Tools and Software to Improve your PC

Maintaining PC performance and overall computing experience is an important task which could prevent troubles, improve production and prevent future data loss.

However searching for the right ways to do this could be a daunting task. that's where ISCNitzan comes in to the rescue!

We decided to accumulate a list of tools we found, often available for a free download, which we ourselves use quite frequently and we believe to be of grate value.


So - here we go:



Free Antivirus & Spy-ware Protection
AVG Antivirus Free - by far the best protection you can get! Easily integrates into windows and works in a way that does not interrupt your work or occupy much of your PC resources.

Free Windows Registry backup & optimize
ERU NT - ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed.

Free Windows Power Toys (for Windows XP)
Windows Power Toys - Power Toys are a set of special tools designed to add unique sets of functionality to your standard windows experience.

Free Network Optimizer
Dr. TCP - is a very small program which enables you to tweak your Internet Connection Settings to be optimized.
