    This thread is for really small downloads (Utilities mainly).
    Only condition is that they MUST BE less than a 1 Megabyte download.
    Even those unforunates still on dialup, :cry or those on download plans MAY FIND THEM USEFUL. :(

    Your contributions are most welcome.
    Let us know if you have used them, and a small review might be nice. :-D

    Here's some to start of with.

    Looking forward to your input. :major

    I'm all for small downloads even though I have tons of free space.

    Regarding the Windows Firewall Control. We're advised to have only one firewall and I have WF and WF with Advanced Security. I don't know which one to keep but -- will the WFC program affect either of them?

    [... I apologize in advance if this post is not approriate ...]

    Are you referring to small size programs listed at MG only? There is a site TinyApps that lists these kinds of programs as well. I don't know how well they keep things up-to-date, though.

    I'm not an advocate or rep for TinyApps. It's been quite a while since I've visited that site, just happened to remember it when seeing this thread.

    At a glance I do see some programs that are "download-able" here at MG.

    No, I am not only referring to MG. :major
    I guess I am "an advocate" for MG. :-D
    I prefer to download from MG, if possible, as I have been a member for over 7 years and find most of what I use from MG, in the first instance.

    All contributions appreciated.
    Thanks for the link to TinyApps.org I will check that out.

    I haven't used Windows Firewall Control (WFC) but it appears to be only a quick link
    .
    Anyone with experience in using WFC, please step in. :)

    My note: A really small download BUT poor rating so far. Maybe this release is better. ;)
    If you try it, let us know here, how YOU rate it. :)

    Thanks Solaris, I know about the W7 design. :)
    Tclockex does it all in the one line. That is the difference, and saves a bit of taskbar horizontal screen space.

    Or two in one line. I just read that Tclockex doesn't want to install on Win7 64 bit, but I haven't been able to verify if that is correct or not.

    I haven't tried it on W7 64 bit yet, but will very soon. Will advise the outcome.

    I tried it on my son's W7 64 Bit and I got an error. :cry :(
    It doesn't appear to work on W7 64 Bit. :cry

    Thanks baklogic. :major
    I did try it at the time I listed it, but as I don't have MS Office on my new laptop, yet, so it wouldn't pick it up. :-o

    Thanks for the tip about my old post (2008 ;) )
    I will give both a re-test when I finally get my laptop set up the way I want to.
