Run programs and web browsers and apps inside an isolated environment so they can't affect your system. Think of your PC as a piece of paper. Every program you run writes on the paper. When you run your browser, it writes on the paper about every site you visited. And any malware you come across will usually try to write itself into the paper. Traditional privacy and anti-malware software try to locate and erase any writings they think you wouldn't want on the paper. Most of the times they get it right. But first the makers of these solutions must teach the solution what to look for on the paper, and also how to erase it safely. On the other hand, the Sandboxie sandbox works like a transparency layer placed over the paper. Programs write on the transparency layer and to them it looks like the real paper. When you delete the sandbox, it's like removing the transparency layer, the unchanged, real paper is revealed.....(free).....

The Web was designed as an information space, with the goal that it should be useful not only for human-human communication, but also that machines would be able to participate and help. One of the major obstacles to this has been the fact that most information on the Web is designed for human consumption, and even if it was derived from a database with well defined meanings (in at least some terms) for its columns, that the structure of the data is not evident to a robot browsing the web. Leaving aside the artificial intelligence problem of training machines to behave like people, the Semantic Web approach instead develops languages for expressing information in a machine processable form. This document gives a road map - a sequence for the incremental introduction of technology to take us, step by step, from the Web of today to a Web in which machine reasoning will be ubiquitous and devastatingly powerful......(free).....

So to keep that from happening you need to set your IP to static so it never changes, then you no longer have to worry about your IP changing. (This should be done for computers behind a router) .....(free).....

If you are a Windows XP user who recently switched to Windows 7 you must have been getting annoyed by the blacking out of the screen every time the User Account Control kicks in. Microsoft calls this dimming the screen. What actually is happening is that the Windows dims the screen to bring the userís attention to the UAC prompt that has been opened. This happens for instance during software installations and there is no option to continue working with the operating system until action has been taken in the UAC prompt. Most advanced users might not need the extra eye-opener when a program tries to change data on the computer system, especially not during software installations that have been initiated by the user. Windows 7, and Windows Vista as well, provide an option to disable that UAC dims the desktop during prompts. This will still display a notification in the form of a normal window so that it is possible to interact with other elements on the desktop.

Simple internet tools is a dozen simple yet helpful tools for both the common user and admins.
Simple Static IP is a free program .to help users set their IP address to static with just a few clicks. At times there may be a reason you need to have your IP address set to static. A static IP is an IP address that never changes. By default peoples IP is dynamic which means it can change at any time. When port forwarding you forward to your local IP address, and if your IP changes your port forwarding will no longer work as it is not pointing to your new IP. This is the same for nearly all settings in a router that points to your computer, such as DMZ and logging. So to keep that from happening you need to set your IP to static so it never changes, then you no longer have to worry about your IP changing. (This should be done for computers behind a router) The process to set your IP can be intimidating if you have never done it before, that's why we provide this program to you, to make it simple
SpyMe Tools is very useful in detecting Registry and Disk changes. If any application installs spyware, adware, dlls, programs, files, or any other type of file, picture, or program, etc. or changes the Registry's content, you will be able to see exactly where the modification occurred so you can take measures. It seems like more and more programs are attempting to install spyware, advertisements, or other garbage without your knowledge, but with this software you will know everything that is added or removed. To detect Registry/Disk changes the program will create Dumps of the actual states of Registry/Disk. This means that at any time you can open the Dump file and view the contents of the Registry/Disk just as they were when you've scanned the Registry/Disk. The program can compare two different dump files so you'll see exactly what changed in the Registry/Disk between the two scans. You can also use the program to backup your Registry. The program can restore old states of Registry keys using the data in the Dump files. To prevent other persons from viewing your scanned files you may encrypt them so that a password will be required whenever someone tries to open them. SpyMe Tools also includes a Real time Disk/Registry monitor so you may spot the changes in real time.(Real time Disk monitor works only on NT platform, including Win2k and Win XP.)

Secret send to and context menu items in Windows 7
Many people believe that emptying the Recycle Bin will cause the deleted information to disappear forever. Unfortunately, that's not true. Many file-recovery programs and different forensic techniques exist that can recover information contained in deleted files. That means that those disk drives can still contain confidential or secret data which can be recovered. The U.S. Department of Defense has published their 5220.22M Standard for secure clearing of disk drives. That is to say, taking all of the unallocated space on a disk drive (not to include existing files) and render the contents of those unallocated areas safe from forensic recovery techniques and insure that no confidential information, in deleted files, can ever be recovered. SidesWipe is a simple and straightforward Windows utility that brings this capability to your desktop or server. SidesWipe also supports other more extensive secure drive cleaning methods such as the Guttman method, NSA, UK standard, Canadian RCMP suggested method, as well as a very quick and easy Single Sweep method. All methods are supported. You make the choice
