Top Sticky Notes Software for Windows (2019)

Simple Sticky Notes
Simple Sticky Notes has a bunch of text formatting options like different font styles, font colors, hyperlink. The notes support Images, Date & Time as well as special characters. If you have already copied the text onto the clipboard, you can choose to create a sticky note directly with the copied text in it. You can trigger this by pressing Alt+V which serves as a hotkey. The app houses many hotkeys as triggers and you can customize them as per your preference.

Vov Sticky Notes
For many people, the desktop is simply the place where shortcuts and icons are located, without any real functionality. Nonetheless, you can benefit from all the empty space on your desktop by adding post-its, and Vovsoft Sticky Notes is one of the apps that can help you do that. Once you install it on your PC, the application automatically goes to the system tray, and you can right-click its icon when you want to create a new note. It basically opens a resizable window where you can paste text or start typing some of your important tasks. You can also drag and drop image files. Another handy function of Vov Sticky Notes is that you can create reminders to be displayed on a regular basis. You only need to choose the frequency interval, and then enter an appropriate message.

Fortunately there are folder locker programs around. Vovsoft Hide Files, probably the easiest one of those, can password protect any secret or embarrassing files and hide them quickly.

Top Free Antivirus for Windows (2018)

Here are my personal opinions for these searching for a good free antivirus:

Avira Free Antivirus (Publisher: Avira) This is the best free antivirus. It has one of the best virus detection database and heuristic engine. It works on Windows 7 or later. The only problem is it sometimes displays advertisement.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition (Publisher: Bitdefender) Easy to use. Good virus detection. But it doesn’t allow user to change advanced settings.

Panda Free Antivirus (Publisher: Panda) Although it received good results for virus detection on some surveys, I personally experienced that it can’t detect some obvious infected files.

Avast Free Antivirus (Publisher: Avast) It is the only choice for Windows Vista users. But its protection is not successful.

AVG (Publisher: Avast) Not so different than Avast.

Kaspersky Free (Publisher: Kaspersky Lab) Seems OK, but not recommended for old and slow computers.

Simplewall: Simple but Powerful Firewall Software

At the ancient times of Windows 98, I personally used Signal9 Conseal Private Desktop which was a very simple firewall software. You could block everything, allow everything or select each software when it try to reach internet.

McAfee bought Signal9, used its core engine and published a new product: McAfee Personal Firewall. But it was big and slow for that time. After a while, Windows XP came up with new Winsock background. Thus Conseal Private Desktop was not working any more on new systems. Many years have passed away, many firewall applications entered to the market. But they were either big or lacked of features.
