    Thank you so much for this list. I hope you always keep it updated. I thought this site had reviewed like 10000 tools. 😛

  2. avatar Peter O says:

    I know quite a few programs that are free & weel known generally. I can’t see ttem listed here.
    Perhaps it would be easier to scan the list if it were optionally listed alphabetically.
    Some examples: Image management IrfanView, XnView.

    Rgds & please keep up the good work.

  3. anonymous, I am working on it. 😉

    Peter, why don’t just use the search function of your browser? You can also post the names of the tools as a comment or send me an email. I will find out, if they are in the list.

  7. avatar gexos says:

    Brilliant work.

  8. avatar Paul says:

    None of the links work. They give an error:
    Server error
    The website encountered an error while retrieving http://4sysops.com/archives/free-driverview-view-drivers/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
    Here are some suggestions:
    Reload this webpage later.
    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

  9. Paul, sorry this was a configuration error. It works now. Thanks for the tip.

  10. avatar DCourtel says:

    Hi all, may be you can find useful “Wsus package Publisher”. This tool allow you to publish third party applications like Adobe Reader, Flash player into your wsus server.

  11. avatar atomic1fire says:

    Yumi is an extremely useful tool that works on windows. FYI.

    Turn a flash drive into your own personal bootable OS stick, or an assembly of system admin tools.

    http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

    It lets you create a boot menu and install os’s, for example you could throw on an distro for antiviruses, changing a windows password, scanning hardware, etc.

    A flash drive with some bootable tools is a pretty useful thing to have, which is why YUMI is a good thing to have on that list.

    On that note Powershell could have an mention even without out that other stuff. It’s basically .net api’s in a terminal. You can add your own functions to a user profile using the power shell command “Notepad $profile”.

    Also ninite.com is a pretty useful tool for personal use, although you have to pay to use it specifically for IT stuff.

  17. avatar Fedya says:

    A bulk renaming utility like BatchRenameFiles Tool is all I suggest for an admin in his belt. Thanks

  18. avatar h says:

    best to include a zip file to download chunk of tools or family of tools
