  • It is amazing how many of these freeware programs I already use. A couple of additional comments:

    1. File Manager preference is a completely subjective opinion (notice how many of them are out there). My suggestion of one to add to the machine is Explorer² from

    2. ATNotes is an excellent program that I still use, however it has been discontinued. The last version is 9.5, and is still available at as of this post.

    3. In addition to Atomic Clock Sync, may I suggest PTBSync from It is more of a Swiss Army knife utility that has Atomic Clock Synchronization, Organizer, Trayclock, Desktop Calendar and Desktop Notes.

    Thanx for the excellent blog.
