Security suites are a big deal. There are so many avenues of attack and you may one day find your computer buckling under the weight of malware and viruses. In the latter half of last year, I actually reviewed Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware Pro as part of MakeUseOf’s Rewards Program. But here’s our offer this week: we’re giving away 25 copies of Ad-Aware Pro 10.5 worth a total of $900 for FREE!
The latest version of Lavasoft Ad-Aware, Ad-Aware Pro 10.5, has been a popular part of our Rewards program all through last year, and was also featured in several giveaways in which you had a chance to win a free copy of the security suite. Didn’t get lucky last time? We’re now offering you another chance to get a 1-year license for Ad-Aware Pro for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. All in all, we’re giving away 10 copies of Ad-Aware Pro worth $360 for FREE!
USB drives are so pervasive in today’s world of technology, but when they first debuted, they revolutionized data exchange. The first USB flash drives had an 8MB capacity, which isn’t much by today’s standards, but a far cry better than the alternatives – the 1.44MB floppy or the CD that required permanent burning. Nowadays we have USB drives that are larger than traditional hard drives.
It’s a fuzzy feeling when you unbox that brand new desktop or laptop and consider how fast and responsive of an experience you’re about to be in for. When you purchase a new computer, treat it like a new car. Take care of it and give it no more or less than what it needs. Is there really a need for you to download six different media players? None of that! If you consider buying a new PC, or you’ve just purchased one, go down this list and let me make your job easier on you.
