I try a lot of apps in my search for quality freeware and sometimes you can run into apps that will mess with your system in unwanted ways, this happened to me a few times with...bad results, because of that i began to look for a way to test programs without having to worry about possible side effects and came up with the awesome Altiris Software Virtualization Solution (SVS). This is a virtualization program that basically lets you test any app without fear. Altiris SVS can put any program into a layer that sits outside Windows, while a program is in the layer it will act normal however once you decide to erase the program's layer all the changes that a program has made to Windows will be undone like they never happened! Altiris SVS can even put the entire system into a layer, handy if you want to test that a certain change in Windows actually works. Also since you can import and export layers you can potentially do some nifty tricks like for example installing games much faster that you can with the standard way, i haven't tried that myself tough. My only nag with the program is that you need a license in order to use it however one can be obtained without too much trouble by just going to a site. Anyway if testing a certain program or Windows change without having to worry sounds appealing to you then by all means give a Altiris SVS a chance. Available for all Windows versions.

I know that updates have been painfully slow lately and i also know that some of your comments haven't been showing up on the site (they haven't been moderated), the reason for all of this is simple: I am lazy bum. So now that we have that painful truth out of the way i am gonna talk about Foobar skins, more precisely a specific (will do a round up later) Foobar Skin called Kameleon which can be downloaded here. If you have ever tried installing a Foobar skins from deviant art or any any other place you may have run into the annoying problem that you have to download a certain Foobar component, Font or even a specific Foobar version. Well this is not the case with Kameleon since everything that you need is in a single compressed file that works with the latest Foobar version (0.9.6.9 as of this writing). As you can see my Foobar looks pretty good with Kameleon installed and besides a few minor nitpicks i feel pretty good about using this skin. So if the above screenshot looks good to you download Kameleon, extract it to your Foobar install directory and follow the configuration instructions on the Kameleon page and you will be set in no time.

a-squared Anti-Malware 4.5 is a commercial anti malware, trojan, spyware and rootkit solution that just happen to be free for today only! actually is more like a 40 dollar discount that it's applied to all the a-squared Anti-Malware orders which means that a license for a single computer for a year gets discounted to zero. Still a 1 year license for personal use isn't so bad of a deal so if you been having problems with malware lately you could give it a try, just remember that's just for today so hurry up and sign up!
