Hello everybody and SeniorNet fans
hope everything is great with you
Today I picked for you some free useful software for your PC ( Desktop or Laptop) or even for your tablets, I hope you like them.
1- Apache OpenOffice
Everybody knows MS office by the giant Microsoft, we love MS office, we edit our letters, correspondence, using Microsoft Word, we also love to make calculation and statistics and charts thanks to the famous Excell and also making stunning presentation thanks to PowerPoint, etc …
But we don’t like the price of this wonderful MS Office which is a bit expensive.
Don’t worry There is always an alternative, free, great features almost the same as Ms Office:
What is Apache OpenOffice?
Apache OpenOffice features six personal productivity applications: a word processor (and its web-authoring component), spreadsheet, presentation graphics, drawing, equation editor, and database. OpenOffice is released on Windows, Solaris, Linux and Macintosh operation systems, with more communities joining, including a mature FreeBSD port. OpenOffice is localized, supporting over 110 languages worldwide.
OpenOffice.org was donated to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) on June 1, 2011. As with any code base brought to to the ASF, OpenOffice.org underwent incubation before graduating to a top-level project on 2012-10-17.
You can download and enjoy Apache OpenOffice for free, what you said for free? yes for free without paying any penny

2- Best free Antivirus 2015
360 Total Security
If you’re looking for a standalone antivirus package then 360 Total Security might seem a little overweight. It provides antiphishing support, online shopping protection, network threat blocking, hard drive clean-up tools, a Windows update checker, and more.
This feature overload does make for a relatively complex interface. It’s not always easy to operate, and if you run into problems there’s no significant documentation to help.
Still, what makes the suite interesting is that it uses no less than four antivirus engines. Install it and you can be protected by Bitdefender technology (an excellent commercial engine), Avira (probably the best of the free offerings), and two further engines of Qihoo’s own.
Avast Free Antivirus
While free antivirus software won’t cost you anything to download, you might sometimes find you’ll pay in other ways. Install Avast Free Antivirus and it’ll also equip your PC with Google toolbar, unless you’re paying attention and clear the relevant checkbox.
The advertising doesn’t stop there. By default Avast Free Antivirus scans for “performance issues” (junk files, unnecessary apps) as well as malware. It then displays any problem areas in a banner, but won’t fix any of them unless you buy Avast’s GrimeFighter.
Fortunately you don’t have to live with this. Avast Free Antivirus has an excellent interface – it’s clean, clear and configurable – and in just a few clicks you can set it up to avoid the pointless GrimeFighter scan.
AVG AntiVirus Free
If you’ve ever wondered why security companies give away free software, AVG AntiVirus Free gives you the answer. They’re a great marketing opportunity, and the program comes with a host of ads, “Go Pro” buttons and website links which try to persuade you to upgrade.
Still, AVG AntiVirus Free does at least spend most of the time out of sight, running in the background, so this may not matter very much. And the program does have other compensations.
An excellent scheduler automatically runs scans at regular intervals, on certain days of the week or month – maybe when your system boots. It’s just as easy to schedule program and definition updates, ensuring these won’t tie up network bandwidth when you need it most.
