    Since this is a computer security site, the windows port of snort is also wonderful. Sniffer and IDS in one.

    Letīs not forget about Fix-it utilities from ontrack.

    Personally i have no idea why PcMag gave norton utilities a better rating that fix-it , It is without a doubt the best windows helping tools out there, and since windows is like it is i couldnt do without these kind of tools.

    These are items I would really recommend to any power-user or techie. AFAIK all these programs are freeware. (Or have a version you can use that is freeware)

    Another Task Manager -- Very useful Win9x process control program

    SysInternals Tools -- Several monitoring tools... for instance, wigh RegMon you can see real-time registry changes, and identify the program that did it and what keys it added or changed, Filemon, ditto for the filesystem, and a few more.

    BinText -- Lets you search for 'text strings' (you can make your own filters) within files, and it can even tell you where the string will be in memory when the program is run (if an executable).

    Windiff.exe -- Windows Tool, dunno where to find it. It can check individual files for changes, or whole DIRECTORIES (+subs) for files that are only in one location or the other, files which are similar, are different, etc.


    There are a few that I would less-recommend, and a few that I would REALLY recommend but aren't freeware, so I won't bother mentioning either of them here.

    Always glad to help. If you have questions on 'that other stuff', just ask .

    BTW: Cyberkit is 'postcardware', meaning it is free of charge, but you 'have' to send the author a postcard of the place you're living:
