Works great, and a very cool feature is the ability to store custom sound configurations, for example Home, Office, Public, etc. Thank you once again, Nir ! !

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

It's not stealth. Where the files or regs stored?

How about making network scanners visible? Lots of AIO network printers around.

Can someone tell me where the .jpg images are left behind? I want to delete them but am unable to find them. Thanks.

Ozeki supplies commercial software and the download is crippled: "The trial version has a limited time for usage. You can use the software in trial mode for a 20 day evaluation period". This is a freeware site, so I pressed delete on sophiamurphy's comment above...

I have tried a lot of free softphones. Although there are some things I don't like about this one, I think it is the best, most-fully-featured of them all. There are no "pay later" limitations (which I understand, but don't like). You can transfer calls, you get a voicemail-checker, and if you visit the forum, Mr. Sommerfeldt will answer every one of your posts. He's not always sympathetic, but you'll never be ignored. I have been using this program for about 3 years now, and I do a lot of tech support. I would definitely recommend it.

BGM on 2014-01-17 04:40

Ah, I keep coming back to this one. I use a Jabra GN9350. This is the only softphone where I can answer and end calls using the power-button on the headset. On Windows 7 it has a few issues where you can't hear the other person, however. The authour is a German fellow in Germany, and I suppose it is hard for him to debug. If you post in his forum he will answer you.
