Family Safety - Windows Live

If you have young children in the household, this free Microsoft program may be useful for you. Family Safety allows you to block or allow websites, monitor the sites your children go to, and specify who they can instant message with if they are using Hotmail or Windows Live Messenger.

Windows Live has a host of other useful free programs for your use as well – including Windows Live Writer – if you are a blogger, you’ll find it to be indispensible – I am using that program as I write this blog right now.

Windows Movie Maker can also be downloaded from this site. (If you haven’t seen my video on how to convert your digital pictures into a movie – watch the YouTube video showing you how to use this program.)

As always, if you become a Facebook Fan, you can find all kinds of new and useful downloads every few days and our free toolbar will keep you connected to us as well.


Happy Spring All!
