Free Computer Downloads
FREE helpful software to make your computer
run faster & more efficiently
Here are some free downloads to help you improve your computer speed and clean up your computer. You don’t need to be a computer expert to keep your computer operating efficiently.
And you don’t need to spend a fortune on software programs, either! There are many very good “free” programs out there. All of them have been used by the Hi-Speed-Internet.com staff and are highly recommended.
These resources are all free, simple to download & use, and very helpful!
- Free spyware removal: AdAware
I personally use AdAware to remove unwanted spyware and adware files from my computer. It’s simple, and free, and is recommended by many computer experts.
- Another free spyware removal: SpyBot
I also use Spybot, and while it is similar to AdAware, sometimes it finds unwanted files not identified by AdAware. It’s best to use these programs anywhere from once a week to once a month, depending on your computer usage.
- Computer cleaner: CC Cleaner
CCleaner is a free system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history.
- Download PDF files faster: Free PDF speed-up
If you download PDF files, this program is a must. The newest Acrobat Reader takes a while to open a PDF file, and for most users, the extra functions are not necessary. This will greatly increase the speed at which PDF files open.
- Make PDF files: Free PDF maker
A very easy-to-use program that allows you to make your own PDF documents, with lots of options. You can purchase the software for a small fee to eliminate the ads that appear when using the software – but unless you make a lot of PDF’s, you can probably live with the ads.
- Free “Office” alternative: Free “OpenOffice” Suite
While not quite as detailed as the popular Microsoft Office Suite, this free program offers a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation tool, database…and more, without the high price tag.
