Hi All ...
Reading some recent postings in various threads, I think the following site may be of interest, it may be known to some already as a useful source for finding software.
URL : http://www.tucows.com/
It can be searched in a variety of ways, by OS, by type etc, and comes sorted by price categories, (ie) freeware, shareware and paid for.

I just tried Robert, and had no problems, I am using XP Pro and Firefox browser, maybe there is a block on some sites preset somewhere on your system perhaps ?

It bombed twice when I first tried but now seems to be OK if a bit slow.

When I tried before I edited it into my book marks and tried and still to no avail.
I tried again about two minutes ago and it came up within 2 seconds, something odd somewhere.

Hi Robert ....
Glad you managed it in the end - I haven't used it for a little while, but when getting the software, you do get a choice of alternative sites from which to download, so if Tucows home is a bit flakey, the alternatives should be better.

Another site you may be interested in is www.filehippo.com it also has an updater which scans your computer for any updates needed for any of the free software on your computer. I have used this site for a couple of years now with no problem.
