Kim Komando - Daily Download

Freebies from Microsoft

Windows is the most-used software in the world. It runs on over 90 percent of all computers in existence. That's a lot of configurations to handle.

It's also a lot of users to keep happy. One software program can't perfectly suit everyone. That's why Microsoft has provided extra enhancements. Best of all, they're free.

Let's take a look at a bunch of them:

Windows Live Movie Maker (Vista and 7)
Windows Movie Maker (XP only) 
Internet videos continue to grow in popularity. Posting home videos to YouTube is almost required now. Fortunately, making your own movie is easier than ever.

Microsoft's free Movie Maker offers the basic editing functionality you need. Hook up a camera and you'll be editing in no time.

Movie Maker Creativity Fun Pack (XP only) – Movie Maker for XP is a nice, basic video editor. It's great for casual users. But what if you wanted to spice things up a bit?

The Creativity Fun Pack adds additional video titles. You also get free music and sound effects. Use it to take your videos to the next level.

Photo Gallery – Digital photos are everywhere. Nearly all cell phones include digital cameras. Unfortunately, Windows' photo organizing options aren't that great.

Windows Live Photo Gallery is a good solution. You can organize photos by date or type, or add custom tags. There are also basic photo-editing features. And plenty of output options are included, such as burning CDs.

Windows Live Writer – Blogs are basically online journals. You can create entries about topics that interest you. There are also options to upload photos and videos. However, blogs aren't always convenient to update. Most have a Web-based management interface. It would be nicer to use a program like Word.

Windows Live Writer is like Word for blogs. Create a blog entry using a desktop program. Easily add media. Then upload the entry to your blogging site. Writer works with all the major blogging services.

Desktops – Multitasking is a great computer feature. In many cases, it increases productivity. However, too many open programs can lead to desktop clutter.

Stay organized using Desktops. This program lets you create up to four virtual desktops. Assign certain programs to each virtual desktop. Then switch between desktops with a click of the mouse. You only see the program windows you need to see.

BgInfo – Configuration information about your computer is useful. However, it can be a pain to find. This is especially true when something is going wrong.

That's why you need BgInfo. This small program puts your computer's information on your desktop background.  This includes processor type and operating system information.

Process Explorer – Sometimes your computer acts up. In most cases, Task Manager will help you get it working again. However, Task Manager's information often is vague.

Process Explorer is a more powerful version of Task Manager. It shows you more information. And the information is often clearer. This makes it more useful for tracking and fixing computer problems.

Office 2007 Help Tab – In Office 2007, Microsoft changed the interface considerably with the Ribbon menu. And the Help menu was replaced by a hard-to-find icon. This confused some people.

Office 2007 Help Tab rectifies this issue. As the name implies, it adds a Help tab to the Ribbon. You now get easily accessible options for searching the help database.

IbarraReal font – Fonts change the way text appears on your computer. Windows ships with quite a few standard fonts. More fonts can be downloaded or purchased online.

Microsoft recently released a high-quality font, IbarraReal. It's based on a print type from 1780. It originally appeared in the Royal Spanish Academy's edition of Don Quixote. Thisont is a wonderful mix of tradition and technology.

Kim Komando - Daily Download

Create beautiful photo mosaics the easy way

Mosaics are pretty impressive. Creating a large image from small colored tiles is hard work. Everything has to be just right.

With computers, mosaics are even more impressive. Instead of little colored tiles, you can use entire photographs. This allows you to do mosaics with themes.

However, mosaics take a long time to put together. That's why AndreaMosaic was created. It lets you make photo mosaics in no time.

First, select the main image you want to reproduce. Then select your supply of photos. The free version can process up to 100,000. It will then select up to 30,000 photos for the mosaic. This should be enough for most users.

However, a professional version is also available. This can sort and use up to 500,000 photos. You can get the professional version, and upgrades for life, for a $38 donation.

That's a lot of photos. However, even 100 photos can produce an interesting mosaic. The program has a number of ways to control the output. You can play around to find what works best for you.

Cost: Free
System: Windows XP, Vista, and 7

Mega Swagbucks Day

It is Mega Swagbucks Friday! With the new system you have the possibility of earning as many as 1000 Swagbucks from just one search! So get searching and share any big Swagbucks you win...we love the inspiration! *It only takes 450 SB to get a $5 Amazon Gift Card!!

Have you been getting your three Swagbucks by scrolling through the Special Offers everyday? I haven't. I've done it a few times, but 3 Swagbucks just doesn't motivate me enough to look through those adds everyday.

 What is Swagbucks? Swagbucks is a search engine. It is powered by Google and It is no different than searching on any other search engine except that you have the chance to win Swagbucks. Swagbucks are like points that you can turn in for cash or gift cards. Unlike other online point systems, it doesn't take months and months to earn a gift card. Most people can earn a gift card a month through regular searching. If you take part in all their other ways to earn points, you can earn multiple gift cards every month! My goal is to pay for all of my holiday presents with Swagbucks this year. You can sign up here and earn 30 points just for signing up.

Simple and free file encryption

Storing sensitive information is tricky business. Information stored on paper can get lost. Computer files can be stolen.

That is why there are hardware safes and software encryption, respectively. The problem with both is that they aren't very portable. For example, you can't open most encrypted files on a different computer. That computer would need the same encryption program.

LockNote solves that issue. It is a basic text editor, like NotePad on Windows. But each created file has an embedded encryption program.

For example, you create a text file containing your Social Security number. When you save in LockNote, you will be prompted for a password. Then the file will be created.

You can transfer the file to any computer. Just double-click the file to open it as normal. You will be prompted for the password you created. Enter the password and your information is available. However, anyone without the password won't have access.

You can also copy and paste information into LockNote. Any text document can be transferred. This is helpful as LockNote wasn't designed as a word processor.

Baby Guessing Game

This is open to friends and family. As you know we are due to have a baby boy within a month! We did this kind of poll for our nephew just over 3 years ago, but we only included a few of us.

(Closest guesses win nothing. Sorry. It's all just fun)

1. How much weight did I gain throughout the pregnancy?
2. What date will he be born?
3. What time on that date will he be born?
4. How much will he weigh?
5. What will we name him?
6. How long will labor last?

You don't have to answer right now, but please don't leave a blank answer! Think about it, then come back. I am posting this link in a new section right under my header on the left hand side of this blog!

Target - Cheap Poptarts

Target also has their 12 packs of poptarts on sale for $2.50 each with a $5 gift card when you buy 4.  There is a $1/2 coupon on TARGET.COM but I think you can only print 1 per computer.  Buy 4 poptarts, use 1 coupon, and pay $9.  After the $5 gift card, it would be $4, or $1/box of 12 poptarts.  Do this deal and the cereal deal as 2 separate transactions and you can use 1 gift card to pay for the other deal and still have a $5 gift card at the end.  If you want more than 4 poptarts or 4 cereals, you can buy 8 and get 2 $5 giftcards in one transaction.

Thanks Savings Sisters!

Turn your computer off automatically

Computers use electricity, which costs money. It's easy to forget that when using a desktop computer. Laptops have batteries that run down to remind us.

Windows has good power management features. However, the computer stays on, which still uses electricity. Sometimes you want it to turn off completely.

Airytec Switch Off is the solution. This lightweight program can power down your computer automatically. There are a number of triggers that can be used.

It can be set to turn off at certain times. Or, it can turn off if the computer goes idle. For example, you have to leave for work while something is downloading. After the download finishes, the computer can turn itself off.
You can also set it to restart, sleep or log off the user. There are ways to access it remotely. It can even automatically run other applications instead of shutting down.
