This is a little bat file I made that I use quite a bit on my systems and on customers.

The bat file defrags the C: drive and once it is done then shuts down the system. For some customers I have this scheduled in the windows task scheduler to run at midnight.
They leave their systems on when they leave the office, the system backs up and then at midnight it defrags and shuts down.

Why would you need this? Well besides from the example above here is why I use it. I'm about to head to bed, its late, and so I double click on the bat file, turn off my monitor and go to bed.
My computer will now be defragging and then power off (I turn my system off when I don't use it) So now I don't have to sit and wait for the defrag and it happens while I sleep.

  • CleanMem
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

CleanMem keeps memory use in check on the system without the memory being pushed to the page file. This in turn keeps the system running smoother. Long Version: The people who will notice the biggest performance increase are ones who don't have a lot of memory installed. (More memory is always better!) The reason is when your system starts getting low on memory Windows will start to move memory to the page file. The page file is ran off your hard drive. The hard drive is the bottle neck of performance on a system. So the slower the drive the slower the system goes as it tries to work with the page file. When you use CleanMem you help keep the system from using up all its memory. In turn Windows doesn't push anything to the page file, and we avoid the huge slow down from page file usage. What if you have tons of memory?...

To performance junkies like myself the system restore in Windows just drives me nuts. There are reasons why system restore isn't in server editions of Windows. For starters system restore is backing up to the same hard drive your on, this kills performance and takes more space. The space it takes is a % of your drive, so if you have say a 500gb drive Windows will use up to 50gb of space! yikes. Not to mention if your hard drive dies you lose everything anyway. If you have a proper backup system setup then running system restore is pointless and by turning it off you can get some performance back from windows.

The less Windows has to do the better. Turning off system restore is very easy. But I have also included a vbs script file that you simply run and it will turn it off for you. This is for the admin out there that needs...

Drive Speedometer is a program I made to help monitor the current read and writes speeds of you hard drives. Benefits include: 1. When your system is running slow yet your CPU usage and memory usage are fine, it is normally the hard drive being maxed out. Now you will be able to keep an eye on the hard drive performance. 2. When a drive is slowly dying it will run slower and slower. Being aware of what your normal drive speeds are and seeing those speed drop over time is a great indicator it is time to replace the drive. 3. Being a performance nut myself I like knowing what my system is doing. When I have a program doing some work and appears to be hung up I can see if it is still reading or writing to the drive. This way I know the program isn't hung up and is still working.

For some, including myself, don't care about how pretty things are in Windows. And a lot of times the visual effects aren't even noticeable in the first place.
But they can pack a punch to performance when you have a lot of windows and programs open. By turning off a lot of these settings Windows has less work to do, thus making Windows more responsive since it isn't trying to pretty everything up for you.

Again a lot of these settings you wont even notice are gone, unless you drool when a combo box slides out. These settings work for both XP and Vista.

Now I have included 2 ways to do this, first one is the manual way. The 2nd way is a program I wrote, this program will be perfect for people who need to apply these settings to a lot of computers or want to do it in a automated way. The settings are stored in...

Simple Ping is a small program to help keep an eye on your current internet ping. Its very useful in game sessions. It also can be used to track internet communication across different websites. A few examples of people who would find this program helpful : Example #1: I have a dual monitor setup. While playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 the game never shows me what my ping is. It just shows a little bar. So when my ping is bad i have no way to tell just how bad it is. So now I have Simple Ping running on my 2nd monitor. Now as I play I can keep an eye on my ping at all times. Example #2: While playing on the net with your Wii, PS3 or Xbox you may need to keep an eye on your ping.

All you need to do is view every page in your router. Including clicking the add buttons (if any) on the port forwarding and port triggering pages.

After each page is done loading the program will take a screenshot and capture the html code. Once your all done the program will let you upload the files to me. A typical router takes about 3 - 7 min to capture (30+ screens normally)

This information is then used to add a screenshots page and "How To" guides on my website. Showing you how to do many things such as port forwarding, port triggering, and configuring your wireless. The html code is used to add your router to my Simple Port Forwarding program, allowing you to forward ports easier than ever.

Simple Internet Meter is new bandwidth monitor. After my program CS Fire Monitor came out years ago I had many requests for added features. Many of those features where not possible to add using the Windows API. Such as seeing what is internet traffic and what is local network traffic. The only way to accomplish this is to look at the packet data. So I made this program using WinPcap and PacketX.dll. As many of the users know from my other work I am a performance nut. I try to have my programs run fast and clean all the while taking as little out of the system as possible. I put extra effort into Simple Internet Meter to make sure it does its job without affecting the system in anyway. The program will auto clean its used memory any time the memory usage goes above 10 mb. The program is designed to run 24/7. A great feature I...

Simple Static IP is a free program by PcWinTech.com to help users set their IP address to static with just a few clicks. At times there may be a reason you need to have your IP address set to static. A static IP is an IP address that never changes. By default peoples IP is dynamic which means it can change at any time. When port forwarding you forward to your local IP address, and if your IP changes your port forwarding will no longer work as it is not pointing to your new IP. This is the same for nearly all settings in a router that points to your computer, such as DMZ and logging. So to keep that from happening you need to set your IP to static so it never changes, then you no longer have to worry about your IP changing. (This should be done for computers behind a router) The process to set your IP can be intimidating if you have...

Simple Webpage Capture allows you to take a perfect picture of large WebPages.

You simply resize the built in browser window to the width you want and the program will auto scroll the length of the page making one perfect picture of the page. The program doesn't scroll the width as fluid web pages make it impossible to set the proper width, so the user can set the width to anything they like as long as it fits on the...

For many of you, you may have noticed how much slower networking seems to be in vista.
Well your not the only ones. I have a gigabit network and was only getting 8mb/s transfers
and when I played any audio (I listen to music when I work) it would lower down to 1 - 2mb/s.

After doing some research it turns out Microsoft purposely lowers your network by up to 95%.
Their reason is so your audio or video doesn't skip. You can read up on it more by google'ing it.
http://blogs.technet.com/markrussinovich/archive/2007/08/27/1833290.aspx
You can only imagine peoples reactions to this of course.

Well I have done a lot of research and have found a solution to get your network running like it should.
My gigabit network is running at full speed (and guess what, my music doesn't skip :-P)

This is a power setting I made for vista for my customers. I have everything maxed out when running plugged in and everything running on lowest settings when running on battery. This will work for both laptops and desktops with or without battery backups hooked up.

This also changes the button on the start menu to shutdown the computer not put it into sleep.
If your not going to use your computer for a long period turn the dang thing off! save your power bill and the earth damn it :-P

I have made it easy to install. download the zip, extract it and run the install_power.bat file, it will install and set the new power settings. Enjoy!
