Every time you install a new program or application your computer, many different files and folders are created. These different files and folders either support the program you’re trying to install, make the new application work properly, or house the critical program files needed for it to run. However, running a simple application uninstaller doesn’t always remove the other files, and just removes the main ones. Mirekusoft Install Monitor helps you remove all the files by monitoring how the application installs and where it puts its files, and then properly removing them all during the uninstallation.

Therefore, Registry Cleaners come in handy, as they pick out the unnecessary data left in your registry and remove them to help speed up system responsiveness and overall performance.

Magnifying Glass Pro does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. It magnifies certain areas of your screen as a real magnifying glass would do, to assist visually restricted users in seeing all the content on their desktop.  One of the main competitors of Magnifying Glass Pro would be the standard Magnifier utility that has been built into Windows for many years now, and has a primary advantage being that no additional download and installation is required to use it.

It's always been a good idea to stay well within visual distance of your valuables. Your laptop is no exception, and needs looking out for just as much as your phone, wallet, bag, etc. However, if you do have to step away from your laptop every now and again and it does become out of your line of sight whilst in a public place, ALARM may be a piece of freeware which can help put your mind at rest. What it essentially does is cause your laptop to play a rather noticeable sound effect if your laptop is unplugged from A/C power, therefore if someone is after your laptop and tries to unplug it and make swift get away whilst your back it turned, you should be able to hear the alarm and stop him from getting away with your entire life’s worth of photos, music and documents!

ALARM is a very simple application to use, and comes with a default alarm sound (as expected).

When it comes to image editing, you need to have a good program for excellent results. One of the names that come to perhaps to everyone’s mind is Adobe Photoshop. There is no denying the fact that Photoshop is an excellent choice when it comes to professional image editing, but for beginners to do daily editing, it is a little too bulky and it is also time consuming to use it. There are many programs made for daily image editing and Irfanview is one of them.

If you are a technical enthusiast, and you love having the latest and greatest hardware, no doubt you'll be just as interested in how well your hardware performs.

Ever wondered how you could run more than one operating system on your computer? How about run more than one operating system on your computer, but at the same time? Of course its more than possible, and using VMware Workstation to do so to me seems like a very good idea. VMware Workstation is a great package for Windows and Linux that allows you to visualize and run virtual systems, inside your operating system without the need to restart your computer or make any changes to your host operating system.

Since the Windows 95 days, its seen a massive overhaul and is now a lot more informative and powerful. However, for some people, the Task Manager just isn't enough and not powerful enough, which created the motive to design SterJo Task Manager.

I don't really understand Yo Window, and I'm not sure what I was expecting to see when I downloaded it. From first glance, it just appears to be a moving image of a landscape – a very pretty one nonetheless. My expectation was to see something relating to the city in which I live, as I had to define this before opening Yo Window, but all I appear to see that related to my location is the weather in Fahrenheit – this is not something I need in a full screen, moving, flash application draining my resources.

Back in the older Windows days, there used to be a dedicated utility for scanning your computer using keywords and details to locate specific files.

UltraFileSearch seems like a trip down memory road, and is a very simple application for searching through your system to find your missing documents, photos, videos, and other files.

UltraFileSearch is really easy to use.

RAM, or Random Access memory is depended on more and more these days due to more powerful systems, hardware, and applications. A few years ago, 128mb of RAM would have been totally adequate to run your system and get everything out of it that you require. Nowadays, systems require up to 8GB of RAM in order to process information quickly enough and get your day to day tasks done as you'd like them, therefore, keeping your RAM optimized and in good share is kind of important! The better your RAM is performing, the more you'll get out of your system in terms of speed and responsiveness.
