As some of you know, I am more a Mac person than a PC person. Some time ago
I saw an article that described various shareware programs that one can get
for a PC that will add some features Mac users have and miss on the PC.
Regardless of being MAC or PC oriented, I think both of these are worth
mentioning, if you do not already know them and I am simply that last one at
the party :-)
This is a very very sweet system info utility that will show you everything
you ever wanted to know about your pc software and hardware but never knew
where to get it. You can do a memory speed test R/W and it ranks relative to
various other computers. Consolidates all your software registration
numbers... Startup items... Links to the various component manufacturers....
More than I can possibly use or describe. This one is free and so far I
would say it is the most useful utility I have found for the PC.
SPX instant screen capture
I have tried a few screen capture utilities, but this one is the cleanest
and most useful I have found so far. Basically, when it is runny, you can
click and hold the RMB and you get a crosshair cursor. You then can select
the area of the screen you want to capture - instantly you get a save
dialogue to name and set the file type. Many additional options for emailing
instantly or to simply capture the active window. A companion product has
the ability to add text, combine images etc. in a very simple and fast way.
It is a free 15 day trial, and the cost is about 30USD I think (I am still
on the trial but will buy it)
Just thought I would share this little discoveries that made my life a
little better ;-))
