Default Re: Useful programs and tips

This is the topic to end help those that want free software to repair or optimize their computer.
Virus/Trojan/Worm Tools
This is a major problem in the world of computers today.
Here are three sites that provide free virus, worm, and trojan scanning and can remove them if not you can remove it manually:
Trend Micro
eTrust
Panda Software
For Online Scanning, make sure only one window is open and other background programs are closed such as music, games,etc.
I also recommend a progam that updates regularly and is suffecient:
Grisoft AVG FREE EDITION
*Must update manually and some removals require manual labor.
Privacy Tools
Here are some tools that clean the tracks of where you went on the internet and protect you from violation of others.
*Clear cache, history, recycle bin and delete junk files
Secret Maker
*A tool that blocks popups, clears cache, etc
CCleaner
*Another useful tool that cleans cache and temperorary files:
Window Washer
*If your just looking for a popup blocker here you go:
EndPopups
Firewall
Prevent Hackers from taking over your computer.
ZoneAlarm
*Its very usefull but is restricted from full features
Sygate
*Equal to the features and abilities of ZoneAlarm.
Adware/Spyware
Many of the programs you have may send private information back to other people and slow down your computer performance.
Ad-Aware SE
Click Ad-Aware Professional and download
*This tools removes adware and has some good plugins
Spybot SD with Tea Timer
Download Spybot-Search and Destroy version x.x.
*Very good program for protection against spyware, removal of spyware, and monitors system changes such as registry, internet, software,etc.
Ram
Low Ram? No problem, here is a tool that will improve ram performance. Note: You can't add more RAM to your computer unless you upgrade your computer with new chips and gizmos.
FreeRam XP Pro
*This tool will defrag your ram and optimize it to your level.
Registry
Registry Mechanic
*A tool that scans the registry for free. To remove the errors:
1)Click Start
2)Click Run
3)Type "regedit" don't include the quotations ""
4) Locate the error based on their name manually and remove them
ErrorNuker
*This is an old tool that scans the registry and repairs it free
Useful Websites
DSL REPORTS
*A good website to test your connection, compare your speed to others, tweak your internet connection, and other speed tools.
Microsoft
*Make sure your update your window files and get your latest internet explorer.
Macromedia Shockwave
*Stand alone installers of all the latest shockwave and other macromedia/adobe products.
BackingUp Your Windows
*Many people have been screwed by many problems because they don't back up their windows. To avoid anymore complications and wipe away every bit of information:
1)Insert Your Windows CD (Comes With Your PC)in to the CD DRIVE.
2)Click the physical restart button.
3)Bootup from the CD after restarting your computer using the bootfromCDdrive feature.
4)Delete all the information in each drive or delete the drives completely by deleting every partition.
5)Format the deleted partions. I sugguest formatting the drive that your going to install all your windows files in the FAT32 format.
6)Now that your partitions are formatted install all your windows files in the drive you desire.
7)Once it copies all the files in the drive is should reboot and start installing the windows
8)Once the windows is done you will now have a clean legit start from scratch.
9)Get yourself a backup tool like Symantec/Norton Ghost.
a)Copy All Files From the CD to a drive/partition that doesn't have your windows files. example: you installed your windows files in drive C, copy all the Files from the Symantec/Norton Ghost disk to DriveD.
10)Back up the drive that you installed all your windows files in exriveC by using the Symantec/Norton Ghost. Before you install any programs or do any further harm to your computer, but the Norton/Symantec disk into your drive and boot it using bootfromCDdrive feature. Then create an image of the parition that has all your windows files and place the image or symantec/ghost file that contains a backup of your drive into another drive that is not occupied by your windows files and is not your main partition were all the important data is story, according to the example it would be DriveD.
11)Now once you have made a backup of DriveC, now restart your computer and install all the junk that will cause you harm. Now since you have a fresh start, I sugguest you download, copy all the important programs, documents,etc you have to your DriveD. If you have a document, program, image, video, etc that is important and you need it definetely than save/store it in the drive that doesn't contain the windows files, in my case DriveD.
12)Any time you need a fresh start just load the Symantec/Norton ghost using the bootfromCDdrive feature and choose the option load from an image/backup file and just select the file that should be stored in a drive that doesn't contain useful information and/or the windows files. Load up the image/backup file and wait till it finishes restoring the partition. Now your back at the start.
Useful Tips

This is all i have to offer for now
If you have any programs or requests please post them and if you have a good program or tip i'll credit you. I hope this topic will help the unexperience users and ignorant computer users of the sfo community and cut alot of topics down.
This top will be update atleast once a month and any update on any good programs will be posted.
Optimize Computer Tips:
*Run Scanning Tools atleast once a week to make sure your system is in good shape.
*Update your windows
*Clean your cache daily
*Use Windows Defrag and Discklean up atleast once a month.
Optimize SFO performance:
*Ram 512+
*Close all background programs beside explorer.exe
*Broadband,Cable,Fiber connection
*Processor of 2.0 GHz
*Decent Video Card (not sure if needed)
**If you have a windows install disk, try reinstalling the windows using the upgrade/repair option. Do not clean install unless you need to. Reinstalling windows will update system files and speed will speak for itself.
