We talked about other software that provides detailed information about your system; a free online spreadsheet service that rivals Microsoft Excel; another allows you to protect your images with a visible watermark; one program analyzes your computer for important driver information; a program password-protects any executable file from prying eyes; another lets you play chess online; still another provides a full-featured painting program; and, you can instruct Microsoft Word to do your own bidding in your own words. The issue offers at least a half-dozen other useful programs, all free along with our usual features to keep your computer purring smoothly. Our guest columnist tells what should be important to you when making that next computer purchasing decision.
