The title may be a bit misleading because only some of the are actually websites, the others are programs that you need to download from the websites. The links take you to sites where you can download them (most are softonic or filehippo).

  • CCleaner – to help keep your computer clean and organized (electronically, that is).
  • w3schools – learn how to do all that technical programming stuff.
  • Malwarebytes – to keep your computer free of malware and other bad stuff.
  • bplans – free sample business plans in almost every category imaginable.
  • Keepvid – allows you to download videos off of youtube (and I believe a couple other sites).
