For system admins out there:

I've recently setup my own website. I'm a developer for a college and produce my own custom software the the IT Department. You can get my software FREE at http://www.wisesoft.co.uk.

At the moment I have two applications on my site:

Password Control

A simple Active Directory enabled tool that allows helpdesk staff to change users passwords.
Sys Req: XP, 2000, 2003 Server
.NET Framework
Active Directory required




ScriptBuilder

Released today!! This product allows you to create logon scripts that map network drives and install shared printers.

sys req: XP, 2000, 2003 Server
SQL Server (or the free MSDE from Microsoft)
.NET Framework





I would be happy to recieve feedback on these products. I plan to add additional software to my website at a later date.

Thanks, the sections expand. I got work to pay for some nice icons for my apps. The program was written in .NET and I got the treeview control from Crownwood sowfware.
We find ScriptBuilder really useful, so I thought I'd share it with other admins. A college is quite a unique environment though so I'd be interested if other people find my apps useful for their business.
I have some other apps that I've developed and will post them on my site at a later date...

Free? I bought that software! Anyway, I'm now using Directory Opus and I don't know how I've managed without it. The amount of things it can do is amazing and I'm bewildered by the customization. Not free, but well worth the cash.

Is Powerdesk about the best free dual-pane explorer replacement available for Windows XP? I used it for a bit but wasn't too struck on it and so I've reverted back to regular Windows explorer.

Update: I've just started using xplorer Lite which seems pretty good so far.

The shutdown command can be really useful.

-s = shutdown
-f = force program close
-m \\computername = remote shutdown
-t (Time in seconds) = Schedule your computer to shutdown later if it's busy with something.

e.g. shutdown -s -f -t 3600
(Will shutdown your PC & force programs to close in 1 hour.)

I'm running WinXP Pro and am looking for an app (or apps) that can clean up my registry and do the same for my hard drive as i have a lot of left overs from uninstalled programs (and windows hotfixes!) What can you reccomend?

Crap Cleaner does a good job of cleaning up the registry and also temporary files.
