Windows 7 32 bit

Here's a little Tray App I wrote for someone on another board. He has an Explorer enhancement software that adds tabs to Explorer but his system won't open the Explorer window to the size and position desired.

It could also be useful, say when you open Computer and it has a scroll bar instead of showing all the drives or whatever. The point is, it sits in the tray, you open Explorer and move and size it how you want, then use the Tray Menu of ResizeExplorer to save this size and position. That's it. It only resizes and positions the first Explorer window instance. IOW, if you open another folder it isn't going to stick it directly over the current window. It leaves it alone. Once no Explorer windows are open anymore, it's "rearmed."

Try it for the hell of it if you feel like it. You can download from this page:

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

I just posted about this in another thread (LINK). I found a nice font viewer that works well in Windows 7. I had been using The Font Thing, but it's old and is a little buggy in W7, though it works fine. Nexus Font is free and has some nice features. I've tested it, as well as used it with Paint Shop Pro X2, which adds the viewed (uninstalled) and minimized fonts to its list. You can add your own sub-folders of uninstalled fonts to a list and check-mark the ones you want to view. Also, it's FAST! I'm liking it a lot!

Peer Block is a new version (aka a "fork") of the popular Peer Guardian 2 software. It blocks "known bad" computers from accessing yours, for example governments and corporations. Peer Block maintains the functionality of the original Peer Guardian 2 program, but includes fixes for various Windows Vista / Windows 7 issues that remain unaddressed in PG2.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

SDExplorer is a free, easy-to-use, but very powerful extension for Windows Explorer. With SDExplorer you can perform all everyday operations with your documents on Microsoft Live SkyDrive™ using Windows Explorer, as if they were on your computer itself.

Moreover, you don't need to install and configure any additional programs or ActiveX components. SDExplorer will take care of communicating with the online storage all by itself.

SevenForums member "Guntmeister" should be credited for this one, because he mentioned an older version in another post that he made.

I've downloaded an tested it, and it works great on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. It adds a "SDExplorer" icon to Computer in Windows Explorer, from which you can login to your Windows Live SkyDrive account, and drag and drop to and from it using Windows Explorer.

Windows 7 32 bit

Without spending like 8 hours doing a defrag, Puran has given the best CrystalDiskMark numbers I've seen on both my 32 bit and 64 bit PCs. I actually got sequential read and write scores over 100 MB/sec on my 64 bit PC right after doing a Puran defrag with all the optimzations enabled.
