Top 18 Most Stable Windows Software and Utilities of 2017

Here is the list of the software utilities on my computers that have withstood a whole year of tinkering with Windows 10, bad Windows updates, hard drive partitions getting swapped back and forth, crappy antivirus programs, and other scam software (Here’s looking at you Zemana!).

Other programs have had to uninstalled and then reinstalled because of bugs or updates. Or sometimes they just quit working.. MalwareBytes almost made it onto this list, but I’ve never seen an install of it lasting more than few months before it just disappears. As in, no clue why and no traces of it left on the computers.. /shrug !

Troy Hunt on “Don’t tell people to turn off Windows Update”

I totally agree with his advice. Why? Because your machine remains open to attacks if it is not kept updated with the latest security measures. And it’s easy to forget to check!

So, don’t turn off Windows Updates!
