I have used it for several years and have done at least 2 restores. It is excellent. Combine it with BartPE and it will save your bacon.


This is not really a project management application as such but I use Axosoft OnTime for managing my software development. I find it ideal for my needs and there is a free single-user license available (which is what I have).

I didn't download the separate 'HelpMaker CHM Register Build 1.0' and haven't experienced any problems or features that don't work. This could be because I have stuff installed that came with some of the other help tools I tried when looking around.

Also, the PDF generator works for me, I suppose it's one of those things that works on one PC/Software Combination but maybe not all others.

I recently needed to write a simple help file for an application I had developed and spent some time looking for an affordable help authoring solution. After trying a few demos of commercial software I stumbled across this superb piece of freeware called HelpMaker from Vizacc.

As well as the text editing application it comes with a range of other tools such as a button maker, pdf creator and so on.

It is so good, I cannot believe it is free and thought I must share this with you all. Appologies if this is old news and everyone already knows about it.

I've tried a few (free and commercial) and am really impressed with RevoUninstaller


I use OneNote generally and find it good for most purposes. Personally the features that support tablet PCs annoy me a little as I don't use one. There are also a couple of other things that irritate a bit: You cannot hyperlink to another section in OneNote (maybe possible in 2007 version) although you can link to an external file.

I've just registered IdeaMason and although I haven't done much with it yet it looks very promising. There's a trial version on their website.
