11. Revo Uninstaller Free


The 11th application that I would like to introduce to you in this article is Revo Uninstaller Free.

Revo Uninstaller Free is not the fastest app removal method, but it works very well. It creates a restore point, performs in-depth scanning and removes all traces of the program.

The Uninstaller tab includes a list of installed applications, their details (size, version, installation date and even the download site), and an option to uninstall or refresh the application. When you uninstall, first, Revo runs “parse” first, and creates a restore point for the system. Then, it opens the application’s default uninstaller and then runs the program that detects the files that have not been deleted, and then traces the entries in the Registry.

On the Tools tab, Autorun Manager stops the application from automatically launching, Junk Files Cleaner removes all unneeded files, and Browsers Cleaner cleans up temporary internet files and browser history.

Another interesting feature is the Hunter mode, which creates a fly-top icon on the desktop. You drag it through some software to remove the application, open its directory or stop it running automatically.

12. Sumatra PDF


The 12th application that I would like to introduce to you is Sumatra PDF. Maybe Sumatra PDF just a little more beauty on the interface, this is really a great tool for users often work with PDF format. XPS, DjVu, CHM and comics support, Sumatra PDF file opening with a simple toolbar, including a set of common tools such as zoom, printing, cross the page and search. However, the power of this utility is located in the extensive shortcut key, help you view PDF files very easily.

Sumatra PDF can automatically attach files to email and be able to recognize the letter OCR. You can also highlight and copy text and paste them into other applications very easily.In the past, Sumatra PDF has been known to “specialize” PDF formats with many charts, images or comics. If you’re bored with Adobe Reader, you can try this tool.

13. TeamViewer


The 13th application that I would like to introduce to you in this article is TeamViewer. This is a remote access tool, which is free for non-commercial purposes, so it’s great for anyone who wants to switch between computers. Once you spend about two minutes signing up for a computer, you can connect to it from anywhere in the world, and use it remotely as if it was right in front of you. Because this is a remote hosted service, you do not even need to configure the firewall.

This utility also has many tools to make your work more smoothly. You can enlarge the desktop of the remote access machine to fit the current device screen, or change the resolution of the host to match the resolution of the machine you are using. If the connection is slow, you can reduce image quality to increase responsiveness. The sound of the remote system is also transmitted to your speakers, and you can even print the remote document directly to your printer. The utility also has a file transfer tool for you to transfer files directly between two computers. And if you’re concerned about others viewing your computer, you can turn off the computer screen remotely and disable the mouse and keyboard remotely.

Some of TeamViewer’s features are only available in Enterprise Edition and do not relate to features for individual users. However, it is more than enough for a great free tool, which gives you access to every computer.

The most outstanding feature of PC Decrapifier is simplicity. With only 2MB, it quickly scans your PC and divides the applications into three categories: Recommended, Questionable, and Everything Else.And this is also the 14th application that I would like to introduce to you in this article.

When it does not have enough information to determine if it is bloatware (software pre-installed by the manufacturer when you buy it), it will transfer the application to Everything Else. Surprisingly, this tool lists the applications that you forget on your computer.

After checking which applications you want to uninstall, click the Remove Selected button and it will create a system restore point, and then remove the software. It’s done!

TestDisk is an open source application, developed by CG Security, designed specifically to recover deleted partitions and / or non-bootable disks.

16. Wireshark


The 16th application that I would like to introduce to you in this article is Wireshark. Wireshark is very good, as it is perfectly programmed, telling you exactly what’s going on on the network. Even so, Wireshark appears very much in network training programs because it is full of features related to network and network hardware. Many people wonder why a switch tells you to copy network packets from one port to another: that is, thanks to Wireshark, you can capture network data without any special other tools.

But Wireshark is actually a double – edged sword, as it is a free tool and a powerful tool for anyone curious about what to do on the internet. Hackers also use Wireshark to sneak a user’s packets.

17. WinDirStat


The final application I would like to introduce to you in this article is WinDirStat.

If you wonder why your hard drive is running out of space so fast? You will need WinDirStat. This tool will review the entire drive, listing the size of each file and folder occupied by the hard drive. Take a few minutes to review, then this utility will show two sections. The upper part of the window is a regular directory tree, but adds a percent symbol, indicating exactly how each directory occupies the hard drive. Thanks to that information, you can easily look at folders that are too large to handle them.

In the window below, more intuitive, the tool displays a graph of the disk. Each file is represented by a square, colored code and can be zoomed to reflect the type and size of the associated file. If there is a file that is too large to be in a forgotten folder then you can see the file itself. Click to confirm the identity of the file and if not, click Delete to delete the file, clean up the hard drive space.
