AdAware FREE Download
Did you know some cookies place spy ware on your computer? Spy ware records your every move on the net: the sites you visit, what you click on, what you up-load/down-load, the banner ads you click, even what's on your hard drive, and the information collected about YOU is sold to internet marketers. These parasites customize those annoying pop-ups and banner ads based on YOUR unique internet surfing. AdAware scans your system for this spyware and safely removes it.
Award winning site for lots and lots of free downloads. You'll be suprised what AnalogX has to offer. Highly recommended by Joe!
WinAmp - - New Version Available and it's still free
The BEST MP3 player on the Net. What is MP3? Basically, it's a music format that can be transferred over the Net. MP3's are free from Napster. WinAmp
(Real Player's cookies put spy ware on your 'puter) plays the MP3 files you download from Napster.
You can even burn MP3's onto CD-R and CD-RW compact discs. Amazon.com has the best price (plus free shipping) for an MP3 player
that also plays standard music CDs. The player comes with a car kit allowing you to play the music thru your vehicle's cassette deck.
