The Daily Walk with Miracles — Free Useful Software for Our Visitors:
The Daily Walk with Miracles, September 10, 2010 and ongoing, by Paul Evans, updated regularly:
Introduction by The Daily Walk with Miracles owner Paul Evans: I have a few friends in the IT industry. A few design websites, as I do. One works in networking with a major corporation. One friend owns a computer repair shop here in Wooster, Ohio. To give you an idea of how good this guy is, his shop is the place where Best Buy sends the computers they either can’t or don’t have time or capacity to fix. He’s good, and he has been my friend for six years. It’s fun to hang out at his repair shop, and he has taught me a lot. So, in keeping with The Daily Walk with Miracles’ emphasis on caring and sharing, I decided to offer some of the best free programs that this guy has recommended over the years. I myself took my first computer programming course in 1978 and I know what I am talking about when I make these recommendations — here are the programs for you, completely free of charge, that I use myself. Why pay for great software??? These downloads are free for everyone, no registration, no gimmicks.
Just click the Download icon in the programs’ description to download the .exe file. Save the file to your desktop, and then double click the .exe file to install your free program. These are some of the very best free programs on the market. Moreover, the programs are the ones I myself use all the time. Why pay good money for security programs, for example, when you can get by just fine with really good free antivirus and antimalware/antispyware programs. I know for a fact that the programs I offer here are the ones my geek friends use themselves. We just wanted to offer our visitors the very best in free programs, plus some free games just for fun. Because at The Daily Walk with Miracles, we care!
I do my best to keep these files updated; for example, Internet Explorer 9 has been updated from the Beta to the Release Candidate. However I am only one man, and running this site keeps me pretty busy (and I do have a life, besides this). So if you don’t get the very latest version, please know that the program in question will offer a free update to the latest version upon installation. But instead of hosting the programs here, I now point you at the best known download location for each program.
Enjoy your free software, courtesy of The Daily Walk with Miracles!
Free Security Software
NE Ohio Computer Repair
We’ll Fix or Optimize It For Less!
These are the security programs the professional geeks use themselves to keep their computers safe and free from viruses, adware, dialers, and spyware in general, collectively known as malware. No one should operate a computer without having good antivirus AND antispyware software, and there are a few really good free programs out there. We are offering the best of the best free antivirus programs, Avira, Avast and AVG Free.
Plus, The Daily Walk with Miracles is also offering you three antimalware (general antispyware and adware) programs which have no "shield" – and thus won’t slow your computer down — plus one decent free anti-spyware program that has a shield. These are the choice of professional IT people to scan your computer and remove the bad stuff. We are offering, completely free of charge, Malwarebytes and Spybot, plus the lesser-known Spyware Terminator. Personally I use Malwarebytes and Spyware Terminator and keep the other two also installed in case there is some virus or spyware that I might need one of the other two security programs for. (The web is just not a very safe place, is it?…. and I go all over the web getting the news for you each day.) Use at least one of these free programs every second or third day in a "Quick Scan" and your computer will be completely free of malware. You should install ONE antivirus program, plus as many of the free antimalware/antispyware programs as you feel comfortable with. Because three of ours here have no shields, there is no conflict with your antivirus program, and these antimalware programs therefore will NOT slow your computer down.
Why worry about Trojans, other viruses, adware, dialers, rootkits and other spyware, when easy solutions are available free of charge. And we offer the free programs the professionals use, just because we care about people. The file sizes range from 42 MB to 89 MB for the free antivirus programs, but all of these programs are reliable, recommended by professional IT people, and completely free. Personally I use Avast, but that’s just a personal choice. Any of these three anti-virus programs and free, scan-only antimalware programs (each) will keep your system free of viruses and protect your PC. You really need to have one of each, trust me, you really do. I really just wanted to help out and so I put out this page of freeware for you to download. I know from personal experience that these are good programs, too.
For years I hosted these programs directly on The Daily Walk with Miracles, but they update to newer versions so often that I needed to just point you to the appropriate download page, where there is no spyware, malware or other problems with the download. Often, the free version is offered next to a “Pro” or paid version.
Just pick your personal preferences, click the Download button, save the .exe installation file to your desktop, install and enjoy!
Download Avast! Free Antivirus, newest version, about 50 or more MB (Freeware) — my own and the current most popular choice for free antivirus protection, recommended by professional IT computer geeks.
Download Zone Alarm free firewall, which is much better than Windows firewall and is the most downloaded firewall, receiving a rating of 5 out of 5 starts at CNET download.com, newest version, about 44.7 MB (Freeware).
Free Antimalware Programs:
Malwarebytes, Spybot & Spyware Terminator:
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free, newest verssion, about 7.4 MB. (Freeware) — Malwarebytes, like all the antimalware programs (but not the antivirus programs) here excerpt Spyware Terminator, has no shield, there is no conflict with your antivirus program, and the programs will not slow your computer down. Once installed, be sure to click the THIRD tab and update the program. Then click the FIRST tab and do a “quick scan,” which takes about 5 to 6 minutes on most computers and should remove most of the bad stuff from your PC. Run a quick scan every other day, and run a full scan of your computer once a week. Malwarebytes is my own personal choice for protection from Trojans and other viruses, adware, dialers, rootkits, and other spyware. My friend who repairs computers professionally puts this program on all the computers he repairs.
Download Spybot – Search & Destroy, antimalware, newest version, about 15 MB. (Freeware) — A Great backup to Malwarebytes. If it’s bad, and it’s on your system, Spybot Search and Destroy will get rid of it. It is very “zealous” and there is a small danger it might pick up on something good you would have wanted to keep. Keep this one for the bad infections — just keep the .exe file in your downloads to install if needed. Just click the download button for free antimalware/antispyware protection, recommended by professional IT computer geeks.
Spyware Terminator: It is unusual to find a decent antimalware – antispyware program which actually has a shield, but this one is good enough so that I have used in in my own computers which have plenty of RAM (memory). If you only have 512 MB of memory, I would not recommend this, however.
Download Spyware Terminator. This is a good and decent anti-malware, antispyware program which actually has a shield to protect your computer and will work in conjunction with your existing antivirus program, without a conflict. The .exe program will download additional components during installation. I would NOT recommend installing the web browser security part of this… when I did so, it badly slowed down my internet browsing experience. Also, having a shield, this program will somewhat slow down your computer, and I would not really recommend it unless you have at least 1 gigabyte of RAM (memory). Be careful not to install the toolbar. But if you DO have adequate memory, I would heartily recommend this as it is a great program. Newest version, about 0.8 MB (Freeware). Recommended but not for beginners.

Other Free Security Tools
Download Microsoft Sysinternals’ Rootkit Revealer to keep your computer free of troublesome rootkits. Rootkit Revealer Version 1.71, 231 kilobytes, (Freeware) — recommended by Microsoft Sysinternals, do not use on Windows 8.
Download Cool Web Search Shredder, Newest version (Freeware) — Does your browser redirect to sites you didn’t want to go to, or shut down mysteriously? Does your home page keep changing to something you don’t want? Chances are you have one of a number of malicious programs or browser add ons collectively known as Cool Web Search, and this little program will take care of the problem completely!
Download CCleaner, version 2.35.1223, 3.27 MB (Freeware) — the world famous system cleaner from Pyriform. Keep your system clean and running smooth. Get rid of useless junk files and those bad cookies that slow your system down and sometimes make internet browsing impossible, as well as your temporary files and temp. internet files. I run CCleaner free every single day to keep my system clean and running smooth.
Download ATF Cleaner, newest version available, about 49.5 kilobytes (Freeware) — This is another great cleaner, especially useful for computers running Windows XP and older operating systems. I have heard it said that some people have had problems when they use ATF Cleaner on Windows 7 computers, so be cautious. While I have used ATF Cleaner on Windows 7 computers with no problems, I now use CCleaner exclusively to keep my Windows 8 system clean and running smooth, but if you are running Windows XP (or older systems), ATF Cleaner is great! You probably shouldn’t run it on Windows 7 or 8. There is no install, the program sits as a .exe file on your desktop for repeated use.

Free Utility Programs for your PC:
Download Advanced System Care Free, latest version (Freeware) — Do you have errors on your Windows Computer? Would you like to have a free program that will take off most spyware, clean junk files and fix the most common Windows registry and system errors? Personally I use Advanced System Care Pro, which I consider a much better program, but if you DO have serious errors on your computer and need some help, and don’t have a lot of cash, you can’t do better than Advanced System Care Free. I know. I’ve tried them all. If you have $19.95 to spend, get Advanced System Care Pro here.
For registry editors and system optimizers, many people prefer Registry Mechanic, although it will cost you $29.95.
Download WinAmp, my own personal choice for media players. Version 5.63 or newest, 10.7 MB (Freeware) — This plays almost all audio and video files, including Real format .flv video files. This is the free version, which is full featured but has slow CD ripping and burning. For the very best media player money can buy, get Winamp Pro for $19.95. Hey, I’m cheap, I use the free version. There are thousands of free plugins, skins, visualizations and more for either Free or Pro Winamp media players. Be careful what you subscribe to during installation. These days that’s true of installing any program, sadly.
Download utorrent, 373 kilobytes, (Freeware) — for the latest and best free bittorrent client. For torrent searches I recommend using IsoHunt, Kick Ass Torrents, The Pirate Bay and BTJunkie. DISCLAIMER: It is entirely possible using free torrent software and websites to download almost unlimited music and movies. Please do not violate copyright in your download choices. The sites I have mentioned DO sometimes try to install spyware. Visit at your own risk. Torrent downloads are usually safe for music and sometimes safe for movies, far less safe if you are looking for pirated software, which usually have some kind of virus or malware in them. It is also ILLEGAL to download copyrighted material for free. The Daily Walk with Miracles is in no way responsible for your use of bittorent clients or torrent downloads, NOR are we in any way responsible if you get a virus or other malware downloading torrent downloads. Use completely at your own risk. By downloading utorrent, you assume all risk for using the bittorent client and The Daily Walk with Miracles is in NO way responsible for any consequences of your use of this software. Music and movies are nonetheless at this time usually considered a "safe" download.
newest version, (Freeware) — Photo editing fully comparable to Photoshop but completely free. The interface is complicated and takes a while to learn, but why pay Adobe hundreds of dollars when this program does the same thing and is completely free.
Download VideoCacheView, 138 kilobytes, (Freeware), a very useful program which views in your browser or copies to your PC any URL’s video which is in your browser cache, with many options. Not for Windows 8.
