In addition to a an up-to-date virus scanner, we also highly recommend the free programme Spybot Search&Destroy; be it for the Internet or Usenet.

VLC Mediaplayer

The VLC Mediaplayer is a powerful media player which can play back virtually any of the current video and music formats.

A big plus factor is that it is possible to view films with the VLC Mediaplayer while they are still downloading.

So, as you commence downloading you can immediately check whether it makes sense to continue and thus prevent a needless usage of the download capacity.

The VLC Mediaplayer is available for free and can be downloaded directly from the Usenet.
