Software Reviews - Recommended Software
I only review and recommend software that I have personally used and found to be outstanding in its field. All software I recommend has been checked for spyware and viruses and has proven to be reasonably stable on my Microsoft Windows based computers.
However, one person's meat is another's poison. Although I have found a particular program to be excellent, you may find that it does not suit your needs at all.
Moreover, it is impossible to guarantee that any software I recommend will work as well for you as it has for me. There are just too many variables to make such a guarantee viable. Therefore, I cannot take any responsibility for problems that you may encounter due to the use of software that I have reviewed.
Before installing any software from the Internet, you should:
- Make sure that the software is suitable for your computer system
- Make sure that you are downloading a legal copy of the software.
- Read the End User Licence Agreement (EULA) if there is one.
- Check the software for viruses and spyware.

this parent folder that has the same name as the software I'm
Normally I store all the files and folders associated with the
software in this sub-folder. I also create a plain text software
log for each download that records the following information.
To save time, I have a template file set up so I can just fill
in the blanks and save the resulting file to the new program's
I find that it can be really useful to have all the information
and files you need for a program in an easily accessible and
