Great job CaPMan! This is pretty much what i meant on the thread i posted asking for this kind of list! I like the one stop shop at lunarsoft, so we dont have to look all over the place for things.

Another suggestion to make this portion of the site even better. Maybe someone qualified could provide a brief desription of what each type of software can be used for, and roughly how it works?

Just a suggest. Awesome addition to the site! :P

may i suggest that you add in to the AIM links the triton version? its off of beta now. All you do is install the adhack installation and adhack installs aim for you without the adds.

Also - I say we put a Recomend by Winamp. I only use the lite version of it, but i could write up a pro/con of each type of winamp if you want.

I've heard about that before. Mostly on the Winamp forums so my ideas on it might be biased :eyeroll: But honestly, i dont really have memory issues now that ive learned about like startup junk and extra processes and stuff. And also, all my audio files are aac or mp3 anyways. So im sticking with winamp, ive used it since around early version 2. Im connected with it at the hip :shocking:

Track IP Addresses

to find information on a certain website such as if they have been on a blacklist or the name of the site owner. you can also track where a certain email originated from. both links are easy to use


You can get a lot of information about an IP address here, too:


Just put in the IP address or URL where it says Name Spinner.

Also i think 'freeware list' should be added to the Lunarsoft menu.

How about a category for apps to password-protect and/or encrypt files? Not sure what to call it, File Protection, maybe? There's a thread on CCleaner forums about the subject, mentioned a lot of programs that I'd never heard of. I have no clue how they compare. When somebody asked for something like this a while back, I came up with this one: Win-Guard Pro 2005 http://www.windowsguard.com/products.html

It looked good to me, but whether it is any good I have no basis to judge. Anybody here know much about this type of program?

this link is broken

listed under DESKTOP HELPERS

GT Ripple



This link is now mended. :shocking:

One or two of the links are incorrect e.g. decrypter. Capman knows, but because of the problem with his home computer, it may be just a little while before he get them all 100%.


All links now work correctly at this present time, (but might be tidied up soon). :D

Added foobar to the list because I know people love it so much. :w00t:

Zone Alarm Free Edition:

Sorts out many things automatically for you, and is much more configurative than other firewalls. The free edition listed below is brilliant, but the Pro version is much better:


Registry Cleaners/Tuners:

Registry First Aid:

Very powerful but extremely safe to use unlike other registry cleaners, thisfind sonly things worth deleting and won't screw up your system - it will just make it better!



A powerful registry searching program, doen't clean things as such, but good for tech's.


P2P (Spyware FREE) Programs:


Perfect for music, as you can download an album in one go in a folder (seperate tracks - not all as one track together)



Mega K-Lite Codec Pack

As told by Darkness "Ultimate Codec Pack. Contains DivX, XVid, 3vid, loads of other codecs, also replaces QuickTime and RealPlayer for use with Media Player. Don't use this if you don't know what you're doing though."


PDF Readers:

Foxit Reader

Far better than Adobes PDF reader, no installation required, tiny program but just as good (if not better) than Adobe's PDF Reader.


Miscellaneous Applications:


Read the link to understand - well worth having for tech's!


PC Appearance Applications:


Allows you to optimize the way your clock looks, very simple and easy to use.


Logon Loader

Allows you to apply different logon loaders that you download.



Replaces old icons that Microsoft have overlooked, and makes the appearance far better, just be careful when installing the extras, I personally didn't want there boot screen and some other stuff, just make sure you know what you are installing, though the icons are excellent.

Some of those may be there - I had to skim read because I'm working :)


Ryan Jones


Thanks Ryan, Have now added the ones that were not already listed.

The list is lookin' good, but I think a few of the entries still need explanatory notes to make it clear what they do.


Explanatory notes will follow slowly but surely.

Of course anyone can post some in here for me to put in place. :)

A few more:



A powerful registry backup application - but far better than backing up the registry wiht regedit, highly recommended.

Discover if the software you're about to install displays pop-up ads, transmits personally identifiable information, uses unique identifiers to track you, or much much more.

Done, except for EULAlyzer, due to the fact that it could possibly mislead people into thinking something is safe to install when it is not or vice versa.

There can be no real substitute than actually reading the EULA when installing a program, unless you truely know it has come from a well known trusted source.

Ok, here's an explanatory note for Win-Guard Pro 2005 (from studying the web site, I believe these features are all found in the free version. Haven't gotten around to trying it out, though):

Allows you to password-protect your programs, windows and web pages, also can encrypt your personal files and folders. With extra features to lock the desktop, boot keys, task keys, block software installations and internet access.

Sure, no worries, just suggesting....
