This month's featured freeware: System Safe Gold

System Safe Gold Goes Platinum
April 26, 2002   |    The Review     |    Comments     |    The Verdict     |   Didn't Like     |    Liked

We reviewed System Safe Gold a few years back and found that it deserved it's place on these featured freeware pages. Every once and a while a truly worthy product comes along that, dare I say it?...Deserves to be a pay for play but we get it for free. Shhhhhhhhhhhh! Don't let this get out, if the authors of this stuff knew about it, well, it wouldn't be the end of the free world, but the world would definitely suffer.

When we tested System Safe Gold, under the advise of reader Brian (Brian also has a featured freeware page, click here to see what's new from Brian's Corner of the Web) we had been testing backup and storage freeware with, well...lets just say varied results. Okay, okay, it all stunk! Then along comes Brian ranting and raving about System Safe Gold like it was the new Messiah. Brian is highly excitable. Of course, Brian, being a loyal member of the British Common Wealth, takes exception to me calling him excitable...stiff upper lip and all that. Exageration is a hall mark for a writer isn't it? But, I digress, I on the other hand had just spent an interesting week downloading, installing, praying, and uninstalling a host of freeware which, to say the least, left me saying words that my Pastor wouldn't appreciate. Yeah, better face up to it, most freeware is worth every penny you pay for it. But not the products on this page. We extensively test this stuff ourselves and most of it has stood the test of time and heavy usage.

Jim Sivage
The author of this software informs me that System Safe Gold will not help you combat the poor performance of Windows Xpect Pain OS. You see with Win XP backing up is simple enough, but if you have the home version (The Pro version goes without a hitch), restore might cause you to scream great obscenities toward the Redmond campus. See, Bo's With Windows XP, Home version, Backing Up is Hard to Do. However, for a little pocket change you can upgrade System Safe Gold to Stealth which makes backups of your XP system child's play.

For more information about System Safe Stealth, visit:
Stealth (Stealth is not Freeware) Keep in mind that many new programmers get their start in the software industry and hone their skills by producing small, handy, and free programs. This helps them develop the skills needed to produce programming in today's hectic software industries. Supporting freeware authors when they are ready to produce programs for marketing purposes also support the freeware you enjoy on this page. If you find K-Soft or System Safe Gold to your liking, why not support Jim and buy his more feature rich Stealth product.

You can also sign up for his newsletter and become a member of the Stealth community...that's free too. See also K-Soft another fine backup utility from the makers of System Safe Gold...it is also free!

K-Soft 2.0.1 is an easy to use system backup and utility which lets you backup your main system configuration files quickly.

System Safe Gold Review:

Though I program my own backup software and have so for years I found SSGold a welcome relief from those bloatware programs such as Norton Rescue, McAfee's Safe and Sound (McAfee Safe-N-Sound is anything but, of course that is another story). The program, though simplistic in design is relatively thorough, fast, and a pleasure to operate. SSGold also comes with a DOS Registry Recovery for those who no nothing of the DOS RegEdit shipped with Windows 98 - Me.. In the event that your system is acting up and prohibits you from booting into Windows, The Registry Core File is stored in C:\Windows\ folder in a file called DPM.exe.

The tool tips were fairly precise and consistent with established pre-governed rules of 32 bit program protocols. Geek Speak for words of wisdom in the about file [Click About Button].

On my old Win 98 SE machine the total files backed up were 1177 which included some of the most often neglected CPL and OCX files. A change in the size of a file or date of access did not trigger a skip feature in the software for files of the same attributes as the last time of the backup. It would be nice if the SSGold interface realized that file attribute which was the same, did not need to be backed up. This would cut down on the amount of time required to backup the system.

The interface is simple and easy to understand. The documentation is somewhat Spartan, but it is adequate and better than allot of freeware products which offer little to none.

The install guard log keeps you abreast of your last system scan and backup.

The Verdict? This is a definite must have.
Comments: If you have Win XP be sure to take a look at Stealth for your backup needs...but don't wait. Trust me, it is better to have a program and not use it then to need it and not have it. System Safe Gold is well worth the download. K-Soft is a small file but if you use the SSGold there really isn't a need to download the K-Soft freeware.

What we liked: Intuitive user interface, simple to use, easy to learn. Thoroughness of the files system saved procedure was more than expected. A DOS enabled environment for the system registry to aid in booting in the event of disaster. Easy to understand operation modes with some, options available.

What we didn't like: The documentation could be a little better, though it is better than some. Files are backed up in a sort of dumb mode. The interface doesn't seem to care if a file hasn't been changed in a long time. It would be better if attribs were better used.

Connection Keeper

Connection Keeper will simulate Internet activity at random intervals in order to prevent your Internet Service Provider (ISP) from dropping your connection due to inactivity.  Connection Keeper can also automatically close those annoying popup windows.

  • Works with all versions of Windows® 95, 98, NT, 2000, ME, and XP.
  • Can be set to automatically dial-up if the connection is lost.
  • Can automatically close popup windows that ask the user if they want to stay online.
  • Can be minimized to the system tray so that it does not take up space on your taskbar.
  • Can run when you are not even connected to the Internet.  It will wait patiently until you connect before it does anything.
  • Uses very little of your computer's resources.
  • The interval at which Connection Keeper queries the ISP is adjustable, or it can be set to a random interval.
  • You can choose whether or not Connection Keeper requests a real or bogus URL.  You have full control over the real URL's that are queried.
  • The query that is sent to the ISP takes up almost no bandwidth.  You can run Connection Keeper in the background regardless of whether or not you are using the Internet without fear that your connection will be slowed down.
  • If you are a webmaster, Connection Keeper can be used to monitor your web site.  It will let you know if a page is not downloading properly.
  • Command line parameters can be used to close a popup window.
  • Command line parameters can be used to check for the existence of a file.  A message window will only appear if there is a problem.  This is useful for checking the status of your network when your computer boots up, for example.
  • Command line parameters can be used to download a web page and report any errors that occur.  This is useful for checking the status of your web site when your computer boots up, for example.

Connection Keeper keeps your Internet connection live, so that your ISP won't automatically disconnect you after a certain amount of time. If you do get disconnected, the program automatically redials and logs you back in. (Free/Windows)

Bandwidth Meter tells you the true speed of your Internet connection, and can also report on your average connection and download speeds over time. (Free/Windows)

SpyBlocker Many Web sites have ads that are distracting and a drain on bandwidth. Some sites send cookies and other files to your computer. Still others acquire information about you, your machine, and your browsing habits by using single-pixel Web bugs and other methods. SpyBlocker monitors this type of Web activity and allows users to control or block the ads and tracking systems. But SpyBlocker goes one step further. SpyBlocker strips ads out of ad-supported software, disabling the ad module and tracking capabilities without disabling the functionality of the program.

This update features minor enhancements and bug fixes.

AmiWeb Secure Browser for Kids! v2.0 [3.0M] W9x/NT/2k FREE


{Browser for babes} The Internet has a lot to offer kids, though there's a lot of stuff out there that children shouldn't see. Heck, there's a lot out there that adults shouldn't see, either. Bottom line? You need a browser for your youngsters (if you have any). Something that is limited only to "kid friendly" sites. As long as your munchkins stick to this colorful client, you shouldn't have to worry. They've got a team of experts who study these sites to make sure they're educational and (above all) appropriate for young surfers. Of course, taking them outside once in awhile isn't a bad idea, either. "The AmiWeb character guides your kids around the browser with voice, sounds and music!"

Dial-Up Networking 1.4 Upgrade Is Available, & IE Speakster

"This security upgrade for DUN in Windows 98 Second Edition adds the ability to encrypt dial-up and Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) traffic by using 128-bit keys. The DUN 1.4 upgrade for Windows 98 supports 128-bit encryption for both dial-up and PPTP connections and resolves situations in which PPTP connections would no longer transmit data. It includes all of the features from the earlier Windows 98 Security upgrade which strengthened password management and data encryption in PPTP connections. The DUN 1.4 upgrade provides additional features for the DUN components that were first introduced in Windows 95. DUN 1.4 features include PPTP client support, 128-bit encryption, support for internal ISDN adapters, multilink support, and connection-time scripting to automate non-standard login connections. The DUN 1.4 upgrade can be applied to any version of Windows 95."

Tweak UI 1.33 Has finally Arrived!

Microsoft has released a new version of TweakUI that works with both Windows 2000 and Windows Me (as well as NT 4, Win 95 and 98).  You can download it here.   The directions for installation given at that site are wrong!   Download the file as they tell you to but what's downloaded is a self-extracting zip (made using WinZip!).  Run the exe, let it extract to the default Windows\Temp directory, shift to that directory, right click the tweakui.inf and pick install.

For those who don't know it, TweakUI is a wonderful set of tools for customizing various aspects of Windows - it even includes ways to customize the special Open dialog that Windows 2000 and Windows Me have.

These are the list of files that will be extracted:
Tweak UI is also available on my Freeware from A-Z site, in case you miss it here before it is gone.

Tired of using productions suits from the evil empire?
August 4, 2002

If you have been vexed and fed up with the new Bill Gatsian mantra of, "License our software today, tomorrow and next week. We are down on piracy and you can now be sure your legal with our premiere Office XP product activation". Bill is trumpeting product activation like it is something we all really, really, want. I don't want it nor do I trust it. Office XP is a dog, in my view, and Microsoft should be pleased that anyone wants it at all, product activation aside.

If you agree, then you may be interested in Open Office (51.7 Megabytes). This is the open source suit from OpenOffice.org. which has now come of age. Alternatively, the 602 Pro suite is a great second choice for a free applications suite. The bonus, not only is it free, but it is fully compatible with the big boys, conversions for Word Perfect and Microsoft Office without the hassle or huge price tag. See the Features list below.

It is also available in many different languages and many of the popular OS's. Linux, Mac Office X, and of course Windows.

Want to know more? Check out the screen shots below and note it even looks allot like Office. Just click on the image to see the full blown version,

Open Office Features - System Requirements

First, let's clear up some major misunderstandings:

OpenOffice.org 1.0 prints, saves to PDF (*) , has an online help, and does have a working spellchecker with many available dictionaries. Having said that, let's detail some of the major features:

(*) Under UNIX based systems where spadmin, the printers administration program, uses ghostscript, ps2pdf, etc.

The Entire Suite





Open Office Update:

OpenOffice gets programming kit
The OpenOffice.org group on Friday announced a kit that lets programmers build new modules for open-source alternatives to the Microsoft Office suite. The free software development kit lets programmers add features such as new spreadsheet calculation formulas. It includes program samples and a 900-page guide that describes components such as macro programs that automate word processing tasks and the standard interfaces that add-on modules can use to plug in to OpenOffice.org.
A C|Net.com Report | Read Full Story

Bo Note: While you do have options to order a CD-ROM of the suite, it is not from OpenOffice but from vendors. Each has their own ordering and payment policy. So, Bo's advise, if you can not download, study the CD-ROM sites carefully before placing an order...there may be some surprises if you aren't careful.

If you are having problems downloading, be sure to check out some of our freeware downloads from Bohunky0's Freeware From A-Z. Just click on the Web link above. I have found that Smart Downloads (Comes with Netscape), is a good viable option and worked very well for me. Another thing, if you are having problems downloading is to try a time when the Net isn't as busey as it is at peak hours. I found that Sundays and late evenings worked best.

If you have tried to download Open Office, and just can't seem to get it, try the

602 Pro suite:




Create simple documents, class papers, complex forms, mailing labels or even chart diagrams (Network topology, flowcharts) with ease! All the tools are available to you, from simple formatting options (bold, italic, shadow) to advance database tools (database connection, inserting merge fields).




Use the unique MagicText function to add a professional outlook in just a few seconds to your postcards, invitations, posters and other documents. Only MagicText allows you to have complete control of the text outlook!

The latest version of 602Text is enhanced with Office XP compatibility and multiple language support per document. Spelling checker for multiple languages is included with FREE registration (English US/UK, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese).

Make your computer read the document with the text-to-speech function included with the PC SUITE Plus add-on.

Honorable mention must go to Easy Office- More Info @ Site 27.7 MB - It does present you with a nag screen but it isn't all that intrusive and it is a small download. Don't expect Easy Office to support your word, excel or poperpoint macros. Also, if you have very large documents, don't even attempt to load them in Easy Office....if you require the above, then definitely go to Open Office and download the suite.
