FYI: Eset SysInspector

Just a friendly warning to anyone thinking of using this to help diag someones PC through forums.

It is a good tool to have for self diagnosing systems and seeing everything that is going on.
By no means is this a put down on the app itself. It can come in quite handy and one that I had forgotten about, to some extent.

It is HIGHLY Advisable that you do not post any logs from this application on the internet.

It can and most likely will reveal what applications are listening on what IP addresses and which ports are open.
Everything that a good net/port scanner will do.
As long as you are behind a decent firewall/router, your system should not produce this information to potential hackers.

Among other sensitive information.

Just something I personally would be cautious about.

Using the tool as a diagnostics is fine, just don't publish your logs on line.

That's definitely good to know there. Tepid I've seen other free system info programs that will also tend to reveal personal as well as product information you don't want out on the web.

Description: Special Folders Manager 2 is your ultimate manager of Wondows special folders. Some of Windows special folders contain user's data and therefore it is important user to decide where to place its files. For now Save Me 2 lists, redirects, copy and restores folders that can be redirected. List of folders that can be moved includes folders like - My Documents, Desktop, Contacts, Downloads, Saved Games, My Pictures, Favorites, Links and so on

Windows special folders must be backed up before installing a fresh copy of Windows on the system, as they may contain important files, saved preferences, application logs, game saves, music libraries, and many other types of items which you canít afford to lose at any cost. These folders are generally referred to as folders which are created and managed by Windows, including, My Documents, My Music, My Videos, Common Files, Music Library, Games, Common Startup Menu, My Music, ProgramData and many others. Backing up these folders manually is quite a hectic task, as one has to locate them and then manually move them. Special Folders Manager is a backup utility which capitalizes solely on backing up and restoring Windows special folders.

With this application, you wont have to search for special folders, just launch it, specify folders which you want to move, and start the backup process. It will backup all the folders in one go, saving you a lot of precious time and effort. Apart from creating backup, it allows you to instantly restore backed up special folders to their original locations, so freshly installed Windows can detect and fetch contained data automatically. more from this link >>> Backup Windows 7 Special Folders And Restore On Fresh Windows Installation

This tool was posted by Corrine in one thread here on SF,but I didn't find it here,so I'll post it.

TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer


TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.


TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail. TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.
