DiskInternals NTFS Reader 1.01 - Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP
(FileSize: 606 kb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

Provides read access to NTFS disks from Windows 95, 98 and Me. Allows you to save any files to any disk visible on the system or on the network. Supports saving compressed or encrypted files. While saving, it ignores file security policies. It means that it is possible to access absolutely any file on a NTFS disk from Windows 9x. The program can create and open images of NTFS disks.
NTFS is the main system in Windows XP/2003/2000/NT. Windows 9x, Me have no NTFS support and you have to use external utilities, such as NTFS Reader, to access such volumes.

To access disks, an original mechanism is used that is why it is possible to work with NTFS disks from Windows 9x, Me. Unlike other similar programs, DiskInternals NTFS Reader never writes to NTFS volumes. We 100% guarantee the safety of your data.

Working with NTFS disk Images
The program can create and mount disk images. Working with an image does not differ from working with a disk in Explorer. Along with the image of a logical disk, it is possible to mount the image of the entire physical disk. In this case the program will automatically find all volumes and display them.

Save locked files and Ignore access rights
Due to its own driver for accessing NTFS disks, the program can save locked system files, such as $MFT, $Bitmap, $boot, Registry, Swap and other locked files.

When reading files, the program ignores all security policies and file access rights. Even if it is forbidden to access a file, NTFS Reader will be able to save it!

NTFS Reader is FREE.. http: //www.DiskInternals.com

pcAudit 6.3 - Windows 95/98/NT/Me/2000/XP
(FileSize: 98 kb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

pcAudit™ is a free security evaluation program, for personal computers, developed by Internet Security Alliance, Inc.

How it works:

pcAudit™ is a program developed to simulate an attack by a hacker. To determine whether your computer is secure, pcAudit™ will try to send data from your computer to Internet Security Alliance's server. If pcAudit™ succeeds it means that your current security measures are ineffective.

A little more technical:

Our research shows that ".dll" files sending and receiving data, to and from the Internet, outnumber ".exe" files by 2 to 1 margin.
Using a "dll" file as a "payload", pcAudit™ will test for vulnerabilities exploited by such notorious malicious programs as "Happy99" or recent "Sircam", overlooked by most personal and corporate firewalls.

Stickies 4.5b - Windows 98/2000/XP
(FileSize: 527 kb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

Stickies is a PC utility I wrote to try to cut down on the number of Post-It® notes I was leaving stuck to my monitor. It is a computerised version of those notes.

The idea behind Stickies is that the program is small and simple. Admittedly, over time it's grown in size as I've added features, but it compiles to around 248k, which is pretty tiny by today's standards. Stickies will not mess with your system files, or write to the registry. Stickies stores all information in a single text-based ini file. The program is written in Microsoft Visual C++.

Stickies will never support animated dancing figures, or play "Greensleeves". They are instead yellow rectangular windows onto which you can put some notes. Once created, they will stay on screen until you take them away. Just like a real sticky piece of paper.

Main features:

-Once on screen, stickies will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots
-Stickies appearance can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Stickies can be resized horizontally.
-Languages other than English for the interface are also supported.
-Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using a SMTP mail server:
-Hierarchical friends list, which may be automatically transferred from other friends
-WAV file play/PC speaker beep on receive
-Signature for transmitted or emailed stickies
-Favourite friends can be chosen
-Stickies can be hidden (sent to sleep!) for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders
-International language support
-Save to file/Import from file, to transfer stickies by removable media
-Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a single text file, and does not touch the registry
...and Stickies is completely free!

Mp3Gain 1.30b - Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP
Also available for Mac OS...
Requires Visual Basic 6 Files
(FileSize: 2.3 mb *Full Install* with VB6 files.)(692 kb without VB6 files)
[Freeware] ScreenShot

Tired of reaching for your volume knob every time your mp3 player changes to a new song? MP3Gain analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same volume. MP3Gain does not just do peak normalization, as many normalizers do. Instead, it does some statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear. Also, the changes MP3Gain makes are completely lossless. There is no quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, without decoding and re-encoding.

DVD Decrypter 3.5.1.0 - Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003
(FileSize: 808 kb) [Freeware] ScreenShots

DVD Decrypter is a free tool which enables you decrypt and copy a DVD to your PC's hard disk.

From there you can choose to watch them with the likes of PowerDVD and WinDVD or you can re-encode them to MPEG1 (VCD) or DivX.

Advanced functionality can be found in the context menus.

What's New in This Release:

  Added: Ability to Import / Export PSL (Protected Sectors List) files (Option is located in the 'File' menu). Users can work out the best methods to backup certain 'problem' discs
  Added: Dialog box to remind users to load the MDS file instead of the ISO file - it's good practice and is vital for nice DL burns
  Changed: Structure Protection code to find more instances of 'suspect' areas on the disc
  Changed: Some of the Automatic 'Transfer Length' code. It now checks for additional possible errors in the output from the API call
  Changed: Previous workaround for Plextor PX-712A authentication problem caused problems for old drives that hang on a 'Rezero' command (Status bar always displayed 'Almost Ready'). The command now only runs on Plextor DVDR drives
  Fixed: Access violation errors caused by nasty IFO files on some of the newer discs
  Fixed: 'Browse' was always visible in the 'File' menu
  Fixed: Potential issue with getting the disc size from the ISO9660 file system (only used in ISO Read mode on DVD+RW discs)
  Fixed: 'Cracking CSS' dialog box showed very inaccurate progress information
  Fixed: CSS cracking was repeating itself on files it shouldn't have been
