I really wish it had a spell check feature. If it did, I would replace all of my text editors with this one. It is fast, stable, and has a small footprint.

  • Suggested by guinness

DVD Drive Repair allows you to restore your DVD (Optical) Drive if missing from Windows. In some instances, it can also help when certain applications do not recognize your drive; mostly when your computer encountered a hardware problem or a virus attack that prevents it from using the DVD Drive.

Additionally, the program can also reset the Autorun settings to default and protect your system from Autorun malware by disabling autorun features for removable drives.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Updated the entry to reflect since v2.10.1 support for Vista has been dropped. Check earlier versions if you need Vista support, and v2.9.4 if for some reason you require XP support.

Brosix connects to ICQ, Google Talk, MSN and Facebook networks , but cannot connect to Jabber and Yahoo. Has anyone experienced this connection problem with Jabber and Yahoo?

Ricochet v1.1.4 New

webfork on 30 Jun 2017
  • 52MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Nov 2016
  • Suggested by smaragdus

Ricochet is a simple, text-only instant messenger built for security and anonymity. The program uses the Tor network hidden services feature to hide one's identity and connections are encrypted end-to-end. The program intentionally does not save chat history.

Note that unlike most IM tools you do not need to register a username, instead generating a unique address (e.g. "ricochet:rs7ce36jsj24ogfw"). Other Ricochet users can use this address to connect with you. These addresses can be generated and discarded as needed.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac and Linux.
