Process Explorer 14 brings better multi-process app support, new monitoring tools (Download Squad)

Nov 17th 2010 9:50PM Thanks for this information. I've updated to this latest version.

How to uninstall Internet Explorer 9 (Download Squad)

Sep 19th 2010 1:06AM Yes, the instructions worked great for me. IE8 is working like before.

Screenshot Tour: Process Explorer 12 is now out (Download Squad)

Apr 9th 2010 3:31AM Andy is correct. When I have hovered over an "svchost.exe" process, I have always seen a list of the services for that "svchost.exe" process. This is not new in version 12.

So long, taskbar thumbnails! Aero Peek gets disabled in Chromium (Download Squad)

Apr 5th 2010 1:45PM I agree. Also, Aero Peek support isn't quite finished in Google Chrome v5.0.366.2 Dev:

1) New tabs you haven't visited yet appear blank in the taskbar thumbnails,
2) The tab at the top doesn't change when you peek at the different tabs.

Maybe people will like Aero Peek more once it is fully finished.

Google releases Chrome 5 Beta (Download Squad)

Download every Sports Illustrated 2010 swimsuit photo with a Perl script (Download Squad)

Feb 12th 2010 2:24PM Klerud is absolutely right. Just install ActivePerl and then copy the wget.exe that he links to into your %windir% (i.e. C:\Windows) directory. The script ran just fine for me on Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Hate the new Windows 'start menu'? Get the classic XP menu back with this little app! (Download Squad)

Nov 21st 2009 4:44PM Why is this even necessary? Windows already has "Classic Start menu". Just right click on the Windows Orb, click on Properties, and then click on "Classic Start menu" (under the "Start Menu" tab). Why is it necessary to install another application?

Apple finally lets you check out iTunes store without installing iTunes (Download Squad)

Nov 15th 2009 3:10AM Exactly right! The first thing iTunes Preview tells you is

Opening the iTunes Store.
If iTunes doesn’t open, click the iTunes application icon in your Dock or on your Windows desktop.

And then iTunes opens. So what is the point of this?
