It’s always a good idea to keep your system clean and tidy, and junk free if you’re looking to get consistently high levels of performance from your computer. There are hundreds of thousands of apps out there that’ll assist you in removing junk files, cleaning your cache, and delete traces of your computing activities. Eusing Cleaner is just one of those pieces of software. Straight away after launch, I was surprised at just how incredibly similar it looks to CCleaner, another system cleaner, due to is very comparable colour scheme and user interface.

Finding and launching a program isn’t really difficult in Windows. Most users use built-in Windows Explorer, Quick Launch menu and Start Menu and Desktop. The option of quickly launching an application from Desktop icons is not useful and quick enough, if your desktop is cluttered with icons. Furthermore, Quick Launch bar and Start Menu can hold only a few items. To make launching task easier, Barefoot Productions has introduced a tiny app that holds shortcut to programs to facilitate quick launching.

Alien Arena is a free to play first person shooter game (fps), taking place in a distant future, and taking a variety of queues from old school fps's, with modern graphics, technology and more. The one thing to note about the game from the beginning, though is that the game is not just a "free game" and in fact is a “free to play” game, meaning although the game is free to play, a lot of the games features, mainly customisation based, such as guns, must be bought with real world money.

Wirecast is a freeware live streaming software. Which is used primarily for the purpose of broadcasting live shows through popular services, such as justin.tv, ustream, youtube or a variety of other websites. This is a fairly new concept for the internet and online video, so there are very few programs which can do it, so having wirecast at your disposal is a very valuable tool. If you intend to live stream any form of web show, or video game, then wirecast is certainly a brilliant tool to use.

With growing use of Internet and almost each and everything available online, there can be issues related to Intellectual Property Rights. It is becoming difficult to protect your intellectual property online.  However, you can protect your documents, especially videos and images by placing a watermark on them. Placing watermark on an image or a word document is relatively easy, but watermarking videos effectively can be a tedious and time consuming task.

Xilisoft Multiple Desktops is a piece of software that brings a much loved feature seen in Linux and Mac OSX to Windows. With Xilisoft Multiple Desktops, (as the title implies) you can have multiple instances of your desktop open and running on your system at the same time, each containing different running applications and windows, helping you to manage your workstation and be more productive. This kind of feature has been apart of Linux and OSX natively for a while, yet not seen in Windows, so Xilisoft Multiple Desktops at first glance does look quite interesting and promising.

Got a Mac? Good job! I wish you many happy years to come of fast booting up, shutting down, no BSOD’s, cheap upgrades and multitouch fun! However it seems that its a little more difficult to get completely out of Microsofts’ reach than just going out and purchasing a Mac! Most software out there today is built for Windows, and a Mac doesn’t run Windows  (which is why it’s so good!). Bit of a dilemma, eh! VMware Fusion may help you find a way out of your troubles by letting you run Windows applications on your Mac.

You can think of your computer as an engine in a vehicle. An engine needs to be kept in good condition and cleaned out in order to run best. If not, you could experience problems with it. The hardware inside your computer is exactly the same - the less junk within your system, the better it’ll run and perform for you when you need it to. System Cleaner is a piece of shareware which can help you achieve a ‘cleaner’ and better performing system by scanning for and removing junk, as well as performing other system maintenance tweaks and procedures.

To most people, ensuring the security of the computer or laptop whilst they are way from it is very important. Not only this, ensuring that opened applications or unsaved work is left alone whilst their computer is unattended, is just as important.

Actual Title Buttons surprised me - I thought it was going to turn out to be one of those applications which look interesting or useful, but actually turn out to be pretty useless. In the eyes of the developers, the Windows title bar just isn't powerful enough, so Actual Title Buttons was created, which adds extra functionality to the title bar, in the form of additional buttons. It also includes a few extra features too, which would be most helpful for Windows XP users.

Chatting with your coworkers, friends or anyone who is connected to the same network as yours using conventional chat programs or messengers is never a good idea. This is mainly due to the fact that internet connectivity is required for these chatting programs. Therefore, under no condition you can chat with people on your network without paying for internet bills. Moreover, you need to create an account and there are many other troubles involved.

There are various occasions when you need to decide upon the color by comparing it with other colors visible on the screen. For a web designer, it is more of a day to day activity to decide a color matching to some design on a webpage. This can be done using Adobe’s Photoshop by getting the image into its interface and then by using built-in color picker tool to get the color code of that color but this is not as easy as it seems. However, there is an easy alternative to it; just color picker has made the job of getting the color code from a webpage or any other location remarkably easy.

CDs and DVDs are going out of the picture slowly but surely, thanks to the huge capacity of Hard Disks nowadays. Having said that, CDs still play a vital role in today’s life due to their size, price and most importantly permanent data storage. To burn or rip these CDs or DVDs you need a dedicated program. Similarly, you need another program for saving ISO, mounting disk image and other similar stuff. Thankfully, there is a program called UltraISO which can do almost all tasks related to CDs and DVDs.

End of room is a free ware platformer game with a black and white retro feel to it, like the game shift, except where shift innovated on the concept of a puzzle platformer, end of room does the exact opposite. Firstly though, the premise. In end of room, you play as a black cat (or possibly based on the design a human in a cat suit?) in a black and white maze. You must escape this maze by making it to the teleporter at the end, but between you and the teleporter are a lot of spikes, and there the platforming begins.

Slash xonix is a freeware game which takes the lesser known classic title xonix, and revamps and reworks it into a title for the desktop computer. Xonix (the game on which slash xonix is obviously based) is a game in which you must split the screen up into separate parts with the main character, with the smaller of the two parts you split being filled in, and all the enemies inside being killed. This is a simple concept until you must work out when to split to maximise enemy deaths, and when not to split, a fun and interesting gameplay concept.

Simple sticky notes is a freeware note taking utility to appeal to users in the same way in which a physical sticky note would; by allowing you to write something down very quickly with very little effort (without having to open a program or pull out a dedicated writing device) and then keep the sticky note saved in the corner of your screen (optional) so that you will always be able to focus on whatever task it is that you need done, for organisation, or if there is an important event you are likely to forget otherwise while killing time browsing the web.

You might have experienced that with some programs, other smaller programs are attached and they get installed silently. Also, many times, these programs, also known as adware or spyware, are downloaded silently or by mistake through internet. Usually they attach themselves to system startup, change your web browsers’ homepage and a few other things. In their initial stages, Adware is not as harmful to your computer as much as viruses are, but they definitely have some ill effect on your PC and that can be little annoying.

There was once a time when the browser world was dominated by a single piece of software from Microsoft. Yes, we're talking about Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The internet has evolved and so have browsers. As a result, we have numerous other browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple's Safari giving competition to our good old IE. With a major percentage of internet users preferring Chrome or Firefox over IE, Microsoft faces a challenge to resolve its long standing issues and provide users the experience they desire.

Despite huge growth in technology and tremendous increase in use of flash drives, use of CDs and DVDs hasn’t disappeared yet. Conventional 700MB CDs are still in use, largely due to the fact that they are extremely cheap. In addition of being cheap, they are easy to carry and can store data permanently. CDs have their own disadvantages. Even a slightest of scratch or dust particle can ruin the entire data on your CD rendering it unreadable and hence unusable.

Soft4Boost Disk Cleaner is a really easy program to use. There are thousands of different applications out there, free and paid, that try and remove junk from your system to help improve speed and overall system performance. Soft4Boost Disk Cleaner is one of the free ones, and does a good job.

The installation process didn't go quite as smoothly as I would have liked. Nothing failed, it just included a restart, and also decided to install the IncrediBar toolbar whilst it was at it, even though I’m sure I un-ticked the box for any extra installs.

If you share a computer at home or at work, some users may their own have personal preferences regarding the screen resolution that your monitor or projector is set up, and the colors that are displayed. This could be because of bad eye sight, specific application requirements, and so on. Screen Resolution Manager helps avoid the constant need to change resolution manually each time a different user logs in.

I wasn't expecting Screen Resolution Manager to be quite as easy to setup as it is.
