Perfect Menu lets you customize the right-click context menus. You create
custom menus, define within which programs they appear, and where they
appear (to the left or on top of the Windows context menu).
Applications can be automatically run at startup from many places.

apps can be disabled, moved to run from a different location (e.g. from
Win.ini to the Start Up folder) or deleted.
TreeComp will compare two directories, report the differences between them, and
synchronize their contents. It can also monitor the directories to quickly detect
changes made by other programs.
It's amazing how much you can customize your system by editing the registry.

gives you access to all the settings in a easy to use interface and without the
risk of ruining your system.
Think your keyboard's Windows Key is useless? Not anymore. WinKey turns it
