  • Suggested by infimum

HashMyFiles is a small utility that allows you to generate unique file identifiers (hashes) using a variety of popular checks. These can help determine if a file has been modified or corrupted, as well as help determine the file's reputation by submitting to the VirusTotal database for malware analysis.

Formats supported range form fast to secure with CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512. The various hashing information can be saved to a report (text/html/xml) that includes name, path, dates, file size, version and other info.

One cannot copy "SHA-384" and "SHA-512" values from context menu or via a hot key- to get "SHA-384" and "SHA-512" values one have to save to file ("Save Selected Items Ctrl+S") which is awkward.

How about dropping a gentle hint to nirsofer@yahoo.com ?

"How about dropping a gentle hint to nirsofer@yahoo.com ?"
If someone does this I will appreciate- I remember that long time ago I messaged NirSoft about something and since I got no response I will not try again. More- lately I am not in a very gentle mood. ;)

DNS Benchmark v1.3.6668.0 Updated

billon on 10 May 2018
  • 166KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 4 Apr 2018
  • Suggested by linuxamp

DNS Benchmark can help speed up internet service through the analysis of multiple Domain Name System servers. The graphical analysis can help you avoid slow and overloaded servers. Users who may have an especially bad DNS problem will see a noticeably slow reaction after typing in a www.whatever.com address and the website appearing.

Since Google's DNS and the OpenDNS services may or may not be a good option, this tool can help you determine that clearly.

Functional in WINE.

Note that this program does not have the ability to modify your DNS. Users must modify system settings or use a tool like QuickSetDNS.

Category:
System Requirements: WinAll / Wine
Writes settings to: None
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download DNSBench.exe to a folder of your choice and launch.

Much useful tool, works fine under Win7.
Sadly, bombs under WinXP; perhaps the "OS Requirements" field needs updating?

@__philippe:

works without any problems here

__philippe on 2018-05-11 04:26

Dunno, some oddity with my old WinXP machine config ?

For "statistical confidence"'sake, would another fellow member also
kindly try and run Steve Gibson's fine DNS Benchmark tool under XP ?

Thanks.

I've been using Don't Sleep for some time now and it works great for me. It updates frequently but I never had a problem with the many previous versions. I use it when doing routine unattended maintenance, when making large backups and downloads.

allclownsareevil on 2012-02-05 19:20

I think "Don't Sleep" should win an award for the most updated program on TPFW. :-) Works well though, thanks.

MIKLO on 2017-07-02 14:24

WOW no comments for such a long time, this is a program I have used for many years and it still works great for me even now while using Windoze 10 does just what it says and does it perfectly.

CurrPorts v2.51 Updated

billon on 20 Apr 2018
  • 126KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Apr 2018
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened networking ports on your local computer. For each TCP/IP and UDP port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description and so on), the time that the process was created and the user that created it.

In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file, XML file, or to tab-delimited text file. The program will automatically mark with pink suspicious ports owned by unidentified applications (applications without version information and icons).

System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

What's new?
  • Added 'Creation Timestamp' column, which displays the date/time that the connection was created. Be aware that this information is not available for all connections and it works better on Windows 10.

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.
