Free Programs To Replace Expensive Ones

I am all for big business, but sometimes we don’t have the cash to put out for big software packages. Here are some of the programs I use. They are all freeware, which means you can use them forever for free.

Comodo Virus scan/Firewall:

OpenOffice (Word/Excel/Powerpoint):

Macrium Reflect FREE edition: (hard drive/OS/drive image backup)

Since I am a WebDeveloper (PHP), I have found this NOTEPAD replacement invaluable:


7zip (for Rar/zip/7z files):

Altbinz (for NZB files):


K-Lite Media Player Classic (better/faster than windows media player):

Gimp (for photoshop replacement): (haven’t used this much)


Malwarebytes: (anti-malware)

MagicDisc: (mount ISO files)

Smart Defrag:

ImgBurn: (burn ISO files or folders/files)
