This is some of the stuff that helps me get through the negligence of knowing nothing about computers. These things are off have reviews along with he downloads, so check them out if it seems worth it to you.
Pop-up Stopper (free license)
Just make sure to turn it off when you need pop-up windows (so many people don't get this)...but anyway, it works well for me...(especially when using angelfire.com and espn.com).
Audacity (free license)
This program works well for creating stereo master .wav recordings to burn onto CD's to make demos. It's especially useful for those muscians who still use analog tape multi-tracking.
MORE TO COME LATER...
