Save $29: Partition Assistant Professional Edition 4 Day License Giveaway

Windows Partition Manager: Partition Assistant Pro Edition

There are a number of sound reasons to partition today’s large Hard Drives. The best reason I can think of (from a personal perspective), is simply this – data organization.

Additional good reasons to partition could include, keeping your valuable data separate from the operating system so that if you are faced with an OS reinstall following an infection, you can do so without losing irreplaceable data. As well, a multiple boot configuration (resident on one of my machines), which allow users to have more than one operating systems on a computer, requires multiple partitions.

While we’re talking about an OS reinstall following a malware infection, let me just remind you that partitioning is NOT a substitute for backing up your important data. Hard Drives can, and do, fail – a good backup strategy is an absolute must.

Software developer Aomei Technology, recently invited me to be part of their four day giveaway (January 25 to 29, 2011), for a free licensed version of their premier partition manager – Partition Assistant Professional Edition.

Partition Assistant Professional Edition, with its simple user interface allows you to easily create, delete, format, move, resize partitions, and much more. The “much more” characterization (see fast facts), takes this application out of the range of typical free partition management applications.

Publisher’s description:

This professional edition is an advanced partition manager software to assist you to optimize your disk performance; most widely used by personal users which allows you to be an partition solution expert with professional unique technology.

Fast facts:

Extend Partition Wizard help you step by step expand the size of your selected partition.

Merge two or more partitions into a larger one.

SPAMfighter Pro – Ten License Giveaway!

SPAMfighter has generously provided us with 10 free licenses for their award winning flagship product, SPAMfighter Pro.

To enter the contest to win a free license, simply add a comment at the end of this article. On January 14, 2011, all comments will be added to the online List Randomizer, and the first 10 names that come up, will win a free license for this award winning application.

As with previous giveaways, you don’t need to write a paragraph – “enter me”, or something similar, is enough. There’s no need for me to acknowledge your entry, but rest assured, if you comment – you’re in.

Good luck!

Read the following review, and I’m sure you’ll agree; this is definitely a contest worth entering!

SPAMfighter Pro:

 

image

The view that somehow Web based email is safer than a desktop-based email client, since Web based email clients such as Gmail, Hotmail and others, supposedly filter out all dangerous or unwanted content, is not an opinion that I entirely agree with. This view does not line up with my personal experiences.

The fact is, many desktop-based email clients can be superior in this area, since they offer advanced security options, as well as junk mail filters, and anti-phishing protection.

SPAMfighter, is a fee based (also available as a free version), anti-spam desktop application, designed for both typical at-home users, and business users, which continuously filters e-mail, to eliminate spam and protect users against phishing, and e-mail-borne viruses.

Each time you check your email in your email client, SPAMfighter automatically checks your mail against the SPAMfighter servers list of known spam messages. If a message is identified as spam, it is automatically moved to the Spam folder.

I’m a big fan of community based security applications such as WOT, and Immunet Protect, to name just two. SPAMfighter has embraced this community driven philosophy, and has built community-based filtering technology into the application which exploits the power of a very large community of users.

Here’s how that works: When a new e-mail arrives, it is automatically tested by SPAMfighter. If it’s spam, it will be instantly moved to your SPAMfighter folder. If you receive a spam mail that is not detected, just click on a single button, and the spam mail is removed from the rest of the 7,417,522 SPAMfighters in 228 countries/areas in seconds. In this way, very few people in the community will ever see the spam mail.

Setup is uncomplicated and straightforward.

Additional functionality can be accessed from the email client toolbar.

Fast facts:

Award winning technology to block spam

Protects all the email accounts on your PC

Protects against “phishing”, identity theft, and other email frauds

Privacy Guaranteed – we don’t see any of your email

Protects against “phishing”, identity theft, and other email frauds

Spam abuse reporting with one click

Unique language filtering tool – Stop emails in languages you don’t understand

Protection of multiple email accounts

Blacklist domains and emails

Automatic whitelist management

Interface in multiple languages

Option to move the toolbar in Microsoft Outlook

Free phone support

Unlimited Blacklist/Whitelist entries

If you run a desktop-based email client, then SPAMfighter is definitely worth taking a look at.

Note: SPAMfighter in basic mode, is free for individual users.

Supported Clients: Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Thunderbird, as well as for businesses in Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes environments, or even those seeking a 3rd party hosted solution.

System requirements: Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32bit and 64 bit).

Languages: English, German, Spanish, Chinese, French, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Suomi, Japanese, Portuguese, Bulgarian, Russian, Polish, Czech, Thai, Turkish and Danish.

Download at: SPAMfighter (If you decide not to buy a Pro license, you will be converted to the free Standard version when the trial expires).
