Call Screener (Win7) v1.8 Compatible with: Win7 Filename: Call Screener W7 for 64-bit Windows 7.zip Size: 3629 kb Author: Applied Software Technology More Details & Downloads
Description: Call Screener W7 is software that blocks unwanted phone calls. It runs under 64-bit Windows 7, and requires a dial-up modem that has voice and caller ID capability to be installed on your computer. (Note: Call Screener uses only the voice and caller ID features of the modem -- there is no need to "dial-up" anywhere.) When a call is blocked, Call Screener speaks the message contained in the ZapMessage.wav file to the caller. An example ZapMessage.wav file is included in the kit that comes in the download. A separate built-in anonymous caller rejection message instructs the caller how to remove their call blocking. Documentation is also included in the kit. Modems that I've tried and have worked well under 64-bit Windows 7 are the HiRO H50113 USB external modem, and the HiRO H50006 and Rosewill RNX-56AG PCI internal modems. I think the TRENDnet TFM-560U USB external modem may also work, but since I haven't actually tried one, I can't vouch for it. I've included a driver in the kit that supports both caller ID and voice for the HiRO H50113.

Description: Windows 7 style taskbar In Windows XP!
Take control of your taskbar with process grouping
ViGlance groups windows relative to their process. Each open application reserves its own space on the bar. Windows relative to that application are then grouped as children of that application on the bar. This keeps the taskbar clean and better organised into a more logical grouping system.
Enjoy true 48x48 Vista/7 icons from your taskbar
Normally Windows XP and Vista is only capable of showing 16x16 sized icons on the taskbar. Yet we tend to respond better to pictures than text. Meaning we rarely read the text labels on our taskbar. The ViGlance superbar displays full colour 48x48 icons making it quicker to identify and manage your tasks.
Replace that ugly start button with a 7 Orb replica
The start button in Windows XP isn't very pretty; it's too big and ugly and its horrible shade of green. ViGlance replaces that horrible oversized start button with a small and efficient start orb. Whilst at the same time delivering a smooth fade transitional rollover effect like that of Windows 7.
"Glide effortlessly between tasks" - 7 Style transition effects
"Information shouldn't just appear on the screen to the user" (MSDN). ViGlance implements a transition effect system I call "Glide". This is based somewhat on the Aero peak feature from Windows 7. Each group is dynamically resized via the glide animation to fit the size of the available information to be presented, allowing you to "Glide" between each group on the Super Bar.

Resizing is performed using bilinear resampling for the best possible reults. After resizing you can apply various levels of sharpening to further improve image quality.

GreenScreen 1.0 Compatible with: Win9x/NT4/ME/Win2k/XP Filename: GreenScreenSetup.exe Size: 240 kb Author: Jason Ross More Details & Downloads
Description: GreenScreen, while running and enabled, will allow you to set up 'GreenSpots'
on your monitor's virtual desktop. GreenSpots are areas on your desktop which
upon placement of your mouse cursor for a defined amount of time will enable
a power saving mode of your monitor instantly.
GreenScreen is the answer to my problem with the way Windows handles the power
management of my monitor. I found myself constantly in the power scheme settings
either reducing the standby/off time when I planned to be away from my PC or
increasing the time when I came back to prevent it from coming on during a lull
in my input (reading a large document, for example).
My drive to create the utility was born during the 'Blackout of 2003', which
I'm sure has received more than enough media coverage even in the places not
affected, if not more due to the fact that most of our media runs on electricity!
In this trying time, people within the affected area have been told it's a priority
during the recovery to conserve as much power as we can. This was in one small
way, a way for those of us who can't live without our PCs to keep the monitor
on low power as much and as conveniently as possible - which I figure, is good
practice in any situation is it not? =)
GreenScreen is FREE. I'm providing it to anybody to use as they wish (according
to the license terms in the readme file).
