UPDATING PROGRAMS AND KEEPING THEM UP-TO-DATE


From the aspect of computer safety, it is very essential to keep all the installed programs up-to-date. It reduces significantly the risk that the program(s) would be vulnerable. Vulnerabilities add the risk of the computer getting infected.


We recommend for updating programs and keeping them up-to-date with the SUMo program.


The SUMo program inspects the situation of almost all installed programs and recommends updating installed out-of-date programs.


You can download the SUMo program at the following web page SUMo.

If you are interested in the SUMo Pro version, we can arrange a discount for you. Simply send us an email to the Contact mailto address at the bottom of this web page telling us you are interested in the Professional version of SUMo.



COMPUTER TIME CORRECTION PROGRAM


The built-in computer clock does not necessarily always keep up with the present and currant time. However, it is easy to keep the computer time accurate and up-to-date by using a small install utility and Windows service made for it. According to our personal experience, the best computer clock synchronization utility and Windows Service is NTP.


In the install program GUI you can choose the time server(s) that will be used for synchronization. You can later update the time server(s) in the ntp.conf file, which is located in the NTP program's ETC folder. You can do the update using Notepad or Notepad++ programs.

You can download NTP install program at the following web page NTP Download.



DISK PARTITION MANAGEMENT


We recommend the MiniTool Partition Wizard 12 program for Disk Partition Management. The program is free for personal and academic use and it has an English GUI. The program operates fast, it is easy to use and it supports also RAID disks the size of which is more than 2 TB. It is versatile with a strait forward GUI for all basic disk partition management.


You can download the program at the following web page MiniTool Partition Wizard.



REPLACEMENT FOR WINDOWS EXPLORER

We recommend as a replacement or as an addition to Windows explorer the free xplorer2 Lite program. In the program GUI you might like to choose in the View menu "Tile horizontally" and "Quick viewer". The program is much more versatile than Windows explorer, and it is free for personal and academic use.

You can download the program at the following web page xplorer2 Lite.



LOCATOR PROGRAM FOR FILES AND FOLDERS

FileLocator Lite is awesome, fast and versatile free program for finding files and folders. The program is free both in personal and commercial use. You have to register the company version (for free), and you will get a register number for it.

You can download the program at the following web page FileLocator Lite.


FILE AND FOLDER SYNCHRONIZATION

We recommend for synchronizing files and folders the free multi-language GUI program FreeFileSync. The program is handy and fast in making backups for files.

You can download the program via the following web page FreeFileSync.


NOTEPAD REPLACEMENT

We recommend as an alternative and extension to Notepad the Notepad++ program. This source code editor program is free and it has a multi-language GUI. I use Notepad++ personally for, for instance, web page editing and finishing, in addition to localizing a certain multi-language program.

You can download the program via the following web page Notepad++.




BUILDING WEB PAGES



We recommend the free BlueGriffon program with multi-language GUI for building web pages. The program works in WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) principle and can be downloaded at BlueGriffon. A more versatile inexpensive paid for version exists additionally.




UPLOADING WEB PAGES TO THE INTERNET

We recommend the free addon FireFTP that can be added to the also free Waterfox or free Pale Moon browsers. The advantage with the Waterfox browser and FireFTP addon is the multi language GUIs.

(The program code used in the Pale Moon browser is significantly older than that used in Waterfox browser, which speaks for choosing the combination Waterfox/FireFTP.)

You can download the addon for Waterfox and Pale Moon browsers at the following web page FireFTP.

The current and also for browser safety quite current program code speaks for the choice of the Waterfox browser.




REMOTE CONTROL PROGRAM


We recommend the free TeamViewer program for remote control. TeamViewer has a multi-language GUI and is free in personal use.

You can download the program at the following web page TeamViewer.


MUSIC PAYER AND ORGANIZER


In our opinion the best music player and music organizer is the MusicBee program which is developed actively.


You can download MusicBee at the following web page MusicBee.



DISK IMAGING BACKUP PROGRAMS

Last but not least we recommend for free backup program for home users AOMEI Backupper Standard FREE. We lack experience of using the program ourselves, but rely on several reviews by others to recommend it as a freeware choice. You can download the program at the following web page AOMEI Backupper Standard FREE.


We have several years experience using on several workstations the Acronis True Image 2020 and its predecessors paid for program. We can without hesitation recommend this awesome paid for program as our number one recommendation. The program has saved our day more than once. You can download this program, with in our opinion the best performance/price ratio in its kind, at web page Acronis True Image 2020 Standard
