Personal Ancestral File (PAF)
Free, (click on Order/Download Products), requires Windows 95 or higher - This offering from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of the most widely used genealogy software programs and one of the most user-friendly.

The PAF is much better & its Free!

But if you are sharing it with strangers, especially if you are putting it on the web, you will probably make your living relatives very unhappy if you include personal details about them. So, you need a way to "clean" all that personal data out of your GEDCOM file before you send it or convert it to HTML. GEDClean was the first program of it's kind, and has been filling this need since 1996. CLICK ONTO ORDER FREE STUFF NOW button to get to download page.

MAILTO GUARD
Free, Every webmaster knows that after a new e-mail address is published on a web page the corresponding account is soon filled up with spam. Why is this so? Spammers for several years now have been using spiders/crawlers on the World Wide Web to continually search the contents of sites for the "@" character and collect every e-mail address they find for inclusion in their target address databases. MAILTO GUARD can encode your e-mail address so that it can't be recognised by spammer tools, but remains perfectly visible (and functional!) to you and the vistiors of your page. A free executable version (no installation required) for Windows is available as well as this online Flash version for immediate use. There's also a universal version available for Mac, Linux or any operating system supporting the Flash Player plugin. Product Requirements: Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/MAC/LINUX
ProcessGuard
FREE, ProcessGuard is a groundbreaking security system first released late in 2003 that protects Windows from attacks by other processes, services, drivers, and other forms of executing code on your system.
ProcessGuard also stops applications from executing without the user's consent, stops malicious worms and trojans from being executed silently in the background, as well as a variety of other attacks. ProcessGuard even stops most keyloggers and leaktests, and is recognised by many to be the most comprehensive anti-rootkit solution available.
Why do you need it?
Security-conscious users on the Internet these days typically have a firewall and anti-virus program at the very least, yet very few users are aware that these layers of security can easily be rendered null and void simply by terminating or modifying the host process. For example, a trojan could simply terminate your personal firewall before attempting to transmit your personal details over the Internet, effectively rendering the firewall useless and leaving the user with a false sense of security. Likewise, it could modify your anti-virus program by patching it in memory so that it no longer detects any viruses, so even with a database update and even if it was a known trojan it would remain undetected.
Rootkits are another serious threat, because once they've infected your system they can often be extremely difficult to detect (as they modify the operating system itself in order to hide, effectively becoming stealth trojans). ProcessGuard allows you to block the installation of rootkit drivers, preventing any infection from occurring. Firewall bypass techniques are also another big security problem where ProcessGuard can lend a hand. These are just some of the many advantages you'll get from securing your system with ProcessGuard.
