CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware!
Fully tried and tested with Windows 98/NT4/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista. It’s currently partially compatible with 64bit XP and Vista, there are a few non-critical issues which are still being worked on.
I thought I would let people know, that the final build of ÂµTorrent is officially out now. It comes in as v1.8 build 11758. The first thing I noticed about the new build is a new icon, aqua-ish, whilst a minimal change, it still is nice.
Well, that’s all for now, happy Âµtorrenting. Now remember, stay legal .

Microsoft is denying a recent report that suggests it deliberately included a technical loophole in Windows Vista that lets users install the OS without paying for the full priced version. In an article that appeared earlier this week in the Windows Secrets newsletter, reporter Scott Dunn noted that the Service Pack 1 version of Windows Vista gives users the option of buying the ‘upgrade edition’ and installing it on any PC, which enables them to avoid paying for the more expensive ‘full’ edition. In the U.S., the list price of the upgrade edition is more than $100 cheaper than the full edition, according to Dunn.
According to Dunn, the same option was available to users when Vista was first released, and Microsoft’s failure to close this loophole in Vista SP1 suggests that the vendor “approved the back door as a way to make the price of Vista more appealing to sophisticated buyers.” But a Microsoft spokesperson disputed the notion that the vendor supports users taking advantage of the technical loophole in Vista.
