Error Lookup

Program: Error Lookup Version:2.1
Author: Henry++
Website: [ http://www.henrypp.org/product/errorlookup ]
Download: [ 361 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Portable open source tool which can help by translating error codes into a more meaningful text description. The interface is simple - just a box to type your code, and another which displays the details - so there doesn’t seem much to learn. The program also supports a wide range of codes: regular Windows errors, DirectX, NTSTATUS errors, Windows Internet errors, STOP codes, And we think it can probably be configured to read more (Settings > System modules), although there’s no documentation to confirm that and we didn’t test it. The lightweight application is less than a megabyte, and it is compatible with Windows XP SP3 and higher operating systems. You can download either the installer or portable version.

O&O ShutUp10

Program: O&O ShutUp10 Version:1.0
Author: O&O
Website: [ http://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10 ]
Download: [ 108 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Windows 10 wants to give users the easiest possible daily experience and in doing so very rarely forces you to actually read and confirm a security notice. Unfortunately, this simplified approach from Microsoft means much more data is passed onto them than many users would like. Microsoft uses most data to display personalized information to you that is aimed at making your computer life easier. As an example, Windows 10 can remind you to set off to the airport 30 minutes earlier due to traffic en route. In order to deliver this information to you, however, Windows 10 has to access your calendar entries, your mails (i.e. the airline confirmation email), your location and it has to have access to the internet to get traffic news. Some services protocol your entire keyboard entries, share your WLAN access data with your facebook contacts or connect your computer without asking permission to a public – and potentially unprotected – network. While this means that you and your contacts do not have to grapple with complicated WLAN passwords, it also poses a significant security risk. Decide for yourself how important your “comfort” is when weighed up with your privacy and how to protect it. O&O ShutUp10 presents you with all important settings in one location – you need no previous IT knowledge and there is no need to manually change the Windows 10 system settings. O&O ShutUp10 is entirely free and does not have to be installed – it can be simply run directly and immediately on your PC. And it will not install or download retrospectively unwanted or unnecessary software, like so many other programs do these days!

Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater

Program: Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater Version:1.1
Author: pXc-coding
Website: [ http://pxc-coding.com/portfolio/alternative-flash-player-auto-updater/ ]
Download: [ 813 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater is a a software updater for Adobe’s Flash Player. Flash is one of the key technologies of Web 2.0 – you can find it nearly everywhere. Commonly used technologies are always a main target for malware authors – Flash Player is not different. Adobe frequently releases security updates to fix the latest security vulnerabilities. However, Flash Player’s out-of-box updater uses long time intervals between update checks. Most endusers do not bother to configure the internal updater – they run outdated Flash Player versions. Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater was developed to offer an easy to use application for inexperienced endusers who do not want to bother with updates. It can install updates with no user interaction required and thus keep your system secure without bothering you. Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater offers many features for single- and corporate users like automatical update checks with a custom time interval. Also, it allows corporate users to use a remote configuration and thereby avoid configuring every single client. Another feature is the configuration of administrator credentials required for the installation – Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater stores them, the users need not even know or enter credentials.

Profile Relocator

Program: Profile Relocator Version:1.03
Author: Joseph Cox
Website: [ http://software.bootblock.co.uk/?id=profilerelocator ]
Download: [ 298 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Profile Relocator is a step-based application that allows the re-locating of the Windows Users profile directory. Once re-located, any created profiles will appear in the new location in their entirety. The advantage to doing this allows profiles to be stored in a location that doesn't reside on the system drive, ensuring that profile data isn't compromised as a result of re-installation or system failure. Profile Relocator has been designed to work with Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Please note that this application should ideally be used on new installations of Windows; PR should be used, and then the final profile should be created. See the included documentation for step-by-step information. PR will not move existing profiles as this can be dangerous.

Trust-No-Exe

Program: Trust-No-Exe Version:3.04
Author: Craig Peacock
Website: [ http://retired.beyondlogic.org/solutions/trust-no-exe/trust-no-exe.htm ]
Download: [ 255 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows NT/2k/XP
Description: An executable filter for Windows NT/2000/XP. Trust-no-exe is a executable file filter. It attaches to the operating system and filters all executable files, be it .exe .com .dll .drv .sys .dpl etc from all drives and all network shares against a list of files or paths, you, the administrator provide as trusted applications. If a prohibited executable (one not in the allow list or one explicitly defined in the deny list) is loaded, a popup box informs the user with an intelligent message that can be customised to your site. As Trust-no-exe will only allow executables to load from your allow list, enabling execution from files in c:\winnt\ (or c:\windows on XP), and c:\program files\ and by using normal file permission to restrict the write-ability of these folders, you can very quickly obtain a system which only allows authorised programs which you have installed to be executed, while still allowing normal access (all but execution) to other files.
