Is this the correct collective noun for operating systems? Maybe a stack?
Perhaps collective nouns could use its own thread in the pub

The primary purpose of Delindex is to delete Index.dat files which are never resized, and only get bigger. These files contain all your web surfing history since they were (re)created, and large index.dat files can cause performance issues with browsing. Index.dat files cannot be deleted if Explorer is running. The secondary purpose is to delete junk files for reasons of space, privacy, and performance. Delindex is "stand-alone" program and requires no installation and no other files to run. All notes are within the program, so there are no separate ReadMe or Help files.

On the first page, why is the link given for Ad-aware is for the German site (www.adaware.de) and not the www.lavasoftusa.com?

This afo I found the German site to be really slow ....

under system tools

Aida32 -- reports system components names and manufacture, even has hyperlinks straight to a companies Driver, BIOS etc page.

PS theres an installer binary floating around the net, i have the zip version where you dont have to go through the install process; if anyone wants.

I find http://www.snapfiles.com/freeware/freeware.html to be a great source of tools, proggies etc that are all priced very cheap and which are not warez.

jem10,

Taking a screenshot is easy as in windows. Here are the hot-keys:

Alt + Print Screen
Takes a screenshot of the window that is currently in focus.

Print Screen
Takes a fullscreen screenshot.

You will need a thirdparty program like The Gimp (free, has screenshot capabilities), PaintShop Pro ($$$, has built in screen capture abilities) or Photoshop ($$$$) to save it to a file. For photoshop, you just create a new image, accepting the defaults and then Edit -> Paste the screenshot. In The Gimp 2.0.2, you just go File -> Acquire -> From clipboard...

Or you could just use XnView to do the lot quickly:

Edit: If you interested, take a look at the Gimp:
