Bob, did you try Free Fixer and Drive The Life. And if so was it in a VM.  Seems like these are programs that could bork your computer very easy if your not careful.
Unless I specifically note that I haven't used the program, I always test a program before I post it here or anywhere else.
Quite a few of the programs I test and post about also get passed along to those that attend my Avast sponsored presentations.

Drive The Life updates your drivers and only notifies you if it finds a newer signed driver. (no betas.)
Free Fixer requires some knowledge and research. It lets you know what's running and then lets you decide (through research) if there is anything that
needs to be removed. The removal decision is up to you and, in the free version is not reversible.

Copy An Image Or Contents Of A Text File Without Opening It
The app is a really small download and installs in half a minute.
Once installed, right-click a JPG, PCX, PNG, BMP, TGA, GIF and TIF image file,
or a simple text file with the TXT or SRT (or similar) extension.

I meant, if it's only in English, I can't install on computers, which owners don't understand English.

 XP Update Extender 
 Freeware
    Current Version: 1.0.0.0
    Supports Windows XP
    German and English user interface (depending on the system language)
    receive updates for Windows XP until 2019
    Pretends your OS to be a version of XP Embedded
    Those updates may not have been properly tested for your version of Windows XP
    and might harm your system. Use at your own risk!
(I have not tested this software. No longer have an XP system.)
Use Caution when installing this program. Use a custom install and avoid installing PC-Mechanic

Screencast-O-Matic new Beta release.
My favorite Video recording and editing program.

If you're using the pro version, it now makes the new screen capture available:
