Tools to make the most out of Windows

Whether you're running Windows Vista or XP, let's face it, this OS just lacks the needed tools to make our life more easier. Anyways, if you want to make the most out of Windows, here are just some software that can help you achieve just that:

  • Disview. A software that helps you analyze your disk usage, protect your data from disk failures as well as helps you organize and manage your files.
  • PrimoPDF. A freeware that lets you convert your documents into PDF. A pretty useful and cheap tool considering that Adobe Acrobat Professional has a very steep price.
  • Advanced Find and Replace. A tool which lets you search for specific text within a batch of files. Pretty handy if you cannot remember the file name and just want to search and replace specific text.
  • Virtual CD. Lets you create a virtual drive on your PC.
  • Extensions for Windows. A new software that calls itself the Unofficial Windows Upgrade. Has a lot of utilities including the previously mentioned tools and more affordable too. Has disk analyzer, document converter, pdf converter, screen capture demos, etc.
