Of all the soft ware I have the one that I am most impressed with, and also get the most benefit from is Directory Opus from GP softIt is a great replacement for windows explorer, has built in so many functions, that I used to have lots of little programs trying to do.It was one I think is well worth the money. It is also a work in progress and keeps getting better.

Sequoia View - cushioned treemap view. For those overstuffed hard drives with no apparent cause. I found a 1.4GB win.tmp file today on a 3.8GB drive. :blink:It looks kind of weird, but once you get used to it, it's great! :D

I nominate Total Uninstall for the hall of fame.This is a freeware utility that gets rid of the lame applications you try but decide to trash.I would be afraid to try most of the freeware I find if not for this program.It takes a snapshot of the registry and file system before the install and compares it with the snapshot it takes after the install. It allows you to undo 99% of the changes that most apps make to your system.Total UninstallI use this nearly every day because I have a small freeware review site and I am always trying new programs out.

Oldies but goodies.
Indeed. I loved my ProComm and the scripts you could program for it. LapLink was very useful before we got things networked. Xtree I never cared as much for, I preferred PC Valet instead. In fact I still have it on some of my Win 98 boot disks.

Edp,i caught one of your other posts referring to an old script you had written for a 2400 baud modem!Historical :lol: :lol: or is that hysterical? :) patio B)p.s. tinkering with XTRee years back i stripped out all unneeded components and pared it down to size to a bootable floppy with all the features... very handy.

Hello Bobi-p.What operating system are you using?If you click on the link to download "Rainlendar" again does the download window show you where it will put the file? Usually, but certainly not always, it's in the My Documents folder, sometimes under the Downloads subfolder. But sometimes it's on the Desktop, though that doesn't appear to be the location in your case. :)

start a search on your system for " RainlendarInstaller.exe " or " Rainlendar-version number.exe " ,depending on the version you downloaded : that will show you the location to where you downloaded it on your system. (Last version was 0.19.3)

Hi folks, I'm just getting statred here so bare with me if my favorite software has already been mentioned. First, I no longer could live without Yankee Clipper the clipboard utility. Now in X version and better than ever. We all do a lot of installing and un-installing of programs. Total Uninstall is the ticket if you want to remove all changes that a program puts on your computer when you installed it. Tired of those pesky pop-ups and spyware being dumped on your computer? Try AdsGone, a very nice program with regular updating features. I could go on as I have many programs that I found and installed over the years but lets see if these three are able to help out any of you. DasBosun.

helloi like the program Eraser . i have used this for deleting trojins and spyware and files nothing else would touch. some times to kill trojins you need to run eraser from safe mode. and over writing a trojins the best practice to kill removing the file headers like in deleting to windows trash may not actually kill some trojins. of course with there file header gone theres a good chance of them being over written by next file you d/l or move etc. but not always and some can still open back doors after a windows delete. and even move them selfs. well enough on trojins giving script kiddies ideas.http://www.heidi.ie/eraser/ :thumbsup:

The topic is software to the hall of fame. I had "i diary" installed on my computer for a short time before it crashed. Now I don't have "i diary" any more, and I miss it. Does anyone know where I can get another copy of this freeware? I thought it was pretty good, but I don't know if it's good enough to be in the hall of fame.
I finally found the diary I was looking for. It's called I daily diary. It works really well, and it's free. It's from http://www.splinterware.com, if anyone is interested.

Microsoft Streets and Trips is a fantastic program (if you need it). Usually available for under twenty bucks after rebate. I've used it many times to plan trips, and the driving directions are extremely good. Massive database, including restaurants, hotels, etc.

Only frequent use and comparison with other products show the merits of software you can nominate.I nominate:- Windows XP Pro. Well, it is an operating system and not application software, right, but without an operating system you are not able to run any kind of application software - first check the fundament on which you run any application. When the operating system is not stable enough or does not support your work well, then there is no need to evaluate application software at all. I have run all kind of Windows operating systems, but none of them is such stable, flexible, powerful, and application friendly. This is why it comes first. I have evaluated several Linux versions including Suse and RedHat considering security, safety, user interface, daily work support, supported applications - I always returned to Windows XP Pro.- MS Internet Explorer is my second, because it still excels competitor products. There are many aspects to consider like standards, security, and flexibility. I have evaluated most of other competitors and always returned to Internet Explorer.- MS FrontPage is my third, because I need a fundament to store and develop ideas, outline topics and connect all by links and with other documents. I have checked many outliners and free structured databases like TreePad up to content management systems like Typo3 with MySQL support. None of them is such easy to use, flexible for extensions, easy to integrate with hyperlinked documents, websites and powerful enough like MS FrontPage. Highly recommended for private unstructured and linked dabases. Tip: To search across your linked documents use Lookout of Outlook, blindingly fast indexing of your enumerated folders to search.- MS Office is used for daily office work and I do not regret it. I need the power, flexibility and user friendly interface. Last and not least the identical office feeling and interface across all applications. - For emails and contact work I still use MS Outlook, flexible and powerful enough for every day use. Competitor products are not such powerful and user friendly.- For reading newsgroups after evaluating many clients I recommend 40tude Dialog. It is powerful, flexible and stable. - For searching internet I use Google and Copernic Agent Pro.Of course I use other software as well but the above come first.

:P I think most of us here can relate to that. Someone needs to develop "nerd" addons for these things. :ph34r:

My Favorite all time program is Paltalk (www.paltalk.com) This talk program is free or for the bells and whistles buy it. I've used it for 3 years and have found it very usefull when I needed help. Seems like you can always find a room that relates to your needs. The tech help rooms are very usefull. My #2 is PicoPhone . Its free at http://www.vitez.it/picophone/index.html. Just run it (it doesnt install just runs from its folder) onyour computer and another computer anywhere. (Ive talked to buddies in Austrailia, UK, all over the US) then with it running just put in your buddies IP and it rings on his computer.

:D Looks like Irfanview is the most valuable player. I can't argue with that. It's very handy.My can't live without apps are:Exact Audio Copyhttp://www.exactaudiocopy.de/It makes THE best mp3 rips I've ever found. Did I mention it's free? (Actually, it's 'postcardware.')And there are any number of well written guides to tweaking the settings to produce sparkling sounds for your listening pleasure.DOS 5When the bomb goes off and we are just getting started again as a civilization, I hope there's some DOS 5 somewhere to help us get it back together
