abhay: clamwin does not has a resident shield thing, i gave it "useable" rating ( ** )
Hey can some mod start a thread for "free s/w; goodies; whatever" sites?
Like this sysinternals site has bunch of handy stuff, i can't add all of those here..
So if some mod/staff mem takes responsiblity of maintaining that thread, it will be nice
we can have diff. sections too.. like windows; linux; etc etc..

Fprot for DOS
This is the all-time favourite on-demand virus-scanner for MS-DOS versions. It detects all the viruses covered by F-Prot Antivirus for Windows and has very extensive command line options which makes it more versatile. F-Prot Antivirus for DOS is free for personal use.
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.

You do need a player that is capable of playing RealMedia. The included Media Player Classic supports it and works very well. Supported: RealAudio (.ra .rpm), RealMedia (.rm .ram .rmvb .rpx .smi .smil), RealText (.rt), ReadPix (.rp), RealMedia embedded in webpages. .smi and .smil files sometimes only play the first part of a clip. This is a limitation of the current Media Player Classic. The RealMedia Browser plugin supports Internet Explorer, Opera, Netscape and Mozilla.
ZipGenius is a zip tool suite that has all the functions of a typical compression utility plus a ton of extra features. It not only zips and unzips but also offers support for 21 compression and encoding/decoding formats, zip encyrption/decryption, PocketPC support via ActiveSync, drag-and-drop support, integration in Windows shell, sending archive via e-mail, and Web publishing of archives and files via FTP and TWAIN devices support.

I came across this good freeware utility - PageDefrag
In fact the site www.sysinternals.com has many such (mostly open source) freeware utilities (developed by them) which can help you with the internal workings with your OS (be it windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP/2003 as well as Linux). Here are some snippets -
Disclaimer : Please note that the above mentioned utilities are meant for advanced users only. If you cant understand what the utility is meant for, please dont try them.
