Links to the latest versions of other software and utilities...

Internet Browsers & eMail Handlers
Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
The latest Netscape version - or the tried and tested 4.7x.
Get Opera! The much vaunted browser and email client. Well worth trying as an alternative to (and improvement on?) Internet Explorer and Netscape.
Get Eudora A great email client - well worth trying. Has features not available in Outlook Express or Netscape Messenger.
Other software and utilities
A full suite of Office programs. Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Database, Graphics etc. MS Office functionality and compatability. From Sun Systems. But be warned - this is about a 70Mb file. But well worth the trouble. Freeware 
Download the latest version of the Acrobat Reader. Freeware 
Acrobat's eBook Reader (not required for Eric Shackle's eBook!). Freeware 
The latest version of WinZip. Trial version.
Hardcopy A great program for capturing, editing, printing, storing, displaying and emailing Windows screens. This should have been built into Windows 9x/XP - if Bill had only thought of it. Freeware 
HomeBase A book management system. Actually designed for the specialist bookshop, but it also works very nicely for the private library (or even just your collection of paperbacks and magazines). Freeware 
Download an Anti-Virus Test File to check your AV software settings.
