Personally, I wouldn't use it.
All of those things (or a very large majority) can be done without the software.
Yes, you have to learn how to configure windows and use Permissions, which is a good thing.

Trying to use a 3rd party software like this to do what windows does natively is only asking for trouble.

I should stress,, what this program does is take over some of the Rights (Permissions) work.
This can work out to be a very bad thing if anything goes wrong. You could lose everything.

The encryption stuff can be achieved with Trusted sources such as TrueCrypt and through Windows Encrypted File System.

I think it would make posting a link to this page with a direct subject title for that particular section for members who looking for such apps easier to find. Instead of having to scroll threw the list all willy nilly. Just a thought....
That would be a good suggestion if that was the raison d'Ítre for the forum. But Brink already does 10,000 other things. If only interested in a category, search. You should get hits in the descriptions.. as in "editor" or "syntax highlighting editor" or "firewall" or other area of interest.
The point was to categorize the list. So that when the list was referred to for help, it could be referred to a specific area of the list. That's all I was trying to suggest.
I got the point. Why don't you volunteer to do it then?
I'm sure the mods can always use a hand.

That's correct, if some of us can do this, very good, other wise let's just enjoy this forum and all the good things from it.

HxD Hex Editor and Disk Editor

"HxD is a fast hex editor which, additionally to raw disk editing and modifying of main memory (RAM), handles files of any size.
The easy to use interface offers features such as searching and replacing, exporting, checksums/digests, insertion of byte patterns, a file shredder, concatenation or splitting of files, statistics and much more.
Editing works like in a text editor with a focus on a simple and task-oriented operation, as such functions were streamlined to hide differences that are purely technical."
I have used this for a while now and found it very useful. You can explore disks as physical or logical (partitions). I'm running Win7x64 program is 32 bit.

HxD

PS: I have since noticed HxD raised elsewhere on Forum.
Brink: I think at least one, not necessarily this one, Hex editor should be on the free list.

Hi all see what you think of this free program

All-In-One Tray

extract from AddictiveTips

All-In-One Tray is a portable application to launch Windows build-in tools and functions right from the system tray. It is built on very simple yet interesting idea of having all the shortcuts of important system elements – catering to generic system management and administration along with Windows build-in network tools, system controls, etc., in system tray, so users can launch them anytime without having to roam around and search through different locations. The application encompasses more 50 different Windows tools and functions which can be accessed from their respective menus and sub-menus, be it system tools & security tools, Maintenance tools, Device controls, utility manager, anything which you possibly need can be brought up through its application’s menu.

Hi. Not sure whether has this been posted yet but here is what I have got.

AMIP
AMIP stands for Advanced mIRC Integration Plug-in.
Present AMIP features;
-- Take "now playing" song information from all major music media players (Winamp, iTunes, MediaMonkey, QMP (QCD), foobar2000, etc)
-- Pass "now playing" song details to almost any application (IRC clients: mIRC, jIRCii, Bersirc; IM clients: Miranda, Trillian, MSN Messenger; E-mail clients: The Bat!, Outlook, Thunderbird; Web browsers, blogging tools, windows clipboard and so on)

Reason for me using: I use MediaMonkey and would like my Windows Live Messenger to display what songs am I playing so that's why I find this program useful.

Wireshark
Present Wireshark features;
-- Deep inspection of hundreds of protocols, with more being added all the time
-- Live capture and offline analysis
-- Standard three-pane packet browser
-- Multi-platform: Runs on Windows, Linux, OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and many others
