CORRECTION. Many readers responded to the NNT report suggesting ways to save up to 70% on printer ink (one of the most expensive liquids on earth). (If you didn't get that special report, see it online at http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs065/1101458487892/archive/1103583298974.html .)

I failed to mention that there is a 64-bit version available in the discussed software and you'll find a free trial at https://www.plimus.com/jsp/download_trial.jsp?contractId=2853072&referrer=jteems and a special price at https://www.plimus.com/jsp/buynow.jsp?contractId=2853072&referrer=jteems .

01. USB GUARDIAN resides on your USB drive and protects from viruses and worms when files are shared from one computer to another. Download free at http://www.usb-guardian.com/ .

02. QUTTERA relies on a fully heuristic and signature-less detection method to locate potentially malicious code in computer information and media files. Download free at http://quttera.com/free/ .

03. GIMESPACE provides an extended desktop in the horizontal direction. When you move the mouse to the left or right you will see that the desktop has limitless space in those directions. This is an alternative to having multiple monitors next to each other! This program works with Windows XP and higher versions. Download free at http://sites.google.com/site/gimespace/home/gimespace-free-edition .

04. LIVEBINDERS describes itself as "your 3-ring binder for the Web." Collect, organize, and display your resources. Download free at http://livebinders.com/ .

05. MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC HOME CINEMA claims better support for Windows Vista, low resources use, and the ability to play pretty much everything you throw at it. As a free download, it's worth checking out at http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/ .

06. PAINT.NET is an image and photo editor with an impressive lineup of features. It provides support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and more features that compare with Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Photo Editor, and The Gimp. Download free at http://www.getpaint.net/index.html .

07. AUDIO TUNER. I once thought I'd like to play the guitar but could never get the darned thing tuned. Audio Tuner might have been what I needed. Play your instrument into your computer's microphone and Audio Tuner will tell you the frequency being played. Select the note to tune it to and Audio Tuner will tell you if you are too flat or too sharp. It works with just about any musical instrument and is a free download at http://www.supernifty.com.au/wiki/index.php?title=Audio_Tuner . 08. CINTANOTES works without a Web browser and clips text in any application that can copy text to clipboard. It supports fast file search, ease of organization, and is totally self-contained so it can be run directly from a flash drive to store all your notes. Download free at http://cintanotes.com/ .

09. WHSPR! is a free service http://whspr.me/ that comes in handy when you want to post publicly for replies but would rather not divulge your email address. Simply enter your address and Whispr! creates a unique link. Provide that link in your public announcements and you get email while your address remains hidden.
