A Really Small App 2.0    1.3Mb   (1-Feb-2010)
A fun and free Really Small App showing Running Tasks, Current Startups, CPU and Memory utilization graphs, the number of running processes, and the number of connections to your PC from remote computers (e.g. Trojan viruses, Spyware).  It is also a great default printer changer utility accessible directly from the System Tray with one click of the mouse.
ATW-NETSTAT  v1.2    48K   (20-December-2006)
One for the techies, or the plain curious.  Windows XP/2003 have a DOS command called NETSTAT which displays all the TCP/IP connections on your PC.  We have extended this command by matching up the output of the command with the programs which are actually running on your PC.  The results are presented in an easy-to-read fashion, and, for future reference, you can also save those results to a file which has an automatically generated filename which includes the date and time for easy sorting.  Type ATW-NETSTAT /HELP for more details.  Free.

Ad-Aware Free Internet Security    127Mb   (18-November-2010)
For Windows XP/Vista/Widnows 7.  You should run either this program or Spybot Search & Destroy further down on this page.  Many software packages come with embedded third party software which sends information about your Internet behaviour from your PC to specific companies!!  This is called spyware.  In other cases the embedded software pulls advertisements from a specific ad server whenever you are connected to the Internet and displays them to you.  This is called adware and has the highest annoyance level possible !  Software manufacturers use adware so they can let you use their software free of charge while they get their revenue from advertisers.  Unfortunately, even when you de-install the original "carrier" software, the spyware or adware often still remains on your PC, sending information out every time you connect to the Internet.  The potential for this type of software is enormous as it can easily be turned into something that sends information that is stored on your PC!!  The problem is such that antivirus manufacturers are starting to produce commercial products to address it.  And it gets worse, time and time again this type of software is found to be the cause of Internet browser crashes, PC freezes, illegal operations, etc...  Run either Ad-Aware SE or SpyBot Search & Destroy (use one or the other, not both) to see if your PC has such software running, and then rid yourself of it!  Note :  if you have Ad-Aware 5.x or 6.x, fully uninstall it before installing Ad-Aware Free Internet Security.

NetSwitcher 3.82    3.4Mb   (20-November-2010)
Ever had to change your network settings every time you sit down at a client's site, or fumble with your IP address configuration, network shares, printer captures, e-mail clients, and network protocols and clients every time you plug into your home network, your office network, or a client's network ?  If Yes then NetSwitcher is the tool for you.  Dead easy to use :  simply set up various configuration profiles, and then use the relevant profile for your current location.  You're at home, click on the Home Profile to activate it; you're at work, click on the Work profile to activate it; you're at a regular client, just activate that profile, and so on.  A breeze.  $14 to purchase when this full-featured demo expires.  Windows XP/Vista/Win7.

SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.6.2.46    16Mb   (20-November-2010)
For Windows XP/Vista/Win7.  You must run this essential piece of software from Patrick M. Kolla of Germany (interesting how the best adware/spyware removal programs all come from Germany).  Many software packages come with embedded third party software which sends information about your Internet behaviour from your PC to specific companies!!  This is called spyware.  In other cases the embedded software pulls advertisements from a specific ad server whenever you are connected to the Internet and displays them to you.  This is called adware and has the highest annoyance level possible !  Software manufacturers use adware so they can let you use their software free of charge while they get their revenue from advertisers.  Unfortunately, even when you de-install the original "carrier" software, the spyware or adware often still remains on your PC, sending information out every time you connect to the Internet.  The potential for this type of software is enormous as it can easily be turned into something that sends information that is stored on your PC!!  The problem is such that antivirus manufacturers are starting to produce commercial products to address it.  And it gets worse, time and time again this type of software is found to be the cause of Internet browser crashes, PC freezes, illegal operations, etc...  Run Patrick Kolla's SpyBot Search & Destroy to see if your PC has such software running, and then rid yourself of it!  SpyBot Search & Destroy is FREE.
