Ashampoo AntiSpyWare, by ashampoo GmbH & Co. KGis a slick solution to the problem of "spyware". And it detects and removes all of the various types of malware including keyloggers,pop-ups, adware, and more. Once installed the program works in the background and the program is constantly updated. It's more difficult today to spread those types of infections. Not so with "spyware".

Ashampoo AntiSpyware has been designed to detect and eliminate all types of spyware, including the vicious "rootkits." And if you want, you can set the program to update itself every day. That means you're always protected against the latest threats. The program provides some features not found in similar products. For example, it helps you to monitor programs that start with Windows and remove those you don't want. It can also delete your tracks, block SPAM, monitor system processes, wipe files so they can't be restored, and more.

So, if you want to have total protection against all manner of sinister things circulating around the Internet, take a look at Ashampoo AntiSpyware. It's an anti-spyware product and a whole lot more. Like getting multiple products in one, convenient package.


Battlefield Cribbage, by A Step Beyond Nowherewas one of my Quick Picks a few weeks ago. As I mentioned then,I've always loved Cribbage since my Dad taught me to play when I was 8years old. He had been Cribbage Champion of the Pacific Fleet during World War II, so I learned from one of the best. I think he'd have likedBattlefield Cribbage. In the most fundamental sense it stays true to the classic game of Cribbage. At the same time, however, it adds anew level of intensity. It introduces strategy, which is an interesting concept for Cribbage. Nicely done.

Battlefield Cribbage is easy-to-learn whether you already knowhow to play or not. How do I know? I had a fried who doesn't play Cribbage try it out. The scoring is same with only some minor differences introduced by this games approach. I suppose the biggest difference is that you can see all the cards, which you normally can't in regular Cribbage. In a way, that is where the strategy comes in. You make decisions knowing what the other players have and there can be up to 4 players.

If you're looking for a fun, non-violent game to play, tryBattlefield Cribbage. For those who play Cribbage it's a way to add more excitement and challenge to the game. And if you haven't played Cribbage before, Battlefield Cribbage will get you hooked. It really kicks it up a notch and the introduction of strategy really makes a difference. I like Battlefield Cribbage so much that it's not only a Pick, it's also a Dr. File Finder Favorite and there aren't very many of those. So, check it out for yourself, I think you'll like it.

Kyodai Mahjongg also has helpful features like undo, just in case you make a mistake. You can even get hints from the game as to how to move forward. Very slick. So, if you'd like to try your hand at the classic tile game of Mahjongg, give Kyodai Mahjongg a try.
