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. The golden rule is never do anything on public WiFi that’s super sensitive (like banking etc), just in case. But there are ways to reduced the risks.
