Google Pack is a free bundle of software that contains a free copy of Spyware Doctor. I use the commercial version. There is also a free copy of Norton Security Scan, along with several other useful programs. You can download all or only the ones that you want.
There have been many freeware lists over the years that were posted on the Internet. This is a list of programs that I use myself, that I know work. Having said this, every computer is a little different and it could be that a program that has worked for me for years might clash with another on a different computer. That is a worst case scenario, you could always remove it. I hope that you enjoy the programs as I do. By the way if any of these software programs have gone commercial and are charging money, forgive me this sometimes happens.
