Free Tools

A  wide range of “Free for personal use” and “Open Source” products now exist to cover just about any PC requirement. They are particularly good in the area of PC and network security. More recently it has become possible to get products for office applications, internet browsing, graphics editing and much more that provide all the functionality of the paid for product. The main area of short coming tends to be support. These products will often not have any telephone support. They do however mostly have a very active forum where users get together online to help each other.

This list features products that we have used and are happy to see our customers using them.

Some of these files are quite large and will take some time to download. If you are on dial-up internet access we are able to offer a service to download and burn a CD of these products for you. Please enquire for more details.
