@ mukhi - Could your AV or FW program be blocking the download or the download site? Have you been able to download other files with no issue?

Sometimes show advertisement: http://www.imghosting.cz/images/95SoftPerfectNetScan.jpg

DzejPy: verified. However, if you just click "Ok got it" in that image, it goes away and doesn't come back. Think we can let the adware notice slide for the moment.

  • 309KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by Checker

WakeMeOnLan allows you to easily turn on one or more computers remotely by sending Wake-on-LAN (WOL) packet over the network. This will return machines from a standby or turned-off state, useful for administrators or to save electricity until resources are needed. WakeMeOnLan also allows you to scan your network and collect the MAC addresses of all online computers. This information can be exported to a file.

Additionally, an available command-line interface can turn on a computer using a computer name, IP address, or the MAC address of the remote network card.

What is an "Alternate Stream" ?
Are you talking about 'streaming video' ?

Checker on 2014-01-11 00:40

@ vmars316: Alternate (Data) Streams are a data structure for holding additional structured data within a file in addition to the main data.
The Windows NTFS file system allows so-called Alternate Data Streams (ADS). With this function, data can be stored invisibly tied by the user to a file.

MyEventViewer v2.13 Updated

Checker on 8 Apr 2015
  • 85KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by fred65

MyEventViewer is intended as an improved alternative to the standard Windows event viewer. The program allows the viewing of multiple event logs combined into one list, as well as the event description and data in the main window.  Also, with MyEventViewer you can easily select multiple event items and then save them to HTML/Text/XML file, or copy them to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and paste them into Excel.

Vista and 7 users: Note that the available system event viewer is more detailed than this program.

What's new?
  • Fixed MyEventViewer to display error message when it fails to load external file with /LoadFiles command-line option.
  • Fixed bug: MyEventViewer failed to remember the last size/position of the main window if it was not located in the primary monitor.

I forgot to mention that heuristic detection only indicates that something MIGHT be amiss, not that there IS something wrong.

Connect to (other) computer would be handy.... :)
Still useful though.

It will Connect to other computer

The link to Nir's site above explains three methods:

'Connecting a remote computer in your network'
'Reading External .evt files'
and a further blog post
'How to connect a remote Windows 7/Vista/XP computer with ...'

Nir's software is always handy :)
