Give Driver Cleaner .NET a try too.

It's a bargain considering the price.

CoreAVC does have some issues with many versions of x264 codec (macroblocking) and the image quality can be improved.

But still, it's easiest way we can enjoy HD playback without a powerful computer.  :)

It's looking great for my tastes.  :-*

But after deciding to buy it, I've looked around their forum. It seems the developer is gone...  :(

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear enough: how can I rename those files simultaneously to a new name? Or you can call it batch rename. I just want that all files in that pic to be called a.pptx, a.rtf, a.txt and so on.

I'm still very new to Opus and I can't get this one to work: how do I rename multiple files at the same time? I need all the files to be renamed, not just the first one.

General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager
« on: September 18, 2007, 03:52 AM »

Still testing this one but may purchase soon.  Use for unzipping encrypted archives since TC (being Swiss) won't always accept a password (important thing to know, eh?).  Lost one file, once, could have been operator (ie. my) error but I don't think so.
SpeedCommander's support for archives is really amazing, no other file manager comes close to this one imho. It's worth buying only for this feature. You'll have a compression tool and a file manager in the same package.

Unfortunately, it has a big drawback too: lack of an English help file...  :(

I've given KMPlayer another try and I admit it's very good.  :up:

However, since I'm a HD addict, I've tried a couple of high definition movies: KMPlayer still have problems with those ones. The reason is the same: it uses some old and unoptimized filters. BUT: it's easy to replace them with external filters so this isn't such a big problem. Another small issue is the subtitle engine: it won't properly play ass subs (don't laugh :P).

If you are a newbie in video players segment or an experienced user, give KMPlayer a chance. It's freeware.

The distance between KMPlayer and my fav. player, Zoom Player, is smaller with every release.  :mad: ;D

I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I've found a program that seems very promising! It's called StaxRip (Formally DVX I think).
Thanks for the tip. It's really great!  :Thmbsup:

Time to learn how to encode properly.

I've tried them both and they really are very nice freeware players.

The lack one big thing tough: proper support for HD files (720P and 1080P). Gom uses it's internal filters for HD and KM is based on Gabest Matroska splitter (pretty old).

Yeah, same question for me.  :(

Uninstall Tool has also sort by installation date option. The latest version (2.1) is very very fast.  :Thmbsup:

You can get a free licence if you translate it into your native language.

Living Room / Good email adress for ShareIt!
« on: December 15, 2006, 05:46 AM »

I'm looking to buy a program available through ShareIt! service. As some of you know, they don't allow free (usual) email adresses like Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail etc. I didn't find anything yet and my ISP doesn't offer an email service. Any idea of an email service suitable for ShareIt! ? A free one would be really great.

If you like the Menu Bar on top (and I'm sure you will) try this reg tweak provided by MajorGeeks.  :Thmbsup:

Does it still have problems with http link icons when upgrading from IE 6? I mean in my case, the start menu - programs links are usually broken, the icons should look like IE 7 but they are different. I could manually fix them from File Types but this job takes too much time.

You mean this Seems to work for me. Didnt first time because I missed the pop-up disable/enable warning. Think I got booted  8) You should see warning at top? Check Options, Content that you did not block Yahoo popups by mistake.
You are right, it was the pop-up blocker.  :-[ I'm an Opera user, I'm used to manually allow pop-up windows with right click. Still, Firefox doesn't work as well as Opera with Java: the CPU often goes to 100% when small Java windows appear.

RC3 still have problems with Java, I can't play pool on Yahoo. The playing window immediately closes itself after I've opened it.  :huh:

General Software Discussion / Re: Playing FLV files
« on: October 08, 2006, 06:54 AM »
If you can wait a little longer, Media Player Classic will support .flv files in next version.

Or you can try a CVS version of MPC.

Can someone recommend a good and stable version 3.x of Agnitum?

And maybe a link to the installer too since I can only find the current version on Agnitum webpage.

It's just another Adobe style application: big and slow. But it isn't slower than PE 4 which no doubt is a good thing. And it supports unicode characters, a cool thing for many users.

Windows 98/2000/XP should be on almost every list...  :D 8)

No, I don't think so.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers - that's the correct path for SysTool.sys file.

SysTool leaves behind a SysTool.sys driver in system32 after uninstalled.  ::)

I hope I've got rid of it completely although I removed manually the file and some registry entries.

SysTool is really cool, especially for hardware freaks.

Everest has had a free version derived from an even older but popular tool called Aida32. If you only need the monitoring stuff and the PC is not top notch that the freeware version could work very well.

Then Everest could be an option. It's a complete monitoring solution, the items to be shown in tray are customizable but it's not free and it takes about 14 MB RAM in tray.

The installer is well done, all the default files are saved in C:\WINDOWS\XPize folder.

Excellent and safe GUI enhancer.
