AlomWare Reset
Quickly refresh your PC, without needing to reboot

If your PC seems slow after working on it for a while, you could reboot to get a clean start. But it might take a while, with maybe minutes of hard drive thrashing as various processes restart.

AlomWare Reset tries to achieve a similar effect by cleaning up your system, but without a full restart, and so runs to completion in just a few seconds.

With one click, AlomWare closes visible applications and open windows; ends non-system processes; frees and optimizes memory; clears the clipboard; turns NumLock on; relaunches Startup apps which aren't already running; wakes sleeping drives, and optionally clears your Recent Documents lists, empties the Recycle Bin and removes the junk from your Temp folders.

This is all easy enough to use, too. Launch the program, and in the trial version a copyright message is displayed until you click it (you don't have this delay once you buy a licence). A warning window explains what's about to happen, and offers a few options (you might kill some custom processes, or lock your PC after resetting). Click "Reset now" and the program does its work. Simple.

What's new? (Changelog)

- Bug fix: Trial message was showing for paid users.
- Internal fixes and optimizations.
- Minor changes to the manual.

Verdict:

AlomWare Reset really is a quick way to free up RAM and other system resources, and it's certainly faster than rebooting. We're not sure if it's worth the money - especially as you could achieve similar results with a batch file - but there's no adware in the trial build, so if you like the idea then it's easy to try it for yourself.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
