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.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html not removal tool but an immunizer to help keep the bad guys out

 

Antivirus:

Avira Free http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus

Avast http://www.avast.com/en-us/index

Microsoft Security Essentials http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows...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.

Excellent job, I approve icon14.gif

 

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

 

But some additons

 

File Under - Benchmarking & Monitoring Utilities:

Belarc Advisor - General tool to examine your computer and give you a comprehensive overview of all software, hardware, O/S Updates and a security report about your computer http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

 

File Under - P2P (for legal reasons)

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.

Excellent topic. However, there seems to be something wrong with your table code. It's breaking the page so it would be nice if you could take the time to fix it.

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.

 

 

 

I updated it, but still can't fix the Index problem. Any solutions?

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

I fixed the Index for now, I guess the only way is editing from Notepad then copy/paste.

 

@leik: Just noticed that, I'll fix it and add your links. blush.gif

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)

Automatically updates outdated software so you are always up to date. Also tells you how secure your system actually is with a percentage system. Users also have the option for Secunia to notify outdated software and let user manually patch it themselves.

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
