Freeware who those who like free music but hate torrents

For the music lovers who really despise the file-sharing services, and even the idea itself, the Songr might be considered a valid competitive solution. It is a cloud music player that streams and downloads music from multiple web services, including Grooveshark, Prostopleer, MusicSearch, YouTube and many others, aggregating results from 16 mp3 search engines. Mp3 files are downloaded from web servers and are not shared with other people during or after the download.

Main Features:

* Full album search
* Multi-language interface.
* Download HQ/HD YouTube videos and optionally extracts the audio track as mp3
* It grays out low bitrate preview-only and mp3s
* Intelligent sorting: Songr tries to display high quality mp3s on the top of the list
* Double clicking a mp3 file opens it directly in Windows Media Player
* It makes possible to discover the name of a song by typing some words in the Search by lyrics panel and listen to a preview of the song
* Automatic updates check, to get more search engine connectors
* Automatic mode
* Links to buy music from Amazon and Rhapsody
* Spell checker
* Log file
* Freeware, without ads or restrictions
* Portable version is available.

After playing a bit with the default version, I noticed several bugs, making it not very attractive. Switching to the Songr 1 helped to understand the program potential better. Switching between interfaces can be done anytime. Choose File in top menu and select Songr 1 or Songr 2, if and when you decide to come back to the latest GUI.

Browse without annoying toolbars and add-ons

Sometimes, installing new software, we are rushing through the installation process and clicking on all “OK” buttons without reading fine print. And later we note with surprise that our home page has changed, new toolbars installed, and for some reason the speed of the browser loading and general operations substantially declined.

You can definitely go to the Settings page and start recovering from the unwanted changes step by step. But if you do not feel comfortable with such operations, you may get assistance from Auslogics Browser Care freeware.

Auslogics Browser Care lets you sort through all add-ons and toolbars installed in your web browsers, remove unsafe or simply unneeded ones and choose useful items you want to keep.

With Browser Care you can view and manage all your installed browsers in one place. This includes the list of all plugins for each browser along with their status and safety rating, as well as the webpage and search engine that are set as default. If your home page has been hijacked, this tool lets you change it to the page you'd like to start your browsing sessions with. If you've never used the search window in your browser because it is linked to a search engine you don't like, Browser Care lets you set your favorite search engine as default in all your browsers for faster and more convenient searches. Never find the time to clear browser cache? This tool lets you easily sweep out temporary internet files from all your installed browsers.

KCleaner – free alternative junk remover to CCleaner

You are probably familiar with CCleaner (so called Crap Cleaner) – freeware utility, helping you to keep the computer at the best performance ability. The utility is free and quite popular among users. I use it once a while as well and frankly quite satisfied with its performance in general. But lately there came several users reports that the new utility KCleaner, developed by KCSoftwares, works better to remove the unneeded files from your Hard Drive, optimizing and speeding up its performance.

Main features:

* Very efficient junk cleaner (targets various residual, cache, and temp files), picking up significantly more junk than CCleaner.
*Automatic scheduling mode is available.
* Displays how many files are to be cleaned, and how much space will be freed.
* Simple and straightforward interface. For non-expert mode, operation is performed with single click.
*Super-secure deletion process is available, so there will be guaranteed data removal with no chances for forensic recovery.
* Software is fast and easy on resources, with portable option available.
*Free for all purposes.
