    VERY handy thread, very usefull- thanks MrSeanKon.

    BTW, one thing I use that I don't see up in your links- PC Wizard. http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php

    It's nothing amazing, just another system tool, but I thought that it was worth bringing up.

    There's a free version and one for very cheap money which can do slightly more.

    BETANEWS.COM is more uptodate, more quickly than MAJORGEEKS.COM.

    Both of them miss programs that the other might list.

    VOODOOFILES.com is the most comprehensive way to capture the latest versions of all files; especially shareware and commercial-ware. It has so many updates every day, with inadequate file descriptions, that I don't bother with it too much.
