Anti Malware

(Free versions available)

  • Super Anti-Spyware

    • They finally fixed Spybot so it now works on Windows 10
    • However, if you put the free version with out the antivirus of Spybot on Windows 10, Windows 10 turns off it's Antivirus and you end up with no antivirus. The only solution I found was to uninstall Spybot or buy the Spybot Antivirus.

  • Program to hide individual Microsoft Updates for Windows 10
    • Windows 10 does not allow you to pick and choose which updates to use.  This program gives you the ability to hide or unhide updates individually.  Windows 10 will not install hidden updates. (The page says temporarily but it is only temporary if you choose to unhide them.)

  • NK2Edit
    • Every time that you type an email address or name in the message window of MS-Outlook, it automatically offer you a list of users and email address that you can choose. This feature is known as 'Auto Complete' and Outlook automatically build this emails list according to user activity and save it into a file with .NK2 extension.  In some circumstances, you may need to repair or modify the values appeared in the AutoComplete list, or you may want to remove unwanted email addresses and/or to add new email addresses. MS-Outlook doesn't provide any ability to edit this AutoComplete list, so this is where NK2Edit software can help you.
