Pazera Free Audio Extractor screenshot

Pazera Free Audio ExtractorPazera Free Audio Extractor

Simple converting4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
Pazera Free Audio Extractor is a versatile and user friendly program. The GUI is easy to understand and converting a file is as easy as adding a file, choosing a preset and then press convert. It uses the FFMPEG encoders and decoders. It can convert video and audio files to MP3, M4A, AAC, AC3, WMA, OGG and FLAC. No converting to other formats such as APE, TTA, TAK or Shorten. For each encoder(accept for FLAC) you have plenty of presets to choose from. If you are handy at adding more command-line settings you can do that by selecting "Additional Settings" at the bottom. I would be great if you could add additional encoders and decoders to make up for the missing formats. If that was possible it could be your one stop program for converting audio files. If you are looking for an easy to use program with a variety of formats to choose from then this is a great choice. Very good for beginners and experienced users.

Imported my text list of movie titles!4 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 3 reviews)
I've tried a few different movie catalog programs and settled on this one because only it could import my long text list of movie titles, then automagically run them through IMDB and generate an AMC Catalog including all the info one could want. After that I could just add one at a time as other programs are also able to do. Also, the developer was very responsive to my email requests for Help at the time.

Free Download ManagerFree Download Manager

The people's choice5 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
Well Snapfiles' description really describes it all about Free Download Manager(FDM). I've been using FDM since I used XP. When I had Vista I tried many other downloaders, but ended up sticking with FDM. On Windows 7 64x I tried Internet Download Accelerator(IDA) which is excellent(read my review), but I ended up switching to FDM again. Why do I keep coming back? I'm not sure, but it's like breaking up with an ex and getting back together again because you're infatuated with that person. Maybe I hate the nag screens to buy the premium versionscough...IDA, the pop-up ads(Download Accelerator Plus) or the shadiness(I'm looking at you FlashGet and Orbit Downloader!) of other downloaders. Maybe I like that it's open-source and genuinely free. Maybe I like that you can make your own toolbar skins(if you have the skills or patience). Maybe I like it because it supports Torrent files. Maybe I like it because it has been around longer than most other downloaders(EagleGet, DownloadNinja... you're still babies) and the code has been tweaked to refinement. Whatever the reason to why I keep coming back, I think FDM is here to stay from now on.

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit screenshot

Malwarebytes Anti-ExploitMalwarebytes Anti-Exploit

Free extra layer of protection4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
If you use SpywareBlaster then you could understand that Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit(MBAE) works in a similar way. Basically it will protect you from being exploited by malicious codes which will prompt you to download and install malware or spyware, with or without the user knowing it. What MBAE does is stop the malicious code from executing. Once it does it will notify the user that an attack was attempted. Personally I've not tested it on infected sites... The free version only protects browsers(practically any of them) and some other options are disabled(available for premium only). If you want more options and protection for other applications then you have to buy the premium version, but the free version is enough for most home users. The free version is suppose to automatically install new versions, but it doesn't work for me. I always have to manually download the new version and install it. I feel that Malwarebytes has a good reputation, so it is nice to just have it just in case. Anyway what do you have to lose? It's free. And being that it is free and can give you an extra layer of protection is much appreciated.

DropboxDropbox

Good tool to keep data in sync5 starsby DarrinSingleton (Read all my 5 reviews)
I have to work on Linux and Windows-powered computers. I need to sync data between them, and Dropbox handles that quickly. For those reluctant to keep sensitive data on Dropbox: I use encrypted filesystem, encfs, which is actually synced via Dropbox. That gives me the feeling of better safety and some insurance that my data will still be more or less protected from third party eyes if human error happens and my storage can be accessed by someone else. Its mobile versions aren't that smart, however, especially Android one. Managing files with them can be a nuisance. However, even its free plan gives me enough disk space to keep my development and mail archives in sync. I should also admit the developers take security seriously and react quickly to whatever problem the program and its service had.

I like its stability4 starsby DarrinSingleton (Read all my 5 reviews)
Primary reason why I use this monitoring program is stability. I can leave it without checking for weeks and find it still working, without anything to take immediate care of. Except for alerts, of course, when it informs me of something wrong with my network. I haven't yet tested the latest version yet, since I do not upgrade a program just because there's an update. My experience taught me to upgrade when there's extremely serious reason to, such as security or stability issues. Note that it also has a freeware version, so you can test it without much problems. Apart from some monitors type not present in program, I had just few problems with it. Also, it goes pretty well with all the security software I use (doesn't generate false security alerts).

Still is worth its price3 starsby DarrinSingleton (Read all my 5 reviews)
I use Spybot for years; the recent changes in program are not encouraging. The program nags too often; it can open its warning screen while computer is locked and consume pretty much resources with it, for reason unknown to me. Currently, all the important actions are manual; interface became too complicated, memory footprint has become very much. Yet still its efficiency as scanner is good, I just do not allow it to stay running in background, to save resources and nerves, it's appeals to pay are just irritating. However, it was once extremely good piece of freeware, so I still recommend it. Just use something else with it, for fuller safety.

Saves time required to keep computer tidy5 starsby DarrinSingleton (Read all my 5 reviews)
My program of choice for many years. When used together with Eraser, allows keeping computer free of excessive clutter. Default settings of Windows do not really prevent it from getting overburdened with temporary files and the like. For a free piece of software it's amazingly efficient and compact. From my viewpoint it's just too powerful, so pat attention when you confirm cleanup and/or program deletion - to avoid irreversible actions. Good tool.

Simple and efficient cleanup tool5 starsby DarrinSingleton (Read all my 5 reviews)
Eraser definitely does what it promises to: efficient and safe cleanup. For the absolute majority of cases, it is sufficient. For better safety (or less paranoia), I would advise to a) erase your temporary files folder on shutdown with Eraser, and b) use encrypted filesystem such as encfs to even more reduce chances to recover whatever sensitive data you could have on disk.

UltraDefragUltraDefrag

Good & safe, but repeat defragging needed3 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
UltraDefrag has the following features: defrag, quick optimization, full optimization, individual file & folder defrag, scheduling, boot time defrag, command-line, full list report and file & folder exclusion. See their website for a very nice detailed explanation. Also it is fully compatible with 64bit OS. The GUI is simple enough for beginners. It has one-click buttons to start the several most used functions. But, clicking on the "Options" icon will bring up a .lua file to adjust settings which is mostly about filtering and GUI. This may bewilder beginners even though there are explanations written. A menu to add files & folders and check boxes would be much easier. UltraDefrag has a different approach to defrag files than others; it defrags only the necessary files(see website for details). Therefore if you want all files defragmented you'll need to defrag again. In my experience I used the "Full Optimization", but it left many defragmented files. Running a Defrag, Quick Optimization or defrag the files or folders individually will fix this. I also did a Boot Time defrag. Unfortunately the MFT files were not defragmented(I had to use Contig). I tried the "MFT Optimization" option which places movable MFT files closest to the unmovable ones. For my computer, it didn't seem to do anything. Overall UltraDefrag seems to be a good and safe defragger. The one click icons are easy to use, but other settings may be hard for beginners to set-up.

Defrags great, but not quite user friendly3 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
The features of Puran Defrag include VSS & 64x compatibility, consolidation, optimization, auto-defrag, boot time defrag, quiet defrag, individual file & folder defrag, command-line, disk check, file & folder exclusion and scheduling. Also it has a feature called Puran Intelligent Optimizer(PIOZR) which claims to speed up your computer's performance by placing the most used files & folders at the beginning of the HD. The GUI is very simple, but maybe too simple. It has no toolbar with icons, but a Microsoft ribbon-type menu. The menu set-up is OK for experienced users, but maybe a bit too difficult for beginners because you need to know what to select in the option menu to set-up different defrag methods. Therefore several one-click buttons to select from a toolbar would be very helpful. It does a very good defrag job. After defragging I had no fragmented files and my restore point files were OK. I saw no difference in my computer's performance when I used PIOZR, but this may vary for each computer's situation. I also used the disk check & boot time defrag. A nice feature, but I was disappointed that it didn't defrag my MFT files(I had to use Contig for that). After analyzing you get a stat report & a limited list of the top 10 fragmented files. Except for some weak points, Puran Defrag has good features and performs very well, so it deserves a try. Hopefully the developers will make improvements in the next update(it has been 2-years since the last one)

Great registry cleaner5 starsby labman24620
I have been using Wise Registry Cleaner, but this Eusing outdoes it all the way around. First time run, found 272 invalid entries in my registry. I clicked on Repair all. It also saved a copy of my registry before cleaning. The next time I ran it, the next day, it only found 5 entries. It also told me that some might not be able to be removed due to the computer not allowing some to be deleted, or might be in use by some other program. I really like this cleaner.....it's a keeper.

This tool is very handy when you need to refer to an image frequently. It's very easy to use. I do have an issue and I just cant find the image after snipping. It's supposed to be stored in Pictures Folder but when I look for it it's not there. I have sent a request to the developer to see what is wrong or if I'm doing something incorrect. I hope I get an answer because this tool will be very handy to have.

Just bad when it comes to printing1 starsby Hollinski
It just doesnt print all the things of a PDF you see on the screen. Other PDF-Apps doesnt have this problem, it seems like a big bug to me. You can change printing options like "Print Document and Markups" or "Print Notes and Popups" but there are still some things missing after printing the document on paper which is absolutely unacceptable.

ReNamer LiteReNamer Lite

Lite restrictive Pro too 1 starsby morganfj978 (Read all my 2 reviews)
PROS: Re-Namer is a nice small program that has 14 renaming commands which allow fairly easy renaming for simple jobs. Most of the commands are easy to make and works well. You can also add more than one item to a Command line.. thus when you delete something like "BlueRay" from a file name you can also add dozens of more items "DVD", "R5", "Stupid Name" etc. Also many commands add items lile DELETE offers options for period, comma, brackets, underline, etc., CONS: Not all commands are easy and no really good instructions or examples are given.. forget this guy helping you even if you buy! The LITE version only gives you 5 Command Lines.. that means 9 of the Commands are virtually useless if you need them unless you upgrade. Upgrade is EXPENSIVE.. consider this is a fairly easy program in terms of programming with dozens of good free programs on the open source market.... To upgrade to the PRO version it will cost 17.99... Simply A FOOLS Price! GENERAL: If you need true versatility without restrictions at a good price or free... MOVE ON!!!! If you need a quick easy program to set up to rename a certain type of file you use daily... i.e. If you download from Torrents! then you can set this up with a PRESET

KeePass Password SafeKeePass Password Safe

Best used with encrypted file systems5 starsby MichealGilbert (Read all my 3 reviews)
I should note this password manager is cross-platform. To me, that's a must. That's convenient, I am not bound to single OS type and don't have to sync many password managers. From my practice, I recommend keeping its database file and key(s) on different (and preferably encrypted) file systems. That will give extra amount of security. Program has good enough paranoid settings to avoid leaking passwords just by silly mistake. Just don't forget to keep backups of your password database and keys. It's interface to browsers isn't always very convenient, but well, it's free software anyway.

Good heir of truecrypt5 starsby MichealGilbert (Read all my 3 reviews)
Those having used Truecrypt should try this piece of software. It's based upon Truecrypt code, looks like it and works similarly. I have noticed relatively long pause when mounting devices; if the storage with encrypted volume is slow, the delay can be quite unpleasant. However, I found it works at least as quickly as its predecessor and has lesser security issues. My only advice is to avoid using the same Truecrypt volume with Veracrypt. Instead, create new volume and copy data to it, due to known security problems. So far, my experience with Veracrypt is very good. I only had hard time decrypting my operating system to re-encrypt it with Veracrypt, system seemed to slow down considerably when being encrypted. Apart from that, good tool.

Allows mostly unattended use4 starsby MichealGilbert (Read all my 3 reviews)
Our specifics require monitoring a lot of Web apps. I have tried several monitoring tools, none of them do what we need out of the box, so some scripting is always required. IPHost is good in terms of cost-performance. I occasionally contacted its support, so can't rate it. Software wasn't hard to understand anyway. Currently it mostly runs unattended, requires little or no maintenance. Only when we had OS crashes, there were minor problems with most software installed, including this one. I would rate it higher if it had interface in my native language. Perhaps it will. Apart from that, it works well.

Blessing for free5 starsby bassaniobroke (Read all my 5 reviews)
I recommend this because it is also a PDF printer so I may print the online receipts etc as PDF and later get it printed at print shop, in this way I don't need to have printer at home which is a very costly affair. It also allows to annotate and comment on the PDF file in various ways,allows to insert text on file as well. The loveliest part is it allows to highlight any area you like to, hence you may also highlight images and not text stuff, the opening speed is also fine. No other problems encountered such as infiltrating the computer with viruses worms etc. Thanks to company for keeping it free, God bless you.

Good for 32bit, not for 64bit3 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
This is my 2nd review after using it for Win7 64bit. I've used this for 32bit OS and it worked very well. It utilizes the Windows API for moving files while defragmenting which is why it is slower than other defragmenters. The options(scripts) are easy to use. You can defrag, optimize and weekly to monthly defrags. To get more options you will have to use the command-line version or create scripts for it. Recently I used MyDefrag 64bit version on 64bit OS and noticed that my restore points were severely defragmented, up to 16,000+ fragments! Also many other files where not defragmented, but even more defragmented. In the end I had less HD space. I checked my restore points and they where all gone except for the last one. MyDefrag and some other defragmenters used on 64bit will break up restore point files causing them to be not deleted, but unrecognized and unusable on Windows. Also MyDefrag ceased development, so there will be no fix for this issue. MyDefrag is great on 32bit systems. It runs well, easy to use and safe to use. But, because of the issue it has on 64bit OS I cannot recommend it for 64bit systems. For 64bit systems it is best to use another defragmenter that will actively release updates to resolve bugs and will not destroy restore points.

DropItDropIt

Simple file organizer5 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
DropIt is an easy to use file organizer. Just select options, create your folders and assign the files to go to those folders...and that's it. If the folders don't exist, DropIt will create them for you. Then just drag and drop a group of files on the target and it will move the files to the assigned folders. It's fast! There are other options such as encryption & compression, backup & restore, folder monitoring, ignore or skip certain files and much more. See their website for the list of options. Also it's portable. I cannot think of anything that would improve this application. I think it has everything it needs. It is really fast. So fast that I wonder if it is safe to use. The Windows OS API way of moving files is to copy the files first then delete the original when done. This is a safe method and takes a bit of time which is why the process is slow. But, DropIt does not seem to use this method. If a file or files become corrupt while moving them with DropIt, you may be out of luck. So I'd be careful with using it with really important files. Overall it is a really nice organizing application that does its job very well. So if you have a file full of various files this could help you.

7-Zip7-Zip

Simple to use basic archiver3 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
7-zip is very light, fast, easy to use and has a simple GUI and 64bit support. All basic features are here for the casual user. Here are the formats listed on their website: "High compression ratio in 7z format with LZMA and LZMA2 compression Supported formats: Packing & Unpacking: 7z, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP and WIM. Unpacking Only: ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, CramFS, DEB, DMG, FAT, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MBR, MSI, NSIS, NTFS, RAR, RPM, SquashFS, UDF, VHD, WIM, XAR and Z." Also included are an AES-256 Zip & 7-zip encrypter, 7-zip self extractor, Windows shell integration, File manager, command-line version & FAR manager plugin." So far 9.20 has been the last stable version since 2010. A stable release has not had any new features or improvements for years. A new 15.05 beta version with improvements is available, so what is happening? Why are all these betas released with no stable one? Also the 8-bit GUI is just ugly these days. Some new icons with more options for the toolbar would be appreciated. It is a really good archiver if you only need it for simple packing & unpacking archives and not much more, but if you are looking for more features you will be better off using another archiver that can do the same as 7-zip and more such as PeaZip, Bandizip or ZipGenius. If you insist on using 7-zip then you are better off using the 15.05 beta version with fixes, but a stable version would be much preferred.

The menu utility has a lot of nice features and after the install the program has a tutorial to boot to show you how to use it. You don't see that very often at all, nice job. The setup of the menus is fast and allow various options: File, Folder, Folder Menu, Folder Switch, System Shortcut, Email, URL, and Special. To add to this it allows Explorer integration so it will add items to your QuickCliq menu or sub-menu by using the Right-Click quick add option.

The peas are ripe4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 57 reviews)
Since 7-zip has not been updated recently(last stable:2010), I wanted to change to a new zip/compress tool. PeaZip is probably the only open-source alternative to 7-zip that is worth using. It claims to support opening 150+ extensions and can compress to all the common type archives, mainly 7-zip, ZIP, ARC, TAR, ISO, but of course not RAR. It also has a variety of tools; splitjoin, secure password, scheduler, ChecksumHash check, CRC check, convert archive, secure delete and more. The layout is easy to understand and can be changed. The toolbar looks nice with buttons for the common functions. The toolbar can also be changed. The only downside of PeaZip are that some other tools are missing such as email, uploading and repair archive. I also notice that PeaZip is a bit slow when opening up an archive, about 1-2 seconds slower than 7-zip, but this is just being picky. Overall PeaZip is enough for the common user who just wants to compress and extract archives, and may have more than enough tools for them. The other advance users who are looking for the tools not offered by PeaZip may have to buy a Pro Zip software. But, I think PeaZip is not meant to be a Pro Archiver, but one for beginners and intermediate users. It is a great upgrade from 7-zip for those who want a change.
