    1. Vista Smoker Pro

    If you're looking to juice up Vista's performance, give this tool a try. It's designed to help you optimize the way that Vista runs, from memory to hard disk operations to the basic interface. Very little escapes this program's notice. Want to optimize Vista for game play? The GameBoost feature will shut down services and free up RAM and CPU cycles for you. You can also optimize your CD drive, improve your system's graphics performance, shut down unwanted services, and tweak Internet Explorer to your heart's content. If you dislike Vista's intrusive User Account Control feature, you can use this program to change UAC's behavior. Vista Smoker Pro even lets you remove arrows from shortcut icons on your desktop--talk about attention to detail! If you don't want to get down and dirty with manual performance tweaking, let the Auto Tuner featuredo the job for you. One note of caution: It's a good idea to create a restore point before using this program; that way, if anything goes awry, you can return to an untroubled (albeit considerably slower) version of the OS.

    2. Systerac Tools for Vista


    Your everything-including-the-kitchen-sink performance tool for Vista is this medley of utilities from Systerac. Among the tools bundled here are a memory optimizer, a disk doctor, a Registry backup program, a Registry optimizer, a shutdown scheduler, an Internet booster, a startup manager--and that's just the beginning. You'll also find a file shredder and a nifty tool that displays a complete list of all your hardware. That's the good news. Now the bad news: Systerac was perhaps overgenerous in its use of nag screens that pop up whenever you want to use one of the program's features, urging you to make the buy. The trial is good for 14 days, but the importuning starts right away. If you can put up with it, however, you'll find that this a useful program.

    3. Mz Vista Force


    Here's a free--and very accomplished--Vista tweaker. Use it to accelerate performance, juice your browsing speed, clean up your hard disk, clear out bandwidth-wasting startup programs, and even fine-tune Windows Media Player and Explorer. Many of the settings here are exceedingly fine-grained. Want to change the speed at which the Start menu search displays? With Mz Vista Force, you can. The program is free--and considering how many tools it brings to the party, it's an irresistible download.

    4. Vista Manager


    This Vista tweaker from Yamicsoft may be the most powerful one of the bunch. More than a single program, it serves as an umbrella uniting many utilities in a single interface. Whether you want to speed up your system, repair it, optimize Internet Explorer, enhance security, or adjust the way your network works, you'll find something here that can do the job. Vista Manager also lets you customize just about every part of the Desktop, Start menu, and Taskbar, as well as your icons. A Registry defragmenter and cleaner provides a final dollop of usefulness.

    5. TweakVista



    As its name implies, Stardock's TweakVista lets you alter and fine-tune Vista in countless ways. A blessedly simple and well-designed interface makes tweaking easy. You can see what programs run at startup, how much RAM each currently running program uses, and what Vista security parameters are now in force. One particularly useful feature is the Services module, which enables you to switch various Vista services on or off, depending on how you want to use your PC. Another utility in the TweakVista tool box lets you customize how User Account Control works. For a free program, this one is hard to beat. A full version, priced at $19.95, offers benchmarking, analysis of system startup and shutdown, and similar features. But for the basics, the free version works just fine.

    6. Vista Boot Logo Generator


    Tired of seeing the same old boot screen every time you start up Windows Vista? Become ennui-free with this nifty free program. It lets you replace your boot screen with one that you create yourself from scratch, or with a graphic that you find online. You'll have to create or find the image in two sizes: 1024 by 768 pixels, and 800 by 600 pixels. Both must be in .bmp format, at 24-bit color depth. Once you have them, though--and plenty available via a search on Google--this program very deftly replaces you boot screen with them.

    7. LogonStudio Vista


    Facing the same boot logo screen every day isn't the only repetitve experience that can render your visits to Vista mundane and joyless. Having to see the same log-on screen every time may have the same deleterious effect on a sensitive psyche as overexposure to French Symbolist poetry. But Stardock's LogonStudio Vista gives you the power to triumph over your tedious log-on screen. It's exceptionally easy to use: Pick a graphic already stored on your PC, create a new one, or download a prefabricated log-on screen from the Web site associated with this program. Then tell Windows Vista to use the new log-on screen--and prepare to bask in the new.

    8. EasyBCD



    Longtime Windows XP users may remember that changing the way XP booted in multiboot systems required them merely to do a little digging and then edit a boot.ini file. With Windows Vista, unfortunately, that approach is no longer possible, because a well-nigh incomprehensible command line program called BCDEdit rules the roost. But EasyBCD from NeoSmart Technologies serves as a front-end to BCDEdit, enabling you to change all of the important settings on your multiboot PC. This free program comes with a diagnostics and troubleshooting tool as well, to help you recover from a multiboot system gone bad. A word of advice: You should be familiar with multiboot menus before using this program, so you don't do your system any damage.

    9. VistaBootPro


    Here's an even stronger tool for hacking multiboot menus, with more options than EasyBCD. One especially nice feature of ProNetwork's VistaBootPro is that it lets you back up all of your boot information--to a locale called the BCD store--before you begin making any changes. That way, you'll be able to restore your system more easily if things go wrong. With VistaBootPro, you can change the order of the boot menu that appears when your PC starts, set any operating system to be the default, rename any OS list entries, and change how long the menu displays before your default operating system kicks in. Among the more esoteric features are options to debug the boot process, to enable or disable the boot GUI mode, and to allow or disallow the use of unsigned drivers in the 64-bit version of Windows Vista.

  • 10. Vista Shortcut Overlay Remover


    People get annoyed at all kinds of seemingly minor things. Case in point: the arrows overlaid on shortcuts in Windows. These little arrows drive some people into fits of apoplexy. If you're such a person--or if you have very calmly and rationally determined that you'd simply rather not have your shortcuts defaced by those bleeping triangles--you can use the Vista Shortcut Overlay Remover (from Frameworkx) to eradicate them. VSOR gives you the power to remove shortcut arrows, or reduce their size and then restore them to their original size later (like when a notoriously warm precinct freezes over).

    11. Vista Battery Saver


    Few things are more frustrating than having your laptop run out of juice during a cross-country flight, or at your favorite café. This program promises to lessen the likelihood of experiencing those frustrations. It automatically deactivates Windows Aero and the Windows Sidebar when your laptop runs on battery power, which (according to the author) will extend battery life. Alternatively, you can have the program automatically turn off Aero or the Sidebar when your battery level drops below a limit that you specify.

    12. Feeds Plus


    Fans of the RSS blog reader built into Internet Explorer 7 need this program. It enables you to read all of your feeds from a single location, instead of having to read one feed at a time. This is especially useful for people like me who subscribe to dozens of feeds. Rather than wasting precious moments clicking from feed to feed, you'll find them all in a single location. And because IE 7's feed reader has exceptional filtering, sorting, and searching prowess, finding a specific blog item is still easy. Another treat: Feeds Plus will alert you when your favorite feeds have new content. This program works with Internet Explorer in Windows XP as well as with the version built into Windows Vista, so XP users will be happy with it, too.

  • 13. Window Clippings


    For capturing screen shots in Vista, Windows Clippings is just the ticket. It's available in free and for-pay ($10) versions, it's simple to use, it can save to an array of formats, and it includes a particularly important feature for capturing Vista screens--the ability to capture window shadows. To use it, press the Print Screen key, click the window you want to capture, and then double-click. You can instruct the program to prompt you each time to tell it where you want to save a file, or you can designate a specific folder to receive all screen shots. For basic screen captures, the free version works fine. But if you want to capture a mouse pointer, snag specific areas of your screen, or use a timer for taking screen shots, you'll have to pay.

    14. Windows Mail Attachment Extractor for Vista


    If you use Vista's Windows Mail program, and you often need to save files attached to e-mail messages, give this program a try. It simplifies the task of saving and managing e-mail attachments. You can, among other things, have the program extract only pictures, and you can then save those pictures in a specific directory every time. Or you can have it automatically extract document files into a specific directory. The program will also create a report of what it's done for you. If you don't need to manage a large number of attachments, don't bother with Windows Mail Attachment Extractor for Vista. But if you field a lot of them and want to extract them from a single folder, this program will help.

    15. ISO Recorder


    Here's one of those one-trick-pony downloads, that does its thing exceedingly well. ISO Recorder lets you burn .iso files to CD or DVD. An .iso file is single, large file that--when burned to a CD or DVD--contains many files, a file system, and data, and that can be used to install an operating system. For example, Windows Vista betas were made available as .iso files; if you wanted to install the beta, you had to download the .iso file, burn it to DVD, and then boot from the DVD to install the unfinished version of Vista. In some instances .iso files can be used for other purposes, such as creating music or video, but ISO Recorder won't create images of audio or video CDs. The program can create .iso files as well as burn them. It integrates itself directly into Windows Explorer. Right-click an .iso file, and then follow the instructions to burn it to CD or DVD.

    Want to put Windows Vista on a diet? This clever freebie will let you remove Vista components that are otherwise untouchable. It also lets you tweak Vista in various ways, such as turning Aero on even if your hardware says it can't be run. Once you've switched off components and tweaked the operating system to your heart's content, vLite helps you create a Vista installation DVD containing your new stripped-down operating system; and you install it from there. Warning: Don't use this program unless you feel very comfortable with a high degree of techiness and customization.

  • 19. TweakUAC


    What's the biggest annoyance that Windows Vista have to deal with? Hands-down, it's User Account Control (UAC), which nags at you to enter a password or click OK every time you make certain changes or perform certain actions. You can turn UAC off in Vista if you'd like, but that leaves your system vulnerable. So you might prefer to turn it on at times and off at other times. TweakUAC, from Winability Software, solves the problem neatly. It lets you quickly and easily switch UAC on and off. Better yet, it lets you put UAC into "quiet mode," which in essence turns off UAC for administrators but keeps it on for everyone else. The program is free, and it fixes a big-time Vista annoyance. What more could you ask of it?

    20. Windows Help Program for Windows Vista


    In Windows Vista, Microsoft introduced one often-overlooked change that has proved to be a significant annoyance for people who use older Windows programs: The new operating system won't read Help files saved in .hlp format. So what do you do if you have a program that uses .hlp files, or if you download and informational files in .hlp format from the Internet? You use this program. Download it, and it will let you read .hlp files from the unfriendly confines of a Vista OS. Not an earth-shaking download, certainly, but a highly practical one nevertheless

    Make incremental backups automatically on your Vista Home Premium PC with this tool.

    Vista Ultimate's Shadow Copy automatically backs up different versions of the files you save, so you can easily revert to one of them. To get the same protection in Vista Home Premium, look no further than the freeware utility FileHamster from Mogware. Each time you save a file, FileHamster prompts you to add a comment to annotate that version and (optionally) to protect it from deletion.

    Microangelo Toolset
    Wednesday, October 24, 2007 5:01 PM

    38. Microangelo Toolset 6.10.8



    With four extremely intuitive icon-processing utilities, Microangelo Toolset works like the Swiss Army knife of icon and cursor manipulation. Its Studio and Animator components let you create and edit icons and cursors, while the Explorer and Librarian components help you find and manage icons on your system. For producing high-quality custom icons and cursors quickly, it's hard to beat this top-rated utility.


    The program includes image-editing features such as effects, filters, rotation, and cropping, as well as a huge color palette. Each component performs specific functions, but it might be less intimidating to first-time users if they were bundled in one interface. The Studio/Animator and Explorer/Librarian combinations seem ripe for integration into two tools. The extensive help files, which now include specific valuable information about creating icons for Windows Vista, are quite beneficial for users who need to familiarize themselves with the program's many features.


    There aren't step-by-step wizards for novices, but the addition of project templates in version 6 make it easier to create the full icon sets you need. Also lacking is an uninstall icon, so to remove it you have to go through the Control Panel. Nevertheless, would-be designers willing to learn and power users alike should appreciate the wide range of Microangelo's functionality.

  • 41. Launchy

    Launch programs, documents, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes.

    Vista's new Start menu lets you hit the Windows key, type a few letters until a match to your application of choice is discovered, and then press for a quick launch.

    If that sounds easier than digging through the Start menus and submenus and you don't want Vista right now (or you have Vista but want the Classic Start menu), check out Launchy, open-source software from Josh Karlin. Launchy stays out of your way (invisible), until you press - (or other hotkey combination you choose). A small, skinnable command-line window appears, and when you type a few letters, Launchy anticipates your target file and displays it (and other alternatives).

    As soon as the file you want appears in the window, just press . Launchy lets you customize the directories searched as well as the file types launched (so you can use it to open pictures or music files, for example, not just applications). All this and it's free!

  • 42. ActualDoc Standard

    Windows' Recent Documents menu would be a great convenience if some thought went into making it practical; Flexigensoft put that thought into Actualdoc.

    Windows' Recent Documents menu is a great idea, badly executed. Microsoft still hasn't figured out that this list should be filtered by file type, or that you might appreciate some privacy.

    Luckily, Flexigensoft figured it out and offers a better Recent Documents called ActualDoc. The free program offers two ways to find a recently-used file. You can right-click the systray icon for lists by category--Documents, Internet Documents, Drawings and Images, and so on. Or you can double-click that icon for the full-fledged program, where you can narrow the selection still further by date and file type (such as Word documents and text files).

    Security options clear Windows' Recent list and password-protect ActualDoc.

  • 43. PureText


    A fast and easy way to paste plain text--without all that formatting, into any Windows program.

    I try to keep the number of autoloading programs down to a bare minimum, but I couldn't go without PureText in my systray.


    When you paste text into almost any Windows program, you get both text and formatting. But more often than not, all you really want is text.


    PureText gives you that option. Once you have this little freebie running in the background, you can strip all formatting out of the clipboard's text and insert it into your current application by simply pressing a user-defined hotkey.

    44. Command Burner


    Burning files and folders to CD or DVD shouldn't be difficult, and while Command Burner can't handle all of Nero's tricks, it manages the basics quickly and easily.

    Burning files to a CD or DVD shouldn't be difficult. And it isn't with Cortex IT's free program. This one dialog box solution lets you select the file or folder you want on the disc, then just click Burn.


    Command Burner has its problems. You can't drag a file or folder to the program. And the only way to burn more than one file is to burn the contents of a folder. And this is not a tool for burning music or movies. But if the job is data-oriented and simple, Command Burner is far easier than Nero, Easy Media Creator, or Windows' own burning tools.

  • Actual Search & Replace coming right ahead...

    Tuesday, November 20, 2007 5:51 PM

    45. Actual Search & Replace



    Every word processor and email program lets you search and relace text in a single file; Actual Search & Replace lets you do it across a folder or drive.

    We've all searched for and replaced text in our spreadsheets and word processing documents, but we're limited to working on one file at a time. Actual Search & Replace lets you do this most basic of computer chores on multiple files, searching your hard drive (or a select folder) for any file containing the offending text string so you can turn it into something else.


    DivlocSoft's shareware program lets you search by phrase, all of the entered words, any of the entered words, or by using a Google-like syntax. It displays the names of found files, info on them, and the search string in context. You can replace the found text, or insert the new text before or after it.

    You can even automate the process by creating projects.
