Various Freeware and Shareware

As I was wandering the web I happened across several bits of freeware and shareware that are not directly related to psychology but are useful in the areas of general computing, security, and program downloads and updates. I also saw the IE7 Beta2, downloaded it and tried it. It is not yet ready for prime time. Somehow it corrupted the ActiveX tool that uploads and displays pictures in MSN Spaces. It will quite likely integrate with all the other modifications that Microsoft is making in preparation for Vista and the new Office version, but has problems with current software.
