Preferred Solution: I need a good program

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: Good FTP program?

Ive been using CuteFTP for a while and it is decent but I figure there may be something better out there.

I use my web hosting to back up various large files on my computer so having something that can "resume" a failed upload would be ideal - CuteFTP is not able to do this.

Any recommendations for either a free or paid app?

I was wondering if such a program exists and if so, can someone recommend one? I'm looking to clean up some files on my registry. Is that safe? I've already used some programs like Spybot, Ad-aware, Norton and Trojan Remover. But, it seems I still have somewhat of a lot of programs still running in my registry which could possibly be slowing my computer. Any recommendations?

Answer:Looking for a good program

Hi Chadwick0211,

Registry cleaners are not recommended. When you say there appear to be programs running in your computer and slowing it down, how do you know this? What programs have highlighted them?

The reason I ask is that programs that run in the registry are either necessary system files, optional programs which you have installed or malicious files which have sneaked in. You can damage the registry very easily if you don't know what you are doing.

There are safer things to do with the second group, like stopping them running on startup, and experts here can help you with the last group. We just need to know a bit more about them.

Hi everybody. Im kinda new here so dont be to hard on me. I have an older Dell pc that I am running with windows 2000. Over the years it has gotten a bit slower and Im sure a little clogged up. I went through my programs and discovered that over the years I have collected several programs all related to maintaining the pc. What I would like to do is uninstall ALL of them and do a fresh install of ONE program that does it all. Is there a program that does it all? Currently I have installed:

System Mechanic 6 Professional
Kaspersky Internet Security
SUPER AntiSpyware
Spyware blaster
Smart Defrag

I also must admit, I really dont have any problems with spyware or anything else. Like I said, a little slower than it used to be. But that is to be expected. I know that there is a new System Mechanic 8 out. I was thinking about upgrading to that and uninstalling everything else. Good idea or not?

Answer:Is there a good one for all program?

No. I used System Mechanic several years ago. It's not worth the money. Some of the things it does can be done better by free programs and stuff like a registry cleaner you shouldn't use anyway. It's not an anti virus. It has an anti spyware but it isn't very good. And it doesn't have a firewall. Chances are pretty good that Kaspersky is what is slowing down your computer because like most anti virus programs, it's running in the background and all anti virus programs slow down your computer to some degree. You have to sacrifice some speed to get that protection because you'll get infected if you don't have it. With the exception of Spyware Blaster, none of that other stuff including System Mechanic runs in the background so they're not slowing down your computer. Ditching all your security programs just because your computer is a little slow is throwing out the baby with the bath water.

So I have been looking at some of the application in CCleaner and I noticed that it has a feature where it can turn off programs so I was wondering what programs I could turn off. Please look at the following pictures to see each categories from start up, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Context Menu. So I just want to know what program are safe to switch off so I can slightly increase my performance since my computer lags a lot. Also one last question is, is it bad to have both Adobe Reader X and Adobe Acrobat 7 Pro on your laptop?

Answer:What program are good to have on?

From the browser's settings menu or options, look for the add-ons section to disable or tweak some or remove them completely. Do you have a particular issue with your computer? Ccleaner is mainly use for clearing your temp. files and could also be helpful in removing programs, no other. If you want to disable startup programs which are not needed during booting, you can try MS autoruns or startup lite by Malwarebytes.

Not sure if this is the right location to ask, I am looking to find what is the best software to use to remove a program from your system for good. Like when you download a trial version of a program but then decide not to purchase and you go to uninstall program, I know that there is still information on your computer about that program.
What I am asking is if you go to RegEdit and then to software and delete will that remove it from your computer for good or do I need a registry cleaner program to do this.

Answer:Removing a program for good.

Hi

If you remove it using the uninstaller (Add/Remove Programs) that should be sufficient.

You could however run a system search for it's name and delete all the folders related to it under C:\WINDOWS\Documents and Settings\<userlogin>\ and C:\Program Files\. That will give you what is remaining.

More can be found in the registry, under Software, they are the remnant keys, but will do no harm if just left there - they are merely even a few bytes and your software will still be uninstalled.

Anyone know of some good guides on how to make a copy? Would I be better of getting a second DVD drive and doing a straight copy?

Thanks for the help!
 

Answer:In need of a good DVD burning program...

Try ImgBurn. Works great for me.

I'm looking to do some computer art and need a good program. I'm specifically interested in creating small graphics, such as for avvies, buttons on forums, symbols, and other things.

Recommendations?

Paid programs are fine, but freeware is always preferable, as long as its decent. =)

Thanks in advance.

~Joshua~

Answer:Good Graphics Program

Well Paint.NET is ok.

GIMP is also free, has a windows version and quite powerful though somewhat obtuse at times. May be "too much".

Photoshop elements is relatively cheap for an amazingly full featured paint program. (90% of Photoshop at 10%of the price)

Then there is Photoshop. Expensive to start to be sure, but once your in you can update as often or inoften as you want (almost) for a resonable price.

Fore more pure art Painter (now owned by Corell) is really really nice and not horribly expensive.

My Asus Lifeframe stopped working when I upgraded from Vista to 7. Are there any good free Cam programs out there to download similar to life frame? I would be using it mostly to record video and take pictures. Not so much for chatting. I liked that life frame gave a big screen view of what was being recorded.

Answer:I NEED A GOOD WEBCAM PROGRAM!

The best i can think of off the top of my head is ManyCam (http://www.manycam.com), it has alot of cool features including recording your own desktop, effects etc.

Ok, I'm sure this has been exhausted to death, at least somewhere, but I couldn't find it ... so, what's a really good, and non-annoying program to burn data, music, and copy CDs/DVDs? I used to have Nero v6.0, but every 6 months, it tells me that I need to repurchase my license, and I know I could rip it off somewhere, or get a keygen, but I'd rather have something legal, and preferably free, although it doesn't really matter at this point, as long as it's very good, especially at the copying (and controlling aspects, like the burn speed, ect...) thanks guys.

Answer:Good Burning Program?

Nero works good for me, and I've never received anything from Nero about the license.

I know there are some free programs out there, but don't recall what they are.

I just downloaded AVG 8.0 because I have heard people talk about how good AVG is. I told my mom to replace her Norton with AVG because I heard Norton takes over your computer, however her computer guy told her that AVG is bad and to keep Norton.

Well since I have downloaded AVG, I feel as though it has taken over my computer. It runs slower now, my outlook 2002 continually crashes. I had CA Suite I got free when I had roadrunner...for some reason I had in my head the CA Suite wasn't that good.

Now I'm totally frustrated with AVG. I just want good virus protection and anti spam. I don't need firewall because it seems to mess with my internet provider.

Has anyone seen a good mp3 joining program? As an audiobook lover, I frequently get a lot of small mp3s that I would prefer to join up into chapter size chunks. I have a couple of programs that allow me to do this as a cut-and-paste process, but that is too fallible to human error. In other words, I screw that up too often, getting parts in the wrong order or leaving them out all together. I would love a program that would just allow me to select the files to be joined by filename order, and then join them up. Thanks for your help if you know of such a prog.

Hi,

My OS is Windows XP Pro. I have a program/file that is zipped and I cannot open it. Can someone recommend a good, free program I can use to unzip this program/file? Thank you.
 

Answer:Good Zip/Unzip Program

Windows will open zip files without third party assistance, and if it can't then maybe the file is not actually a zip-compressed file, despite its name.

You should also take a look at your file associations, to check what association is currently assigned to zip. The default for XP is Compressed (zipped) folders, as in this pic from XP Home. You can access Folder Options thro' Control Panel.

No worries I am not doing anything illegal only for personal use with purchased DVDs.

Thank You

Answer:Good program to RIP DVDs?.....

Don't know of anything that'll convert to WMV (will your PDA do other file formats?).

That being said, a great ripper is DVDDecrypter and, as far as I can tell, the "industry" standard. You can find encoders on your own.

Check doom9 for pretty much everything you need to start out with. Also, the stick at the top of this page might give you some helpful info.
