do you not know about download.com , not only do they list freeware shareware trials, but they also give reviews and check for things like spyware / adaware

Filezilla, possibly, I don't remember what program I once used to change data on websites many moons ago now
Probably smartFTP

I don't have a website these days

....does anyone know how to set up and maintain a simple website that is better than a rather basic free 'blog' but doesn't cost an arm and a leg ?

"copernic desktop search"

....this is very useful in locating a file instantly compared to the slug-a-bed 'search' facility in microsoft windows

...not just a  file, any unique word inside a file can be searched and used to find the relevant file as soon as the 'search' button is pressed

Microsoft search facility takes ages and still fails 9 times out of ten

Nice light weight alternative to Copernic is Search Everthing The small installation file and minimal resource usage makes this one of the best search tool around.

Downloading CCEnancer will add further support for cleaning 450 more applications not currently available in CCleaner.
