Glary utilities and JV16 Power tools, have never been mentioned by Max
PC to my knowledge and they are the two most powerful all in on PC
cleaner-upper, start up control, reg cleaner, absolute
uninstaller...that I've ever seen.  Add CCleaner (which is mentioned) an you dont really need any other programs of this ilk.

Especially JV16 Power Tools......when you PROPERLY uninstall any Google or Yahoo app....and I do mean properly....there are 1000's (if not more) registry entries left...and they aren't quiet entries either.

JV16 Power Tools, not only finds them, but removes and prevents their return.

Glary Utilities is freeware and potent,  JV16 Power Tools, isn't free, unless you get the last free version.

 

The last free version (XP only) can be found here:  http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/index.html

 

The newest (XP or Vista) Vista interface-like version can be found here:  http://www.macecraft.com/

 

I recommend every one use all three programs for complete PC happiness.  I've used them for years with nary a complaint.  The free JV16 will not work on Vista though.  But for that I blame MS  :)

There's a few other free things I would mention that MaxPC never has, they're not all "programs" but they're all useful.

Browser Call and Autorun - makes autorun files for cd's that will execute any html page, executable or indeed any file type you need on CD insertion.

 

 HFSExplorer can allow you to access mac drives and extract files to your PC.

 

 FreeUndelete - you can guess what this does.

 

 Printkey2000 - Try as you like, this free release from years ago is still the best screen capture utility.

 

I'm sure I have more somewhere.

There's a program that I'm pretty sure has been featured in MPC long ago but I cannot for the life of me remember what it is called. It was a Windows Explorer type utility that showed a graphical layout in colored blocks of the files/folders contained on your PC. The larger the file the bigger the block. It was incredibly useful in terms of figuring out what was taking up the most space on your HDD in order to do some house keeping. I'd love to get my hands on a copy of it again.

 It's called Sequoia view. It's still very useful, but hasn't seen much in the way of updates.

Also Space Monger does this.

I use this before I game. You can edit it to keep anything you like open, and when you're done you can enable everything without a shut down (I do that anyway just because I'm like that)

Oh and it's a freebie

  • Does Process Lasso a better replacement for the Task Manager in XP? If not, what do you guys recommend as a better alternative to the Task Manager, or at least a way to make it look prettier sitting in the system tray?
  • Also, I couldn't get ShellExView to list all the shell extension, like "Open with Adobe Reader" or "Add to Windows Media Player list". Any clue, Murphy?

 Those aren't shell extensions, they're file types. You can edit them in the Folder Options dialog box under the File Types tab.
