I haven't bought a single Sony product since the Sony Rootkit fiasco I vowed not to buy anything Sony again. Having just bought a new digital camera recently, I did like the spec of some of the Cyber-Shot cameras but ruled them out because they were Sony.

here bob ;D

http://www.glarysoft.com/au.html it's FREE 8)
One of the best things about the Revo Uninstaller-it removes the junk leftover by programs after uninstallation. It does a quick scan of your computer before and after you install the program to make sure the uninstaller took care of everything. Aside from that it also had several other features for managing your computer.
The other day I found another free app (for Windows 98 and up) that is similar in nature: Absolute Uninstaller. It’s goal is to remove software from your computer much like the classic Windows Add/Remove programs, but it goes a step further. It will check to make sure that the uninstaller takes care of everything that was in the uninstall log, and Absolute Uninstaller will delete the things that are left behind.
Here are some of the things that Absolute Uninstaller can do:
Detects and removes leftover files from the uninstaller
Remove programs in bulk by checking the box next to multiple items. Unfortunately it will still require input from you so you can’t walk away.
One-click removal of any entry
Points out which applications were recently installed
Show installed applications by name or by install date
And yes, this is completely free. In fact this is the first version of Absolute Uninstaller that doesn’t cost a dime. Previously you had to pay $29.95 to get this program, but now you only have to pay if you want to get their entire suite of utilities.

Typical Aussie Government Spend 84 Million on a waste of money and supply a Crap Broadband Service. Their next plan is to breed  Ultra Speedy Carrier Pigeons.

Microsoft shuts down popular third-party Windows update app

AutoPatcher is no more after Microsoft sends cease-and-desist

August 29, 2007 (Computerworld) -- Microsoft forced a popular alternative to Windows Update off the Internet today, sending the maker of AutoPatcher cease-and-desist e-mail. The free utility has been removed from its download site.

Microsoft did not give a reason for the move, which came more than four years after AutoPatcher debuted.
Microsoft did not respond to a request for comment.
