    I've mentioned Gizmo Richards' Tech Support Alert website before but just to reiterate it contains some very useful to free software and tech support sites and you can also register for a very informative free tech support newsletter that is sent out from time to time. For example, if AAM contributors can't provide the answer to your tech support problem then it might be worth trying some of the support sites listed. Hope this helps.

    Top 100 downloads. probably a lot of the same downloads as contained in the other links but I like the way this one is organised.

    I have just started using Copernic Desktop Search and it seems pretty good so far - and doesn't seem to suffer from the same security/privacy concerns as other alternatives. In particular much better for searching emails than the unpredicatable search facility built into Outlook.

    Could I also recommend http://www.x1.com/ for desktop searches. I find it better than Google or Copernic (partly because I use Eudora for email).

    Supports a huge range of file types.

    Try launchy a little app that makes it easier to open applications. Been testing today and find it useful. 2 tips, definitely read the pdf before use and make sure you know the name of the app youre trying to open.

    Finding windows slow to boot up? Try this startup program delayer, windows starts a number of programs at startup and usually wont let you do anything until all programs have started. This app will let you delay some of the programs until after youve started windows and are working away. I gave it a quick test and got good results.

    I just signed up for Gizmo Richards' Premium SE Edition of his newsletter/website. For a mere $10 it is well worth it in my opinion. Especially considering the benefit I already got from his free version.

    Nice one, car. Now can anyone recommend a download assistant (without the spyware of the dreaded GetRight, etc.) that would 'harvest' from all those links instead of having to right-click/save-as on each of them individually? :)
