I have found a new tool that helps people quickly review many websites. In addition it helps prevent you from going to sites with spyware, adware, viruses, or even just poor content. The tool is the ReviewToolbar which allows users to rate sites, so that legitimate sites with good content are easily distinguishable from malicious or poorly designed sites. The program embeds site ratings directly in the search results of the web's most popular search engines. The best thing is that like all good tools, it is free. It is available for free at http://www.reviewtoolbar.com

There was a HUGE craze about this a few years ago, people selling products for insane amounts of money to stop Messenger spam, when all you have to do (and all these programs ever did) is type "services.msc" into Run and kill the Messenger service.

The latest updates for XP and 2000 even do it for you.

there was a program that won a maximum pc softy award, and i cant seem to remember what it was called. I just moved and havnt unpacked my old issues yet or i would look it up myself.

the program took the entire contents of your hard drive and displayed it as a picture with each folder and file taking up an appropirate amount of space relative to the entire disk.

Can anybody remember what the name of it is?

I'm almost certain it was a sourceforge.net project.

many thanks
