File Finder is such a simple and easy program to use to track down and locate files and folders on your system. I think this has to be a fantastic selling point, but maybe also its downfall. It instantly took me back to the retro MS-DOS based Windows days, if you look past the Aero themed title bar. I was a little surprised to see a price tag on this software if I’m honest, as I didn’t think anyone would want to purchase File Finder, however I can definitely see the attractive side of this very minimalistic application after trying it out.

It’s always a good idea to consider some kind of protection for your sensitive data, and encryption is a really good way of protecting files and folders containing personal or secret data. This is even more important for users who are connected to the internet or a network, as well as home users who share their computer or laptop with someone. Encrypt My Folder is software that aims to help you do this.

Encrypt My Folder installed with no problems what so ever, however something that instantly sprung out at me was the levels of grammar used through the program.

If you have a lot of data and perform regular backups, or are particularly bad at keeping your system clean, tidy and organized, you may find that your computer starts to get a little clogged up with duplicate files. In my case, this is most obvious within the My Documents folder and My Music folder, where I’ve backed up and restored different versions of documents whilst working on them, or sourced a higher bit rate song to replace a lower quality one.

For some students, understanding statistics is a tough mountain to climb. However, this problem can be easily solved using pictorial representation of numbers and data, popularly known as Graphs. Since Graphs are easier to interpret, these are often used in displaying marketing trends, reports or any other data dealing with numbers. Creating graphs electronically is an easy but time consuming task, if we choose Microsoft Excel to do it. Fortunately, there is an alternative to Excel, when it comes to creating Graphs.

Im always scouting the internet looking for quality applications that’ll help me save time carrying out some of the basic things I do every time I switch on my computer. For example, launch my internet browser, email client, iTunes and so on. SD QuickExec is something that meets those criteria, and is quite a nice application for those Windows users who love making their PC look just that little bit more like a Mac.

The first thing I have to comment on is the installer.

Even though it may not look it, MemZilla is in fact a very simple application, that purely and simply aims to increase your system performance by freeing up more memory that can be used for opening more programs. MemZilla also provides some basic information about your RAM too.

MemZilla has a bit of a busy interface that I feel wasn't too necessary to include. For most users, the only part of MemZilla that would be of any interest is the Free Memory Now button.

Glary Utilities is another one of the thousands of different applications out there that helps you clear out and fine tune your system, for better and improved system speed and performance... and its a decent one too!

Glary Utilities is split up into two main sections, one being the 1-Click Maintenance area and the other being the Modules section. They both serve different purposes. The 1-Click Maintenance (even though it is in fact two!) is a really quick way to scan through your system and get rid of things that do not need to be there.

FixMe is a small program that claims to help you fix common issues with your computer. Whether it actually does this or not, its actually difficult to judge. I downloaded the program with no issues and was pleasantly surprised to find that no installation was required, which is a bonus, as I like to keep my system as clear as I possibly can. Once running the single application file, a blue window appeared.
 
The main FixMe windows consist of in fact very little.

Glug glug is a freeware arcade action game, playable using flash player. Glug glug is actually a fairly unique game, as although it retains many elements from the arcade genre, such as scoring, lives and the way in which level system works. The actual gameplay surrounding all of this is actual completely unique, as in glug glug you must dive to the bottom of the sea, avoid various sea creatures, from sharks to crabs to sting rays, grab a treasure chest, and then reach the surface without being hit again, a fairly new and different idea for a game.

Boa constrictor is a freeware classic arcade game with the general gameplay mechanics taking their routes from the very classic mobile game, snake. The game, however does not attempt to fit into the “snake clone” market, and does actually add a fair amount to snake, in the form of the level structure, changing from a scoring system to a structured level system. In conjunction with this, they also add something unique to each level, in the form of a maze like structure which you must navigate with the snake (a boa constrictor) and collect the food.

Fire stones is a freeware puzzle game in which you must match three of the same coloured block in a row to destroy them, and although this may start to sound like bejeweled, the game actually takes a lot from tetris, as your blocks will fall from the sky, and you must rotate and place them in the correct positions to try and line up three blocks of the same colour in a row, to try and destroy rows of the blocks, with a slightly altered tetris level format, to make a pretty interesting hybrid.

Flower power is a freeware puzzle game which is very similar in gameplay style and nature to the classic arcade game bejeweled, taking all the basic concept, idea and gameplay from bejeweled, and adding its own twist in the form of the art style of the game, and the way. The flowery twist of the game actually does add enough to the game to justify the game, as it is very colourful and interesting, but in terms of actual gameplay innovation there isn't too much, which is something you should bear in mind while reading this review.

Hot lines is a freeware logic based puzzle and strategy game, which is actually entirely its own game, but bares resemblance to logic game such as chess and even games such as advance wars for the portable nintendo systems. In hot lines you must make a path for your balls to get from one side of the board to the other, but to do so you must remove certain blocks, causing a chain reaction of other blocks being removed, so you must be incredibly careful as to which blocks you remove to guarantee all blocks you remove are the correct moves to make.

Brain teaser cubes is a freeware first person action puzzle game, which is fully 3d, and has a fairly unique concept, most comparable to the console game portal, minus the portal elements (leaving just the cube based puzzles). The game is fairly interesting because it approaches the action puzzle genre in a completely different way to most games, by using a first person perspective instead of top down, or the classic third person platformer view, that is used by the majority of freeware games, which right from the start is a very refreshing change.

Astanoid is a freeware arcade game which takes the core gameplay elements and ideas from the classic game breakout (also known as arcanoid) but instead of being a generic clone like every other game which takes the basic game mechanics from breakout, astanoid actually adds its own unique perspective on the genre, by themeing the entire game with alien elements. To give a basic summary, astanoid is breakout but with its own entire theme, gameplay additions and much much more.

Atomic mine sweeper is a freeware mine sweeper clone style game, programmed and playable using flash player. Although the name (and genre) of the game suggests that it is simply a mine sweeper clone, the actual game itself is a very complex variation on mine sweeper, involving atoms (as the name suggests) instead of mines, and using a complex light system (which is incredibly difficult to understand) to give the game its own unique gameplay element and twist, which is definitively a positive start

The gameplay of atomic mine sweeper is a very interesting and difficult to understand concept.

Bubble shooter deluxe (referred to in game as bubble shooter premium edition) is a freeware puzzle game. At first look, bubble shooter deluxe appears to be a clone of many other games similar to it, in which you must fire balls from a stationary point, and make combo's of the same shape to gain score and complete the level, albeit with a little polish, but the game actually proves that it has a lot of unique features as your move into it, first of all and most notably its multiplayer feature, which immediately makes the game more than a solo experience, being a competitive one on one with an AI.

If you’ve used any computer for fairly long time, you might have noticed it gets slower and slower over the time. This process is slow and generally goes unnoticed until your computer gets too sluggish to go unnoticed. This is due to unused registry entries, fragmented disk space, temporary files and unnecessary data in your PC’s Hard Disk. Although Windows has a built-in tool popularly known as Disk Cleanup, more often than not, it fails to deliver desired results.

AM browser is a freeware browser from 2009, which markets itself allowing you to surf the web in a more comfortable, less confusing way. Once you install and open AM browser, the first thing you will notice is how out dated the look of it is. Most browsers, such as google chrome and firefox obviously have frequent updates to maintain a somewhat decent look, whereas AM browser has an incredibly out dated look, even worse than internet explorer, even having icons similar to the ones from the earliest versions of internet explorer.

Win Wap is a freeware smart phone emulator, with the intended purpose of being installed on a desktop, to emulate “smart phone” browsers on a desktop computer, and allow you to see what your website (or indeed, any website or web page) will look like on a mobile browser. The one key down side is that this software is very old, dating to 2005, so Win Wap's definition of smart phone is very different to today’s, however the software does work great for emulating the browsers found on many common phones, which are not considered “smart” by today’s definitions.
