I have this theory that sludge builds up inside a computer over time, much like an automobile engine. After a while, it doesn't start right up like when it was new, it stalls unexpectedly, and performance is sluggish on the (information) highway. So is there something like engine cleaner you can pour into your personal computer to restore that "like new" performance? Actually, yes!

Here's my special recipe to clean that icky goo out of your computer's pipes, so Windows will start quicker, run more reliably, and go faster on the info-superhighway.

Free Internet Faxing
Why use an expensive, ornery fax machine when there are so many online alternatives to sending a document? Dump your fax machine, the Internet has made this dinosaur obsolete. Think of the savings on toner, paper, and time when all you really need is a computer with an internet connection. Start sending faxes for free -- no fax machine required!

Here's my list of sites that offer free Internet faxing services. Some of them are completely free, while others offer free or limited trials...

Free Credit Reports Online
Did you know... every U.S. consumer has the right to receive a copy of their credit report, free of charge once a year? Actually, it's even better than that. You can get a free annual copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit reporting companies. So if you play it right, you can monitor your credit file every four months without ever paying for a report.

But watch out for the scammers who want to charge you a fee. Here's the scoop on free annual credit reports...

Free Registry Cleaners
The Windows Registry is a database that enables the operating system to track the relationships between hardware and software. Unfortunately, problems with the registry can make Windows run slower. Sometimes an "orphaned" registry entry can confuse Windows during startup and cause a delay. In general, slimming down your registry will make Windows run faster. There are several utility programs that will clean your system registry of unnecessary and erroneous entries.

Free Tools To Recover Deleted Files
Finger fumble, brain freeze, virus attack, or computer crash -- they can all be the cause of lost or accidentally deleted files. But never fear, there are tools that can help you recover those lost files, and some of the best ones are free. Read on and you'll find a crop of Windows-based tools to recover deleted files...

Free Online Storage
If you're running out of storage space on your hard drive, and on a tight budget, try a free online storage tool to offload some files. Documents, spreadsheets, images, music and movies can take up a big chunk of your available hard drive space. Fortunately, there are numerous free online storage options that you can take advantage of.

If you're looking for a way to free up space on your hard drive while still being able to access your files on demand, then consider signing up for a free online storage account. Here are a bunch of the best...

Free Satellite TV?
Have you seen those ads promoting software that's supposed to give you free satelite TV on your PC? The program costs $40, and they claim it lets you watch hundreds of live worldwide channels free of charge. Read my expose of this scamware product, and see what the scammers are saying about me!

Oh, and I'll also give you a dozen links to really, truly free TV on the web...
