AVG Rescue CD (USB Flash Drive Edition)
A free bootable disaster recovery environment

The AVG Rescue CD is a portable environment that comes with a range of tools to help you clean up a virus-infected PC, fix hard drive problems, and get an unbootable system working again.

The system includes a version of AVG antivirus, which can update itself over the internet to be sure it has the latest virus definitions. There's also a Registry editor, a tool to check for and fix hard drive errors, and a capable file manager.

This variant of the rescue CD is intended for installation on a USB flash drive. After downloading, you should extract the archive contents directly to the root folder of the USB drive you'd like to use. (If you don't have a tool that can read RAR files, then try 7-ZIP).

Once this is done, check the README file you've just extracted for more instructions. And be extremely careful. If you don't follow those instructions precisely, then executing the archive's "makeboot.bat" file could corrupt your hard drive and prevent Windows from loading.

Keep in mind also that not every PC can boot from a USB flash drive, so this tool won't work in all situations. If you can't use it to start your PC then we'd recommend you try the ISO version of the rescue CD, which should boot any PC with an optical drive.

Verdict:

An essential addition to everyone's disaster recovery toolkit. Download and burn a copy now - one day you'll be glad you did

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
