This is for Immortal, with RegClean do you have to keep re downloading it to remove things free again, or is it once per day or something?

Regclean: Microsoft made an unofficial program with that name a long time ago. I still use it.

 

If this program does the same, it scans the registry to find unused keys and removes them. Since there are sometimes forward references, I always run it twice. The Microsoft version does not keep any info on spy/mal wares -- it only removes unused entries -- usually left over from a trial or after an uninstall..

For me, it's going to be Firefox. My browser seems to be my bread and butter these days. I basically expect it to do anything...even make coffee some day in the future.

 

:(

 

 

Virus cleans, and stuff like that, well, I'm extremely careful with pushing any links on the net, I never click on any link in msn unless someone tells me they're sending a link...and in almost seven years of operation with this comp...knock on wood...not one single virus yet. And, I do download virus checkers every once in a while and use em for the month or so... always clean...even using kaspersky.

 

:)

My fav is Winmerge, if anyone has ever had to upgrade exisiting code and has added mods to it, it is a life saver. I learn't the hard way a couple of years ago when I forgot to back up a website that had quite a few mods to it and blindly upgraded to the next version :)

Oh ouch... :) The thought of upgrading always freaks me out a bit. I'm always worried that I'll lose a mod in the process which is why I try to do as little modding as possible. Good one funki. I'll be checking out that winmerge for sure. ;)

 

Awesome topic btw bhj!

I have a shopping cart site that I look after and upgrades are always been developed, it has a load of mods on it (converting it from UK to Aus, including skins, shipping, payment gateways etc, ) just setting it up originally took hours, and in one foul swoop it was all gone. Winmerge is now the first thing I open when that little flashy icon says "Upgrade available: :friends3:

I use Firefox and love it.

I also use roboform. This remembers my passwords I hate it when I have a password memorized and the next program I want to use says you can use this because you have to have "X" more letters. Or Sorry you have to have numbers also. I can't keep track of all the different passwords or variations of the original passwords I have Roboform on my desktop and Roboform2 for my U3drive

aaah the VLC player (we like that one) :whistle:

 

we had quite a bit of a media circus over here with one of the VLC´s developers (I think thats what he was/is) (DVD Jon) kinda funny actually things got blown way way out of proportion and about half of what the press said was just wrong :drunkards:

Need some help on VLC!

 

I've tried the program before, and now I tried it again, but here's my problem with it:

Almost every time I load a movie in it from my HDD, it looks completely wrong.

I get a big wide green static bar on the left side of the screen.

Now, I never have this problem with neither Winamp, nor WMP, nor AVI-Preview.

 

Is there a fix to this? I just use VLC standard, no extra codecs or anything.

TuneUp works excellent, for me. I've never experience any problems with it. It's mostly a 'clean up'-tool, I'd guess you could call it a sort of enhanced defragmentation. It fixes all those little things we're all 'unaware' of as Windows users :)

RocketDock has a new docklet in town, it's simply amazing: Stack Docklet.

Access to the content from your complete my documents folder in RocketDock!

 

Note: you have to enable "store settings in a portable .ini" to make it save your settings for these docklets.
