Happy Diwali to all my readers,

As a Diwali gift, I am planning to give genuine free Kasperksy Anti virus software to everyone. As you might already be aware of, Kaspersky is one of the leading Antivirus Software makers in the world.

KAV : Kaspersky Anti-virus and KIS : Kaspersky Internet Security are their two very known and acclaimed products. KISĀ  is KAV + Firewall. I will show you how to get genuine 6 months license for KAV.

click here to visit Kaspersky India website and on the top left corner you have a link to get free KAV 2009.

Once again, Happy and Safe Diwali to you and your computer :)

Disclaimer : I don’t work for Kaspersky Labs nor do I get any commission by promoting Kaspersky. This is for general public information and my 2 cents to promote usage of genuine software.

Here is a list of my favourite applications, its not exhautive though.

Media Player : The KMPlayer

This is the best media player I have seen so far, mind you I have used VLC, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, Zoom, etc etc. The number of options you find in this is really amazing. It has very good audio and video filters which can be customized, drag and drop support for subtitles, subtitles position setting, subtitle syncing which I have found to be most useful.

It plays whatever you throw at it, loads videos with similar names automatically, i.e., if you have ????s01e01 after it is finished ????s01e02 gets loaded automatically if its in the same folder. Another feature which impressed me a lot is that “After Playback” feature. It lets you choose the action which it has to perform after completing the current playlist/track/movie which includes a simple exit, shutdown and others.

Highly Recommended

Browser : Mozilla / Opera

Its not a secret that Windows Internet Explorer is buggy and prone to attack by malacious codes. Managing Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) is a nightmare. I strongly suggest using Mozilla Firefox 3.1 which eventhough crashes sometimes if used with lots of plugins, is a decent browser. The best part of it (sometimes also the worst) is the ability to add add-ons.

Opera : The best out there

Opera is not only intuitive but also beautiful with all the features you can think of. I sometimes feel Opera has all those ‘plug-ins and add ons’ of Mozilla built into it. Most Compatible with the latest standards, available on multiple platforms, ability to configure ‘speed dial’ are some of the pros worth mentioning.

Uhff.. My hands are aching, hence I will just mention some nice applications. Google it for download links :D
