Sendago
Sendago is a desktop cum web utility to share files that are too large for sending as email attachments. Sendago is not an online file storage service but a good alternate to email attachments. You can either use Sendago as a standalone application or integrate it with Outlook - emails are sent via Outlook but the files are uploaded to Sendago servers. Among the other features of Sendago are: a 10 GB of online storage for free - this means files of virtually unlimited size can be shared; the desktop uploader cum file manager keeps of track of all files that you have sent via Sendago - if you wish to send the same file to a different set of people there would be no need to it upload again, Sendago would just use the existing file; thumbnails of pictures makes it easy to make selections; Sendago can track the number of times a file has been downloaded by the recipients - this info can be seen on the desktop itself, no need to open Sendago website. How does it work? Sendago V1.1 can be downloaded at http://www.sendago.com/downloadsendago.aspx. An FAQ of Sendago can be found at http://www.sendago.com/faq.aspx
Madotate
Madotate can prove to be a useful alternative to minimizing Windows. It is a simple tool that adds 3D effect to your inactive windows. Once you run Madotate it adds another function button to all the windows, right next to the minimize button. Pressing this button causes the window to acquire a 3D effect and the window moves aside. You can change the position of the window using your left mouse button and as you move, it maintains the perspective with relation to the original position. By using the right mouse button you can change the perspective or even change the axis. Madotate offers quite a few settings to customize the appearance as well as behavior of the 3D windows, like setting the transparency, zooming in/out the windows, adding sound to the transitions etc. Madotate can be downloaded at http://davc73.free.fr/madotate/Madotate_2.02.02.zip (Source : Dang Quoc Khanh)
LocalCooling
With LocalCooling you can help the fight against global warming from your desktop. LocalCooling is an advanced power management tool that helps conserve resources by powering down your PC when it is not in use. LocalCooling is a free tool that automatically optimizes your PC's power consumption by using a more effective power save mode than the Microsoft standard. LocalCooling offers several advantages over the standard Windows power manager, provides an overview of the estimated PC power usage, and a statistical report that shows how much power has been conserved over time. The program can automatically turn off your monitor, shut down or hibernate your PC after X minutes of inactivity, and also offers an option to suspend the shutdown if a certain program is running or if the shutdown would occur before a specific time of day.  LocalColling requires Windows XP to run,  can be downloaded at  http://download.uniblue.com/localcooling/localcooling-1.04.exe
Volumouse

It can provide a quick and easy way to control the sound volume on your system - simply by rolling the wheel of your wheel mouse. It allows you to define a set of rules for determining when the wheel will be used for changing the sound volume. For example: You can configure Volumouse to use your mouse wheel for volume control when the Alt key is hold down, when the left mouse button is down, when the mouse cursor is over the taskbar, and so on. System Requirements: 32-bit Windows operating system: Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista, Wheel mouse and Sound card. There are 2 methods to install Volumouse on your system: Manual Installation (For advanced users) and Automatic Installation .
