    SOME NON BIKER LINKS YOU MAY ENJOY

  • I've tried to gather up a few sites where you can find products that will make your life a little easier on your computer and your wallet. Some are shareware, some freeware and others give you a evaluation period to try their programs out. Course if you can live with a nag screen some you can run forever, while others place a time limit on usage. I've always figured if you can afford it buy it if your broke use it until you can buy it. One good thing about it is you have the chance to try them out before parting with your hard earned money. To read what shareware is go here. Of course you'll find a few links that have nothing to do with computers or motorcycles listed here...I just happen to dig em!


    BROWSERS

    C|NET... A new service that provides the fastest access to the latest browser downloads and plug-ins for both PC and Mac users.

    Opera...This browser kicks butt, I've used it for years. Without a doubt the fastest browser out there.

    UTILITIES

    WinRAR... Archive utility for Windows
    WinZip...Another archive utility for Windows

    WebWasher...Filters out ads, pop-up windows, scripts, cookies, Web bugs and other Web annoyances. Free for noncommercial use.

    Processor Serial Number Control Utility...The Intel® processor serial number control utility is a Windows* program that enables or disables the reading of the Pentium® III processor serial number by software. This allows users to control which software programs or websites have permission to read the processor serial number. When installed, the utility runs automatically each time the system is started.

    Patch...Seems everyone wants to track you. Windows 98 Registration Wizard which is used when you register your copy of Win98 with Microsoft, also generates a unique hardware ID number and a Microsoft ID number based on your PC's configuration and the data you enter during registration. This information can be viewed and even manipulated by any Web site you visit. Windows Magazine has a patch to remove this information from your registery.

    Download Dunce

    Think of all the steps you go through in Windows 95 to connect to the Internet. Sure, it's less complicated than Windows 3.1 or NT, but it's no holiday. First, you have to open your connection profile, click Connect and wait for the connection -- if there's a busy signal or a connection problem, you may have to do this repeatedly. Once you finally have a connection you have to startup your applications.

    This process of Internet connection becomes an accepted routine, but it can become annoying if you have to do it several times a day, especially on a slower PC. In an ideal world, it could all happen with a single click of the mouse and that's the aim of Dunce.


    Encrypted Magic Folders...

    Encrypted Magic Folders (EMF) is a Windows 95 utility that ensures private data remains that way. Once installed by running MAGIC.EXE EMF becomes a powerful program that optionally hides and encrypts data in any specified folder. Simply add a folder to the list and tell EMF to hide and/or encrypt it and the program does the rest.

    ZDNet Password Pro...

    ZDNet's Password Pro 32 is a handy utility that helps you track your various passwords. Use the program to store a list of user names, passwords, and system information, and to set expiration warnings. Free.

    Encryption...Have a need to secure your files for whatever reasons? Here's some encryption programs for Windows 95.

    Kremlin...This is excellent software. In its most secure setting, Kremlin uses 160 bits of encryption key. If one billion computers were each searching one billion keys per second, it would take over 1013 years to recover a file encrypted with Kremlin. That's 10,000,000,000,000 years, more than the life of the universe!

    F-Prot AntiVirus Program...

    The English shareware version of F-PROT is free of charge for any individual using it on his/her personal owned computer, which is not used for a commercial purpose.

    Symantec Corp...

    Some great utilities here. Norton Utilities has saved my butt many times over the years. If you only have room for one program in your budget this should be it. Also check out the software called Secret Stuff. It allows you to send encrypted files to anyone and they don't have to have the software loaded on their computer as long as you give them the password you choose for the file they will be able to open it.

    Map This...

    Writing HTML code for client-side image maps is a snap with Map This. This free authoring utility looks at your .GIF or JPG image files, letting you layout portions of the image to be mapped to URL addresses.

    The best IRC client out there for PC users. Mac users should go here to download Ircle's latest version. If your seeking some fun or information in chat channels. Be forewarned this sucker can waste a lot of your time when you could be riding but it's cool when for whatever reason you find yourself house bound. Can be very addictive I know folks whose lives revolve around IRC.
