Free O/S: Plan9, OpenBSD and Maybe Haiku?

Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials

Media: Foobar2000, I use it and it's an all around great program with a simple UI that is extensively customizable.

Spyware: Antimalwarebytes maybe? I've ran it a few times and it's picked up stuff other programs left behind.

Game Apps: xfire? you spelt fraps wrong also tounge.gif

Also you could probably throw a link to 4chan /g/ in there somewhere. Aside from the occasional INSTALL GENTOO and other trolling, it's a decent resource.


You've did a f*cking brilliant job on this though, props.

RivaTuner is dead. MSI AfterBurner and eVGA Precision are both based on RivaTuner.
MSI Kumbuster (comes with AfterBurner), eVGA OC Scanner and OCCT are all good for burn-in/stress testing graphic cards.
Down side got the eVGA is that you need an account (it's free) to download them but you can get Precision 2.1.2 here not sure of where else to get OC Scanner.

OCZTechnology doesn't to memory any more, only SSDs
Speaking of SSDs maybe add a section for that; include Kingston, Cruical, and Intel

Add memtest86+ http://www.memtest.org/

Spyware Removal:
MalwareBytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/
SpywareBlaster http://www.javacools...areblaster.html not removal tool but an immunizer to help keep the bad guys out

Antivirus:
Avira Free http://www.avira.com...-free-antivirus
Avast http://www.avast.com/en-us/index
Microsoft Security Essentials http://windows.micro...rity-essentials

Not sure where to put these:
Filehippo http://filehippo.com/ great place to get the latest version as well as older versions of many programs and drivers
Alternative To http://alternativeto.net/ to find alternatives to programs, great for finding a free alternative to commercial software


And check the Index, you have Video spelled wrong; Viideo
Maybe make the Index alphabetical even if the lists aren't. Might make it easier for some to find what they are looking for.

...except easy on the colours, could do with a little less.

But some additons

uTorrent - BitTorrent Client - Very Popular http://www.utorrent.com/
PeerBlock - BitTorrent peer IP blocker for 'spy' IP's and untrustworthy IP's http://www.peerblock.com/ (it does have legitimate reasons)

File Under - E-Retailers
scan.co.uk - UK Based computer component retailer http://www.scan.co.uk/
eBuyer.com - UK Based computer component retailer http://www.ebuyer.com/

There a few other e-Retailers that are UK based, but the rest are expensive and crap.

Nice. I intended to update the old one, but just haven't had time, so I'm glad someone finally did it.

I'll leave it unpinned for a few days so more people will notice it floating around in here.

That's why when I did the SnP tableb for GTAVC and SA I did it all in Notepad or Wordpad or sometimes used the GTAForums Table Code Generator.
Then when I "edit" the tables I would copy/paste from there
I believe there is an unwritten character limit that a post can have. For the SA SNP I had to split the table in 2.

Send me, in a text file, your code and I'll have a look. Try my previous suggestion first to see if that fixes it

Just figured I'd point out that your link under water cooling manufacturers links to an automotive water/methanol injection kit and an Aquarium Chiller.

So here are some links to manufacturers of all in one liquid cooling kits.
Thermaltake
Corsair
Asetek
Antec
NorthQ


Also, under motherboards, Chaintech doesn't manufacture them and none are listed on the site.
Some more common motherboard manufacturers:
EVGA
Supermicro

Under SSDs:
Corsair

PC Cases:
Corsair
Raidmax
NZXT
Antec

Some suggestions
Make the text readable so use won't have to squint. Some of the text are similar in color to the background.
Also for software or utilities, label it as freeware or commercial (pay version)

More SSDs
Adata
Western Digital (yes they make SSDs too)
Kingston
Samsung
Plextor

Benchmark/StressTest
OpenSourceMark (Freeware)
A benchmarking/stress tool that mimics how a computer is used in the real world.
A great alternative the expensive commercial based BAPCo Sysmark that cost around $850

Menu restoration (viruses removal additions)
Unhide.exe (freeware)
Restores start menu items after it has turned "empty" as well as make all of your files visible again after a infection.
*** Unhide will only work if no cleaner program are used. If a cleaner software is used, then shortcuts to the programs are
permanently lost and unhide will not be able to recover it. For that user will have to manually add the shortcut links manually to the
start menu. Unhide is not a virus removal tool.***

Security
Secunia (free/commercial)

Great work there matey, and definitely a topic I'll be using much when I get back on my own PC. Just to echo what others have said though, it's probably a good idea to edit, or remove completely, all the color tags within the tables. It makes the whole thing look tacky...no offence.

@Butters/Stinky/Gareth: Can you specify more what's exactly wrong with the colors? some of them or all of them?

Also Butters if you have any categories that can be added please post them. smile.gif

Too many of them, very cluttered, a lot of them are clashing so looks a little messy.

Even them out in groups and it'll look a little more uniform and not so, I don't really want to use the word as you've done a good job, but amateur.

I accept that, I did it because I started with logos instead of names, only to remember that there's an image limit. I wanted to compensate, but yeah, it seems to be a failure. tounge.gif

I'll remove them in the next update. smile.gif

EDIT: Removed colors, added links and the Index again - but forgot to copy it before posting it. sad.gif
