    Good thread but none of the core temp programs will show my core temps.
    It just shows 0c for all cores.

    Thanks

    At first, I thought it was bullshit but after trying that I see it works like a charm. Thumbs up! Great app.

    Hmmmmm. seems like the free edition is good for those once-off backups and restores.

    An awesome site full of all kinds of free utilities/apps. Great place to find lots of apps helpful in troubleshooting. A-few of the apps on the site aren't worth a darn notably some of the portable AV apps, though overall its an awesome site.

    Portable apps definitely deserves a mention as well:

    Bootable USB drive program with the silly name Rufus. Claims to be faster than other tools, but when I tried the tiny Slitaz iso it was way slower than the Universal USB Installer so I dunno. It worked though and it's very simple.

    SuperOrca

    Awesome freeware MSI editor - a direct replacement to the "Orca" MSI Editor from Microsoft Windows SDK. It's a database table editor for creating and editing Windows Installer packages and merge modules.

    Roboscan Internet Security Free
    It's not a particularly known vendor but it is trustworthy. Roboscan IS Free has antivirus based on BitDefender which is very good, firewall is rather basic but it does the job. It has nice interface and it's quite light and quick. And for the free version, it doesn't really lack many features. Basically just some optimizers and cleaners for system. Which i don't want in security software anyway.

    So, if you want a BitDefender based antivirus which is free, give this one a try.

    BitDefender Antivirus Free
    http://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/free.html

    This is a brand new BitDefender Free that just got released yesterday. It's full featured on detection but very stripped down on the interface. So it's basically like MSE with very high detection. Since it's free you can't really go wrong with it :)

    Disk Imager for Windows

    Writes images to stuff (usb sticks) and vice versa. Note it writes it properly, so if you have a 2GB stick and writes a 650MB image to it, even after you reformat the stick you still have 650MB. Go into the disk management and redo it there and it works again.

    So why the program? Sometimes copy/paste (mount the image in a daemon, ctrlcctrlv) doesn't work properly. Trying it out now on a noname 2GB stick with FreeBSD.

    Not sure actually, I think it's just a fancy copy/paste program. On the other hand we have this comment:

    By that comment it looks like you can.
