Guess I didn't check all the spelling with and without spaces etc..

edit: weird. I see it in the heavy font if I browse the list manually, but the search didn't pick it off. Strange.

edit2: Just tried the same thing in the 64 bit thread. At the top of the list I search 'q-dir' and 'Q-Dir' and get no hits. I scroll down and there it is.

Thanks,

Sysmgr seems to work fine on 7 x64.

The shortcut target is \Windows\SysWOW64\sysmgr.msc

The first is a wrap up of Managament Console applets in a "System Manager" that has most of the system's settings and tools right at hand...

The second is a very simple autologon creator... just enter your username and password then click Enable... when you reboot it will take you right into the account... simple as pie.

Feel free to add these to the freeware list if you like....

Thanks for that. I'm using x86 so I wasn't 100% sure about x64.

Glad you like it.

I just gave the CPU Speed applet a little try and it is way off...

It fails to take AMD's "Cool and Quiet" speed scaling into account. Anyone using it is going to get a wrong answer.

You may want to add Pelles C ... my favorite programming tool. Compiles both 32 and 64 bit programs written in C99, and has a very easy to use IDE.

I didn't see The Ultimate Boot Disc in the list. If you click on the link, and scroll down the page to see all the tools it has you'll freak out. It's great to have a single CD that has so many kick-ass DOS tools on it. I would be lost without it. And of course, it's absolutely free. You know the old saying "If it's for free, it's for me!"

Pegtop PMeter

Version 1.03

download 100% free

PMeter is a very handy pixel meter. There are plenty of desktop rulers around, but it's hard to find a good one, which is free. PMeter is a simple to use desktop ruler allowing to switch between 3 user configurations easily. For each configuration you can set width and colors individually, choose to add a desktop magnifier to your ruler, and more.

PMeter also includes a color picker in case you need to know or work with the color of any pixel visible on your screen. The additional display for mouse cursor coordinates might also be useful for you.

Of course PMeter is a portable application you can carry with you on your USB drive, but it can also be installed locally to your hard drive.

Oh, I didn't realize that. Just a suggestion. Anyway, I don't think any PC user should be without a CD of The Ultimate Boot Disc. In times of catastophe, it's a real jewel. And for everyday sorta' stuff too. I would be lost without it.
