        Daemon Tools Lite doesn't surprise me at 7. Other than that, I don't think I'd have guessed a single one of these. Calendar Magic sounds like something I'd really like to work with some. I'll try it at some point as I guess the numbers can't be wrong.

        11-25 is almost as surprising, but I would say 3 or 4 of those I might have guessed. People really should be finding more of the portable system tools and maintenance apps. Also, the optimizer apps and other generally IT type lightweight apps. Those are the ones that will give people what they are looking for when it comes to the reliability and to the stable performance of their PC. They're the first ones to get. Good examples are SpeedFan or ProcessLasso. There are so many file management programs that are really great too. Q-Dir is good but there are many great options. Small programs like autoruns are good to have. That's another one I like to recommend, even though the important Windows start up menu can be found in CCleaner which I also recommend. Every PC operator should be able to understand the importance of and use autoruns, though. The last one I will mention are from MS...Process Explorer. Can't forget a good System Information program like PC Wizard. Desktop meters help, too. Again, these are the first things people should be going for on a new machine...just my opinion...

            Good one, marco.

            An interesting part of your comment F/S........
            ............ Every PC operator should be able to understand the importance of and use autoruns, though..........

            From my long-time experience, a large majority of PC operators just 'jump in and drive', no autoruns, outdated A/V, no malware destroyers, no maintenance etc;........then complain at the cost of resurrection by a 'techie'!

                Got that right my friends, Jonno, my friends don't complain about cost, they just come knocking on my door with a pathetic look on their faces saying, " Claw if you got time to look at this, let me know how much and when I get the money.....". Or, "Hey Claw, can you do me a favor" ??
                That's why I practice saying "NO" so much.

                    Thanks Jonno...good point...

                    Claw, you are a sucker from the word go amigo. Seriously, I would break it worse, so I just stand clear, especially when it comes to viruses and malware. The best I ever can do is suggest one of the tech sites for a serious repair or FBB for software and advice...

                        Oh, I catch back on the favors FS, don't worry about that, I always catch back. But most of the time I can take care of the problem pretty quick and easy. It's my problems that are usually so difficult.

                            I don't have many friends or family locally since moving house, but I get the phone calls, "Jonno, how do I fix XYZ problem, will you email the details ".
                            The phone calls are infrequent now since my answer is, " If you allow me to log into your computer, I can probably fix it myself from here, and you will see the cursor which I am using, not you".

                            The answer is generally, "Er.....er....er....er.....YOU can see what is in my computer !"

                            I answer, "Yes", and the general reply is, "Oh, I didn't want to trouble you, I will try a few things and let you know".

                            "OK, Bye Y'all!", says Ii'l ol' me.
