Best Free Start Menu Replacement 4 weeks 1 day ago AtlBo

If you will be on Windows 7 for a while, Start Menu Reviver is worth a look. It's very well written software and a compact and configurable start menu replacement program. The replacement search bar works to perfection, and there are great shortcuts to Windows settings dialogs that are placed in an unobtrusive way in a narrow bar across the left of the menu. The actual menu is in two parts. One is a visually appealing tiled arrangement, where tiles can be a little bit bigger than an icon or 1/4 size. You can add tiles, move them, resize them, and even select or change the color. There is also support for adding internet links as tiles. Setting up the tiles is simple. You select the start file for the program and the icon is added, which adds to the visual appeal of the menu. Moving the tiles is simple drag and drop and works perfectly. The second part of the menu pops out the right and is otherwise a standard Windows 7 style menu. The only difference is that there are choices for using the menu in the standard fashion for Programs or conveniently for Recent Items, My Documents, or even a Custom configurable setting where you can decide what you would like to see. And you can go back and forth between the view choice. Size of the menu is configurable along with colors and overall this is a great solution for a free start menu. Best of all the program is optimized and really performs. It snaps like a start menu should.

Just like to recommend what a few other people have mentioned - Classic Shell. Small download, installs with no hassles, and uses hardly any system resources. It has lots of settings to fiddle around with, and (you can choose to install this or not) it adds some additional functionality to Explorer.

Some of the best features of this program are: 1) It can be set up to highlight recently installed programs. That way if any programs give you problems, you can quickly see which ones you just installed. I don't remember how long it highlights them, but I think it's for at least a week. 2) It's great for using without the mouse. Faster method than the built-in menu. A friend of mine that has this program only uses it mouse free. 3) Being able to make your own personal categories, other that just the All Programs, Quick Start and Autorun categories. 4)Can change the size of the font and the length and height of the program window. And more. It's a great program!

Best Free Font Manager 4 days 5 hours ago Bruce_Fraser

A lot of research went into this page - thanks!
For me, one of the primary criteria for a font manager is that it automatically puts fonts in categories, as in: serif, sans-serif, fixed-width, script, decorative, other. This is immensely helpful when looking for a alternative font. None of the freebies do this. I'm still using PCMag.com's FontViewer 2, which they temporarily gave as a freebie way back in 2001, and it still works perfectly on Win 8.1.
So if any font manager programmers look here for ideas, there you go.

Never Re-install Windows Again Part 3: Imaging your hard drive 1 year 9 months ago blackhole

used BartPE to run DriveImage XML to restore the recent image copy of the C: drive. the original image copy sent to my newly created partition as outlined in part 2 of the above articles went to successful conclusion. and the restore to the C: drive also went to successful conclusion. So, the next step is to shut down Bart and then to do a standard startup, right. the computer doesn't thinks so. it immediately said that 'ntldr is missing'. the original image copy was built with no raw mode and split large files and 'good' compression. the other defaults were not changed. fired up Bart again and copied ntldr (from XP disk at \i386\ntldr) to the c: drive. note: when doing a 'c: dir' the file doesn't appear in the list. yet, if I try to copy it again, it asks if I want to overwrite the file that's already there. So, what happened? does driveimage not copy the loader file?

Never Re-install Windows Again Part 3: Imaging your hard drive 1 year 6 months ago chinamike

The part I am really not sure on right now is, after I made the copy/move of my files and directories from "My Documents" to my new save partition, the files still remained in the original folder, even though I followed directions here and chose the "Move" button in the "right click" properties menu list of "My Documents". So, am I supposed to delete the files in the original folder now?

Also, I would suggest the tutorial be upgraded for Win 7 and Win 8 users, as the directions are not quite up to snuff in regards to this very subject, "My Documents". In fact, the mention of copying "Documents and Settings" is very misleading, as it is now a virtual directory (or something to that affect) in Win 7 and Win 8--you can't open it! It is now the "Users" directory. You can see where the shortcut "Documents and Settings" points to using the command "dir /aL" (without quotes).

I have a PC that won't fully boot. There is a strong chance that the partition is full, so I want to browse the drive, and choose what to delete, to free up some space.
I just Tried Wary Puppy, and the file manger in there is atrocious. In fact every Linux live Cd that I have tried have horrible File Managers.
Does anyone know of Live CD that has a decent file manager. I hate to acknowledge that MS got something right, but they did with Windows Explorer. So I am looking for a Live CD that has a similar File Manager.

Thank you!

view
Best Free Website Forum Software 1 year 11 months ago chris.p If you don't like SMF then give MyBB a try. Some prefer it to SMF. It may still have some bugs at this time as someone told me it doesn't work with the Safari browser without a code hack - but it works fine on Safari for me. My view is it's a good choice, you need to install SMF and MyBB and see which one works best for you. Because forum code is generally so poor, if you want your site to become popular you will probably want to see which has the best SEO plugins to suit your requirements. For example old SMF versions had very few SEO plugins, so it had problems such as the same metadata on every page. Check out these issues first. view

According to the photos of the ink cartridges on 4inkjets.com, they are LD Cartidges. I think it might be ok to order cartridges from LD on amazon. Most of the reviews are negative though, with a lot of the remanufactured companies. Is it because people freak out over the printer warnings?

I'm surprised to not see inkgrabber.com mentioned here, either in the review or in the comments. We have a Canon MG8120 and have been using inkgrabber inks in it for over a year. They work great, and the cartridges all have chips that the printer recognizes. I've not had a single cartridge fail.

Inkgrabber's inks were evaluated on a website that I saw a couple of years ago as being the best of the generics -- very close to Canon's own proprietary inks, and, of course, much less expensive. Inkgrabber also sells Canon brand ink, but the combo packs of their generic inks are where the real savings can be had.

I have had to take the printhead out and clean it -- twice in over 3 years. Printer inks are water soluble and water is what should be used to clean the printhead -- not alcohol as I have seen recommended here in the comments. There are detailed instructions available on YouTube.

Inkjet Printer Cartridges: Review of Carrot Ink 2 years 2 months ago ychen33

I bought an Xerox Laser toner and it leaks. As a result, the printer is permanently damaged. I have bought other compatible toners elsewhere, and this is the first one that leaks and causes hundreds dollars of damage. I contacted them. They said sorry. But don't expect anything from them. I think they should be removed from ISO certification and wish they go out of business soon.

Inkjet Printer Cartridges: Review of Carrot Ink 1 year 3 months ago Mdercohen

I have been using Carrot Ink generic toner cartridges for several years for my Canon Pixma MX882 printer. I've noticed a distinct DECREASE in quality over my last few shipments.

For instance, on 2 different occasions my printer informed me one of my ink cartridges was empty (one time it was yellow toner and another time it was the big black cartridge that was empty) although I had recently changed both of these toners. However, I was forced to change the toner cartridge because my printer would print blank documents unless I changed this faulty cartridge. When I checked the cartridge after replacing the one that was not working, I could clearly see that there was plenty of toner still inside the faulty cartridge.

This error has occurred twice now and is very annoying and costly. Obviously, this is a quality issue.

When I tried to complain to Carrot Ink using their customer service phone number, I was continually told by an automated message to call back during normal their business hours. However, although I tried several times to call during their "normal central time zone business hours" I would continually get the same automated message telling me to call back during normal business hours. Their message seems to run no matter the time of day! Thus, I was never able to get through to Carrot Ink customer service. What a scam!

I am done with Carrot Ink. Save yourself money and go to a more reputable company for your toner cartridges. Carrot Ink's quality is very poor and their customer service is nonexistent.

IF YOU USE THE GOOGLE CHROME BROWSER DO NOT, I REPEAT: DO NOT INSTALL SPEEDBIT!

Speedbit hijacked my home page and I can't do anything about it because Speedbit also crashes Chrome. I finally threw in the towel and completely unistalled and re-installed Chrome. Speedbit still crashes it! I now face a lengthy ordeal before I can use Chrome again. Speedbit also hijacked Internet Explorer, which is not my default browser, but at least it doesn't crash IE so I could fix it. I'm now using IE until I can figure out how to make Chrome work again.

Unfortunately, everything installed silently, giving me no options. A version that I installed a year ago did not have this "feature". My Registry is absolutely peppered with entries. You can get Chrome to run again if you stop the process "sbu.exe". Interestingly, when Speedbit was running, I couldn't seem to get to sites with descriptions such as "Speedbit removal tool."

If you're a "power user", check out the files that Speedbit installed in C:\Program Files BEFORE you attempt anything. You might find some valuable clues. I also found links to "un-hijack" and "uninstall" that may work (I haven't tried them yet).

Optimizing Bittorrent Clients for Speed 2 years 2 months ago v.v

My previous connection was 256 kbps. and in torrent it used to give down speed of 60 kbps.
However for new connection I am not even getting down speed of 60 kbps.. :(

view
Optimizing Bittorrent Clients for Speed 2 years 2 months ago mr6n8 From the way you listed your results from the speed test, I see you did not follow this guide. Try following the guide to see if that helps. Deleting cookies will do nothing for torrent speed. It could be that your new ISP throttles torrents. What is the name of your ISP? I do not know how you were getting 60kBps down speed with a connection that provided 256kbps as the max speed there should have been 32kBps. The difference being bits (b) and bytes (B). See Bits and Bytes Explained 64kBps would be the max for a 512kbps connection. Your speed test results (in bits) verify that you are getting the correct speed from your ISP for ordinary transfers.

Have loaded about 1/4 of my discs into VVV. It works very well. The default (which can be controlled) is to also index metadata in audio files. So discs with a bunch of music will take much longer to index and may even show as "Not Responding". But all the discs have worked if I let it do its thing. Regular files index very quickly. And the search is fast. This is so much better than what I was using.

A couple of quick Startup tips.
First you use New to create a catalogue. Then you click catalogue (the disc icon) to add a volume to the catalogue. Give it a name - I use a number series so the discs are easily browsed in time sequence. These will then list in Physical view.

To Search, click Search and select Contains first.

All can be exported to CSV.
The only thing it doesn't do I'm used to is index ZIP file contents but thats not a biggy for me.

The main key of course with any of these tools is good labelling. You won't be able to find it easily if you don't name folders and files in searchable terms.

It's a cataloguer.

http://tjelinek.com/main.php?section=dd

The installer can be extracted and run portably (although it will auto-create a data folder in My Docs and profile settings in AppData).

The program itself is packed with all sorts of functions, it will catalogue the contents of archives, add thumbnails for pictures in the catalogue etc, all of which is configurable.

It's not been updated since 2010 but it's very good, I've used it for years although I find VVV a bit more straightforward and faster on the whole.

view
Best Free File or Disk Catalog Organizer 12 months 3 days ago DavidFB

Thanks for the notes.
If you want speed and search functions, I'd turn off things like thumbnails. But if you use photos and images a lot, it would be slower but that may be a function you find very useful.

Depends on needs.

Yes exactly. DEP3 can be slow precisely because it can extract and store so much information about the data that it catalogues.

Best Free Keyboard and Mouse Control Software 1 year 2 weeks ago crombierob

I have one large monitor, and use a vga switcher to display either of my running PCs.
Is it possible to use one of those reviewed programs, to have just one mouse/keyboard yet be able to still only have a single monitor running.
I tried ShareMouse, with little (no) success.
It can sense that I moved the mouse off screen, but then the mouse pointer returns a few seconds later.
If I switch the vga source to the other PC, it does not respond to the mouse/keyboard.
If Sharemouse had a more firm method of controlling which PC has the mouse (EG Ctrl + Win + 2 forced the control over to PC2) then I reckon it could work.
Their support appears to have never thought anyone would want to use a single large monitor.

view
Best Free Keyboard and Mouse Control Software 10 months 5 days ago mmseng

@crombierob,

I think your problem here is that, by using the VGA switcher, you actually only have one of the monitors physically connected at a time.

In your situation, if your monitor has multiple inputs, you would better off running both computers into a separate input of the monitor, bypassing the VGA switch altogether, and switching between the inputs using the monitor's Input/Source toggle button.

This way, both computers always see that they have a monitor connected, and the mouse sharing software doesn't get confused.
