For quality screen captures try Mr. Captor 2.3. This program is fantastic and even snatches scrollable screens. I used it to capture the bahtbus.com maps in vertical bands and then stitched the resulting BMP images together using Panavue Image Assembler (another great program). I?m sure there are better ways to do this kind of thing, but this method worked and with excellent results. Free trial versions can be downloaded for both.

Soongmak, Works great! Wondered what that key was for. Beats the hell out of taking a picture of my display with a digital camera.

Thanks bibblies and short-time for the suggestions, I'll check them out.

10. Kazaa-lite.
spyware-free version of this well-known p2p-software. It will find all music and software I might want, including keygenerators.    


I was wondering what software members use for downloading music, videos, images, etc.

I used Gnutella before but had a few problems with that.

I switched to Grokster and it caused me a wealth of grief. All kinds of pop-ups being generated that seem to be embedded in IE. I keep getting them from somewhere called clickspring which comes from something that was dropped into my WINSERV file and I cannot get rid of - short of reinstalling OS, etc. I am still using '98.

I got similar garbage from KaZaa too.

Anyone else?

I've been using BearShare and it's really been great.

While the selection isn't as good, the throughput has been pretty awesome and I can still surf the news with my dialup connection.

I use WinMX for filesharing stuff. Tried a few others but they annoyed me after about 10 seconds so I uninstalled them. WinMX seems to find everything I want.

Switch to Kazaa lite. This version is spyware/adware free and faster as well. I don't have anyproblems with that, except that Kazaa is low on software and keygens. For this I use Emule, for which you need a flatrate unfortunatly, because usually takes much time to download files.  

And I would advice to run spybot to get rid of your spyware/adware from Kazaa et al.

I never use p2p software to download videos - for me simply to much of a hassle for too little quality. It is not so great to find out after you downloaded a movie that it is dubbed in french  :banghead: :help: :down: :censored: :cussing:

for images I rather hunt the binary newsgroups with my gravity  newsreader - more choice, more quality, better organised.

For software and especially music Kazaa lite is great though.

Cheers,

I have been using XoLoX for p2p with very good results.  All downloads have been perfect (other programs have not spliced between download sites well).  If you opt out of the extras when you install it should be clean but would run a check with ad-aware or spybot (which I don't use as a little too dangerous in my fat hands). :o
