Backup your drivers - 3 free programs
Semper Driver Backup
Thanks. Just tried double driver, it's really nice and portable. And it works flawlessly. Just what I need. You can place a link to author's site. http://www.boozet.org/dd.htm
You should add this thread to your sig Entrop. Good thing I came across this.. was looking for that bluescreen reader thingy
also try black box here is the link: http://hwmblackbox.com/en/download
Windows 7 USB Tool - Very handy to make bootable USB sticks with Windows 7. Don't know if it works with other versions of Windows, although it did work with Windows 8 32 bit.
^ i use this, and once its done if you delete "ei.cfg" off the flash drive it becomes an 'all in one' disk (well, AIO 32 bit, if it was a 32 bit disk/ISO, and so on)
Fog Server. Not sure if it fits here though.
Here's a free one that varies the changes monitor colors and intensity depending on the time of day. It's supposed to reduce eye strain and PC World seemed to like it (Dec. 2011, p109)
It's called F.lux. Apparently you have to give it a few days until you get used to it.
A nice program called Synctoy, from Microsoft. You sync files between folders/computers. Works very well and is easy to use. You can only sync files in two locations at the same time though.
Another Microsoft program (or something like that, from the Garage): Mouse without Borders. It lets you use one keyboard and mouse with up to four computers, using the network. It works just like with two monitors, except the mouse moves over to a whole other system. Use Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F4 to select which system to use and if you can control all systems at the same time.
And it works like a charm, and the installation is a breeze. And it's a 1.1 MB download.
It is seriously awesome when you have say a desktop and a laptop running side by side.
EDIT: Good god I'm in heaven.
Windows Defender Offline

Nice suite, plus you can always update it online before using it on offline machine.
Very good and really tiny and cool program.
I've just checked it myself. No quality loss.
It kills rootkits pretty fast.
I just found this one for blue ray. PotPlayer1.5.38085
It's free and worked on all my rips.
Nice place to get portable free windows utilities 32 and 64 bit. Especially yaru - Yet Another Registry Utility
can anyone suggest a low-level format utility?(sorry if it's been already mentioned)
Basically I want something to format only a partition of the HDD,only the one with the OS on!
portable, 150 kb in size or something
Very nice disk bench. Creates files, copies, deletes etc.
You will need to have .Net framework 4 installed
domdomsoft manga downloader (a manga downloader XD), also they ave a manga reader
freemake video encoder, a great an easy free app, mediacoder and super are better in quaility, but this thing is very gast, uses cuda, and it is so easy , but so easy to use, wow
just a image viewer and simple editor to rename, convert, etc, just like acdsee pro but more simple and free
media player classic home cinema + madvr + lav filters (cuda) = best video player ever with amazing quaility
inksaver, (not free), for more ink
internet download manager (not free) great download manager
cool app to view images using the gpu, so it is very fast with big pics of 12MP and stuff
And how useful is that? Using the "fast" printing setting of your printer, in combination with good quality paper will save a lot of ink as well. More than a "magical" program can do.
inksaver prints more light than the fast setting from hp, still you can read very well
Handy freebie utility for measuring your boot time.
nice lightweight freeware security tools I found @ Techradar
System Security Guard
Stand-alone malware removal tools by ESET
Plus another good kit (this one is not lightweight)
Emsisoft Emergency Kit
EasyBCD free for non-commercial use. Download here.
I actually like this one, much better than the other crap you see around and it is more true to it's name.
add this to ccleaner directory and win
cleans extra apps that ccleaner doesn't normally clean
Photorec just helped me save most of my friend's personal data from a failing hard drive. This worked even after the drives partitions were formatted.
Separate names with a comma.
