Requesting an update to the link provided for the program The Godfather in the Audio category.

Old link: http://audiooctopus.planetmungo.co.uk/tgf/
is broken.

New link: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/godfather.html
works and appears to be evil free.

Muchas gracias. :)

Multiple Desktops utility by SysInternals, the same guy who made Process Explorer and AutoRuns.

It's a whopping 62Kb and my download took aagges. Needs a torrent, TBH. ;)

Warning - very basic.

jDownloader

If you use Rapidshare or any similar sites, this is a fantastic little app. Captures links from the clipboard, integrates nicely with premium accounts, unintrusive, nice looking, automatically extracts compressed (and multi-part) files etc. Wonderful.

AnyBurn or WinISO.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.

I didn't even notice it was Helios who was asking until you pointed out and I was thinking to myself, he's normally right on the money when it comes to technical stuff.

I just installed Super and after unchecking the bundled programs on install I got a crap ton of malware/ i'd suggest listing another video conversion utility. Not really sure how to clean it up now cos windows defender can't find it all.
