(all Windows versions)
When it's not possible to change the screensaver settings in your Windows environment, then it's almost impossible to show things on your screen for a longer period without activating the screensaver.
This little program prevents the display to go into screensaver mode when it's running, simple and easy. The program does not change anything in Windows, so when the program is closed, the screensaver will work as before.
IPSwitcher v184.108.40.206 zip setup

Switch IP configurations from the tray menu. Easy and simpel configure your IP settings for IPv4 and IPv6 with Internet Explorer proxy settings
Just download the zip-file or use the setup for simple click and go.
|Reset / refresh the display, so everything is redrawn. I've made this for my laptop that has a display problem when coming out of hibernate or standby. The position where the mouse was located has a strange square mask on the display that does not want to go away. The only way it wants to go away is a display reset, so I made this tool for that purpose.
Netgear WLAN on/off 2.1
Enable or disable the wireless LAN of the Netgear WGR614v6 Router automatically by running this application from the command line.
This program can be used from a scheduler, so at a given time, the wireless LAN can be disabled or enabled for security reasons.
More functions are added in version 2.0. Connection with internet can be released and renewed. Attached devices can be shown and when you a Internet browser, the standard settings pages can be opened without loggin in. An extra check is added in version 2.1 to allow Internet Explorer to be used. The URL login security for Internet Explorer can be turned on and off.
Just unpack and run it from anywhere on the disk. When running without parameters the settings dialog will be shown.
Delete Locked v1.5
Delete locked files from disk.
This program can delete files that are locked by a program for some reason. I made this program because when I'm cleaning my disk and some file does not want to be deleted. I will forget to delete it the next time, so it never gets deleted anymore.
Also when a virus or ad-ware program does not want to be deleted, then this tool is very handy for killing them.
First this tool will try to delete the files normally. When that does not work, the files will be marked for deletion for the next boot time. After restarting the PC, the files will be deleted as if they where uninstalled by an uninstaller.
It can also be used to show what files will be delete at the next Windows restart. The 'View pending' button will only be shown when there are files that will be removed for the next boot.
Now also with file information dialog and options to change the properties of the file simply.

|Time synchronize application that gets its time from SNTP Time Servers.
It sets the localtime, so filetimes are NOT changed.
This program is made becouse the standard Windows XP automatic-synchronize-with-internet-time sets the systemtime in UTC (Universal Time Coordinated, also known as GMT, or Greenwich Mean Time)
Setting systemtime changes the time from the files on disk. Very handy when backup programs see all files as changes and backs-up all those files again.
That also happens when Summer time changes to Winter time and back (Daylight Savings). Hooray for Microsoft!
This is a known bug in Windows and Microsoft will NOT fix it (Q129574) It aplies to all Windows version from NT4.0, 2000, XP and above.
Summer and Winter time is also taken in account with TimeSync (for now only European dates, but will add other transition dates at request). List with sntp-servers added in zip-file.
So, solve a Microsoft bug and have always the correct time by using this nice program at no cost at all!!! ;-)
|When a program is trying to contact the internet (at boot time)
and you have only a modem, then the Dialup dialog comes up.
For closing that Dialup dialog automaticly this program can be used.
See CloseDialUp.txt in zip for more information.
|Delete the Company rotating logo from your
Internet Explorer. It can then be replaced with something else if you like.
It looks very smooth and is much better than that globe or letter e.
|Closes the modem port when it is stays open after boot. Read the txt file in zip.
Ever lost a password and it was only known by a
program that was showing it with those nice ****.
Bin there, done that. So I made a little program that
reads the password from a editbox with ****
Just move your mouse over it and press the spacebar so the button is pressed. Then there should be the readable password in the programs editbox.
Use WinSpy for all Windows versions (see below)
