Hotspot Shield

Hotspot Shield protects your entire web surfing session; securing your connection at both your home Internet network & Public Internet networks (both wired and wireless). Hotspot Shield protects your identity by ensuring that all web transactions (shopping, filling out forms, downloads) are secured through HTTPS. Hotspot Shield also makes you private online making your identity invisible to third party websites and ISP’s. Unless you choose to sign into a certain site, you will be anonymous for your entire web session with Hotspot Shield. We love the web because of the freedom that it creates to explore, organize, and communicate. Hotspot Shield enables access to all information online, providing freedom to access all web content freely and securely. Secure your entire web session and ensure your privacy online; your passwords, credit card numbers, and all of your data is secured with Hotspot Shield. Standard antivirus software protects your computer, but not your web activities. I strongly recommend either the free ad-supported version of HotSpot Shield or the ad-free version for everyone who logs onto a public wifi hotspot and does not have a VPN account to protect their personal information from Internet sniffers!

AES Crypt

AES Crypt uses a powerful 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption algorithm. AES Crypt can safely secure your most sensitive files. Once a file is encrypted, you do not have to worry about a person reading your sensitive information, as an encrypted file it's completely useless without the password. It simply cannot be read. When using Windows, the only thing you need to do is right-click on a file, select AES Encrypt or AES Decrypt, enter a password, and AES Crypt will do the rest. WINDOWS PC, MAC OS X, LINUX

CamStudio OpenSource Free Streaming Video Software

CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs). I recommend downloading CamStudio 2.0 and the Lossless Codec 1.4. For easy installation be sure to download the executable (.exe) programs for each file. After trying the beta version, I find version 2.0's interface smoother and gives you better control over where you want to save the file after stopping the capture. After installation, be sure to update the program settings to capture 100% quality and select the CamStudio lossless codec for crisp clear video capturing! For Audio Settings, I like to select to record from Microphone and choose 44.1 kHz, mono, 8-bit for clear audio recording that won't use a lot of space. WINDOWS PC

Windows Installer CleanUp Utility (MSICUU2.exe)

The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility (MSICUU2.exe) was a software utility for the Microsoft Windows operating system designed to solve uninstallation problems of programs that use the Windows Installer technology. It looks up registry references and files related to Windows Installer that were installed by various programs, and forcibly wipes invalid entries out. It works in all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows. The utility was first released by Microsoft in 1999 to help Windows-based computers clean up installed programs that would either refuse or pretend not to remove themselves from the add/remove programs feature in Microsoft Windows. The utility will only change registry values and files associated with the Windows Installer portion on the program. It will not remove many files from the computer and is only to be used as a last ditch attempt when dealing with a buggy program. The utility can only be run by users who are logged in as system administrators. For developers who have problems with the Windows Installer automatically repairing their own installations on developer machines (when the developer has manually updated some of the binaries), this utility is ideal to remove the Windows Installer information whilst leaving the actual installation intact. The utility was retired by Microsoft on June 25, 2010, due to conflicts with Office 2007. WINDOWS PC
