Updated: 12:30 PM 02-Feb-08

Regularly Added & Updated for Reliability

Good Paid To Read & Survey programs that pays & are NOT a Autosurf, Multi-Level Marketing, Pyramid, Ponzi, Matrix or "Get Rich Quick" scheme. They are a new innovative, international and FREE English based service that allows advertisers to reach thousands of potential customers by displaying their ad on their, "Surf Ads" page.

Companies spend Billions of dollars a year trying to convince consumers that their products are the best and to buy their products and services. They achieve this by getting an understanding how people think and shop. Knowing this, companies are willing to pay you for your opinions in survey programs. Overall your opinion could help the companies to upgrade their products and services.
Note: Currency here is in USD unless specified

Survey TIPS
Honest answers to survey and profile questions are vital to the integrity of the research process.
The provider, and its clients, depend on factual information in order to make decisions about products, services and advertising — decisions that affect consumers like you.
Please take your time and provide thoughtful and honest answers to profile and survey questions.
Providing inaccurate or dishonest information or "speeding through surveys" may limit your eligibility to participate in future surveys.

"Refer-a-Friend" to maximize your revenue beside taking the surveys on your own.
By refering others to these programs with your registered codes will contribute more to your revenue.

Currently, only make payments via PayPal.

Can other people in my household join?
They must have a valid unique e-mail address and valid unique PayPal address/account to register with our program. As far as cheating goes, our software detects users who create fictitious accounts and use the same computer so if someone else in your household wants to join and will legitimately use their account; you shouldn't be flagged for abuse.

How you make money
You view websites in 30 second sessions via the "Surf Ads" page. Once the 30 seconds is up, you'll either get a green tick sign or a red 'X'. The green tick sign means you've earned $0.01 and as premium member $0.0125 for the visit and the 'X' means you have not earned money for the visit. You'll get red X's when you have more than one website from the "Surf Ads" page open. When this happens, you get no credit.

A valuable benefit to both the members and the advertisers is the repeat exposure that the advertiser gets. Whenever you click and view a website, you can visit that website again in 24 hours as long as the visit cap hasn't been reached. That's right! After 24 hours you can click and view the website again. This gives the advertiser optimal exposure by using "repeat advertising" and it further increases the members earning potential.

DAMN NFO Viewer 2.10.0032.RC3

DAMN NFO Viewer description
DAMN NFO Viewer - the BEST utility for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (NFO/DIZ/TXT)
DAMN NFO Viewer is an utility designed for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (e.g. nfo files), and it proved itself to be handy.

So, if you're fed up with starting some DOS-like file manager each time you need to view nfo file, or ain't too happy with the viewer you use, or (worst case) use Notepad - give this little tool a try.

Here are some key features of "DAMN NFO Viewer":

Available in multiple languages
· Chinese Simplified, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish. You can choose the languages during installation
and switch between them later via Settings dialog.

Hyperlinks / Email addresses autodetection
· The viewer automatically detects hyperlinks / email addresses and shows them as clickable shortcuts.

Customizable appearance
· You can set text/background colors, colors for hyperlinks and hovered hyperlinks, whether or not you want hyperlinks to be underlined, and choose between 3 built-in fonts, available in different sizes.

Word Wrap
· You can switch between word wrap, character wrap and no wrap.

Shell integration
· The Viewer can be set as the default application to open files with .nfo and .diz extensions. You get fancy file icons as a bonus.

Smart line breaks handling
· Unix style line breaks are supported (that is, you won't notice any difference). Moreover, the Viewer correctly displays files with doubled/tripled/etc. (e.g. because of improper multiple Unix<->Windows conversions) line breaks.

Unicode support
· Unicode version of the program is installed automatically if the operation system supports it. Unicode version provides better support for multilingual user interface.

· When this feature is on, text gets copied to clipboard automatically after you have finished selecting it (released shift key or left mouse button). After the selected text has been copied, the selected area will flash shortly and the text will get deselected (so for those who thought it's a bug: it is not).

Direct Scroll mode
· In this mode there's no caret so you can't select text with keyboard, but you can navigate through file contents more easily (like in your browser). Turning it off makes it more like viewing a file in a text editor. and more...
· ...including Most Recently Viewed nfos list (accessible via menu or Alt+R), Drag&Drop support, ... well, check for yourself.

Batch Rename Files

1) Batch Rename .EXE Publisher's Description

Run dynamic lists of files through an extensive array of filename filters to ensure that your files are labeled and organized exactly how you want them. Use filters to add information, remove spaces, change capitalization and more. Batch Rename .EXE provides you with comprehensive labeling solution in just three simple steps.

System Requirements
PC, Windows, 32MB+ RAM, 66+ Mh'z Processe
What's new
Command Line Support, Context Menu Support, MP3 Info

Mirror 1
Mirror 2
Mirror 3


2) How to Batch Rename Files in Windows XP

1)Create an empty New Folder.
2) Right Click on empty space & select Arrange Icons by Name
(This manoeuvre is to make sure the first rename file remains first in the list.)
( All unwanted files should not be in the same folder.)
3) Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, open the folder containing the files. Select all the files you wish to rename (use Shift or Ctrl to select multiple files).
4)Press F2 on the keyboard.
5)Type a new name for first file (i.e. the empty New Folder) in the list , then hit Enter. We'll call the first file picnic.JPG - the other files will automatically be given the same name followed by numbers in parentheses.
6)Delete the empty New Folder.
You'll notice that the first file has the exact name you entered, without a number. If you want the numbering to start from the first file, enter the file name followed by the number (1). You must enter it exactly like this - the file name, a space, and the number 1 in parentheses.

Note: If you make a mistake, you can undo the renaming by selecting undo from the edit menu, or by pressing Ctrl-Z (repeatedly).

This is a nice simple batch renaming system, but it is quite limited. You can't change the numbering system and you're stuck with the spaces and parentheses. Also, you can't change the case of the file extensions (so in the example above you're stuck with upper-case JPG).

This system will suffice for many people, but if you need more control over the renaming process you'll have to use a specialized utility or other software.

Important: If you plan on using these files on the internet, this renaming system is not a good idea as spaces in file names will cause problems.

3) BatchRename Pro v3.25 | 1.46MB
BatchRename is for you to batch rename files and folders freely with all kinds of rules you defined as many as you like, plus some picture conversion and editing features.

Main features:
Highlight rename features

Support renaming files using their Shell detail properties - like what you see on the columns of Windows explorer, including video properties, audio properties and more ...
Support for MP3 Tag ID3 v1 and v2, rename by music's Title, Album, Artist, Genre, BitRate, Frequency, SubTitle, Language, Comment, Copyright, Composer and etc,...
Renaming picture files by their Image properties: resolution, color bits, type format.
Renaming by the local date time format, or file's date time attribute.
Insert specific length of digits ascending or descending based on defined order.
Uppercase/lowercase the first letter of each word, and Uppercase/Lowercase/Remove any specific character in the filenames.
Format the time code for a batch of FX picture filenames.
Select destination output directory to store the renamed files.
Truncate filename to a specific length.
Build rename rules yourself, and combine them to make infinite kinds of rename rules.

Favorite rename rules

Zoom Player

Zoom Player is a computer program that plays video and sound files on Windows-based personal computers. It is a general player that can play, essentially, anything that is playable on a PC, depending on what "filters" (or "codecs") are installed with it. This dependency on third party filters is both the strength and the weakness of the player. It is only as good as the filters used, and the user may have to acquire and install filters from third parties for many media types. The need to install and understand the right filters can be difficult for non-technical users (although the latest versions of the program give the user considerable help with that process). On the other hand the player is highly customisable and if set up correctly can present among the best audio and video quality that is possible from a PC[citation needed]. It is therefore popular with Home theater PC enthusiasts.

Zoom player is proprietary software distributed under a proprietary license. A version with some advanced features removed is available for non-commercial use without monetary cost but full-featured versions require payment.

Zoom Player comes in 3 flavors:

• Zoom Player Standard, a flexible feature rich Media Player that for all its features and goodness remains bloat-free;
• Zoom Player Professional, which on top of being a great Media Player, incorporates the most powerful DVD Front-End you could imagine (and even a few features you didn't think of imagining);
• Zoom Player WMV Professional, adding Windows Media DRM playback support.

Microsoft Office 2007

Office 2007 requires Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1, or Windows Vista.

Microsoft Office 2007 (officially called 2007 Microsoft Office system) is the most recent version of Microsoft's productivity suite. Formerly known as Office "12" in the initial stages of its beta cycle, it was released to volume license customers on November 30, 2006[1] and made available to retail customers on January 30, 2007.

See also Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack

Microsoft Office Word 2007 helps people create and share professional-looking content by combining a comprehensive set of writing tools with the easy-to-use Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. Here are the top 10 ways Office Word 2007 can help you create professional-looking content faster.
Reason 1 Spend more time writing and less time formatting.

The Office Fluent user interface presents the right tools when you need them, making it easy to format your documents quickly. Now you can find the right features in Office Word 2007 to make your documents communicate more effectively. Using Quick Styles and Document Themes, you can quickly change the appearance of text, tables, and graphics throughout the entire document to match your preferred style or color scheme.

Reason 2 Communicate more effectively with SmartArt diagrams and new charting tools.

New SmartArt diagrams and a new charting engine help you create great-looking content with 3-D shapes, transparency, drop shadows, and other effects.

Reason 3 Quickly assemble documents using Building Blocks.

Building Blocks in Office Word 2007 can be used to assemble documents from frequently used or predefined content such as disclaimer text, pull quotes, sidebars, cover pages, and other types of content. This will help ensure you don't spend needless time recreating content or copying and pasting between documents; it also helps ensure consistency across all of the documents created within your organization.

Reason 4 Save as PDF or XPS directly from Office Word 2007.

Office Word 2007 offers you a choice for sharing documents with other people. You can convert your Word documents to Portable Document Format (PDF) or XML Paper Specification (XPS) format without the addition of third-party tools to help ensure broad communication with users on any platform.1

Reason 5 Publish and maintain blogs directly from Office Word 2007.

You can now publish blogs directly from Office Word 2007. You can configure Office Word 2007 to link directly to your blog site, and use the rich Word experience to create blogs with images, tables, and advanced text formatting features.

Reason 6 Master your document review processes using Office Word 2007 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

With built-in workflow services in Office SharePoint Server 2007, you can initiate and track document review and approval processes from within Office Word 2007 to help accelerate review cycles across your organization without forcing people to learn new tools.

Reason 7 Connect your documents to business information.

Create dynamic Smart Documents that update themselves by connecting to your back-end systems using new document controls and data bindings. By using the new XML integration capability, organizations can deploy intelligent templates to assist people in creating highly structured documents.

Reason 8 Remove tracked changes, comments, and hidden text from your documents.

Detect and remove unwanted comments, hidden text, or personally identifiable information using the Document Inspector to help ensure that sensitive information doesn't escape when your documents are published.

Reason 9 Use the tri-pane review panel to compare and combine documents.

Office Word 2007 makes it easy to find out what changes were made to a document. A new tri-pane review panel helps you see both versions of a document with deleted, inserted, and moved text clearly marked.

Reason 10 Reduce your file sizes and improve corrupt file recovery.

The new Ecma Office Open XML Formats offer a dramatic reduction in file size as well as improvement in recovery for damaged files. These new formats provide a tremendous savings to storage and bandwidth requirements, and reduce the burden on IT personnel.

1 You can save as a PDF or XPS file from a 2007 Microsoft Office system program only after you install an add-in. For more information, see Install and use a PDF or XPS add-in.

Requirements: Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0

Adjust the brightness on Video playback

Video playback is too dark on some files
Adjust the brightness. There are several ways to do that:

Graphics card

Most graphics card drivers allow you to adjust various picture properties such as Brightness, Contrast, Gamma and saturation.

You can access your graphics card control panel via:
Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced

Decoding filter

Most video decoding filters have an option to adjust the brightness. For example DivX, Xvid and ffdshow have such an option.

In Media Player Classic the properties of a filter can be accessed via:
MPC menu -> Play -> Filters -> [name of decoder]

In BSplayer the properties of a filter can be accessed via:
Right-click menu -> Options -> Filters -> [name of decoder]

In Windows Media Player it is not possible to access the properties of a filter.

In ZoomPlayer the properties of a filter can be accessed via:
Right-click menu -> Filter Properties -> [name of decoder]

Windows Media Player

1. In WMP, right-click on the title bar of the window or the Now Playing tab
2. In the context menu, select: View -> Enhancements -> Video Settings

Note: If you can't adjust the sliders in Video Settings, then you need to enable the option in WMP to use the video mixing rendering (VMR). To turn on VMR in WMP, do the following:

1. In WMP, right-click on the title bar of the window or the Now Playing tab
2. In the context menu, select: Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Performance tab.
4. Click on the Advanced button.
5. In the Video Acceleration area, enable Use video mixing renderer.
Q: Video playback is too bright or too dark on almost all files or the colors are all messed up

This is probably caused by incorrect settings of your graphics card drivers. Some versions of the nVidia drivers are notorious for messing up their own settings.

You can access the graphics card control panel via: Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced

Go to your graphics card control panel. Reset all settings to their default values. Important settings are Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Gamma. You can access the control panel via: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced.
Go to your graphics card control panel. Select the "Color Correction" page. Select "All" in the dropdown box called "Apply color changes to:". Then click on the button called "Restore Defaults".
Go to your graphics card control panel. Open the "video and television" options. (You need to be in the advanced view). Select "adjust video colour settings", then select "correction". Hit "do not use colour temperature correction".
If resetting the settings does not help, then find a newer or an older version of the graphics drivers. Uninstall your current drivers, reboot, and install the older ones.

Another solution (read: workaround) is too change the output renderer in Media Player Classic. By default it uses the Overlay Mixer. If that gives you troubles, then change it to either VMR-7 or VMR-9 (renderless). You can find this option via: MPC Options -> Playback -> Output -> DirectShow Video

In Windows Media Player there also is an option that influences the renderer that is used. In the WMP menu go to Tools -> Options -> Performance -> Advanced. This brings up the video acceleration settings. There you can choose between 'Use overlays' and 'Use high quality mode' (VMR).

You should start DEFRAG only from MS-DOS. Starting DEFRAG from a program such as Microsoft Windows may cause you to lose data.

(Warning - Colors will look wierd in safe mode and everything will be bigger, it will go back to nomral when you are done.)

* Press F8 every second or two until you see a menu
* Select SAFE MODE and press ENTER.

* Select None from a drop down list on the left labled Screensavers.
* Press the Apply button and then the OK button

(Even if the defragmenter reports that your hard drive is 0% fragmented, continue with defragmentation)
Type exit when finish & press enter
/F - Used to defragment files, ensuring that the disk contains no empty spaces between files.

/U - Used to defragment files, leaving empty spaces between files.

/S - Used to control the way in which files are sorted in their directories. Without this option, the current order of files will be maintained. You can use any combination of the following sort options . Do not put spaces between the values.

N Alphabetical order by name.
N- Reverse alphabetical order by name.
E Alphabetical order by extension.
E- Reverse alphabetical order by extension.
D By date and time, earliest first.
D- By date and time, latest first.
S By size, smallest first.
S- By size, largest first

/B - Used to restart your computer after files have been reorganized.
/skiphigh Used to load DEFRAG into conventional memory, rather than in upper memory.

/LCD - Specifies an LCD color scheme.
/BW - Specifies a black and white color scheme.
/GO - Used to disable the graphic mouse and graphic character set.

If you want to load DEFRAG into conventional memory and run it specifying that the files on drive C be sorted alphabetically by name, enter the following:

defrag c: /f /sn /skiphigh

DEfrag From My Computer
Delete Temporary Files
Do not perform files deletions unless you are confident of your ability to safely delete and restore files from your hard drive. If you are not comfortable with this, skip this section and go directly to Reboot in Safe Mode.

When programs are installed and while they are running they create temporary files. The software is supposed to clean up after itself, but sometimes this doesn't happen. These files are placed in special directories so they can be easily located and deleted.

Cleaning out your "temp" directories will free up space on your hard drive. Do it before defragmenting, so the space can be most efficiently reclaimed.

* Delete the contents of c:\windows\temp
* Delete the contents of c:\temp (if it exists)
* Reboot and run a couple of programs as usual.
* If there are no errors reported during reboot, empty the Recycling Bin, otherwise restore any files who absence generates error messages.

Reboot to Safe Mode
(Warning - Colors will look wierd in safe mode and everything will be bigger, it will go back to nomral when you are done.)

Reboot Normally, You are Done

If the hard drive is badly fragmented, defragmentation can take many hours. The longer it takes, the more improvement you will usually see. If you do this monthly, it should not take long.

On a very large or badly fragmented drive, the defragmenter will often stall at 10% for a long time while it is figuring out how to move your files.

Sometimes in Windows, 95/98/ME, the defragmenter will lock up at a certain point on the hard drive. Give it an hour or two, if the percentage complete does not change, there may be a problem with the hard drive or the operating system. Sometimes rebooting will allow you to continue, sometimes it will not. If rebooting does not solve the problem, you may wish to try applying updates to your operating system and trying again.
Factors Affecting the Time Required to De fragment a Hard Drive

* The size of the hard drive
* The speed of the hard drive, seek time and data transfer rate
* How badly fragmented the hard drive is
* Even in Safe Mode, a screen saver can slow defragmentation down by forcing it to restart.
