Get Your Free Upgrade To Autoruns 13.2

Posted: 27 Mar 2015 02:37 AM PDT

Autoruns has always been one of the most useful programs to keep in your troubleshooting toolkit, so it's worth knowing that an update to this popular utility was released last week. Version 13.2 includes various fixes and additions since version 13 was introduced a couple of months ago.

As well as giving you total visibility over which programs and services get automatically run when your PC starts up, you can also virus-check any suspicious file against VirusTotal with just a single right-click. So not only can you keep track of which programs your PC is running behind the scenes, you can also check them for malware too.

Autoruns 13.2 is now available and the download is around 0.5 MB. It runs on all recent versions of Windows and is portable - just unzip the download and run the single .EXE file. There's also a command-line version in the zip download, for advanced users. The program is free and is malware-free according to both VirusTotal and Web of Trust.

Create Your Own Captions For Any Youtube Video

Posted: 26 Mar 2015 01:28 AM PDT

You've probably seen those videos which consist of foreign-language clips that have been complemented (or frequently ruined) by someone's attempt to add hilarious captions to them. Many of them seem to feature a particular scene from a film called Downfall. If you've ever thought that you could do better, here's a great web-based system which makes it easy to add captions to any video that's already on Youtube. Just type in the video's URL, and then enter your captions in the boxes that appear.

You can preview and refine your efforts until you're happy with them, and then publish them on the site for friends and family to (hopefully) laugh at.

Pixar Renderman. Was $1300. Now Free.

Posted: 25 Mar 2015 01:55 AM PDT

Since the company was formed more than 25 years ago, Pixar has used an in-house product called Renderman to help add digital effects to its films. Those blockbuster include Toy Story, A Bug's Life, and many more.

Pixar also sold (and continues to sell) Renderman to anyone who wants to use it, and recently cut the price from $1300 to $495. A good reduction, but still not quite right for Gizmo's Freeware.

However, as of now, the news gets even better. For non-commercial use, Renderman is totally free. Here's how to get it.

How to Check the Size and Reclaim Disk Space from WinSxS in Windows 8.1

Posted: 24 Mar 2015 01:07 AM PDT

Windows 7 and 8.x use a folder in the Windows directory called "WinSxS" to store certain system components and a variety of temporary and backup files. At times this folder can grow quite large and a previous tip showed how to free up disk space by reducing the folder's size in Windows 7. Here are some additional methods that are useful in Windows 8.1.
