Free programs for your computer
We are starting out with just one program, and hope to add many other free programs in weeks to come.
These programs are tested to be OK to install in the home computer you received through the Fairfax County CNCP program.
If you have any questions, want help installing a program, or if you have any trouble with your computer, you are welcome to call our help telephone line 703-662-3002. Call any time. If we cannot answer, please leave a message with your name and number, and we will try to call you back within 24 hours.
The Antenna program lets you listen to thousands of local radio stations in many countries around the world that broadcast over the Internet, and this program lets you listen to those stations. The program shows you a world map with dots for cities that have local stations — it lists over 9,000 local stations for you to choose from.
