Defraggler v1.18.185 - Defraggler: The Best Substitute for Windows Disk Defragmenter

If you have been using windows long enough, you should know by now that windows disk defragmenter shipped with the OS is less than optimum solution for your disk defragmentation problem. Disk fragmentation, existing in all modern OS, does not effect system the way NTFS based windows system gets effected. Although with each iteration of windows OS fragmentation of system file has been minimized, it still possess a problem big enough for commercial Disk Defragmenter program to do a profitable business.

Diskeeper , which sells a dumbed down version of it’s program which gets shipped with Microsoft OS, along with PerfectDisk are the leading commercial defragmenter out there. While there has been many free alternative, nothing was good enough to rival their performance, until now. Defraggler is a free disk defragmenter, which is not only a free alternative to commercial counterparts but also very good at it’s job. Defraggler is brought to you by the same guys who made CCleaner (previous post), a useful file and registry cleaning software.

Defraggler works much like the same way CCleaner and most defragmenter’s work, first it analyzes the drive for fragmented files and folders and gives you and option to choose which file to defrag or not. Having a choice to defragment individual file is an option that is not available with any defragmenters I have tried, or I know of. It gives you status of the defrag process and the option to pause/start and restart whenever you feel like. Unlike window built-in defragmenter, using your computer while the program is running doesn’t effect it’s performance. Two things I would be looking forward for the upcoming version of Defraggler would be the option to schedule a job in a certain time and defragment on the fly in the background.

Give these 'supplements' to your PC now!

OS Requirements for Defraggler :

* OS: Win2000, Windows XP, 2003, Vista, Windows 7 – Including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Recent changes in Defraggler :

* Added ‘Empty recycle bin option’ before defrag.
* Improved placement of files around MFT.
* Fixed incorrect defrag button behavior (defrag checked and highlighted while using tabstop).
* Fixed crash occurring after pressing defrag button.
* Fixed tab order on cleanup drive dialog.
* Added Run Defraggler option after installation.
* Added Estonian support.

Photodex ProShow Gold 4.1.2737 (FREE) + keygen

For years I searched for a slide show program...something that would allow me to put images and music together and output it in a format that was cross platform compatible. I tried many, from simple consumer programs all the way to Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premier...then I found ProShow.

Photodex corporation makes both ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer, they are by far the best products for making slide shows from still images. I use Proshow Producer but you might be quite happy with ProShow Gold, it has almost all the features at a lower price, but you can download from this blog for FREE. No need to buy since i have the keygen.

Programs like Adobe Premier and Final Cut are best at working with video...they are very powerful, complicated and expensive. Since those programs are designed for video rather than still images, I always had trouble creating slide shows, and Quicktime movies which had good image quality. I spent a ton of money and countless hours trying to make them work. I don't know how Photodex does it, but still images look crisp, and beautiful when you create a slide show with ProShow. Unless you're making Hollywood movies, doing high-end videos and/or complex video editing, save yourself close to a thousand dollars and get Proshow instead of Final Cut or Premier.

With ProShow, I can easily create stunning slide shows for my homework, my friends and for posting on my blog. ProShow's simple interface lets you select photos and drop them in a "timeline". You can record your own voice-over track or add a soundtrack from a CD or an MP3 file. You can add motion and transition effects to but basically I use only a few, like cross dissolve, and cut. One of the best features is the ability to add the "Ken Burns Effect"...panning or zooming on a still image to give the feeling of video.

In terms of output, ProShow Gold gives you more options than most any other slide show software. You can burn DVDs and video CDs that play back on your TV, or stream your show on the Web (showing your ProShow programs on the web, requires the viewer to have the proshow plug-in, which may discourage some people).
ProShow Gold is a complete all-in-one tool for the slide show enthusiast. Whether you're just starting out, or a seasoned veteran, you'll find that ProShow Gold offers everything you need to create fun shows for friends and family. Best for making any slide show presentations.

Simply drag and drop your photos and videos onto the Slide List to add them to your show. Each slide can have an unlimited number of layers meaning you can create unique photo montages, add borders to images and more. You can even edit your video clips directly in ProShow Gold by using the built-in video trimmer. Use a transition to fade into the next slide for a seamless effect.


1. Use slide styles for Instant Effects

Slide Styles are pre-made effects that you can apply to any slide in your show. Just drop in you images, add a Slide Style and the rest is done for you. Slick, professional-looking effects in an instant. ProShow Gold comes with 50 must-have Slide Styles. You can also create, save and re-use your own Styles. Build up a library of styles or share styles with other ProShow users.

* One-click special effects
* 50 built-in Slide Styles
* Create and save your own Styles

2. Edit Photos & Create Custom Captions

ProShow Gold has a sea of built-in photo editing tools. Turn a color photo into black and white, adjust brightness or contrast, remove red-eye and more. You can also add custom captions to any slide in your show. Captions are great for cre a ting intro slides, adding descriptive captions to photos, creating scrolling credits and more.

* Easily remove red-eye from photos
* One-click auto fix for photos
* Add borders and drop shadows to any photo or video
* Set captions to any font, size, style and col or
* Add fun to your captions—choose from the expanded set of 100+ caption effects

CCleaner-The Best Free Registry Cleaner

Your computers registry is a database of important settings that dictate how certain aspects of your operating system and software run. However, computer are so complex, that your registry often fails to keep up with the current state of your computer perfectly. This happens as a normal part of computer use, but over time it can severely slow down your computing experience.

To fix this you need a registry cleaner. Registry cleaners are programs that run automated scans of your registry, searching for inconsistencies and mistakes. Registry cleaners then can correct these problems, making backups if you want, and help restore your computer to it's older, quicker self.

One of the best registry cleaners in the industry is Piriform's CCleaner. Not only is CCleaner an excellent registry cleaner, it also has several other functions that make it an invaluable tool.

Cleaner Function
CCleaner can do an automated clean up of your computer, clearing such things as your browsing history, cookies, temp files, recycling bin, windows log files, autocomplete form history, search autocomplete, and more. This takes care of all the period junk that piles up in your system every few months or so.

Registry Function
The big kahuna, CCleaners Registry Cleaning function is truly top-notch. This is best used if you have used your computer for months without a registry cleaning, or simply if you have just made a lot of changes on your computer (such as installing or uninstalling several programs, or removing spyware).

Tools Function
The tools function is an advanced program and services uninstaller. It can uninstall programs, like you can under the control panel, but more quickly, and more then one at a time. It can also disable startup programs (which you can normally do from run->"msconfig"). Both these are slightly more user-friendly than there windows counterparts, so they are very useful.

Overall CCleaner is a top-notch, if not the best free registry cleaner available for windows.
