'HijackThis' Log / Result Checker
  Use this tool for your 'HijackThis' log. 'HijackThis' result logs can be confusing as to what you should / should not remove. This site ( which is connected to the HijackThis site ) will allow you to copy and paste your results. The program will then flag up and give explanations for anything it finds that it thinks shouldn't be there.

(WARNING! When using HijackThis, be absolutely sure on what you are deleting, even when using this tool )

  Found this useful little piece of software. Works as an add-on to IE/Firefox.

If there is a snippet of information on a website that you want to keep (e.g a quote, a book you'd like to read, something you want to research) you can just clip the bit of the page out, rather like you would in 'the old days' with newspapers.

It's free, and I am finding it very useful. You can add your clips directly to your blog, as well.

  Instalinux helps create customized Linux installations. Choose which flavor of Linux, which options you want to install and it will create images of boot ISOs and/or complete sets of Linux disks containing only the software you select.

This is great if you have lots of Linux workstations to autoinstall with a standard build, or for building different flavors of Linux for use with virtualisation eg VMWare or Xen.
