files are good or not, these files must be opened which can only be done when the program is bought. It is my personal experience that these websites actually lie about their products and a lot of them have copied other fake product and change names but in reality they don’t recover useful data. This is a big problem on the Internet as innocent people don’t know the real story and they end up losing money. So my advice is unless a data recovery tool can actually recover a few files and they are good, they should not be trusted. It’s always better to seek help from a professional data recovery company. Normally the job that these free or trial versions can’t do, can be economically done by data recovery people.

In this article, I tried to discuss about some great free tools and their usage. I also talked about some useless data recovery programs being offered on the World Wide Web.
