    Trying to use a Windows built-in alternative always when possible, I have noticed I do not need any docks. Quick Launch toolbar works for me, with big icons it's clear, easy to use and uses almost no resources.

    I made a folder on the desktop with subfolders to categorize most of my utilities, then hid the folder inside Documents.

    The "old new thing" of Windows insisting on being C: allows you to just copy it over the network to other machines using Vista or 7(or XP it the OS happens to be on C:,) if you install all the utils in the same spots. Most portable apps I just have under C:\Utils in a folder named for the app. Using it as a ToolBar on the taskbar is not smooth because that requires right click then mouse over each subfolder which folds open like a menu. Rather tedious for me. Using each subfolder as an icon for a dock is smooth though. I made a custom icon for each category.

    On another board there's a dude with a super gigantic QuickLaunch. I mean this guy must have 8 rows of stuff. Sets the taskbar to auto-hide. It's freaky to see screen shots. But after long use he knows where every icon is and what it does. I hate things that disappear when I mouse over 'em so I couldn't deal with it. :)

    Also I hope he has image restore because I'd hate to redo that mess!! :)

    Q: Do I have to be connected to the Internet to use Soluto Beta?
    A: Yes. In order for Soluto Beta to work properly, you must be connected to the Internet. Every action executed by every user of the boot feature is gathered anonymously into the PCGenome database. In turn, Soluto Beta uses the information contained in the PCGenome to generate its advice about applications and services, its community statistics, and its recommendations. You must be connected to the Internet to retrieve the most up-to-date information from the PCGenome servers.
    Uhhh,, No. I'm just sayin'.

    SAConv : command line text subtitle converter


    I found this free Windows command line text subtitle converter called SAConv.

    Subtitles Converter | Download Subtitles Converter software for free at SourceForge.net

    I tried it on Windows7 32 bit. It's good for batch conversions. I tried the .ass to .srt and it worked ok for me. I didn't write it. It's a SourceForge project. If you find any bugs you can report them on the SourceForge project page for the software.

    There's not much in the way of documentation. It uses a .NET subtitle API library. But it doesn't specify what the .NET dependencies are. I guess if you have a need for batch subtitle conversion you may want to give it a try.

    More than 3 or 4 subtitle files, loading in a Gui converter and doing SaveAs gets tedious. This could be convenient when you have a folder full of text subs to convert.

    Running it in a command prompt with no arguments should display usage info.

    I found this program while surfing to internet...
    ShellMenuView
    Description

    ShellMenuView is a small utility that display the list of static menu items that appeared in the context menu when you right-click a file/folder on Windows Explorer, and allows you to easily disable unwanted menu items.
    System Requirements
    ShellMenuView works properly on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003/2008, and Windows 7/Vista. You can also use ShellMenuView on Windows 98 for viewing the menu items list, but the disable/enable feature won't work on this version of Windows. (The disabling feature is achieved by adding 'LegacyDisable' key to the desired menu item in the Registry, and this Registry key is not supported by Windows 98)
    It's working on Windows 7 x32 bit.
