Sorry Folks - out of the Hundred Plus programs I got last week only these 20 were worth posting.

Remember - NEW mean New programs I've found - Not necessarily Newly Written Programs. Don't let "old" software fool you. Some of my most trusted apps are years old, but do the trick every time.

KILLER.ZIP 9KB 06-14-98 File&FolderKiller for Win95 and Win3x (not tested on Windows NT) was written to delete temporary files which will not be deleted by the apps that have created them. Some people have also written expensive programs to search and delete temporary files. All this is not necessary when you create a folder that is used for all temporary files (the temp folder). The next step is to tell your system where this folder can be found. The last step is to delete the folder contents any time you start your system. And exactly here appears the problem because many installation programs also create temp files to use after you have restarted your system. File&FolderKiller gives you the option to cancel the delete process during your restart (i.e. when you know that you have installed a new application). It is also possible to setup different configurations in kill-files

Freeware 46KB 03-07-97 Netdate v. 2.00. I wrote netdate to synchronise my desktop PC's clock with my Unix server. The program requires that you give it a host which is providing the time service on Port 37 (most if not all unix boxes although some may block this service). Getting time from a unix box you know is using NTP will give you the most accurate time on your desktop PC. This program seems to be accurate to within about +/- 1 sec.
