    Hope this is in the right section of the boards...if not would a mod please move it;)

    Thought I would kick this one of again...:)

    StartupMonitor
    StartupMonitor is a small utility that runs transparently (it doesn't even use a tray icon) and notifies you when any program registers itself to run at system startup. It prevents those utterly useless tray applications from registering themselves behind your back, and it acts as a security tool against trojans like BackOrifice or Netbus.

    RBTray

    This little tool allows you to minimize any window into the tray area by right-clicking on window's minimize box.
    [A little tip here,,,,if you go to desktop properties>appearance>advanced in the drop down box select "Active Title Bar" and reduce the size to 20 or below, a simple right click on the minimize button sends it to the tray :cool: ]

    Well a couple to kick the thread off...post your favorite "Free software" programmes.

    I just want to say again about Spybot Search & Destroy http://security.kolla.de
    and about Emule that was posted there are a few good mods like: The Black Hand 6 Pe and the current best in my opinion, MorTillo 1.9d. all are in the Official Forums Mod's section.
