WinNC - a convenient file manager supporting tons of handy features for increased productivity Back in the old days, file managers were an absolutely indispensable part of any system, since DOS did not have its own GUI. Norton Commander was one of the most popular and functional solutions of its kind and many users still believe (and not without a reason!) that this type of interface is a lot more convenient for managing files and folders than the one we use in Windows
Wise Registry Cleaner - an all-in-one solution that will keep your registry clean, lean and organized The system registry is a centralized storage of all valuable parameters of the operating system and applications installed in it.

It did impress me! Besides, the only thing youd have to do to bring a piece of that magic to your computer is download and install the latest version of Launch Pivot.
With Launch Pivot, the file search and application launch will no longer bore you; with just a couple of characters entered, you can find what you need in a glance. Want to zoom in the found object? Just place the mouse pointer over it. Right-click on that object, and get a great choice of actions applicable to it. While this launcher utility sits in the tray and doesnt bother you, you can search the Internet (for news, videos, images, maps, books etc.) from any other application by simply selecting the search text and then hitting the search hotkey. And the built-in scheduler will let you automatically launch a variety of search-and-run task at specified times.
Even if you have played enough and want to shut the computer down, rush to close Launch Pivot. The row of extra buttons by the status bar will let you lock, stand-by or shutdown the computer right there, and, certainly, with a single click.
