TidySongs Review

Ahhh... Just thought I'd do a post before bed and talk about this software I have spent the last couple hours playing with. It's called TidySongs and this is my TidySongs review.

Some of my closest friends who have been on my computer know that I am not a very neat person. I have folders all over the place, and my Music collection isn't any different. It is so much of a mess and has none of the correct tags. Tonight I finally got sick of that and was looking online for a solution when I came across TidySongs.

I spent a couple hours using TidySongs to fix my music collection, and I am so much happier with my music collection now. TidySongs was able to add album art, rename genres, remove duplicates, fix spelling errors, etc. It really helped with my collection.

Also, if you want, you can let TidySongs fix your songs all at once while you step away from your computer. I would have normally used this, but I had a lot of fun using TidySongs tonight and seeing what all it could do.

I was wondering just how TidySongs was able to fix all these song tags for me. Apparently TidySongs has it's own online database that it uses to look your songs up and get the correct tags. Pretty cool.

In all, I highly recommend it to my blog readers out there if you have large or unorganized music collections. If you spend as much time as I do listening to music on the computer, a product like TidySongs is a must have.

Driver Robot Review

Hey to all my friends and readers of this blog. I am back to do another review. Well... I wasn't really planning on doing a review until a few minutes ago. Earlier today one of my closest friends since childhood e-mailed me and asked me to take a look at this software called Driver Robot. My friend had been having problems trying to update his drivers and he thought maybe Driver Robot would help. I read his e-mail and spent about an hour with Driver Robot. I figured instead of just sharing my thoughts with him, I would go ahead and post a Driver Robot review on my blog.

For those of you who don't know what Driver Robot is, you may have gotten the idea from the previous paragraph. Driver Robot basically searchs your computer and looks for outdated drivers. From there, Driver Robot connects to the internet to update your drivers. It's a brilliant idea for a program.

Just be reading the description earlier of Driver Robot, I was excited at the idea of a program like this. This would really be useful for many of the computer novices out there. Even people who i've studied with in the computer science program have had a hard time with updating drivers.

Anyway... I went ahead and tried out Driver Robot. And it was as good as I hoped it would be. Driver Robot makes updating your drivers very easy. I tend to keep my drivers updated as I do everything else on my computer. However Driver Robot found close to 20 outdated drivers which was really impressive to me. After searching for the drivers, Driver Robot easily was able to update the drivers. It was really nice.

I don't have much else to say about Driver Robot. It's purpose is simple. Find your outdated drivers and update them. And with that... it does an amazing job of it. I recommend that every person reading this download Driver Robot. This is the type of software that should be included with Windows when you buy your PC. Five stars out of five.

Perfect Uninstaller Review

Hey everyone! I wanted to quickly talk a bit about a program I was using earlier today that I tried out. This software is called Perfect Uninstaller, and I decided to do a Perfect Uninstaller Review.

Some of my readers who haven't heard of Perfect Uninstaller might be wondering what exactly it is. Well... Perfect Uninstaller is a software solution for removing unwanted programs from your computer. Some people might try and use a programs uninstaller or Windows Add/Remove. Often times though these won't completely remove the program. The program may leave behind registry keys, shortcuts, etc. Sometimes you need a more in-depth uninstaller. That's where Perfect Uninstaller comes in.

So besides the obvious, what else does Perfect Uninstaller do? It removes programs much quicker. Perfect Uninstaller is also better at removing hidden programs from your machine. And of course like I mentioned, Perfect Uninstaller can also remove leftover registry keys from various software programs.

In wrapping this up, I really really like Perfect Uninstaller. I wish Microsoft would include Perfect Uninstaller with Windows as a replacement to the outdated Windows Add/Remove. It would benefit a lot of users.

Edit: ACA Utilities is offering Perfect Uninstaller as part of a bundle with 14 other software programs for the price of one. It's a great deal and I highly recommend spending the extra bit of money to get the other software as well.

ACA Utilities Review

Hey everyone. I recently came across a great deal. I decided to create a post and talk a bit about it. This deal is for a software bundle being offered online called ACA Utilities. I was discussing with a friend earlier about this deal, and I decided I would do an ACA Utilities review on my blog.

So let's get right to what ACA Utilities is exactly. Like I mentioned, it was a software bundle. But what software does it come with? Currently the list of software that comes with ACA Utilities is Registry Easy, Perfect Uninstaller, Driver Checker, Spyware Cease, Advanced Defrag, Duplicate File Cleaner, Final Uninstaller, Evidence Smart, Memory Savior, Final Sync, Convert Genius, Cookbook Easy, Convert My PDF, and Recoveryer.

That is a total of 14 software programs for the price of one. Of course... this would be worthless if the software that came with this bundle didn't perform well. However I spent awhile with the various software programs, and here are my thoughts on them.

Registry Easy - I had reviewed this in a previous entry. It's a really great Registry Cleaner, by far one of the best.

Perfect Uninstaller - A great program to use to uninstall hard to remove programs from your computer. Much more effective than Windows Add/Remove Programs

Driver Checker - Another great program. Driver Checker is used to update your computer drivers and search for updated drivers on the internet. Very handy and easy to use.

Spyware Cease - An Anti-Spyware product. It performed alright, but not the greatest.

Advanced Defrag - I had reviewed this in a previous entry as well. A really great Disk Defragmentor. Much better then the Windows Defragmenter in my opinion. I love this program.

Duplicate File Cleaner - Good piece of software you can use to remove duplicate files on your computer.

Final Uninstaller - A lot like Perfect Uninstaller. You can use this one or the other. No need to use both.

Evidence Smart - Software used to clear up your internet tracks. It's a good program, but a lot of it's functions can be done through Registry Easy.

Memory Savior - This software is used to free up your Computer RAM. Very handy to have.

Final Sync - Makes it easy to back up files to a USB drive. Seriously... back up your important files! You all know how upset I was awhile back when I lost all my files.

Convert Genius - Allows you to change files to different file types. For instance you can convert an MP3 to a WAV. Works well if you need to use software like this.

Cookbook Easy - Is used to manage your recipes. It's a good program I guess, but very out of place in this bundle.

Convert My PDF - Let's you convert PDF files to various type of document files. For instance, you can convert a PDF to a DOC. Works well.

Recoveryer - Used to recover deleted files. I didn't have too much success with this program.

In all, I must say I really like this software bundle. In my opinion, this is an absolute must have for every computer user. If you ask me, Microsoft should really buy the company that offers this bundle and include all of these programs for free on new computers. Most of them are very useful.

Restore Deleted Files Review

Accidentally deleting files is a mistake everyone seems to make at some point. There are many programs on the market that claim to restore deletes files. Some of them are good, others you should avoid. Restore Deleted Files is one program you should probably avoid.

Testing Restore Deleted Files left me less then impressed. Restore Deleted Files found many files to recover, but nearly all of them were temporary internet files. I wasn't able to find any important documents that Restore Deleted Files could recover. That is supposed to be the main purpose of this software.

However one thing I should note is that Restore Deleted Files lets you scan and see which files can be recovered BEFORE you buy the software. So if you are trying to recover a certain file, you may want to give this program a shot. It's possible that you will have better luck with Restore Deleted Files then I did.

TubeTilla Pro Review

Hey everyone! I got an e-mail from a friend asking me to take a look at this software called TubaTilla Pro. I spent some time with it and gave him my thoughts. I figured I would also go ahead and post a TubeTilla Pro Review on this blog. So here goes... :)

These days, YouTube appears to be everywhere. It's in TV shows, in the news, and all over the internet. YouTube has quickly become the way to share videos with others. However, the one downside to YouTube is that there aren't download links on the

That is where TubeTilla Pro comes in. TubeTilla Pro is basically a program that will download YouTube videos onto your computer.

So how does TubeTilla Pro work? Well, whenever you find a YouTube video that you want to download, you will open up TubeTilla Pro. Once you have opened up TubeTilla Pro, you will copy and paste the download link into TubeTilla Pro. From there, you will click "Get Video". Just like that, TubeTilla Pro will download the YouTube video you have just watched.

One feature I was especially impressed with when testing TubeTilla Pro was the ability to select the file format the YouTube video is saved as. That means you don't have to save it as a Flash Video. You can save the video in many different file formats. You can save it as an WMV, AVI, MPEG, etc. You can also save it as an MP3 to listen to on your iPod.

There are a few other features that come with TubeTilla Pro. Embed YouTube videos into Powerpoint presentations, ability to watch videos on your iPod, download multiple videos at once, and more.

Overall, I think TubeTilla Pro is a great program. The main reason you would use TubeTilla Pro is simple, downloading YouTube videos. In my opinion, TubeTilla Pro handles that perfectly. Highly recommended.

PDF Creator Live Review

Hey everyone. I got an email earlier from someone asking me which PDF software was the best for creating PDF's. I did some research and came across PDF Creator Live. So I figured I would type a PDF Creator review for my blog based on my experiences with trying it earlier.

PDF's are everywhere these days. You may come across them when viewing an online instruction manual, buying an e-book, viewing professional documents, etc. Although there is a lot of focus these days on PDF's and how to view them, there is not nearly as much focus on how to go about actually creating a PDF. That's where PDF Creator comes in.

PDF Creator Live is actually what it sounds like, a computer program that lets you create your own PDF's. Not only that, but PDF Creator Live also allows you to password protect your PDF files. Very cool.

In testing PDF Creator Live, it does the job. There isn't really a lot to test with PDF Creator Live. It's purpose is to give you the ability to create PDF files, and it does just that.

In closing, I'm not sure how many people really will need a PDF creator Live. But if you are looking at this program because you need to create PDF files, then this program handles that task flawlessly. Highly recommended.
