    Question Useful Tools

    Nope, not referring to the members of this site.

    Do you have any Windows tools/programs that you couldn't live without, whether rare discoveries or not?

    Only recently I came across Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Manager which has made it so much easier connecting into various servers.

    What have you found?

    I find the Windows Snipping Tool surprisingly useful (when PrtScn and Alt+PrtScn can't hack it). No direct upload facility though, unsurprisingly.

    NetMeter is another fave, for keeping an eye on bandwidth usage.

    CMC2 - I used the original CMC on XP and recently found out that it had been upgraded for Win7

    cmc_v2.8_setup.exe - cmc2 - CMC v2.8 - cmc - remote computer management tool - Google Project Hosting

    Great remote tool. Remote Registry, VNC, lots of other stuff in it.
    Great for killing processes remotely (especially when kids are playing games!!)

    The Dude. We use it just with PING to keep an eye on everything important. We've overlaid a map of the school so it's easy to stop where an issue is.
