    I like this piece of software, small download, quick, intuitive easy to use - although I wish it had an option to automatically specify a target directory when batch editing.

    I'm going to have to try FastStone Capture 5.2 as well which allows screen capture of scrolling windows.
    Yes! I've used this and the FastStone resizer quite a bit recently and both work great. Resizer is cool because you can make the image file size smaller without changing the actual dimensions of the pic (better compression / slight reduction in quality). With the ability to recursively process folders and reproduce the exact folder structure elsewhere but with the resized pics, it's great to get a group of pics down to CD size say when originally they were over.

        Awesome PuTTY is great especially due to it's compact size and no install required operation. You can take that anywhere.

        You might also want to check out tunnelier which is free also, but gives you some additional functionality. You can setup and save multiple profiles. Establish a connection to one and then you can open a terminal window or, and this is the bonus, an SFTP transfer window. Check out the screenies below. The terminal isn't as nice as PuTTY's but it's functional. The SFTP client I like better than WinSCP. I also use tunnelier as an SFTP-FTP bridge as detailed in this thread. It's a great free app, but does require an install, unlike the lightweight PuTTY.



        The terminal window:


        The SFTP transfer window:

                    Great collection of freebies. Just to mention another one, I use this free plugin called Process QuickLink (from ProcessLibrary.com) to know exactly what processes are running in Windows Task Manager.

                      Ooooh.
                      A good one for this is Precess Explorer, available form MS (formerly a sysinternals app).

                      You can not only see the processes, but you can see what threads a process is running, a mutex or mutant, events, pretty much anything you would ever want want to know, and a few (at least I) that you have no idea what they are.

                        What are folks recommending for a good freeware registry cleaner/tuner for winxp nowadays?

                          I have tried a LOT of these here:
                          http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads15.html

                          I just cant remember wich ones I liked and which I didnt.
                          And which ones were really free,or trial.
                          Sorry.

                          I am still using Registry Mechanic on my 32 bit windows, although its not free.

                              How to Recover Deleted Files with Free Software

                              Well, for all those people that are losing their data, here is a good article on free file recovery software, and a little on how to use them.

                              http://lifehacker.com/393084/how-to-...-free-software

                              Think I am going to open an old recovery thread and add this there also.
