tnx for link
I agree with Photon on the matter of Symantic's antivirus (when I use Windows, which is rare). Use avg for antivirus, it doesnt have as big an impact on the system.

Hi Matt,
I personally use Symantec Anti-Virus Coprorate Edition and I can't say enough good things about it. It's not the cheapest software around....but you tend to get what you pay for....and this software IS GOOD.

Well it s nice to have a link to another site Smile but I would rather make a list directly here in the forum.

language it is written in? The Lextek Language Identifier is capable of

VoIPerized 2.2

VoIPerized is a so called VoIP (Voice over IP) program.
VoIPerized enables you to make free audio calls to other people who also
run VoIPerized. When making VoIPerized the focus was to minimize the
latency, because other VoIP programs always seemed to have an irritating
lag which makes that conversations seem unnatural.
By using the open source Speex audio codec the audio quality is far
higher than any normal telephone call.
Features of VoIPerized: Extreme low latency (0.150 seconds + ping time) Adjust the bitrate to your needs High audio quality (16 kHz sampling) Low CPU usage Adaptive Jitter Buffering VAD (Voice Audio Detection) Easy to use interface Remembers the last 5 persons called Missed phonecalls are logged Option to Auto-accept calls Displays your own IP-address (even when behind a router) UPnP™ (Universal Plug & Play) support. VoIPerized automatically does the needed port forwarding (WinXP & UPnP router required).
What's New in This Release: Fixed bug that caused incorrect IP-address detection when having
multiple ethernet cards, Added link to manual page in Help menu, Added Push to Talk button mode, Added Push to Talk using key combination, Added support for multiple languages by means of extra language files
(contact me if you want to translate VoIPerized), Added configuration wizard, Display name is set to username used in windows when you for the first
time start VoIPerized, The latency has been further reduced and is now approximately 110~120ms
+ Ping time, Included a better echocanceller based on the NLMS-pw algorithm.

special features. It shows, prints and converts images with the highest
possible quality.
Special features: loading-time interpolation makes any picture appear

colors possible, gamma correction allows you to light-up dark images or
darken too bright ones while viewing them. Plus numerous viewing options,
panoramic scrolling, support for Exif tags, the lossless JPEG convertor,
the GIF animation compiler, the icon/cursor compiler, the interactive
lens tool.
The batch convertor tool allows you to choose destination palette, color

conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup
copy of any DVD video disk.
DVD Shrink will also burn your backup DVD, if you have installed the

Foxit PDF Reader v1.3 build 519 Beta
Foxit Reader is the only eligible alternative reader/viewer for PDF files

MUST agree all terms in this agreement in order to use Foxit PDF Reader legally. You don't need to go throught lengthy installation process to start using

files. If you want to switch default PDF reader back to your previous reader,
please run the other reader (e.g. Adobe Reader) you have, and set it as the default

NT/XP Registry Optimiser

Similar to Windows 9x/Me, the registry files in an NT-based system can become fragmented over time, occupying more space on your hard disk than necessary and decreasing overall performance. You should use the NTREGOPT utility regularly, but especially after installing or uninstalling a program, to minimize the size of the registry files and optimize registry access.
The program works by recreating each registry hive "from scratch", thus removing any slack space that may be left from previously modified or deleted keys.

DYP2P 1.0.5 (Make your own P2P software)
DIYP2P is a FREE platform for creating your own P2P program. Anyone who
knows HTML can create a file sharing program connected to the popular
G1/G2 networks. Since DIYP2P is using GnucDNA as the network core, your
application will have all the features of a solid P2P program, already
packed with files and sharing users. Basically you can think of DIYP2P as
an Open Source platform where you don't need to be a programmer to use
it. All you need to do is to think of a Cool Name, Killer Logo and a Slick
User Interface Paranoia is a mental state, but in this case it's DIYP2P demo
application. Paranoia is a fully functional P2P program, using DIYP2P as
its platform. You can use paranoia as your starting point for creating
your own P2P program.

CoolWebShredder 2.15
CWShredder finds and destroys traces of CoolWebSearch. CoolWebSearch is a
name given to a wide range of different browser hijackers. Though the
code is very different between variants, they are all used to redirect
users to and other sites affiliated with its operators.
The CoolWebSearch Trojan installs dozens of bookmarks, mostly to porn
sites on your desktop; it also adds a toolbar to Internet Explorer and
changes your home page without asking. Furthermore, it significantly
slows down the performance of your PC, and introduces some modifications
which cause Windows to freeze, crash or randomly reboot.

Folder2Iso v1.0
About : Folder2Iso just creates an iso from any kind of folder (with the
subfolders). Its a GUI of mkisofs. No need of installation , really small exe. Some of you can say : "What is the point of this tool? Seems useless." Well dvddecrypter can burn cd/dvd for free so if you make an iso easily
you can burn your movies on cds/dvd for free. It is also usefull for the
dvd2avi guide ... So : dvddecrypter + Folder2Iso combine an totaly freeware burning kit for all kinds of avi/ogm/mkv
