    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

    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.
    Gambit389 and Mussels say thanks.

    ^ 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.

    Very good and really tiny and cool program.

    I've just checked it myself. No quality loss.
    It kills rootkits pretty fast.

    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

    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
    Chevalr1c says thanks.

    I actually like this one, much better than the other crap you see around and it is more true to it's name.

    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.
