Links you can use

Here are links to some of our favorite FREE software and helpful sites.

There is a wealth of excellent free or donation supported software available for all platforms. Many of these free programs rival their more expensive retail counterparts. When installing freeware or shareware, be sure to uncheck any boxes for additional software, browsers, toolbars, search engines, etc. that you don’t want or need. These are usually checked by default as part of the publisher’s co-op advertising.

Link of the Week

OnyX is an all-in-one maintenance and optimizer utility for OS X. It picks up where Disk Utilities leaves off, with tools to check the S.M.A.R.T. Status of your hard drives, analyze your startup discs, repair permissions, and much, much more. If you only have one maintenance utility on your Mac, this should be it.
