Here you will find couple of interesting small utilities for customizing display on your desktop and in context menu. Not only freeware but also open source.

LOL

Cracklock is the leader in the hard task of repairing a bug included in a growing number of sharewares that a polymorph virus, known as the "30th day" virus, currently attacks. To repair these sharewares, Cracklock uses techniques that even McAfee, Norton, Thunderbyte and F-Proot seem to ignore.

Since mid 2005 I've had a file on my desktop that I couldn't delete. It was hidden(transperant icon), no extension and had a file name like a temp internet folder.

Tried deleting it all the normal ways. Startup mode. Million 3rd party deletion programs. An old ppriest and a young priest. Nothing worked.

The file cannot be deleted because another system or process is using it.

Then I found Unlocker,
http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
the file was gonein a second.
The installer and Program files are far under 1mB. It does take about 2mB of ram though. But there's no reason to keep it on all the time.

I also recommend unlocker, which I used yesterday to delete a folder hooked onto the Windows logon application. However, the program doesn't have to be running all the time. You can just right-click on a file or folder, and you should see "Unlocker" as one of the menu items.

KKrieger (96 Kb): http://produkkt.abraxas-medien.de/kkrieger
Screenshot A
Screenshot B
kkrieger (Krieger = German for warrior) is a first-person shooter computer game created by the German demo group .theprodukkt (a former subdivision of farbrausch group) and won first place in the 96k game competition at Breakpoint in April 2004. The game remains a beta version as of 2006.

The entire game uses only 97,280 bytes of disk space. Much of this small size is attributable to the game's use of procedurally generated content. In contrast, most popular first-person shooters fill one or more CDs or DVDs. Unreal Tournament 2004, for example, requires more than 5 gigabytes, which equals more than 50,000 times of disk space in comparison. (According to the developers, .kkrieger itself would take up around ~200-300MB space, when stored the conventional way.)

.theprodukkt has been developing .kkrieger since mid 2002, using their tool called .werkkzeug (Werkzeug = German for tool). (They used a unreleased version of .werkkzeug called .werkkzeug3.)

System requirements

* 1.5GHz Pentium 3 / Athlon or faster
* 512MB of RAM
* GeForce 4Ti (or higher) or ATI Radeon 8500 (or higher) graphics card supporting pixel shader 1.3
* DirectSound-compatible sound hardware
* DirectX 9.0b
* Microsoft Windows

It's an amazingly detailed game, especially considering its size, but it has some steep system requirements to do it.

Shellexview is a small tool to manage shell extensions.

When you've got a lot of programs that have inserted options into your system's context menus without your asking (like "add to playlist", "scan for trojans" and all that crap) you can disable them one by one with this.

I especially like to disable Windows Media Player extensions (because I use VLC for all videos, anyway).

Hi guys. I heartily recommend you to try following kick-ass freeware:

1) Avafind 955 KB: windows fastest search tool. Find everything as-you-type, including folders, displays folder sizes instantly, index new files on the fly. Since I installed it I never navigated thru folders again.
http://www.think-less-do-more.com/

2) Strokeit 104 KB: mouse gestures. Do you like a mouse with additional buttons? Read this

StrokeIt is an advanced mouse gesture recognition engine and command processor. What is a mouse gesture? Mouse gestures are simple symbols that you "draw" on your screen using your mouse. When you perform a mouse gesture that StrokeIt can recognize, it will perform the "action" associated with that gesture. In short, it's a nifty little program that lets you easily control programs by drawing symbols with your mouse.

Ram consumption is always under 200 KB! http://www.tcbmi.com/strokeit/

3) Autohotkey: sorry but the size is about 1700 KB. However it is worth mentioned here as its the best program ever made for me. I really can’t leave without it. Its limited only by your imagination. Ram consumption about 2 MB.
# Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
# Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
# Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
# Create custom data entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
# Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
# Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
# Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
# Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey inst

Statement of the obvious: Microsoft's power management sucks. On most of my computers, it always goes screwy after a while. Most recently, my laptop has started refusing to (time-delay) turn off the screen by itself. It just does not work anymore, no matter how often I adjust the setting.

The easy answer to these problems is the XIN Screensaver. It's a screensaver that functions as power management; it doesn't just make the screen go black (which is all that a normal screensaver does), it turns off the backlight of my notebook just like the power saver used to do. Chances are you'll need it someday. There are some extra options, too.

Xplorer²: dual pane explorer replacement. Huge improvement over regular Explorer, but still quite similar, so it doesn't look unfamiliar in the slightest.

Yeah, it's 5 mb. But that limit is getting out of date, guys. Programs keep growing, it's the natural state of affairs.

Chameleon (no longer in development). Great for hiding files via pw encryption in their software.

Plane 28K

http://www.nimserv.com/images/plane.exe

It's not a really a program, but a game. Really addictive and a great way to kill some quick time.

Press Entre 3 times to get it going. Dodge all the asteroids. Use to play it all the time during class.

http://filerepair.sourceforge.net/

Checks a file for corruptions vs an original and repairs efficiently. Useful after a very large FTP session, or similar that doesn't normally do hash checks.

Default image editor selector. When you open an image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, there is an icon that you can click to edit the picture, which opens up Paint by default. This 21K program allows you to set that to any program you like:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/imgeditor.htm
XP only, sez the creator.

System Information for Windows. Similar to Everest. 1.3 MB but very useful.
http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
Avast STILL gives me a false positive on this, after a couple of years of use.

WinDirStat. Gives a graphical representation of all your files on your computer, or a selected drive or directory. Very useful in cleaning up drives. 636 K exe, although it creates about another 1M of files in the folder it's run from.
http://windirstat.info/

REST2514. Undelete utility, 192K.
http://www.snapfiles.com/download/dlrestoration.html
Link will open the page and start the DL automatically.

IcoFX, freeware XP/Vista icon (.ico) editor. I've only used it to import PNGs I've created in Photoshop, but it has its own image editing capability. 1.3 MB.
