Robo Form (Siber Systems) Create strong passwords, save them, and automatically fill them in using Firefox or IE.If you’re frustrated by passwords, this is your answer.For sensitive sites, I change passwords every month or two.I don’t have to memorize anything, and in fact I don’t even know most of my passwords.It provides system information, a hierarchical view of all running processes (including services), and an overwhelming number of technical details about how each process uses CPU and memory.
Snag It (Tech Smith) As a technology writer, I use this screen capture program nearly every day.
Next --When Microsoft bought Sysinternals and its library of amazing Windows utilities in 2006, some feared that development would stop cold. Mark Russinovich is now a Microsoft Fellow, the Sysinternals website is still alive and well, and its flagship program, Process Explorer, is now up to version 11.11.
(Cue the Spinal Tap jokes.) You can think of Process Explorer as Task Manager on steroid.
You can kill, suspend, or restart a process any time. Process Explorer is a must for anyone who is trying to pin down performance problems on any Windows version or is just curious about what’s going on under the hood. The proper strategy, of course, is to assign each website and logon a unique, strong, randomly generated password that’s impossible to guess, and then to change it regularly.
Creating and keeping track of all those passwords is impossible without some help. This utility hooks into IE and/or Firefox (sorry, no support for Opera or Safari) and allows you to generate strong passwords, save credentials in individual files called “passcards” that can be encrypted, and then recall those credentials with a single mouse click (sorry, keyloggers) when you revisit that site again and have to logon.
