Recommended Windows Programs



  • Intrusion detection and startup management: Winpatrol allows you to manage startup programs including scheduled tasks.
  • Antivirus: Nod32 - I recommend the simple antivirus, not the complete Internet Security.
  • Free 2nd opinion malware scanner: Malwarebytes
  • Software Update management: Ninite Updater. My article about Ninite Updater. 
  • Password Management: Either Keepass (this is what I use) or Lastpass. My articles on KeePass.


  • Defragmenter: Piriform Defraggler. Remember, for spinning drives only, not for SSD.
  • Full blown temp file removal for big jobs! Open source Bleachbit portable. I see no reason for the install version. Get the portable.
