Utility Center: Free x 4

Here are four new additions to the Utility Center:

Notepad++ – This is an excellent choice for a free text editor. It like the built-in Notepad for Window, but better (hence its name); and, it’s free. One of the best things about this program is that it’s fast, so it’s not a strain to right-click a file and click Edit in Notepad++.

WinDirStat – Running out of space on your hard drive? Not sure why? Run this program for a graphical representation of your hard drive and the space being used. Free of charge.

Power Defragmenter – Need to defrag? Don’t bother with te built-in utility. Power Defragmenter uses the power of Contig, another great Sysinternals app, to get the job done. It’s basically a GUI for the CLI-only contig. I’ve also written about it in the past.

Audacity – This is the obvious choice for simple audio editing. It’s free and easy to use. It’s stable and I’ve recommended it in the past for creating your own MP3 ring tones.
