Audiograbber is a beautiful piece of software that grabs digital audio from cd's. It copies the audio digitally-not through the soundcard-which enables you to make perfect copies of the originals. It can even perform a test to see that the copies really are perfect. Audiograbber can also automatically normalize the music, delete silence from the start and/or end of tracks, and send them to a variety or external MP3 encoders, such as Fraunhofers L3enc, or even use some MP3/WMA encoders internally for automatic creation of MP3's. Audiograbber can download and upload disc info from freedb, an Internet compact disc database. You can even record your vinyl LP's or cassette tapes with Audiograbber and make wav's or MP3's of them. There are a lot more functions in Audiograbber, but to put it simply: Audiograbber has the most features one can wish from such a program! Posted by Hello

ButtUglySoftware - Home of CleanCache, CleanMOCache and Password Construction Kit
You know, we hear a lot about cleaning out the cache in Internet Explorer, and this is a good thing. It's beneficial to do a little spring cleaning every once in a while. There is a truckload of tools that can handle this task specifically for IE, but what if you have Mozilla? CleanMOCache is a Mozilla / Netscape / Firefox / Opera and Windows XP cleaner from ButtUglySoftware. You knew I had to include that name somewhere in this review, didn't you?

All kidding aside, this is a very nice program. It'll take care of all those browser files that are piling up on your computer. Cover your tracks by erasing your cache, history, cookies, and typed URLs. But wait, there's more! Besides cleaning your browser out, it will also clear out the previously used files and history in a variety of Windows directories and programs. You get all of this for the price of none. Set it to run when your browser closes, or when you start and shutdown Windows. It looks like you'll need Microsoft's .NET to run this program, so go ahead and grab that first if you don't already have it. If you like ButtUglySoftware, you'll love CleanMOCache

PhotoFiltre v5.6.1 [1.9 M] Win98/2k/XP FREE
Oftentimes many of us best express ourselves digitally by doing a bit of 'pixel pushing' (image editing/creation), and though there are a plethora of great graphics editing apps available, it can be useful to discover free alternatives for the frugal among us. Some may find applications that are either limited in their functionality, or interfaces that make them inaccessible to the average user. Or, worst of all, that they are free to download but (gasp) not actually 'free' to keep and use! A friend (thanks, Kenny) recently told me about a program that really does suit the needs of both the veteran graphic artist and the novice: PhotoFiltre. Whether creating an image from scratch or importing from a source (scanner, camera, etc.), PhotoFiltre can do it via many filters and tools. Very nice interface and usage is a breeze. Best of all, it is 100% freeware!

Last Updated: Jun 15 '04
IE-SPYAD is a Registry file (IE-ADS.REG) that adds a long list of sites and domains associated with known advertisers, marketers, and crapware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer. Once this list of sites and domains is 'merged' into your Registry, most marketers, advertisers, and crapware pushers on the Net will not be able to use cookies, ActiveX controls, Java applets, or scripting to compromise your privacy or your PC while you surf the Net. Nor will they be able to use your browser to push unwanted pop-ups, cookies, or auto-installing programs on you.
Please note that IE-SPYAD is not an ad blocker. It will not block standard banner ads in Internet Explorer. What this Restricted sites list of known advertisers and crapware pushers will do, however, is:
stop unwanted crapware from being installed behind your
back via 'drive-by-downloads';

prevent the hijacking of your home page and other key
Internet Explorer settings;

shut down ActiveX, Java, and scripting, all of which can
be employed to push obnoxious advertising on you and
compromise your privacy and security;

block cookies, which can be used to monitor and track your
travels around the Internet;

combat obnoxious script-based popups that clutter your
screen and force unwanted advertising on you.
This Restricted sites list is based in part on info from:
discussions in the SpywareInfo Forums and other forums that
specialize in crapware removal
