IObit Uninstaller 4 – powerful free uninstaller removes programs and stubborn Windows toolbars at a stroke [Freeware]

It’s a fact of life that after a while every Windows computer on the planet gets filled up with junk programs.

TunnelBear Mobile – excellent free WiFi security tool now available on Android and iPhone [Freeware]

One of the things it’s important to remember is the fact that wireless networking connections (especially public WiFi) are inherently insecure, which means it’s pretty easy for people with a bit of tech skill to tap into your connection and spy on your stuff.
