Computer Tools - Wellness for your Pc

By: Manuel MÃ?llers

In principle, tools are simple computer programs, such as every other program. However the term "tool" or "utility" is usually assigned to particularly useful programs.

Some examples to illustrate what tools usually do:

Some tools...

- ...find errors in files and the file system and repair them
- ...reconstruct deleted files
- ...allow you to access hidden functions in the operating system
- ...change the appearance of the operating system
- ...encrypt sensitive files or do delete them in such a way that they can not be recovered anymore
- ...destroy the traces which one leaves while surfing the Internet
- ...determine long forgotten Internet passwords
- ...change the Windows system registration without running the risk to make the computer useless
- ...hide different program windows on the push of a button
- ...increase your security on the Internet
- And still much more....

Many of these programs are available free of charge on the Internet. Since both the terms "tool" and "utility" are not protected, everyone that writes a program might call it tool or utility. Thus, there are some black sheep among the free programs. They often contain Malware (like viruses, Worms or Trojans) or Spyware. In addition, most of these free programs are so-called Shareware, which one can test only during a short period. After that period, one is almost forced to purchase the product if one wishes to continue using it. But there are also professional tools and utilities, like those that one can acquire for example on . There is a large range of useful aids that do, what they promise; and his for little money.
