Some of these programs are fairly large and may take some time to download!

The UnLocker Have you ever accidentally elbowed a new password into Windows and locked yourself out? Not yet? Or has a family member accidentally done that? Or the cat on her stroll over the keyboard? That can get extremely expensive, if you don't have the UnLocker. The Unlocker will get you back in there in 30 seconds. No fuss, no panic. Take the fear out of "Not Yet" with the UnLocker.

Clickbook installs like a printer driver, and lets you print eBooks in pocket or purse size booklet format, all pages front and back lined up and collated perfectly. Just fold the stack and run staples through the fold.
Getting 4 pages per sheet not only saves a lot of money, but makes reading in a car, bus, train or plane a lot easier, than using a stack of full size sheets. I have used ClickBook for about a dozen years, and I find it indispensible.
