Google Pack Updated

Google Pack, a collection of useful and free Windows applications and utilities, has been upgraded to include free virus and spyware detection and removal tools.

The new members of the pack are Norton Security Scan and Spyware Doctor Starter Edition. Both utilities are fairly well-respected in their fields so they're worthwhile additions to the suite. The anti-virus software originally included was only free for six months, after which it turned into nag-ware while it tried to get you to pay for updates.

The rest of the pack contains…

  • Google Earth
  • Picasa
  • Google Photos Screensaver (updated to support photofeeds)
  • Google Desktop
  • Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer
  • Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar
  • Adobe Reader
and optionally…
  • Google Talk
  • RealPlayer
  • Skype
  • Google Video Player
  • GalleryPlayer HD Images
Mac OS X users can download from Google Software Downloads for the Mac, which contains…
  • Google Earth
  • Google Notifier
  • Google Toolbar
  • Google Widgets
  • Google Sketchup
  • Picasa Web Albums Uploader
