These files are placed on this server for my benefit. As far as I know, all files are shareware, freeware, patches, or data related. I might at times post hardware drivers or software updates for myself or for others to download.
If you know of any reason why a file should not be available from this site, just let me know and I will look into it. If there is a problem, I will remove it.

There could be a newer version of the software available from the source. I have included Internet addresses for as many of these as I know.

    Autorun.exe v1.1 (32 kb) is a Win32 executable program intended for use with the Windows 9x/ME/NT4/2000 CD Autorun option. The limitation of the Autorun option is that it will only run executable programs when the CD is inserted with the Autorun option enabled. Using Autorun.exe, you can open any number of documents or start executable files. It also has a fall back strategy in case no documents can be opened. Useful  for making Autorun disks using HTML files.

    Clone CD v3.0.5.1  (2.14 Mb) is a powerful CD-Copy program. It writes in Raw mode, which allows it to have total control on the data written. Therefore, CloneCD will produce real 1:1 copies of your CDs. Because of its special operation, CloneCD requires a CD-Writer which is capable of writing in this mode. Most currently available CD-Writers support this. Further, CloneCD requires a CD-Reader which supports some specific commands. With the correct equipment, CloneCD is able to make working copies of (almost) every CD, regardless if it is copy protected or not. CloneCD is released as shareware. You may and should try it out. This version of CloneCD works with Windows 95 or 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.x or Windows 2000. The minimum requirements are a Pentium 133 and 64 Mbytes of RAM.

    Kill Win (318 kb)
    Not a lawyer from the Justice Dept. Allows you to control shutdowns and can stop all programs running, if you want it to. A must have for CD burners with buffer under-run problems. It also works well with games and applications that need every last bit of memory and processing power you can give them. Kill Win sometimes needs additional DLL files to work. Click Here if you find you need them.

    ListZapper v1.0 (370 kb) lets you locate and clear the Most Recently Used (MRU) lists on your system. Most Windows applications (and Windows itself) try to help us out by remembering information that we use frequently, such as the names of files most recently accessed, text strings we have searched for, and so on. These MRU lists are handy, but there are times when we don't want this information to be maintained, such as when we've been working with sensitive files and don't want others to know what we were doing. MRU list information for programs that you rarely use just clutters the registry and thus slows your system. Some applications(for example, Microsoft Word(give you control over the lists they maintain, but most applications do not. ListZapper fills this gap.

    Power Toys for Windows 95 (490 kb) was written by a "rogue" team of Microsoft programmers, most of these "toys" work on any version of Windows, except for the TweakUI program which is meant for Windows 95 only. I have tested Sendtox.inf with WIN9x, NT4, and 2000. The Send To component is the major reason to have this. You can install components individually by right clicking on the desired INF file and selecting install from the menu that pops up. Sendtox.inf should be in all Windows installations, if you ask me.

    TweakUI for Windows 98 (169 kb) is the TweakUI upgrade for WIN98. Use with Power Toys for Windows 95 for a complete Power Toys install. Do not use TweakUI for Windows 95 on Windows 98, or vice-versa. I have never tested this with Windows ME.

    Rebate! Rebate! v2 (5.72 Mb)
    Do you need to remember how much money you've saved using rebates, and which ones are still pending?

After entering the what, where, when, and how much of your rebates, you'll have a clear record of your rebate activity, as well as the net costs of your purchases.

    RegClean v4.1a build 7364.1(781 kb) analyzes Windows Registry keys stored in a common location in the Windows Registry. It finds keys that contain erroneous values, and after recording those entries in the
    Undo.Reg file, it removes them from the Windows Registry.
    RegClean does not fix every known problem with the registry. It does not fix a "corrupt" registry; it only fixes problems with some of the entries that are in a normal registry. It is very possible that RegClean will not correct a problem that you have encountered. RegClean will leave any entries in the registry that it doesn't understand or could possibly be correct.

    WinTidy V2.0 ( 752 kb)

    When the icons on your Windows desktop are moved out of place, you have to hunt around to find what you want and you can't work as efficiently. The most common way to lose your icon layout is when switching to a smaller screen size. Windows shoves the off-screen icons into view, but doesn't put them back when you return to the larger screen size. WinTidy can remember your desktop layout and restore it for you. You can place the icons by hand, or use one of a dozen predefined layouts to automatically arrange icons in the order you choose. Save the arrangement as a named layout that you can restore at will, or associate it with the current screen size. When the screen size changes, WinTidy can automatically load the associated icon layout. And if you want to pack your icons into the smallest possible space, WinTidy will put the entire desktop into "small icons" mode.
