VoodooShield 2.75

VoodooShield



Protect your computer against viruses, threats and malicious programs by instantly blocking them with this intuitive application

VoodooShield offers your computer a reliable protective shield against viruses, malware and other threats. The software is an intuitive tool which allows you to block untrusted programs or files, as well as to create a whitelist, for all the software you trust. The software features two protection modes: always on and smart.
Creating whitelists for software

VoodooShield is a reliable application which takes a different approach to virus protection for your computer. The software cannot remove infected files, but it can block them from being opened and protect your computer from getting infected. The software features smart options that allow it to automatically create a whitelist snapshot, for all the programs and files that are always trusted.

Once the antivirus program has created a whitelist snapshot of your system, VoodooShield can block the functionality of your computer, so that it does not allow any other software to run. In other words, you may create a list of allowed programs and set your computer to only run the specified software. However, you may choose to allow additional programs through the protection wall.
User friendly computer lock

VoodooShield is designed to run in the background at all times, but it displays a small shield icon on the desktop, which you can easily relocate to the desired position. The shield indicates whether or not the VoodooShield is active or not: red when the protection is OFF and blue when it is ON.

Moreover, dragging and dropping any file onto the shield, causes the software to automatically scan the document for malware. If the software blocks the file, it is automatically uploaded for detailed analysis, onto the cloud based blacklist.
Whitelist based protection

VoodooShield is designed to learn the user’s preferences in regard with trusting the software. The learning process takes place as the software displays the red background and the OFF message. When you activate the protection, the software can automatically take a snapshot of your system, in order to determine which programs are trusted and block all others.

Take regular breaks from your computer work in order to ensure you will not suffer from Repetitive Strain Injuries, thanks to this handy tool

When working on a complex project, you might get so caught up in your work that you forget to take a break, stretch for a few minutes or simply drink a cup of water.

PC WorkBreak is one of the applications that remind you when it is time to take a break so as to increase your long-term productivity.
Minimalistic, yet intuitive GUI

The utility comes with a simplistic graphic user interface (GUI), which makes it easy for everyone to identify and understand its functions.

You need to start by creating a list with the breaks you want to take, as well as define some time intervals when no breaks are required, then set PC WorkBreak to run at Windows startup.
Set up frequent breaks, depending on your needs

When it comes to setting up a new break, you need to assign it a brief title that can also serve as a motivational phrase – this way you can make sure that you are not tempted to ignore the break reminder.

You can choose the break duration (in seconds) and its frequency or fixed time, along with a relevant graphic file (GIF, JPEG, BMP, WMF, PNG or ICO).
Play sounds during the scheduled breaks and choose ‘no break’ days

A nifty function is enjoying your preferred audio tracks in the background, while taking the scheduled breaks since this can help you relax to the fullest and recharge your batteries.

As previously mentioned, you can define some time intervals when no breaks are required, as well as select the so-called ‘No Break Days’. This can come in handy if you plan to set PC WorkBreak to run at startup and do not want it to remind you to take a break when watching a movie or playing a game on weekends.

All in all, PC WorkBreak can be of great use to workaholics who rarely remember to take a break. The app also keeps track of all the breaks you dismissed or interrupted to get back to work, so you can use the statistics as an incentive to relax more even if you are working on an important project.

ID Manager 1.0.0.1

ID Manager



Allows you to organize and secure the credentials of multiple email accounts by adding them to a list and setting an access password

Working with multiple email accounts can sometimes lead to forgetting certain information, such as authentication details or usernames.

While you can write them down on a piece of paper, you can also rely on dedicated software solutions, such as ID Manager, that can help you achieve the same results faster and without wasting paper.
Simple user interface

This application comes with a minimalistic design that allows you to familiarize yourself quickly with it and use it to its full extent with almost no difficulty.

Although there is no traditional configuration menu, it is possible to adjust certain parameters, such as modifying the password needed to access the application or changing default fonts.

Unfortunately, the help menu does not provide you with any actual user guide, therefore novices might have to use it by trial and error.
Basic email account organizer

This program is designed around a simple concept: organizing email account information, such as address, password or extra details and protect them with a password.

You can add a new entry to the list by typing the desired content in the dedicated fields and hitting the plus-shaped button on the right. Alternatively, after filling in the information, you can choose between the “Add New ID” or “Add New ID Without Time” functions under the file menu.
Additional display method

Although you can view your accounts along with any other detail in the dedicated list, it is also possible to select a specific item and click the View button. This displays the item with its corresponding details in a quite more neatly manner.

Removing a certain entry from the list can be achieved by either right-clicking it and selecting the corresponding option, or by relying on the Remove Selected ID function from the File menu.

To sum it up, ID Manager is a lightweight utility that allows you to save your email account details in a list and secure it by specifying a password.

AllSync 3.5.100

DATARECOVERY



Powerful data synchronization and backup software solution that features various profile customization and data filtering options

AllSync is a full-featured backup and synchronization utility that can be used on local workstations, as well as small networks. With customizable file copy options, it enables users to securely backup their important files and folders.
Simple and incremental backups, folder sync and comparison

AllSync relies on so-called 'copy profiles', which are, actually, backup tasks that can be configured and launched periodically to ensure data stays in sync. Users can edit the copy mode, direction and rules to apply, as well as define how ocurring conflicts will be managed by a profile.

Several copy modes are available. You can instruct AllSync to create 1:1 copies of the source folders or files, perform incremental backups (only changed and new items are migrated), only copy specific files and directories, synchronize locations, or compare folders.
Apply copy rules and filter data, compress and protect backup archives

There are other rules that can be applied. For instance, you can configure AllSync to move the source file or apply certain filters to select the content to migrate. The application also comes with rules for file deletion and overwriting actions, also providing a plethora of options for managing file conflicts, which should cover all the possible situations.

To save storage space, AllSync can compress copied files or split the backup folder into several archives. For security reasons, it can also encrypt the backup archive and create a backup of items that are erased or overwritten, so as to avoid accidental data loss.

Backup or sync operations that AllSync undertakes are neatly displayed in a report.The action logs are presented in detail, which enables the user to trace errors and find what caused them.
Convenient backup and sync solution for all users

With integrated scheduling capabilities in the Professional and up editions, AllSync makes it possible for all users to keep their data in sync at all times and create secure backups for important folders.

For the user's convenience, shortcuts can be created on the desktop, in the startup folder or on the quick launch bar for any profile. This means that you can initiate a new backup or sync task with just a few clicks.
