Stop -  
Paying for software
that you can get for FREE!!!

The FrugalComputerGuy.com - is the place that not only tells you about FREE software, but shows you how to use it.


NOTE: The free software listed on this page is NOT the only free software available. There are many more options available (Please see bottom of Links page for links to more free software not (yet) explained this site). All the free software listed on this website have YouTube videos and an overview of the software, to give you an idea if it is something that might work for you without making you download it and try it out for yourself, only to find it is not even close to what you thought it was.

Sometimes purchased software is required for a particular need, but this site is made to show you that there are free options available and you may want to look at them first, before spending your hard earned dollars!
