Here are some I like:

Gravity: Used to be a commercial newsreader, but has been released to public

http://lightning.prohosting.com/~tba....html#download

Screen Calipers: for measuring things on your screen

http://www.iconico.com/caliper/

Color Picker: like an eyedropper for picking up colors anywhere on your screen in any program

http://www.iconico.com/colorpic/

Process Explorer: Better than hitting ctrl-alt-delete to see what's running, or kill a program.

http://www.sysinternals.com/

Internet Sweeper: for cleaning out cookies, cache, etc. You pick what it cleans

http://www.bmesite.com/

Diskeeper Lite: Free version of their defrag software. Limited to manual use, one drive at a time.

Diskeeper is supposed to be quicker and better because it leaves space for some files to expand. Also, it will only defrag up to a point that it thinks is necessary. Run it again right after that, and it will take it further (sometimes). I've read about Diskeeper for years, and the reviews seemed to think that this is a good way to defrag.

BTW, I've only used it on a Win98 computer a few times. So not much testing on my part yet.

I just ran across a free program called Guidescope . It looks pretty useful, and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it.

I use it and really like it. I think I've mentioned it a few times in the forums, so a forum search should get you something...

Thanks for the link Ed, I used to use SpyBlocker for the same purpose but it turned into shareware and kept crashing on me anyway.

I guess I didn't just find it. In fact, I questioned the compatibility issue with XP once before. But at my age, I only remember what happened long ago.

This is a very cool program, David! Thanks for the tip.

I just downloaded it and turned a CD track into a WAV file. You're right - it works great!
