GEOSoft Software


New Software:  MD5 Check

This software is often updated so check back frequently.

There is also other software that I have written which is either scattered throughout this site or is in another software category.  For example you might want to look for Mem911. Check Bits 'n Bytes on the menu.  This page now also includes the MD5 checksum for each file.  Look under the download buttons for them.

 

GEODisk 3©

Are you having a problem when you try to run Windows Defrag or Scandisk?
Download and install GEODisk 3©.  This is the tool to solve your Scandisk and Defrag problems with Windows 98 and Windows ME.  It has a new user interface to simplify the process for you.  GEODisk 3© will check for processes that may be incomplete and recommend that you restart your system if any are found.  You may then use the interface to select which tasks should be performed and the options available for each one.  GEODisk 3©  now allows you to select a single drive for Defrag and Scandisk in the event that you have more than 1 drive or partition on your system.  The first step that GEODisk 3© performs is the removal of unnecessary files which you decide upon and select.  It will then shutdown all tasks (except those required by Windows) which are running in the background (including TCP) before proceeding to run the Defrag and Scandisk programs.
When all of the selected tasks have been completed GEODisk 3© will then optionally restart or shutdown your system.  It also has an all new 'Save Settings' feature which will allow you to continually use the same settings simply by placing a check in the 'Use Previous Settings' box.

Freeware (however this one was a fair amount of work so donations will be accepted.  Use the PayPal button on the left,  No Cash? No Problem!  See the help file for details)

Version 3.0.0.1  

Address Book Manager 3

Do you need to use, manage and create multiple Address Books in Windows©

Download and install Address Book Manager 3.  This is an application that will allow you to easily manage multiple Address Books in the default folder.  It eliminates the need for creating folders and groups in your main Address Book.  Using the normal Address Book you will lose the folder and group structure if you attempt to Import or Export the data.  Separate Address Books will do away with that problem And you can even use it to change the default Address Book which will be used in Outlook Express and other applications.   EZ Paste takes all of the drudgery out of pasting several names into an Address Book at one time.  It eliminates the problem of you having to manually confirm each entry.  The Create New option allows you to easily create a new Address Book. This version features a new interface and the help files which were inadvertently left out the last time.  Works on all versions of Windows.

Version 3.1.0.7

RegInfo

Find what you need to know about your computer and operating system quickly

Do you need to find information about your Win9x computer system?
Download and run RegInfo on your SystemIt reports the following Items:


The Operating System and Version Number.
The type of processor (CPU) being used.
Make and Model of motherboard if available.
The Windows Product Key.
The Windows Product ID.
The Windows Installation Path.
If Windows has been properly registered with Microsoft.

The Registered Organization.
The Computer Name on your network

This comes in handy when you sell or purchase a used computer with the Operating System already installed and all you want to do is change your personal information.  It also quickly recovers the Windows Product Key when required to re-install Windows and all of the information can be saved to the Windows Clipboard for pasting into other documents such as a log file or a newsgroup post.  No learning curve.  Just run the file and click the obvious buttons.
Works with Windows 95/98/ME.  Watch for an upcoming new version that will also work on Windows XP and newer systems.

  Notice:  RegInfo can also be run from this server without downloading it.  Look in the menu under Hardware - System Tools.

Freeware  but again I'm always open to donations to cover development costs.  Use the PayPal button on the left.

There is a new version coming very soon

HOSTS File Manager © Version 1.0.1.2

Download it now for better system security

There is a new version about to be released so check back often.  Until then you can still use this one.

The HOSTS file is used for blocking unwanted web pages from loading in your browser.  However, management of the file is not all that easy for novice users.  The one drawback is that once loaded, the file is soon forgotten and not updated nearly often enough.  The HOSTS File Manager © has several features that make it more secure against some of the newer tricks such as HOSTS file hijacking

The features currently incorporated are:

  • Backup of the HOSTS file (2 stage backup) (Auto and Manual)

  • Check the integrity of the HOSTS file.

  • Check for Updates of HOSTS file at http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

  • Ability to Block Sites as you see fit.

  • Enable or Disable the HOSTS file

  • Protection against Inadvertently leaving HOSTS disabled

  • Protects your custom URL's when you update the HOSTS file by using a HOSTS.cst file.

  • Allows you to Restore a previous backup from the user Interface.

  • Optional password protection for "Disable HOSTS file".

  • Command line switch to enable scheduled updating of HOSTS.

Version 1.0.0.0

MD5 Check

Check the MD5 hash code of a file.

Supports Drag and Drop and command line execution.

 

When you get an archive with a piece of software or some documents for some of us (and maybe even you) it is important to know if the archive is the original one and no one has modified it on its way to you.

The simplest way to do that is to determine a "signature" or "hash" of that file. You then compare the hash you have determined with the hash you can see on the site where the original files is stored. If  the two hashes are different then you can know for sure that your copy of the file is not a copy of the original one! If the two hashes are equal then you may have a correct copy. You can not be 100% sure, but there is a very small probability that two different files will have the same hash.

 

Freeware  but only for now because the program is still in development.

Future versions will include a user interface as well as the ability to handle multiple files.
