Mini-Reviews by Members / Image viewer speed benchmark
« on: January 19, 2011, 09:45 AM »
This test benchmarks the average decoding time to goto next image file.
Machine Hardware: Thinkpad T42 1.5 GHz Dothon CPU(2MB cache), ATI Mobility Radeon 9000
Test Method: Browser through 9 jpeg files with 1200MP.
                   When the image is completely decoded, pagedown to the next file.

   ACDSee Pro 2.5                   0.50
   FastPictureViewer 1.0 build 109  0.55 (GPU Acceleration is not supported on my machine)
   Hamana 1.48                      0.83
   JPEGView  1.0.21.0               0.94
   ColorStorm 10.9.8.11             1.07
   MangaMeeyaCE  2.4 Beta           1.23
   Picasa 3.8                       1.37
   FastStone  4.2                   1.43
   MaxView 2.4                      1.43
   Fax&Image  (xp)                  1.46
   XnView 1.97.8                    1.54
   FastStone  3.8                   1.56
   XnViewMP 0.32 beta (Dec 6 2010)  1.57
   IrfanView   4.28                 1.57
   Imagine 1.0.8 WIP(Jul 5 2010)    1.70

Conclusion:
ACDSee Pro is still the King of speed. The commercial software has its selling point.
But I would like to see how fast FastPictureViewer is with GPU acceleration.

Hamana is designed for reading comics.

JPEGView is the one I recommend, fast, free and open source.
Unicode filenames and directories are no problem.
It also support some photo editing features, and can show EXIF data on top of photos.
The only features I missed are color manager, and lossless crop.

General Software Discussion / registry editor
« on: February 21, 2009, 11:55 PM »
From ntbtlog.txt (xp boot log file), I found out there is a driver file changed its name everytime I reboot.

Loaded driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\Modem.SYS
Loaded driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\a5mzjxub.SYS
Loaded driver \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\cfosspeed.sys

However, when I login xp, I can't find the suspect file.
This possible virus also appears in registry (HLKM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/), and also changes its name when I reboot.
But no real filename is recorded in that registry item.

I have used NOD32 4RC and antivir (with updated virus code) to scan the hardrive in safe mode, but no luck.

When the computer is turned off, I think the virus write back its real name to registry so that xp know to run it when I boot up.
Is there a registry editor that can edit registry on another hard drive?

General Software Discussion / How do I pin out the suspect virus file?

This possible virus also appears in registry (HLKM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/), and also changes its name when I reboot.

I have used NOD32 2.7 (with updated virus code) to scan the hardrive in safe mode, but no luck.
Can anyone give me some idea and tool to pin out this virus? Thank you.

General Software Discussion / Save clipboard vector graph in EMF
« on: October 21, 2008, 01:45 AM »
Is there a free command line tool that can save the vector graph in the clipboard to an EMF file?
Now I only find EMFSaver, but it is not a command line tool.
