    Sorry folks, the "views count" glitch was my fault, I merged a couple of posts into this one that were posted as seperate topics and used the wrong thread as the "base" so it inherited the new thread's views count.

    Ahh... I found a nice one today, it's called Drempels v1.4 . What it does, is replace the desktop wallpaper, and replaces it with a screensaver like effect. Looks really nice.

    It will also work with Windows XP, but if you want "Drempels Desktop" to run at Startup, you'll need to place a copy of "Run Drempels Desktop" shortcut (icon) in the Startup folder under All Programs. Don't select if from the "Configure Drempels" option.

    What about MouseImp from TV4studios?

    It allows you to right-click and drag a page up and down, rather than scrolling with the wheel or seeking out the scroll bars. Even on long pages like this forum, you grab it in the middle of the screen and drag it all the way to the top or bottom in one pass.

    I like it so well, I went back to ME after discovering it wouldn't work in XP.

    Just thought that I would add another one to the list:

    Broken Cross CD manager, it is a great program that catalogues cds. Makes it easy to find the rest of my programs.

    I've been following this thread with much interest, and have noted a lot of programs I already use (irfanview, spybot S&D, CDex, and more) as well as dozens more programs that I've never heard about but plan on trying out!

    Here's my 2 bits:

    Flexible Renamer Yes, I know that there was another renamer utility (rjhsomethingorother), but I tried it and couldn't get it to work, so I did a search and came across this. Was a breeze to use, and no install!

    Smart FTP Excellent FTP client.

    GuildFTPd Just learned of this one, but it's working great, and no problems thus far!

    Zonealarm I don't remember if someone has already plugged it, but hey, it's so good it deserves another mention as the easiest (but still highly effective) firewall out there! (hope the link works)

    Notetab Quick and powerful MS Notepad replacement

    my favorite small programs -

    polyview - the slide show is a great feature for
    finding that pic you forgot the name of
    and/or viewing an entire collection of
    pictures. select the length of time each
    photo is viewed(1-15 seconds).

    1by1 - i recently found this mp3 player, all it does
    is play mp3. something like 45kb download.
    who needs all the flash and tinsel when all
    i really want is to hear the music .

    both require win95 minimum and
    these can be found at download .com ie cnet.
    i love to tinker, my ideas may be unorthodox.i don't suggest it if i
    haven't tried it. it might not remember
    how well it worked, only that it did.
    My PC:
    Intel 865GLC motherboard,
    Intel P4 2.40CGhz Northwood socket 478,
    1,512MB Samsung 3200 DDR,WD 80GB 800JB,
    Toshiba 16X DVD-ROM,Lite-On DVD-RW,
    Saphire Radeon 9250 256MB DDR video,
    3C905TX NIC,Audigy LS,450watt PS.
    Dual boot WinME and XP SP2 .
