Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1

I've been using it for about a month on my laptop, but I have used it for longer in a Win10 VM for the initial install and update of a range of programs. I used to use Ninite but this is more flexible.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1

It had a problem with GIMP in detecting my version probably because I had a bad install some time in the past which had leftovers. I also have professional versions of a couple of the programs. That might work but I didn't chance it. Fortunately it is easy to turn off individual programs. If you schedule it you have the option of running in the background but I prefer to see what it is doing.

SoundMixer : Windows Volume Mixer open/autoclose

SoundMixer is a utility to add some automation to the Windows Volume Mixer Window. It is an AHK Hotkey program that sits in the Task Tray. If you left click its Tray Icon or the system speaker icon, it sends an Alt x to the Volume Control Window to bring up the Volume Mixer Window. The hotkey Control Shift v will also do this.

When the Volume Mixer Window loses focus, such as when you click the desktop, taskbar, or another window, the Volume Mixer Window is closed.

The zip file includes the exe file, Readme.txt, the ahk source code, and custom icon.

Compiles with AutoHotkey v1.1.22.00

NTFS Permissions Tool

A portable tool that can change file and folder permissions very quickly including multiple selections. I just used it to correct some permissions for folders on an external drive.

There is a swithchable Edit / Browse mode that allows either file browsing or drag and drop.

32bit and 64bit English versions are available. Download scans clean on VirusTotal.

Absolute Uninstaller vs Revo Uninstaller

I currently do have RU installed, what do you suggest guys? Should I switch to AU? What are the differences and powerhouses? (In terms of rinsing unnecessary registry files)

AU is poorly rated by CNET users.
RU is highly rated by CNET users.

I have only used free version of RU and it has not failed me so far.

I believe the free version of RU only uninstalls 32-bit programs,
for 64-bit you need a different tool, but 64-bit programs are rare.
