Useful Web Tools

Here is a collection of links to some tools that I have found both useful and reliable.

Remembers your passwords etc. 

Roboform

Last Pass

Remembers all your login addresses and forms, passwords and other form type data (credit cards etc).
Very safely secured and encrypted.  Optionally can be used to login from anywhere.
I have used this for years now and couldn't work without it.
Convert any files Zamzar Free.  Online conversion of any file format (except PSD) to almost any other file format.
Good, quick, reliable
Back up PC online (cloud)  Carbonite I have tried most of these and had problems with all except Carbonite.
Also easy to use and once setup you can genuinely just foget about it
One of the few who offer unlimited backup size.
Online Project Tool  Basecamp Fairly simple and user friendly, includes communication management etc.
Test your Broadband speed  Speedtest  Free. Accurate up and down speeds as far as I can tell
Edit and resize photos MS Picture Manager Comes with MS Office - from start bar look in MS Office, then in MS Tools
Is a very easy to use image editor that allows photo dimensions resizing, file size optimising, and cropping.
A very useful tool!
Free anti-virus programs AVG
AVAST
Free.  Both of these do a more than adequate job - and without any noticable impact on PC performance.
Registry cleaner CCleaner
Free.  The only registry cleaner I have used that did not have unwelcome side effects - and does a decent job.
Free spamware scanner Spybot Free. Often finds spyware and adware that anti-virus programs tend to miss
