Unzipping tool that's 
free, fast and easy to use.
Unzip only, 
but great for Win 9x users on a budget.

Stickies

Have you ever put "sticky notes" on your pc monitor to remind you to do something important? Have you ever had these notes fall off and get lost or forgotten?

Well this small tool lets you put notes on your desktop without that sticky residue,
and there's no chance of these notes falling off or getting lost.
You can change the color, font, transparency level and even set alarms,
or hide your notes until a specific day or date or time.

 


Clean Screen.exe

A simple tool I setup to help you clean your monitor.
Sometimes it's easier to see dirt on a black or white or best of all a green screen. This tool lets you move between colored screens to show the dirt you thought you got. It also helps you see dead pixels on an LCD monitor.

 

 

Multimedia


QuickMixIn_103.exe

Cool!
I finally got my soundcard tweaked just the way I like it!
Doh!
The program I just launched reset everything!
Now I have to start all over again #$%#@$%!.

Now you can save and restore audio settings quickly and easily. So if a program or crash messes up your "perfect" audio settings,
You can "re tune" your setting with a single click.
You can also save multiple different settings for different situations. For example, everyday using your Desktop speakers, another one for when you hook up to your home stereo, another one for when you have guests etc...


MP3ext33b17.exe

View and even edit the ID3 tags
of MP3s from Windows Explorer.
Right click an MP3 and you'll have an extra tab for viewing and editing the ID3 tag. This tool can also change the icon for each MP3 based on its bitrate, so you can see what quality the MP3 is at a glance.


CDEX

Rip CDs to wav, MP3 or other formats
Free and easy to use.
I wanted to embellish a bit, but what else can I say?

Oh, did I mention it's free?


Winamp

Winamp is my favorite MP3 player.
This feature rich player is compact and very customizable.
It also plays many other multimedia files,
and streaming audio and video.


Duplicate File Finder 1.1.0.0 DupSetup.exe

Trying to conserve space?
Tired of hearing the same song more than once?
Duplicate File Finder will search your music collection and lets you remove duplicate files.
Can be used for any file type, but is most useful for music and images since you are more likely to have the same song or image in more than one folder.
You choose what to remove and where to move it to.
Move to another folder, recycle bin, or delete forever, it's your choice!
Here's a sample of what it found for me.

IrfanView - Freeware Graphic Viewer
irfanview.com

Irfanview is the absolute Best image viewer!
And it's Free!

You can view almost any image out there even CAD files with a free plug-in! You can even do some image editing, file conversion, extract icons from EXE and DLL files, even convert text files into images.

Far too many features for me to mention here, but I wouldn't even mention it here if I didn't use it and love it!

I've used this program for many years, and I am amazed that it is still free! I highly recommend donating if you enjoy it as much as I do.


Auto Stitch

Sure, your digital camera might offer "panorama" pictures.
Many just "crop" the picture you take to make it look like a panorama. Others try to splice individual pictures together with some tedious software and leave you with an image that you would never share, much less print.
AutoStitch from UBC does a great job of "stitching" your individual photos together both horizontally and vertically.
I haven't seen a better tool yet for this task and it is still free!
Here is a sample using 5 individual photos of mine.
But it can do much more!

internet Tools


Firefox Web Browser (link)


The new king of the web.
What Internet Explorer wants to be!
A must have!


Sygate_Personal_Firewall
V4.2-b872.exe
This older version is more stable for Win 9x users,
but try the newest version below.

The Best firewall available!
It even has a packet viewer.


Sygate Persona
l Firewall 5.6
This is the most recent version, and unfortunately the last free version of this great firewall.
Sygate has discontinued offering a free version of there firewall.
If I wasn't so cheap, I'd pay for it!


RealVNC-3.3.6.exe

Free remote PC administration
Great for home-LAN or long distance.


For even more VNC options and features
check out Ultra VNC


timeRC.zip

Set your computer to the atomic
time from one of several time servers.
Great for Win 9x users, especially those who have problems with time losses or gains due to over-clocking or RTC errors.

 


Check P3

The best e-mail checker / announcer
that I have ever used!
And its still Free!

This tool checks to see if you have new mail and lets you know if you do in several ways, including sys tray icon flash, popup window, wav file alerts and / or MS Agent characters with individual "scripts" for each mail account.

Check P3 has been around for many years, but it's still the best in my opinion.
No nags, no spyware, no ads, no bloat.

 


K-Lite Mega Codec Pack

Ok. This is an internet tool and a multimedia tool.
Have you ever downloaded a video from the internet and found out that you couldn't view it with Media Player?

Don't install yet another new video player to play this one type of movie or audio file. K-Lite Mega Pack has all of the codecs needed to play almost any video or audio file with Windows Media Player, or your favorite Media Player. Plus it's free!
