If your hard drive is fragmented, the chances are it could be causing slow system performance or other Windows errors. Usually, one of the main reasons why your system slow downs is because of disk fragmentation, and there’s not much most users can do about it manually to resolve it, or prevent it. However, luckily enough there are applications available that will look through your hard drive, detect fragmentation, and remove it in order to optimize your disk, in turn speeding up performance and limiting computer errors.

It is more and more common for computer users to have many different memory sticks, external drives, internal hard drives and partitions, each containing different information. Some of this information is no doubt sensitive to the owner, and therefore they may want to take steps to help ensure its security. An easier way than encryption is to just deny access to the disk or partition itself, which is where Easy Disk Drive Safeguard comes into play.

Computer are absolutely everywhere now – many more places than just in your home. Computer can be found in cafés, libraries, and many more locations. However, these computer are shared between many different members of the public, so it is important for the administrators to help make sure the systems are not used for unauthorised reasons, such as to modify settings or intentionally break into the system. Advanced Internet Kiosk is an application that will let you turn a normal computer into a dedicated Internet Kiosk PC, limiting members of the public to only use the system for its designed purpose, whilst giving the administrators the full control they need.

Sometimes, you had no choice but to leave your computer unattended or out of your view. Maybe this is at home, in the office, or in a public place. Even though I’m sure no one would ever recommend leaving your computer in a public place unattended, if you have to leave it, it’s better to leave it secure so that no one can access it whilst you are gone, without your permission. This can help protect your sensitive files and data whilst your back is turned, from theft or unauthorised modification.

Super Mario flash bros is a flash port of the game super smash bros melee for the Nintendo Game cube, one of the most popular games for that system, as well as being an exclusive title making it unsurprising that it has made its way onto PC, and in flash form at that. Although there are a few differences that you'll notice immediately between the original game and this flash version, most noticeably the graphics are a little toned down, something that makes sense as it is just a 8 megabyte file, compressed down from a 1.

Bloons (world play on balloons) is a freeware action and puzzle game which has the very simple and satisfying concept of playing a monkey popping balloons. Off course the game is not entirely that basic, but it retains all satisfaction. The skill in the game that makes it a cross between action and puzzle is the mechanic of shooting the pin to pop the balloons, which requires a planned trajectory, and you have to pop a certain number of balloons with limited number of darts.

Ice Jam is a Christmas or winter themed “connect three” freeware game, the premise being connect three ice blocks to get rid of them, and you have to clear the stage to make room for Santa’s sleigh to get past. This doesn’t relate much to the gameplay, which is mainly just icy bejeweled. It is however, a festive game, which makes it a great game for when you need to waste time but want to feel like you’re getting yourself in the mood for the Christmas season.

In Equisitor you are the one hero who can save the land, which is slowly being taken over, however first you need to get experience, by doing various quests and fighting monsters around the castle. Every single task you do affects the world and rewards you experience, so choosing the correct quests is vital for progression.

Gone are the days of large media players which were bulky and required CDs and Cassettes. With the advent of iPod and other similar portable media players, the market of those bulky players is on the decline. Portable media players are the products which are popular among youth and are easy to carry as they easily fit in your pocket. However, they have limited storage which can easily become full, especially if you have large music collection. One solution is to delete the music which you no longer listen and other is to resize the size of each track so that space for more tracks can be vacated.

No matter how new or old your computer is, you will never be immune from those annoying slowdowns! The sad fact is, a month into using your brand new system, it may start to feel just as slow as the old one. There is one major question that springs to mind when I see people with this kind of scenario – what’s running in the background? The majority of the time, a lot of people do not even realise how many applications automatically open themselves as you log on, and continue to run throughout the time you’re using your system.

It doesn’t matter how new or how old your computer or laptop may be, no doubt you will experience a slow down at some point. There is always the possibility that this could be put down to malicious software infecting your system, such as viruses or spyware, but for those with effective anti-virus software installed, it’s more than likely that applications running at start up without permission is causing a slowdown. Most people aren’t even aware of how many applications automatically open when you log in, and disabling these is a great way in order to boost system performance.

With the new release of Windows, change is inevitable. And change is certainly what we got! However not everyone takes too kindly to changes forced upon them (especially Linux users!), and like some people just prefer to have Windows running how they like it, with their own custom feel. Window8 Winset is a set of tools all combined into one application to help setup Windows 8 how you’d like it, tweaking it until you’re happy. Obviously it can only be tweaked to an extent, however a tweaking application such as Window8 Winset may be the difference between upgrading to Windows 8, and sticking with Windows 7 for someone.

If you have sensitive files on your computer that contain personal or confidential information, it is crucially important that you properly dispose of these once you are finished with them. Much the same as paper based important documents such as bank statements need to be shredded, some files and documents on your computer need to be permanently erased. Simply moving something to the recycle bin or even removing it from the recycle bin isn’t enough to securely remove it from your computer.

Hot ice is a light hearted freeware puzzle game, in which you pay as an ice cube who has to slip and slide his way across a field which is covered in objects to reach the fire... so he can kill himself. This is a primitive enough concept, with quite an amusing result. The catch to the ice's movement, however is that as he is an ice cube he is very slippery, so can only move in the four cardinal directions (north, east, south, west) and the obstacles are placed in a way to make this difficult.

Demolition derby figure 8 race, or demolition derby for short is a driving / action game hybrid which, instead of driving to the finish, you must drive into the other drivers. This is a unique enough concept, as it completely flips the basic concepts learned in other genres, and does it in a pretty unique way. In addition to having a pretty interesting premise the game boasts some unique features, such as sustained damage, hundreds of combinations of cars (made up from bodies, wheels and colour) and a developing AI which changes as you play games.
