Updated InstallContextMenus.exe inside this package to version 1.6: * add ability to optionally exclude extensions from being applied to directories * fixed a fairly serious usability oversight on my part, so now you wouldn’t need to remove extensions before reconfiguring them if they were already installed in a different configuration. The new v1.1 package can […]
Founder and Developer - After over a dozen years "in the trenches" as a computer repair technician specializing in malware removal, I came to focus on a software development hobby. Initially I created tools to assist technicians like myself with the inefficient, repetitive, and mundane tasks PC techs face daily, in order to provide a far more efficient means of getting the job done. Later came an interest in using my development skills and tech experience for prevention of malware...
Ok, I previously had a similar package that only utilized GooG, and had no real install/configure/uninstall support. Well now I got all that and more… GooG functionality: Ever wanted to right click a file and select “Google It” from the available choices? How about simply double click a .DLL file to “Google It” when you […]
(NEW) IsolateUserStartups is a tiny program intended for YOU to schedule to run at every user account logoff (via Group Policy or registry settings.) When run, it copies any new startup program entries placed in common areas (affecting all user accounts) to the local user account’s own startup area. This ensures that other user accounts […]
Sure, everybody’s got them, for one reason or another. Maybe that pesky “do not import duplicates” check box seems to taunt you with failed promises. Who knows. But most people have run into this, right? Sure, there are apps out there, nothing free that I’ve found, but for $20-$50 you can buy a program to […]
Wow! Make virtual hard disks of physical ones! Get it HERE. That will greatly simplify the existing process of creating a virtual hard disk and cloning to it, by either mounting it (real pain) or from inside a running virtual machine (still a hassle.) Of course they aren’t likely to release compatibility for a non-MS […]
Any decent tech knows about Nirsoft utilities, but what a hassle downloading them all. Until recently, I had scripted a weekly FTP download with wget to download newer file versions to a network share on my server, unzip, and package them neatly to automatically sync to my flash drive and tech machines. Also, what a […]
Norton Anti-Virus is always the cause, isn’t it? Got this message trying to browse a computer on my network. I can access the computer via UNC \computername or even IP address, but cannot access a share and permissions are all good. On the target machine I checked NetBIOS setting under WINS tab in network adapter […]
Oops, it seems I forgot to offer the updated version of this app I created some time ago. The latest version utilizes a FAST method of getting system rights while maintaining the old method as a fail-safe, and also includes several common apps you might want in a drop down list. Enjoy! www.d7xtech.com > VB6 […]
OK, so you’ve removed malware preventing Windows from starting, check! Or, maybe you just botched an IE8 upgrade. So now you notice IE8 isn’t working… well, maybe you can get to a webpage, but you can’t use the IE toolbar or get to other settings, such as internet properties (i.e. inetcpl.cpl doesn’t launch.) — or […]
So, it turns out if you uninstall the express edition and install professional, your professional will still be express…. To avoid the issue, after the uninstall you must manually delete %allusersprofile%Application DataMicrosoftOffice Accountingx.0pa.dat where x is a 3 or 4 depending on your version. Maybe I should have actually trusted an “upgrade” installation although at […]
