Shareware is a kind of software that is initially free for a certain period of time (usually 30 days) then once the trial period is up you have to pay and register it to keep it (if you want it). Some shareware will disable particular features of the product until you register it as an extra reason to pay for the full version. Normally shareware is cheaper than commercial programs however, as a result they are not always as robust and can be prone to problems. The best place to look for shareware is the Internet and you may be surprised as the variety of system utilities available.
