    Thank you, I hadn't seen the FIND function:)

    Yes, they generally say that this or that has been improved. As I said, I wasn't finding fault just commenting on how many updates there are. I expect it with programs such as malwarebytes because there are always new threats and profiles need to be updated accordingly, but this is a different...

    I didn't mean it as a criticism, more an observation. Other than AV, most software doesn't have so many updates (in my experience). Incidentally I am making changes to my system all the time and do try many different programs, it is one of the reasons why I find CCleaner so useful.

    Fix for USB memory stick

    Thanks very much, I really hadn't considered that they may have been crap in the first place, and you may well be right! I bought them new online 4 years ago in the UK, I was coming to live in Turkey and wasn't sure what I would be able to get here. I have only used each of them a couple of...

    how to search email by contacts in windows live mail

    I'm referring to WLM, I used the forums thing as an example of how it works in other applications. For archives I have a storage folder for every year which contains whatever I want to keep that doesn't warrant a folder of its own. Yes I could I guess sort it alphabetically but I wasn't really...

    Best Free Anitivirus

    MSE is unobtrusive and I haven't experienced conflicts as I have with other free AV's.

    Revo Uninstaller

    I highly recommend this software, and have been using it for a long time. It does usually find a lot of stuff that the basic uninstaller leaves behind. However, I've never really worked out what the Hunter Mode is really for!

    I use this on a very regular basis on a number of pc's and am very pleased with it. However, I don't understand why there are so many updates to it, especially as I rarely notice any difference afterwards.

    I like this product because it is really easy and performs all the basic functions that I need. It is also lightweight compared to some of the paid alternatives.

    I've tried Picasa but didn't particularly want all my photos stored again. I prefer to use Photoscape which is also free and works with my photos in their original location.

    I've found this very good for editing my xml feeds. There are other free editors but for me this is the easiest to use.

    Microsoft Security Essentials

    I currently use MSE but have tried many free and paid AV's previously. As has been said, none of them can catch everything so for me the important thing is to have have something else as well. I use malwarebytes and superantispyware and scan all my pc's on a regular basis.
