Top 10 Spyware Blockers
A good spyware blocker program protects you from online marketers who want to know where you go online; identity thieves who want to steal your usernames, passwords, and sensitive personal information; and hackers who want to seize control of your computer.

Here's my list of the top ten spyware tools...

Inexpensive Website Design
You want to design your own website, but you're on a shoestring budget and you're not a programmer. Not a problem. There are many low-cost and even totally free website design options that can have you up and running in no time. Some tools even make it a point and click affair.

But there are differences between the various inexpensive and free website design options that you should know about...

Free Video Conferencing
Free video conferencing services are popular among families, friends, and business partners. A free video conferencing service lets multiple parties exchange text chat messages, speak to one another, and exchange live video streams via the Internet.

Let's take a look at what's available to you in free videoconferencing tools...

Geekly Update
Here are the latest editions of the Geekly Update, presented in small bytes. Get the full scoop on gadgets & hardware, online happenings, computer security, social networking, web tech and search engines -- with occasional dashes of irony and humor.

The Geekly Update is guaranteed to make you the envy of the Alpha Geek in your office. Read on...

Is Your Password Good Enough?
If you follow any security advice at all, it should be this: use strong passwords, keep them secret, and don't use the same password everywhere. Of course, if you follow that advice you'll need password management software to help you keep track of your passwords.

File Search Tools
Finding a particular file among the thousands on your hard drive can be a perplexing problem. Organizing files in folders and naming files according to some "easily remembered" scheme can take you only so far. If all you can remember is that a file contained a certain word or phrase, then these crude organizational tools won't help you find it.

Check out these handy file search tools...
