“Over the years [Chrome] has gained a reputation for being something of a resource hog, gobbling up your PC’s memory like it’s going out of style.” Starting with version 108, the Chrome desktop browser has a feature called Memory Saver that deactivates tabs that aren’t currently being used. When a user accesses a deactivated tab, it automatically reloads. A user can turn Memory Saver on or off. A user can also exclude specific sites from Memory Saver, keeping tabs for those sites active. See:

@Fox: You might want to run files you test through VirusTotal before posting. I rechecked both 32 and 64 bit and both are safe.

PapaiMark on 2023-11-06 02:46

It is my default sound manager. Not perfect. It has the worst 'compressor' you can imagine but the 'limiter' is perfect. Very easy to use. Uses only VST2 plugins. For a good and free compressor, use eaReckon FREE87 FR-COMP. Very simple. Important to say also that the copy/paste sound areas count as miliseconds. So, after many operations, the time of the sound will be higher or lower.

This is not portable by default; it needs an extra step. From the readme:

"By default, the TheAeroClock.ini will be created in the folder %APPDATA%/TheAeroClock

For portable use, please create or copy in TheAeroClock working directory the TheAeroClock.ini."

stisev on 2021-02-16 03:07

For any poor souls out there who can't figure this app out.

1. Create TheAeroClock.ini in the app dir or it will write to /AppData
2. There seems to be a longstanding bug that does not show the app in the tray
3. If you want to see the program options, launch the app twice (yes you can't make this stuff up - there's no right click options, lol)

Note: starting with actual version 6.18 TagScanner requires the VC-/Universal Runtimes. I stumbled upon because this runtimes cannot be installed on my system. Version 6.17 however works fine.
For systems without this runtimes the workaround could be to copy the runtimes from LibreOffice or Firefox and place them in the root folder of TagScanner (x86 or x64 accordingly).

Andrew Lee on 8 Apr 2024

It allows you to easily find files by wildcard, last modified/created/last accessed time, file attributes, content (text or binary search) and file size. File types available for search includes Microsoft Office and PDF files. The program also be detect duplicate files via the "Search Mode" drop-down box.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

I have tried and used several search apps before and was not very impressed but as soon as I saw that this product was from NirSoft I knew I had to try it. NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.

The latest version is such a welcome addition as it allows you to set the font and size used in the search results.

My eyes are not what they once was, so increasing the font size makes things much more legible for me especially when sitting far back in my chair!

agam, this morning (2021 Jan 04) Firefox continues to block your site. Chrome and Edge do not.

agam on 2021-01-04 12:52

I have been using Firefox for many years and have never experienced this before. Maybe there is something wrong with your Firefox ??

It's blocked for me in FF too: "The site ahead may contain harmful programs"

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?

I use shredder.exe. It is less than 150kb and fast. As I work, I can move files to be deleted into a 'new folder', planted anywhere. When I am done, shredder.exe takes the 'new folder', and seconds later, it is gone. Loading individual files works fine, too.

LonerD on 2018-12-10 08:45

Unicode support- partially. Author doesn't want implement fully support. Some months ago I reported about bug - program can't work with Unicode file names from command line. No answer, no fix...
