When was the last time that you actually read the EULA before or during the installation of a new program ???
EULAlyzer can make that job a lot easier.

                Windows Uninstaller
                 Uninstall Windows software in one click
(I've installed and used it and can vouch for how well it works.)

5 Free security tools to protect your data   


1. KeePass                     - http://www.pcworld.com/product/946354/keepass-password-safe.html
2. TrueCrypt                  - http://www.pcworld.com/product/946425/truecrypt.html
3. Tor Browser Bundle - http://www.pcworld.com/product/1252475/tor-browser-bundle.html
4. OpenPuff                   - http://www.pcworld.com/product/1252470/openpuff.html
5. Cryptocat                  - http://www.pcworld.com/product/1252468/cryptocat.html


I personally use LastPass to keep my passwords safe and help my "failing" memory
As for the rest of these tools, I leave their use up to those more paranoid than I.  ;D

Having trouble getting into Safe Mode, try this tool:
Tweaking.com – Repair Windows Safe Mode 1.9.7

(Not being able to boot into Safe Mode is often a sign that your computer may have been infected.)
If this is something you suspect, get hep by following the instructions outline at:

He may not give a hoot but, I thought you should know that
DontSleep has just released version 2.99

For me this is a very handy program to make sure my computer doesn't shut off,
go to sleep, hibernate or, start a screensaver or any many other ways
allow my PowerPoint Presentation to be interrupted while I'm in the middle of my
Avast! Security presentation.
