KillKeys: Disables specified keys

KillKeys disables specified keys, preventing programs from picking them up.
The default behavior is to disable both windows keys and the menu key when in fullscreen windows to prevent accidentally pressing them when playing games.
Program made by Stefan Sundin. If you feel this program is useful, please consider donating money. Send me an email and tell me what you think, or if you want to translate the program.
Released 1.0. Bumping the version to 1.0 since I think KillKeys now accomplishes what I set out for it to do. KillKeys is now available in Spanish thanks to Fabrizio Ferri. I have also opened a forum which I hope you'll use to discuss KillKeys and my other tools, let me know what's good and what's bad. I have also gotten some reports that my tools show up on some antivirus scanners, these are all false positives! I will try to report it to the antivirus vendors.

Tech Toolkit 2.0

Based off of the idea of Bryce Whitty's "Computer Repair Utility Kit" from The downfalls of Bryce's idea was that he had the complete package with all the tools offered for download on his site, which of course sucked up bandwidth, and some authors of the applications, while freeware, wanted the only download of their software to be at their own sites.

To bypass these problems Tech Tools uses Ketarin, which is an application downloader that checks to see if an application has been updated and downloads it if so.

So I've compiled a list of apps that that were part of the original tool, and either
subtracted or added them due to their portability. i.e. if the program had an installer i didnt include it, I used mostly standlone executables for this first package.

You use Ketarin to first download all your tools and it will automatically extract them to their categorized folders.Once Downloaded you can then open Pstart.exe ,its menu is already configured to show the downloaded tools. You would then use Ketarin weekly to auto-update all these tech tools so you would always have a fresh copy of the program on your USB.

NTFS Undelete: Recover deleted files

NTFS Undelete is free and open source software that allows you to recover deleted files. It recovers files directly from hard drive, and it will work even if you empty Recycle Bin.

Before downloading NTFS Undelete, please consider the following:

When you delete a file, its content physically remains intact on the media, but the occupied space becomes marked as free. Next file saved to the disk may overwrite the contents of the deleted file.

It is very important to make sure that no application writes to the drive or partition where deleted file is located since every new file (even a small one) may overwrite the deleted file.

Tips. What you should do, when you realized that the file you need is deleted:

  1. Do not open or close files and applications.
    Many applications create temporary files which may overwrite and corrupt your deleted files.
  2. Depending on your system configuration, you should perform one of the following actions:

    1. If deleted files were located on the system disk (usually disk "C:"), or if you have only one logical disk in the system, you should not install any software into the system since it will most likely overwrite your deleted file.

      We provide an ISO image with NTFS Undelete. You will have to use another computer to burn that image to a CD or DVD. Then just run NTFS Undelete directly from CD.

    2. If your deleted files are not located on the system disk, then you can use NTFS Undelete Windows Installer to install the software as usual.

  3. Run NTFS Undelete application and locate deleted file you'd like to restore.
  4. Always recover files to another disk or partition. Do not recover files to the same partition they were located, otherwise files you are recovering may get corrupted and unrecoverable.
  5. That's it, now you have your files back!

Eraser: Permanent Delete Hard Disk Data

Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns. Works with Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Server 2008.

Why Use Eraser?

Most people have some data that they would rather not share with others - passwords, personal information, classified documents from work, financial records, self-written poems, the list can be continued forever.

Perhaps you have saved some of this information on your computer where it is conveniently at your reach, but when the time comes to remove the data from your hard disk, things get a bit more complicated and maintaining your privacy is not as simple as it may have seemed at first.

Your first thought may be that when you 'delete' the file, the data is gone. Not quite, when you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes the reference of the file from the file system table. The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might be possible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.

Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.

There are several problems in secure file removal, mostly caused by the use of write cache, construction of the hard disk and the use of data encoding. These problems have been taken into consideration when Eraser was designed, and because of this intuitive design and a simple user interface, you can safely and easily erase private data from your hard drive.

Eraser Features

  • It works with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.
    • Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 can still be used with version 5.7!
  • It works with any drive that works with Windows
  • Secure drive erasure methods are supported out of the box
  • Erases files, folders and their previous deleted counterparts
  • Works with an extremely customisable Scheduler
