7+ Taskbar Tweaker 4.4.6
7+ Taskbar Tweaker 4.4.6 This programs enables you to tweak your Windows 7 taskbar. A tool that allows you to: Reorder items within a tab group (drag n' drop). Group/ungroup/show label/hide label per Application ID. Close/minimize/etc. multiple windows at once. Change Application ID of windows (that is, grouping whatever windows you want). You can open it from the tweaker main window, from it's tray menu, or optionally by double/middle clicking the empty space of the taskbar. Change Info: Fixed the list_reverse_order advanced option for cases where the list contains lots of items and scrolling arrows are added. Fixed, when using mouse wheel volume control: if a dialog other than the volume control is open (e.g. the Volume Mixer), mouse scroll didn't bring it to front. Added a short delay before checking for an update. This might have fixed a crash which occurred when the PC woke up. Fix: after clicking on the taskbar, volume control was launched even if the mouse is not inside the taskbar. Fix: some windows couldn't be restored from the minimized state.

DTaskManager v1.55.1
DTaskManager v1.55.1 DTaskManager, obviously, is a Task-Manager, but specifically engineered to give additional functionalities that the Windows bundled TaskManager (and other third party products) do not have: 1. Three different ways to close a process, as the "termination request", the standard "forced termination" with dialogue tolerance, and the "forced termination" of any type of process, bypassing all permissions (it can also terminate running system processes). 2. DTaskManager allows you to suspend and reactivate a process (as in Linux). This is useful, for example, to temporarily suspend a task that uses system resources when you don't want to terminate it (such as a DivX encoding process). 3. DTaskManager allows you to select more than one process at a time, and terminate all of them "simultaneously". 4. DTaskManager does not need any useless confirmation. (Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Seven/8/Win10)

Edge Blocker 1.4
Edge Blocker 1.4 Easily block or unblock the Edge browser in Windows 10 so no apps can launch it. Be sure to change your default browser first. The interface is pretty basic, and you can only block or unblock the Edge browser, so no super skills are required to work with it , once you’ve blocked the browser, it won’t load even if you — or an app — tries to launch it. If your Windows user account has administrator privileges, the restriction takes place at the system level, so all users are impacted. On the other hand, standard user accounts can only block Edge on their own account. What is new: (Tuesday, 25. April 2017) [Fixed] – EDGE Blocker Corrupt Microsoft EDGE in “Windows 10 version 1703” Most probably it is a Microsoft BUG – Critical

Hotcorner 1.3
Hotcorner 1.3 Hotcorner lets you add GNOME-like Hot Corners to Windows. From Author: In GNOME 3 whenever you move the mouse to the top left corner, GNOME switches to the activities view, it looks like this: Whenever I'm using Windows 10, I always forget that this doesn't work. Bleh. I searched around for existing solutions, and wasn't happy with anything I could find. The options seem to be Some ridiculous AutoHotKey monstrosity (?!?). Massive Delphi application with 100MB of resources. Some naive program that polls GetCursorPos() in a busy loop. None of these are what I want, I just want that GNOME 3 thing with absolute minimal overhead. This is a very minimal hotcorner app, written in C. You can adjust parameters, delays, bindings easily and recompile. Zero state is stored anywhere, no registry keys or configuration files. If you want to configure something, edit the code and recompile. If you want to uninstall it, just delete it.

Pleasant Windows 10
Pleasant Windows 10 Improve Windows 10 with one-click batch files. Zip File is password protected. Password is joern. Pleasant Windows 10 is a collection of one-click batch files by Ghacks reader Joern that improve the operating system in various ways. While there are plenty of tweaking and privacy tools out there for Windows 10, all have in common that you cannot verify any of the operations before they are executed. This may not be an issue for some users, but if you want full control of what is happening in this regard, you may prefer a solution that is more open. Batch files are ideal for that, as they open in any plain text editor. You may then go through them line by line to verify what they do before executing them. Another benefit of this approach is that you may adjust the batch file as you see fit. This is especially useful if multiple changes are made by it to the system. Note: It is recommended that you create a system restore point, or a backup before you run any of the tweaks. While you can verify what they do by opening them in a plain text editor, it is always better to be on the safe side and create a backup so that you can restore the system to a previous state should things go wrong. Note 2: We recommend that you check the batch files before you run them, as you may adjust them as you see fit. You may not want some settings or features changed for instance. The following batch files are included in the archive Advanced Explorer Settings -- This changes more than a dozen File Explorer related settings on Windows 10 that turn of animations, enable menus, or turn off things like Toasts.

Portable Update 2.5.1
Portable Update 2.5.1 Portable Update is a windows-base tool for updating a Microsoft Windows computer in a isolated environment. This is useful in many circumstances: Portable Update Hystory tag When the computer reside on a secure lan isolated from internet; When the computer to update doesn’t have access or can't use a proxy server; When is necessary to completely update a fresh-formatted computer with the last update before to connect it to network; When the computer doesn’t have an hardware network connection at all; When the network connection speed is too low or it is necessary to update the computer very quickly; In all the other cases when is mandatory to have the complete control on the updating process without connecting the computer to the network. How it works? To update an isolated computer, Portable Update use an external cache to store updates. The cache can reside on any usb external drive or, via private lan network, on a shared path. Once an update is copied to the cache (the only time that an internet connection is required), the same update will be used for all computer that need that particular update. You'll never download twice the same file to update different computers or for updating many times the same computer. For example, consider that the dimension of one single update can reach and exceed 1 GByte! Once the update is stored into the cache folder , the program will use standard Windows Update API services to update your computer. Different updates from different operating systems can reside on the same cache folder because they are individually identified. ...

Remove Windows Store Apps Script
Remove Windows Store Apps Script Remove Windows Store apps in Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Introduction This script can be used to remove multiple Windows Store apps from a user account in Windows. It provides a list of installed Windows Store apps. You can specify the application IDs, and remove them all at once. Scenarios In Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, you can remove a single Windows Store app by right-clicking the tile in the Start menu and choosing the uninstall command. However, no command is provided for removing multiple Windows Store apps all at once. If you want to do so, you can use this script sample. Sometimes Windows Store apps may crash in Windows 8. Even though you can successfully uninstall and reinstall the app, the app may still crash after the reinstallation. In this situation, you can use this example script to remove these Windows Store apps cleanly. Script Step 1: Move the cursor to the top right corner of the screen, click Search, type PowerShell, right-click the Windows PowerShell app tile, and then, on the app bar, click Run as administrator. Examples Example 1: How to display help about the script You can type the command Get-Help C:\Script\RemoveWindowsStoreApp.ps1 -Full to display the entire help file for this function, such as the syntax, parameters, or examples.

Remove Windows XP End of Life Messages Utility
Remove Windows XP End of Life Messages Utility On April 8th 2014, Microsoft ended all support for Windows XP. They then released a number of Windows Updates that displays annoying messages on your desktop telling you that your operating system is now at its end of life. This is the Windows message: The second is the Microsoft Security Essentials one: We have been asked a number of times about how to remove these and we have now created a new utility that will help you to do this. (Download at bottom of page) CONSIDERATIONS There is one problem with removing the Microsoft Security Essentials end of life message. If you have already installed Version 4.5.216.0 then you cannot remove this message. Also, eventually, your system will update to this version so the best thing to do is to uninstall MSE and install another free anti-virus like Avast or Avira. If you have not yet installed Version 4.5.216.0 then this utility will work for you for the MSE part. The Windows end of life message should be able to be removed without issue using this utility. You must have Dot Net 2.0 installed for this to work. INSTRUCTIONS Once you have downloaded the file you should run the executable file to start the utility. You will then be presented with a utility that looks like this: You should then click the buttons on the right hand side in relation to what you want to do. So, if you want to remove the Windows message, click the top button, if you want to remove the MSE message, click the bottom button. Once you have done this, you should reboot your machine and you should now notice that the messages have not reappeared.

RemoveWGA 1.2 Remove Microsoft Windows Genuine Advantage
A small utility that enables you to remove the Microsoft Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications tool RemoveWGA will enable you to easily remove the Microsoft \\\"Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications\\\" tool, which is calling home and connect to MS servers every time you boot. Futures updates of this notification tool will (officialy) setup the connection rate to once every two weeks. Once the WGA Notification tool has checked your OS and has confirmed you had a legit copy, there is no decent point or reason to check it again and again every boot. Moreover, connecting to Microsoft brings security issue for corporate networks, and privacy issues for everyone. It is also unclear which information are transmitted (Microsoft published an official answer, but an individual study brought some questions). All of that, along the fact that Microsoft used deceptive ways to make you install this tool (it was told you it was an urgent security update, whereas it is a new installation giving you no extra security) makes me calling this tool a spyware. Also, Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications is different than Windows Genuine Advantage Validation. RemoveWGA only removes the notification part, phoning home, and does not touch the Validation part. Note: Some antivirus and antispyware programs flag RemoveWGA as being infected/malware, although the application is perfectly safe and does not pose a threat to your system. This is called a \\\'false positive\\\'. The term false positive is used when antivirus software wrongly classifies an innocuous ( inoffensive ) file as a virus. The incorrect detection may be due to heuristics or to an incorrect virus signature in a database. [Similar problems can occur with antitrojan or antispyware software.] Here are some key features of \\\"RemoveWGA\\\": · Tell you if the WGA notification tool is active on your system · Allows you to remove the WGA notification tool from your ...

ShellMenuView 32bit v1.30
ShellMenuView 32bit v1.30 ShellMenuView is a small utility that display the list of static menu items that appeared in the context menu when you right-click a file/folder on Windows Explorer, and allows you to easily disable unwanted menu items. System Requirements ShellMenuView works properly on any version of Windows starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 10. You can also use ShellMenuView on Windows 98 for viewing the menu items list, but the disable/enable feature won't work on this version of Windows. (The disabling feature is achieved by adding 'LegacyDisable' key to the desired menu item in the Registry, and this Registry key is not supported by Windows 98) Some of the menu items in the context menu of Explorer are created dynamically using shell extensions. In these cases, you can use the ShellExView utility to disable them. Versions History Version 1.30 Fixed the extension column: For Menu items that are currently not assigned to any file extension, the extension column now remains empty. Added 'UserChoice Key' column. If the value is 'Yes', it means that the reference to the menu item is found in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\[File Extension]\UserChoice Added 'Registry Key' column. Added 'Hide Items Without File Extension' option.

shutdownBlocker 1.2.2
shutdownBlocker 1.2.2 shutdownBlocker.exe is simple program that intercepts and blocks shutdown / restart / logoff commands. It protects from user mistakes, poorly designed installers (those lacking a 'restart later' option), and even windows itself (looking at you, 10). It works by registering a ShutdownBlockReasonCreate() reason and objecting to WM_QUERYENDSESSION messages. It can optionally be set to consume all calls to shutdown.exe and MusNotification.exe (among other things, this blocks Windows 10 Update restarts); but this requires running the app as an administrator. A full rundown on how this stuff works is below the changelog. Usage Notes Requirements: .NET Framework 4.0 or better; Get it from Microsoft. Instructions: Unpack the app to a folder; run it. (A settings file will be created in the program folder.) Then click the Block or Allow button. If you wish to block shutdown.exe or MusNotification.exe restarts (to suppress Windows Update restarts), you will need to run the program as an administrator. As of v1.2 We automatically ask the OS for this (you'll get a UAC prompt); The app will also warn you if it's not been run as a admin. The program must be kept running to work. You can send it to the notification tray by using the 'Hide' button, the escape key, or if upper right close button. Optionally you can hide the tray icon (in settings) for completely invisible operation. You can have the program start up automatically via a check-box in settings; this uses a scheduled task for auto-start. Remember though, if you move the app, you should re-create the scheduled task (Uncheck 'start with windows', hit ok, then check it again). Command Line Usage: -startHidden If an instance of the program is not already running, starts the program and immediately hides it. -block ...

Windows XP not supported StExBar requires Windows Vista or later. It won't work on Windows XP! StExBar provides many useful commands for your everyday use of Windows explorer. And you can add as many custom commands on your own as you like. The commands are not just available from the toolbar, but also via hotkeys and via a context menu! Have you ever needed to open a console window while you were using the explorer? And to have that console already set to the directory you're showing in explorer right now? Well, StExBar provides that with one simple mouseclick. There's also a hotkey defined for this: simply press Ctrl+M to open the console. A "lightweight" console is also available. Simply enter the command you like to execute into the edit box on the right of the StExBar and hit enter. The command will be executed in the system console. Have you ever needed to have the name or full path of one or more files in another application? Ctrl+C doesn't work here, that won't copy the file path but the file itself. StExBar comes to the rescue. It provides two commands, one to copy all selected file/foldernames to the clipboard, the other copies the whole paths of all selected items. To make it even more easier to use this, a hotkey is defined Ctrl+Shift+C which copies the selected paths. Creating new folders is a common task in explorer. But to actually do that, you have to right-click on a folder background, choose "New" from the context menu, wait until the submenu finally appears, then choose "Folder" from that submenu.

Unofficial Windows 98 Second Edition Service Pack 3.57
Unofficial Windows 98 Second Edition Service Pack 3.57 Microsoft has never released a service pack for Windows98 SE but this contains all Windows98 SE updates from Windows Update site and more. Instructions: Prerequisites: Minimum 64 MB of RAM for Main Updates. 160 MB free hard disk space for (ALL) options. Installation Guide: [1] Install Windows 98 Second Edition (with or without 98lite).* [2] Install all drivers for your hardware.

It will change core system files. It means that if something goes wrong you must be prepared to reinstall windows from the beginning. Sometimes installing U98SESP3.EXE after a fresh install is working normaly while it failed on an old install. 2/ You made a back up of all important datas.

Restoring windows 98 can be done simply be recopying all the system files back to their original location, in dos mode. The easiest way is to use a second physical (not a partition) and internal (not USB) hard drive.

Windows 10 Color Control 1.0.0.1
Windows 10 Color Control 1.0.0.1 Windows 10 allows you to customize the taskbar and start menu colors, but it provides only a limited set of predefined colors. In addition, no matter which color you’ll pick, the taskbar will end up being dark. I searched, but haven’t found a straightforward way to have a bright taskbar on Windows 10. Fortunately, I have discovered that there’s an undocumented registry key which makes explorer use an alternative color calculation algorithm, which in turn produces brighter colors. You can see the difference in the example image below. I wrote a quick application, Windows 10 Color Control, which allows you to modify the Windows 10 colors, and to get this alternative color calculation algorithm. The original Windows 10 calculation algorithm is referred to as the “New auto-color accent algorithm”, according to the undocumented registry value name. - RaMMicHaeL

Windows 10 DPI Fix 2.1
Windows 10 DPI Fix 2.1 When you have a widescreen, with a resolution of 1920x1080 or higher or a bit lower, in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 you would put your DPI scaling to 125% or higher to make text and images appear larger and more easy to read. But when you put the DPI scaling to 125% in Windows 10, you see in a lot of dialogs and windows the font gets very blurry. It does not matter if you are using the regular or custom Windows DPI scaling functions at your 'Screen properties'. Text will get blurry on 125%. You can test if you have this bug also if you put your DPI scaling to 125% at your 'Screen properties', then reboot Windows (or sign in again when it asks you). Then goto 'Control panel > Administrative tools > Services'. If you have this issue also you would see the titlebar of the Services window has a font scaled good. But the services list itself is very blurry/unsharp to read. The SIMPLE fix: Right-click on the shortcut to your application that has blurry fonts, then select 'Properties'. Then tab 'Compatibility'. Then enable 'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings' and hit 'Apply'. then restart your application, and you see it will look good. The DPI fix: Windows 10 is using another scaling method for DPI as in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1. At some point we can understand Windows why they changed the DPI scaling in Windows 10. It is probably ment to support mobile devices more easy. But if you like to use your Desktop as a Desktop, and you demand high quality only. Then you can use this fix until Microsoft has addressed this issue. This fix simple tells Windows 10 to use the original DPI scaling as it was in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and ...

Windows Update Blocker 1.0
Windows Update Blocker 1.0 Windows 10 offers less UI control over the updating behavior of the operating system than previous versions of Windows , There is no option to turn off Windows Updates using the Control Panel or Settings app in Windows 10, it checks for updates automatically and install any updates they find, whether you like it or not. This new feature is actually pretty convenient for most users. If you want control over the update process you can disable the Windows Update service . This requires that you open the Services manager, locate the service and change its startup parameter and status. You would then have to enable the service again whenever you want the operating system to check for updates (It does not look so easy). Windows Update Blocker is a freeware that helps you to completely disable or enable Automatic Updates on your Windows system , with just a click of the button . This utility is portable, which means that you are no longer required to go through the installation process and no leftovers will remain on the HDD after its removal. if you place the program file to an external data device, you make it possible to take Windows Update Blocker everywhere with you and use it on any computer you come in contact with, who has things configured just right, and doesn’t want to take the chance that an update might mess up their system.

Windows Update MiniTool 12.12.2016
Windows Update MiniTool 12.12.2016 Windows Update MiniTool is a free third-party client for searching for, installing and blocking updates for the Windows operating system. When it comes to updates for Windows, most devices running the Windows operating system are most likely updated through some form of first-party update service such as Windows Update. While it is comfortable to work with most of the time, some users may want better management options when it comes to updates for Windows. Windows Update MiniTool delivers that and more. The free portable program is provided as a 32-bit and 64-bit version which can be run from any location on the system. Its interface is divided into a sidebar that powers the program's functionality and a main pane that displays information about updates. The sidebar lists options to display available, installed and hidden updates, and the update history at the top. A click on any of the available items does not necessarily display information on the right as some are triggered by buttons displayed underneath the four entries. From left to right, those are: Query the update server. Download selected updates but don't install. Download and install selected updates. Uninstall selected updates. Hide (block) selected updates. Copy the information to the clipboard. While you can display the update history right away, all other entries are only populated when you click the update button after selection. Windows Update MiniTool queries Windows Update servers by default for information and populates the selected information afterwards. When you select Windows Update and hit the update button afterwards, all updates that are available for the system are displayed by it in its interface. Updates are divided into categories in which individual updates are listed in. Each update is listed with its name, category, ...

ZBar 0.82
ZBar 0.82 ZBar is a utility for those who use multiple monitors. If you have a single screen, then there's nothing to see here. Move on. If you have two or more monitors, then Windows only puts the task bar at the bottom of one of those monitors, and although you can move windows to the second monitor, the task bar button for those windows still lives at the bottom of the primary monitor. This doesn't "feel" right to me, so ZBar was born. Functionality ZBar will: Put a taskbar across the top or bottom of all non-primary screens with one or two rows of buttons, in six styles, with an optional clock Provide keyboard shortcuts to move windows one screen along Organise your desktop wallpaper one image per screen or one image across all screens Display a six month calendar, last month, this month, and four months ahead Versions v0.82 - 3rd March 2012 Only one instance of the app will run at a time Skype and Paint windows a little better handled Tweaked hyperlink opening code AM/PM shown in twelve hour displays Bug causing "Oops should not be here" to show in wallpaper dialog fixed Clicking the middle mouse button on a button closes that window Option to zoom images smaller than the monitor in wallpaper dialog MusicBee no longer handled - the window class it uses is not unique "Premiere Pro Monitor EchoPort" and "PSViewC" now fill the screen Choosing "None" in the keyboard hook now actually clears it Wallpaper previews could be displayed off the ...
