Essential free software downloads

Here are some of the most popular free software downloads on the web that will help protect your computer and to stay you connected with your buddies. I called them "popular" because of their reliability and ability to do what they are suppose to do and of course they are free.

Google Toolbar

This latest version of the Google Toolbar offers easy searching, blocks pop-ups and makes it easy to fill in online forms. The biggest drawback with the Google Toolbar is that it only searches Google. However, its extra functions have taken it beyond the scope of a regular search engine toolbar and lifted into the realms of the genuinely useful.
