Version 4.9 has been released :)

There always seems to be a gem in every new version of this amazing program. The new "Design and Print" (Alt+P) is no exception - very nice.

Just a reminder. Faststone builds a thumbnail database (FSViewer.db) as it scans folders. This process can be a little slow the first time it scans a folder, particularly if there are lots of hi-res pics. However, the advantage is that subsequent visits to folders already scanned are very fast loading the thumbnails. The downside is that the database, which can be very large, is stored on the flash-drive (although with the size of flash-drives these days it's much less a problem than it once was). However, if you are using a small flash-drive the solution is simple: go to settings (F12) | Thumbnail tab | disable "Use thumbnail database". Loading thumbnails will be slower, but the there's no thumbnail database file clogging smaller flash-drives.

Decided to give this app a try, and I'm blown away by it. I love the fact that it allows basic 'digital darkroom' work on the .dng files produced by my Pentax K10D and Ricoh GX200 cameras. Previously, I could use the simple Pentax Photolab on the K10D files, but it wouldn't recognise the Ricoh ones; I had to use the (too complicated for my needs) RawTherapee (the Ricoh software was cr*p). Now I can use the same software for both. Brilliant!

Version 4.18.4844 acts too differently from version 4.7.4808. I definitely do not need Active Computer Monitoring. When I clean my browser history with CCleaner, I cleaning it manually, not when someone else tells me to. There's far too much interference in my life from other humans. I am staying with version 4.7.4808.

Turns out CCleaner 4.18.4844 "Active System Monitoring" can be turned off, after all:

1. Open CCleaner, then click Options > Monitoring
2. Disable System Monitoring by unticking the box next to "Enable System Monitoring"
3. Disable Active Monitoring by unticking the box next to "Enable Active Monitoring",
and click Yes when the confirmation box appears

See here for an ongoing discussion about "Active System Monitoring" usage:

__philippe, thank you very much. Thank God for disable switches in this software. Too bad I can't do the same thing to the NSA and the EPA!

See all Registry Backup v1.10.0 Updated

webfork on 26 Sep 2014 Registry Backup does live registry backups using Windows' own Volume Shadow Copy Service. The program is user-friendly and allows selection of specific registry files to backup or restore. Restored backups can be done via Safe Mode or from the recovery console.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the Portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch TweakingRegistryBackup.exe
  3. In the Settings tab, enter a relative path as the Backup Location

Note: If you are likely to want to restore from the recovery console, use a path relative to the drive root (e.g., "\RegBackup"), otherwise the restore script will fail.
What's new?
  • Fixed but where backup couldn't happen when a user had Unicode chars in their date and time on the system.
  • Added code to detect what drive letters are in use on the system and if the vss drive letter in the program is set to one that is in use then the program will auto change the vss drive letter to use. If vss mapped a drive letter that as already in use then Windows would freak out until rebooted and the backup would fail. This will no longer happen with this new function.
  • Updated the controls in the program to use less sub classing. When the program was ran in hidden mode and the controls tried to draw themselves and the program went to close itself after a backup the program would crash. The new changes to the controls make the program more stable and will hopefully fix this problem.
  • Updated graphics to the interface of the program.
  • Moved the image controls used in the program into a ocx file. This has reduced the size of the main exe by 460 KB. Also making the program more stable and require less memory.
  • Multiple interface code tweaks and enhancements.

Listary v4.23.1727 Updated

Checker on 24 Sep 2014

Listary is an enhancement that allows you to quickly search almost any listing in Windows by simply typing your search terms. The program will pop up a small, semi-transparent window in Explorer windows (including open/save dialogs), Task Manager, Registry Editor, and even directly on your desktop. The program works with almost any application with a system-generated list.

Although some programs will automatically jump to the first letter you type (a find-as-you-type feature of Windows Explorer), you must type quickly for more than one letter and cannot see your output. Listary brings a long-time feature of Linux to Windows, letting you enter whole words, and type slower with automatic changes. Additionally, it allows wildcards and has the ability to edit your input with immediate results.

Advanced features include hotkeys, autocomplete, blacklists, favorites, a customizable window. Note that the program contains many "pro"-only features, but the program is very functional in its basic version.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Free for personal use
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to temporary folder

What's new? New:
  • Search filters (Check Listary Options – Search for more information).

  • Export list content to Excel (.xlsx).

  • New hotkeys (Ctrl+N : Next item, Ctrl+P : Previous item, Ctrl+O : Enter Actions menu)

@juvera: don't count on it. A friend of mine thought himself immune because he was running win98 and didn't bother with anti-virus and firewalls. After a week his machine was thorougly trashed.

Got a reply from Listary support - they cant support windows 2000, since it seems their IDE (Visual Studio 2010) dropped support. Oh well, I'll get started with autoit.
