Find the best free software – from free antivirus software to free word processors.
Our top picks of the best free software:
1. Free anti-virus software
AVG anti-virus software is not only completely free – it’s been rated by some computer magazines as being better than many paid-for anti-virus packages, which usually cost upwards of £20. (For Windows PCs only).
2. Free word processors and office software
Don’t want to shell out for the latest version of Microsoft Office? IBM offers its award-winning Lotus Symphony software for free. It’s powerful but easy to use, and does pretty much everything Microsoft Office does. If you need an excellent free word processor (or presentation or spreadsheet software) look no further. Works with Windows, Macs and Linux.
3. Free software backup
Keep all your documents, photos, videos and data safe by backing them up online with Dropbox. It’s really simple to use – and free. (Works with Windows, Macs and Linux).
4. Free calls with Skype
If you and a friend both sign up to Skype (the basic version is free) you get free Skype-to-Skype user calls, instant messaging and video calling (if you both have webcams). It even has full integration with Facebook.
5. Free blogging software
6. Free software to save you money on printing
iPrint is a great piece of software that saves you as much as 60% in printing costs. It saves both money and trees by letting you put multiple pages on a single sheet of paper and not printing blank pages. It will even track how much money you’ve saved using it. (For Windows PCs only).
