    nope, go to google video and search "jact", watch the videos, read the comments, then go to their forums, read how happy people are with it, then try it.

    BlueTack Host manager

    great little app that lets you easly download and update your host file to block adds and redirect sites as you wish, also lets you enable/dissable the hosts file quickly if you need to for some reasion.

    better then any other method of blocking adds :)

    I use the encoder for the ATI cards, works wonders and it is quick too.



    X-Setup Pro is awesome.

    K-Lite Mega Codec Pack - the only set of codecs which play all my files and dvd's without any problems and which do not interfere with games either.

    DVD-Region + CSS Free to watch dvd's from any region... but it costs $39.95
    ;)

    i am from the opposing group who claim Klite is a pain in the butt and bloated. i use CCCP, which is aimed to be a lot more lightweight and less chance of going wrong. (CCCP gets it first hit in google)

    Helllooooo

    I wasn't bitching about the complexity. lol.

    Agree x 1000000000000000000000. Klite is crap in comparison. It's shameful when a codec pack can have filter conflicts from a clean default install.
