PageDefrag 2.3 - Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003
(FileSize: 35 kb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

One of the limitations of the Windows NT/2000 defragmentation interface is that it is not possible to defragment files that are open for exclusive access. Thus, standard defragmentation programs can neither show you how fragmented your paging files or Registry hives are, nor defragment them. Paging and Registry file fragmentation can be one of the leading causes of performance degradation related to file fragmentation in a system.

PageDefrag uses advanced techniques to provide you what commercial defragmenters cannot: the ability for you to see how fragmented your paging files and Registry hives are, and to defragment them. In addition, it defragments event log files and Windows 2000/XP hibernation files (where system memory is saved when you hibernate a laptop).

PageDefrag works on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Server 2003.

TaskTracker 1.0.376 - Windows 2000/XP
(FileSize: 417 kb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

TaskTracker takes the Windows Explorer and turns it inside out. Say goodbye to tedious searches for files in Windows' convoluted file system. Now you can get to the files you want to work with - and open, copy, rename, or move them - right away without having to remember where you left them.

With TaskTracker, your files are right where you need them all the time. You may have gotten used to the Windows way of doing things, but no matter what level of Windows user you are, keeping track of your files is probably a low point in your Windows experience.

TaskTracker automatically tracks all kinds of Office documents; jpg, gif, and other image formats; mp3, wma, and other music files - and many, many other documents types you work with on a daily basis.

You can sort file types alphabetically, by frequency of use, or by most recent use - and you can sort the files of each type by dates, names, containing folders, or folder paths. The files you last worked with will already be at the top of the list, if that is what you want. Or you can filter files according to time periods of your choosing, like yesterday, last week, or a month ago.

The longer you use TaskTracker, the more files it tracks and the more useful it becomes as the single point of access for all your document-centered Windows work.

Cascade DTP 4.0.009 Windows - 98/ME/NT/2000/XP
(FileSize: 2.1 mb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

Cascade DTP is a new kind of web page composition tool that harnesses the powerful features of cascading style sheet (CSS) layout and formatting commands.
Until recently, web designers were forced to use HTML tables as a means of controlling the position of page elements. But since the launch of IE5, Netscape 6 and later browsers, over 95% of web users can now view pages written using CSS.

Unfortunately, most of the major web editing packages still incorporate CSS tools as an add-on, which causes confusion and discourages a break with the compromises of the past.

Cascade DTP is different. Nearly all its functions are based entirely on the CSS layout model. The result is far cleaner code and much enhanced control over positioning and typography. This typically means pages download quicker because it is no longer necessary to convert text to images in order to give headings and logos the desired look.

If you want to see what can be achieved with this ground breaking application - look no further. The Price Media website was built entirely using Cascade DTP.

Ever wondered which program has a particular file or directory open? Now you can find out. Process Explorer shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded.

The Process Explorer display consists of two sub-windows. The top window always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that Process Explorer is in: if it is in handle mode you?ll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened; if Process Explorer is in DLL mode you?ll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded. Process Explorer also has a powerful search capability that will quickly show you which processes have particular handles opened or DLLs loaded.
