Than, a great amount of the competitors rushed to catch up. And… they succeeded. When I tried using Adobe Acrobat Reader on one of the customers’ computers yesterday, I realized how far they are behind.

  • Opening, reading, and displaying any PDF files.
  • Printing PDF documents.
  • Exporting PDF as a plain text.
  • Exporting PDF by the page as images.

Freeware professional consultant for your PC - BelArc Advisor

Belarc Advisor can be considered as a free for personal use professional computer-security consultant for your PC.

The application performs a detailed investigation of the computer hardware and software and analyzes a machine’s weak points, looking at elements such as whether antivirus software is up to date, or whether all the security flaws in Windows have been patched. It uses the Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmark test to give the computer a score showing its overall security level, and produces a report that can be viewed in a Web browser.

Not only does it analyze software and operating system components and tell you where problems are, but in its comprehensive report software tells you what your computer’s physical components are: not just how much RAM you have, for example, but what kind of RAM and which slots are occupied.

This program does not fix the problems itself, but gives clear advice on how to address each issue. The software is recommended for all home PC users as a first step in securing their computers, or for those considering a hardware upgrade, and need a detailed overview of the current system configuration. All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any Web server.
