After strolling down memory lane in the "anyone remember these?" thread over in the general forum, I found this in my web addresses folder. http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/hoax.html It's symantecs hoaxes page. It lists hoax emails that are out there to try to strike fear into people for no reason. I remember when emails were going around saying elfbowl was a time release virus that would be released on Christmas day.

Although it doesnt sem to support newest dx versions verywell it can delete them so you can reinstall.


Multimedia
klcodec mega pack
This is a must, it covers any codec available for multimedia, uses old versions of media player to view real player and quicktime files with out the bs, it also includes dvd, xvid,divx etc, since its origin is unknown to me, do a google for klcodec

VLC
videolan media player, can play anything, uses dx technology, small dl,
can play dat files in p2p programs and broken avi programs with no worry of scripts.
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

PSP, jasc software , best image editor for the price

winamp 3.0 or lower, awesome for online radio stations using shoutcast.com

TMPGENC, encoder for video editing

renamer
rename files in batches, great for mp3s (id tag editor) and images

I didn't see anyone post this either:
www.avast.com

excellent free anti-virus with real-time shielding.

Also, more of a network sniffer then hardware utility but:

http://www.ethereal.com/download.html

Concerning key loggers: If you're worried about it on a public terminal, use XP's built in keyboard and set it to mouse hovering; 1second (some keyloggers takes a snap shot of the screen for every mouse click).... use for password entering (kind of a pain to type everything via on screen keyboard).

My two cents.

Not precisely a utility, but a very useful resource;

Best one I've come across to date.
