First I would like to thank Mark Russinovich for taking the time to make Process Explorer and keeping the program free so everyone can use it.

After being busy with some other stuff I was doing I figured it was time to get back to doing some Reviews on the web site. Today I take a look at a utility that I have been meaning to take at look at for quite some time now. I have to say I wished I had known about this utility a long time ago because it certainly does make life easier when trying to figure out what all them running process do on your windows machine.

Ever wonder where all your hard drive space goes? I know every once in a while I start looking at windows explorer and sit there wondering where all my drive space has gone. The only way to see where the space is gone is to select a folder and then right click and select properties. When you do this windows will go through and basically add up all the files and folders in a selected folder and tell you what that folder is taking up for space. However today I have a better way of doing this and it comes in the way of a program called WinDirStat.

First a big thank you to VMware for providing VMware Workstation 5.5 for this Review.

A few months ago I was looking for a solution to having a clean install of Windows XP around. At the time I had settled on Norton Ghost so that I could make a image of my stock Windows install and then just save that image. Each time I wanted to get that stock clean install back I would format the drive and then remount the stock image. This was clearly faster then doing a standard of install of Windows XP all the time and then installing my other software on top of that.

First a big thank you to Symantec for providing Norton Ghost 10.0 for this Review.

As drive space continues to grow the need to be able to backup that data also grows. I can't even imagine having a 200 gig hard drive all loaded up with data and then the drive goes bad and i don't have any way to replace that data.

First a big thank you to Cyberlink for providing PowerDVD 6.0 Deluxe for this Review.

Recently I had the chance to look at the new PowerDVD 6.0 and like the previous versions of the software I think overall its a pretty good replacement for the Windows media player that has in my view gotten worse over the years and not better.

First a big thank you to Corel for providing Paint Shop Pro X for this Review.

Recently I had the chance to look at Corels latest paint program called Paint Shop Pro X and I have to say this is one of the best paint programs on the market that I have seen. Paint Shop Pro X can handle pretty much anything from simple tasks all the way up to the more complicated stuff.

I first found about SageTV when I was looking on the Hauppage site for the PVR 350 I would later Review. At the time I figured I would see if I could get SageTV for Review and see how well it worked with the Hauppage PVR 350 card. As this Review shows they go hand and hand.

Over the years I have used these three utilities from time to time and have found them quite use full. All three of these utilities are free and they are not crippled or have any type of nags in them. The three utilities I will cover here are all for the Internet. If you don't have a Internet connection then none of these programs will be of much use. However if you goto the Analogx web site you will find all sorts of utilities that range from audio utilities to system and network utilities as well.

First a big thank you to Techsmith for providing Camtasia Studio for this Review.

If your into making Video Tutorials, Software Demos or Presentations then look no further then Camtasia Studio. This program is built to do one thing and thats capture your desktop and all your mouse movement that you do on it and then turn that into a video. If you wanted for example to show someone via video how to use a program then Camtasia Studio would be for you. Not only does it capture your desktop and mouse movements but it can also record audio at the same time if you have a MIC plugged into your sound card.

For some time i have always been impressed with web sites that go above and beyond in terms of trying to help people learn certain software. One such site that does this is 3D-Palace. The sites main focus is based around 3d studio, and if you have ever looked at 3d studio you will soon understand why you need someone to teach you how to use it.

This program i picked up a few days ago off of SourceForge .

Some encryption programs i have tried out have been single file encryption of they could do a folder of files. TrueCrypt does that as well as it can do entire hard drives. Along with being able to encrypt drives on the fly it can also basicly emulate a drive in a single file. So for example i may only have a few text files or the like that need encrypting and to encrypt a small section of my drive isn't worth doing. However with TrueCrypt not only can i encrypt my hard drive i can also setup what is known as a container.
