KeePass Password Safe

I highly recommend that you use a password manager to manage and store all of the passwords that you use. Typically, most folks use the same password for many sites and accounts and are careless in maintaining their passwords; often storing them in and around the computer. KeePass will assist you in generating strong passwords and will assist you in securely storing your passwords. Also, check further on their website for ported versions of KeePass to other operating system platforms, such as Android. KeePass is available as a full install or portable app.

KeePass is an open source password manager. Passwords can be stored in highly-encrypted databases, which can be unlocked with one master password or key file.

Highly Recommend MiniTool Portable Partition Magic For Quick Disk And Partition Management

Highly recommend this software (MiniTool Portable Partition Magic); especially, the portable version to manage disks and partitions on your Windows PC. Typically, this type of software is something that most people do not need on a regular basis; thus, the reason I recommend the portable version. Simply download, unzip and run; when you need it.

As an example, I recently used this software to delete a partition and to extend the system partition to capture the space that was being used to store a Windows factory restore on an older HP laptop (that really no longer needed the restore files) that is now running Windows 10. In the end I gained 10GB of space and the computer runs more efficiently.

Backup Your Gmail With MailStore Home

Here is a good Windows software option, called MailStore Home, that you can use to download and backup your Gmail. I can also see using this to archive a Gmail account that is getting full.

 

MailStore Home is a free email archiving and email backup software for personal use.

With MailStore Home you can backup all emails in a central archive, even if they are distributed across different computers, programs or mailboxes. You can do this either on your PC or on a USB drive as a “portable” option.

Destroy Adware (and its’ friends) With AdwCleaner

AdwCleaner is one of those programs that I keep on my computer, that is engineered to target (and remove) adware, spyware, potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), and browser hijackers. If you download this program, you will have to manually run it in order for it to work its’ magic. There is no install involved (simply download and run). I typically download it and run it at least every couple of weeks. I have had great success with this program over the years and highly recommend it to help keep your computer in a healthy state.
