If they are specific processes you know are running it should be easy to write an AutoHotKey script to shut them down. Something like this should work for Outlook.exe


[copy or print]
Process, wait, Outlook.exe, 1    ; Wait 1 second to see if Outlook.exe exists in the running processes list
NewPID = %ErrorLevel%           ; Save the value immediately since ErrorLevel is often changed.
if NewPID = 0
{
  MsgBox Outlook Wasn't running anyway
  exit
}


; Otherwise close all running instances of Outlook.exe
MsgBox All instances of Outlook will now be closed
Process, waitclose, Outlook.exe, 5   ; Allow Outlook 5 seconds to close
NewPID = %ErrorLevel%
if NewPID <> 0
 MsgBox One or more instances of Outlook could not be closed
exit

I haven't actually tried this but it is a slightly modified example script from the AHK Help file

Quite correct ... the trouble I have with the sysinternals program is that the output seems almost inpenertable if you aren't an expert in the registry.

On my system it reports a couple of files are different, but I have no way of knowing what made them different or if they actually need to be different versions. They could for example have been updated by Microsoft Update since the last SysInternals update.

Yes, I have tried the sysinternals one, but I think the results are easier to interpret in this one.

How about some apps that are only available for download to members. Not the current ones, but perhaps as new ones come online they could be restricted (but heavily advertised) for a period of time.

Everyone can still get them for free if they can't afford it (just email Mouser and ask) but they are freely available to honorary and charter members ??
6905  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Free download - Rootkit analyzer on: November 14, 2005, 03:03:08 PM
I'm just downloading this freebie. It will becaome part of a commercial release later on but is free at the moment.

Resplendence write some good stuff - I can really recommend their Registry Manager as a replacement to Regedit. It has excellent fast seach functions and registry bookmarking. It can also defrag your registry and backup/restore your entire registry amongsth lots of other features (like remote editing ...). There is also a free lit version to download.

Here is a screenshot of the RootKit Analyzer. It detects where NTKernal hooks havebeen intercepted and displays these 'hooks' with where they are linked to and the name of the software/program producer. Its a useful display, and far easier to interpret than other rootkit detectors I have seen. Definitely worth a look.

See http://www.rivierapublish...o.uk/Free_Midi_Files.html

I have bought loads of DVD-R/+R/-RW/+RW from this company and they are great value. Fast delivery (at least in the UK) and cheap prices.

Thanks for pointing out that thread ... particularly interesting news at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4427606.stm

I wonder is Sony are criminally liable having caused the problem?

question 2 is, anyone a member of shareware association? do you think its worth the membership dues?

Or perhaps they could pass on the odd question you have Wink

Don't need to use it but if anyone is interested they seem to have adopted the Adobe PhotoShop interface. Not sure it will do they same as PS though, but if it does a quarter of it then $32 is pretty cheap ...

Interesting webpage - I couldn't view it at all in Firefox - had to go into Internet Explorer ...

I particularly like the article on iTunes (is Sony taking up Apple's batton on consumer realtions Wink)

I use Windows 2000 Pro (don't like XP that much)

Can I ask why? (Just curious). If it is the 'blue theme' that can easily be turned off, and you can revert the Start Menu etc. so it all looks like 2000.

Granted it isn't a huge increase in terms of new stuff over 2000 but it is better supported these days by MS, and looks like it will be more so in the future (despite the huge corporate use of win2k).

I swapped from W98 to W2k and then WXP and I must say I was reluctant at each step (familiarity I suppose) but I have grown to like WinXP.
6917  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: ANNOUNCING - DonationCoder.com Logo Contest on: November 13, 2005, 07:55:09 PM
Corporate Logo was the word that sprang to mind when I saw it Wink

Here's my final stab at the animated birdie nonsense, I have given him a bag of money, but to make it easy to carry it is attached to his twig (and it saves me editing the twig out). (Zipped XAR file also attached if anyone wants to play with this further). Ideally the bottom end of the stick needs to be edited out, but that means manually editing 9 frames, and my attempts came out less than artistic  embarassed

Moerl,

Are you using "Startup Delayer" ?

I had this problem with a number of apps until I tracked the problem down. If you have set up Startup Delayer (or similar) to manage the startup process you will probably have apps starting from there. the trouble is a number of apps when they start see the 'Start with Windows" option set and the regenerate the entry in the normal windows registry. This means the program gets started twice, and some programs respond to that by opening a window. Also I have found that Startup Delayer doesn't always transfer command line options (which usually force the minimized to tray option).

Just a thought.

Just another version to give the impression. The bird was found (a dove of peace) on Google Images. If we could change the twig for a bag of money with coins dropping out ...

(Zipped XAR file attached for this one too - if you want to see animations and how they work go to the Gallery Menu and click on Frames)
6921  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: ANNOUNCING - DonationCoder.com Logo Contest on: November 13, 2005, 01:02:20 PM
Does this help? If it does I created in Xara Xtreme (www.xara.com) which rivals Adobe Illustartor (at a fraction of the price) and is easier to use. I have attached the Xara file (zipped because I can't attach XAR files) if you want to download the demo and experiment.

Carol,
might I ask what you used to make the logo for Swaledale Outdoor Club?

A scanner  embarassed

It's off the letter head of the club ...
6924  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: ANNOUNCING - DonationCoder.com Logo Contest on: November 12, 2005, 07:32:13 PM
Here are a couple of stabs at the animated money/binary strip ...

I perhaps need fewer, larger coins and slow it down a bit. Trouble is slowing it down needs more frames which means bigger filesize.

I also though as the Money wiped along it could generate DonationCoder.com behind it ???

Not trying to nick people's ideas just thought I'd have a quick stab - if anyone wants the PhotoShop PSD file to play with I can let them have it. The animation was made in Adobe ImageReady 7.
6925  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: HELP ... Any ideas - Bad Partition table (sometimes) ???? on: November 12, 2005, 06:59:24 PM
You say "It's just a shame Norton now have it and don't seem to be devloping it any longer.", but what you probably mean is now Symantec has it.

You are quite correct of course - just my typing speed got the better of my thinking ...

Quote
Symantec is the disease of the application software world. They buy products and companies continuously. Those good ones they don't discontinue right away, they load up with bloat and turn the programs into caricatures of what they once were. Norton was an excellent company before Symantec bought them out. Same with Central Point, Quarterdeck, the Partition Magic people, AtGuard, etc. The list goes on & on of wonderful products turned to poo by Symantec.

Agree wholeheartedly ...
