Windows 7: Old Versions of your Favorite Software

FileHippo has been around forever when comparing that site to a number of others!

Ofen the freeware/shareware sites like or majorgeeks will still be seeing an older version of something or at least a link to software company that still carries previous releases.

As for device drivers for video, sound, and other things the manufacturers will often keep an archive page for the older versions available as well even if you have to contact their support to get them as well as other 3rd party sites that stock pile them.

In each software tool listing there's a link to old versions hosted on videohelp server. Many abandoned tools are still available for download there. Often you can look through the comments section and find the latest version introduced a severe bug, and back off a version or 2 until it's fixed etc..
Hi there
+1 rep for you

I was looking for WS_FTP -- great little ftp program which is still useful. A lot of the newer stuff is FAR TOO BLOATED.
This is nice and simple -- does "exactly what it says on the tin" -- without zillions of complicated unnecessary "features".

I'd wiped an old applications disk I had so I'd lost it.

Works fine on W7.

You'll find quite a bit will still work on 7 especially on the 32bit flavor. Just be careful when shopping around for old versions of things on different sites since you can easily run into some malwares hidden in zip files!

When first running scans on all drives with the new av program some were found tucked away alright in supposed utility file never opened. It wasn't the site's fault either but who intentionally included a bug.

How can I change my computer and not lose use of my favorite software

Favorite diagnostic software
I have used various types of diagnostic software in the past, and I cannot say that I am pleased with the results of any of them. I have a computer that appears to have bad video memory right now... I figured this would be a great time to find a program that can actually confirm this. I've run...

Favorite Backup Software
Just wondering what your favorite backup software other than the default window feature is. I've heard of and seen too many issues with Windows backup to rely on it in the case that my computer fails. Right now I'm using Macrium Reflect Free Edition, but I've heard of many others and I figured I'd...
