Well, I gave up on Tray Wizard. It kept on forgetting that I hid some icons and also didn't allow some of them to display. So, now I'm using TraySaver which is better at managing the system tray. You can get it from The source for it can be found at

General Software Discussion / UpdateStar
« on: October 02, 2007, 03:49 PM »
Description from the SnapFiles listing:

UpdateStar scans your computer for installed software products and produces a list of your inventory and available updates, along with download link and additional information. The program not only works with widely used commercial products, but also with many freeware and shareware programs available from the web. UpdateStar runs in the system tray and can automatically check for updates on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. You can customize the list of products and choose to ignore updates from certain products. The update database is maintained by the developer and accepts input from users to help improve the accuracy. The current version recognized about half of the 50 products we had installed, so there is definitely room for improvement. Overall, however, this is a very promising product.

Tray Manager isn't that good. It hasn't been updated in 7 years, doesn't integrate with Windows XP, etc. unless you have it run at startup, and doesn't detect all of the system tray icons that were displayed on my PC. So, while searching for info on it, I found another freeware tray manager called Tray Wizard. I would have to say that its just as good as PS Tray Factory.

Here's a link to download it (since the official site has been abandoned):

Its been more than 2 years since the previous post and the only things that changed are that they had some bugs fixed in the latest versions and the website has been improved. I posted a message on its forum about the GUI and the developer stated that he doesn't want a fancy interface because it could cause more problems to occur.


It would be nice to have because there aren't any good ones out for it.

General Software Discussion / MooPlayer
« on: November 30, 2006, 07:34 AM »
Description from the FileForum listing:

MooPlayer was designed to replace Windows Media Player 6 (mplayer2). It uses a similar style where the player is only the actual video, menu and window frame. It is DirectShow based which means it supports all formats that Windows Media Player does (MPEG, DivX, XviD, etc.). The interface is meant to be as minimal as possible. All controls are overlayed on the video so you can easily access them even in full screen mode. This also means they don't clutter up the view as much. It is released under the GPL and source is available for all releases.

They've just recently opened a forum for it. You can reach it at

1. orbitnet.exe is an optional program which uses the DHT p2p network to locate additional
  copies of the program you are downloading, much like torrent does,so that it can download
  pieces of the file from different servers and combine them, in order to speed up download.
  You can't disable it in current version, But in next version,you can disable it during
  installation & options menu.

Its running even after closing Orbit because the developer forgot to include the ability to have it be closed along with Orbit. That will change in a later version.

Well, according to the support team, Orbitnet.exe (which is the p2p backend used to help speed up downloads) connects to a bunch of servers so it can be ready to help with the speeding up of them. Some of the servers it uses are in a subnet range with causes some Anti-Spyware programs to think that its communicating with (even though it isn't doing anything harmful).

Sorry for bringing it back up, but I just recently learned of how to replace Task Manager. All you have to do is:

  • First, Open the Registry Editor
  • Navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options
  • Create a new key there called taskmgr.exe.
  • In the newly created key, add a string labeled debugger.
  • Edit the debugger string with the path (in quotes if necessary) to the program that you want to replace the Task Manager with.
  • Finally, close the Registry Editor

BTW, I learned of the above from a MSDN blog post (

btw, is there an English page for Amembo?

Yes, there is. It can be reached at
