Sysinternals Suite
Understand and solve a host of PC problems with this powerhouse troubleshooting suite

The Sysinternals Suite collects all the Windows Sysinternals troubleshooting tools into a single file.

This includes Autoruns, for instance, still the most detailed way to view all the programs that are configured to launch when Windows and various system applications load.

You get Process Explorer, a supercharged version of Task Manager that shows you a huge amount of information about the programs running on your PC, what they're doing, and the resources they're consuming.

Process Monitor offers a powerful way to zoom in on a particular application. Have you ever run into problems with a program that keeps crashing for no apparent reason, say? Process Monitor can log all its hard drive, Registry and other actions, often helping you figure out the cause, and maybe get it fixed.

There's also RootkitRevealer, a simple malware-hunting tool; TCPView, a way to watch your PCs network connections in real time; PageDefrag, a tool to defragment your paging file and Registry; and many others, a total of 66 programs in one, single ZIP file.

Many of these programs really aren't for PC novices. And there's no front end menu to help the less experienced find their way around. Still, these are some of the best Windows troubleshooting utilities in the world, so if you've any interest in trying to solve PC problems then they're an essential download. Go grab a copy immediately.

Verdict:

An excellent suite of PC monitoring and troubleshooting tools. Some are experts-only, others (like TCPView) are more straightforward, but there really is plenty here for everyone

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
