System Utilities Software

The system utilities software listed below will help keep your system running and performing within normal operating parameters. The free system clean-up utilities such as Ad-Aware and Spybot will remove the normal internet plaque that builds up on your computer over time. Although these programs can not always remove all of the various adware and spyware these programs have been chosen as a first line of defense for all of our computer systems. If your computer becomes infected with a more serious version of adware or spyware, that these programs can not remove, you should seek professional assistance from a BetterBuilt.com service technician. Other system utilities on this page are more technical and should be used as needed or as directed by your BetterBuilt.com representative.

Microsoft LLTD protocol

When you run Network Map or open your network browser in Windows Vista®, computers that are running Microsoft Windows® XP do not appear on the completed diagram. For Windows XP the solution is simple, all you have to do is download and install the LLTD protocol. Once you’ve installed the LLTD Responder, and enabled File and Printer Sharing in Windows Firewall, a computer running Windows XP can respond to other Windows Vista computers on the network that are attempting to create a network map.

Microsoft Memory Tester

The Windows Memory Diagnostic tests the Random Access Memory (RAM) on your computer for errors. The diagnostic includes a comprehensive set of memory tests. If you are experiencing problems while running Windows, you can use the diagnostic to determine whether the problems are caused by failing hardware, such as RAM or the memory system of your motherboard.

Microsoft Windows Updates

Microsoft windows updates are designed to repair flaws in the Microsoft operating system and installed Microsoft applications. Most windows based computers are currently configured to only download and install the critical updates leaving the optional updates uninstalled. These optional updates are also important because they provide your computer with additional ability to run new software and windows features.

Image Resizer powertoy for Windows

This was an extremely useful tool from Microsoft for Windows XP. Microsoft made it open source and now it has been rewritten to work for Windows 7. Adds a context menu option to resize a picture when you right click on one. I used to use it when e-mailing picture files.
