    Has anyone here tried this program yet? It appears to be an all in one for us. Sure would reduce the number of shortcuts on the task bar....

    Thanks for the link DeadAddict

    I have seen it mention before, but have never tried it. I think I will though. Let you now what I think of it in a few days.

    sdg is correct (as usual )

    I have been a fan of this software for about three years now.

    It has progressively been enhanced with more and more tools. It is very intuitive and user friendly, so is good for non-literate types.

    The little dog is a bit of a pain in the butt (you can switch the barking off) but great social engineering for young children....................gets them thinking about security?

    I have now upgraded on 98/98se/Me/W2k and XP pro boxes........absolutely no problems

    It is free for personal use, and there is a "pro" version that you can buy.

    Please give it a try....it may not be "for you" but I am willing to bet you know several people it would work for.

    Cheers
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
