ControlPad

ControlPad can help turn the numeric keypad on your keyboard to a
Windows command execution system. The numeric keys can be configured
to eecute any program, open any document, open any web address or send
any series of keystrokes to the operating system. Using ControlPad is
easy - open the programme, press and hold the * key on the numeric
keypad, for about a second. This would make a small window to pop up
to let the entry of any keyword or numeric code. Pressing the code
followed by Enter will execute the associated command. Laptop users
(without a numeric keypad) need to use F12 key, press and hold it
instead of * as the launch key. ControlPad is customizable, you can
configure the location of your commands file - for easy backup, Change
almost every aspect of the user interface like colors, transparency,
size, font, and Change sounds / add your own. A command can be
anything you can run from the Windows Run dialog (programs, documents,
web addresses) or any series of simulated keystrokes (e.g. Ctrl+C then
Ctrl+V). The setup file of ControlPad has a simple installer and
uninstaller. ControlPad does not register anything in the Windows
registry, aver its developers.

ControlPad v0.65 can be downloaded at

Virtual PC

If you, like me, frequently install and uninstall software your PC
could slow down or perform poorly. Solution? Use Microsoft's Virtual
PC to keep the main OS fresh and quick. For example, Vista users can
try out XP compatible applications without having to format the system
- Just Install XP on the Virtual PC and try the various applications,
games that are Compatible with XP but not with Vista. Whenever a new
application, or a game or a browser add-on needs to be tried, just
install them on the Virtual PC. If found ok these can be then
installed in the main System. Deploying Virtual PC can be ideal to
browse the web to ensure that the main OS Is safe from malware or
trojan attacks, or whatever, courtesy the Internet. Also, the advance
users can try experimenting with registry hacks without a care about
the crashing of the system, thanks to Virtual PC. You can add
additional virtual hard drives, connect the LAN of the Host and do
Possibly everything with Virtual PC. Obviously if the main system is
formatted all configurations of the Virtual PC would be lost.

Please suggest a utility to manage passwords,
preferably with a password generator.

You could try PList, a password management tool.
It can also generate passwords based on the words
in a sentence. PList v.2.6 (updated June 2009)
