Wireless Key View

When the password details to the wireless network are forgotten or misplaced, it can be quite frustrating to recall them. Ferreting it out is out of question as Windows won't reveal where they are stored. No more fretting now onwards as NirSoft's smart little tool Wireless Key View can expose saved Wireless Passwords. This utility reveals in plain text all the wireless passwords that have been stored by Windows' Wireless Zero Configuration and WLAN AutoConfig service. Once run, its pop-up window shows all the stored passwords on your computer – both WEP and WPA. Please note that revealation is restricted to passwords that have been stored by the Windows network management utility, and not any other. Another feature provided helps to delete pass phrases that are no longer required. Wireless Key View, a portable software, runs without any installation whatsoever - just download it and run. Wireless Key View, a freeware, works on any version of Windows from XP (SP1) to 7.

WirelessKeyView v1.33 can be downloaded at http://nirsoft.net/utils/wirelesskeyview.zip

Close All Windows

This little tool lets you close all running applications with just one click. Close All Windows works just as if you were pressing the close button for each application. It doesn't use system resources because it only flashes a `close' signal to all open windows on the desktop and then ceases. It can be really a very handy utility if you are running many applications and want all of them to quit instantly.Close All Windows is a simple utility and doesn't require installation. No settings are stored in the Windows Registry or file system. Here are some simple steps to follow - Download the ZIP archive and extract it somewhere on your hard drive, Open the extracted folder, right-click CloseAll.exe and choose Send To -> Desktop (create shortcut) from the context menu; Switch to the Desktop and rename the created shortcut to "Close All" or whatever you want; Now you can drag this shortcut to the Quick Launch Bar or to the Windows 7 Taskbar for quick access. Option to prevent certain applications from being closed by Close is provided.

The 36 KB Close All Windows v1.3 (18.2.10) for 32-bit and 64-bit can be downloaded at http://www.ntwind.com/download/CloseAll.zip

ASP.NET 3.5 interview questions with answers

The IHttpHandler and IHttpHandlerFactory interfaces ?The IHttpHandler interface is implemented by all the handlers. The interface consists of one property called IsReusable. The IsReusable property gets a value indicating whether another request can use the IHttpHandler instance. The method ProcessRequest() allows you to process the current request. This is the core place where all your code goes. This method receives a parameter of type HttpContext using which you can access the intrinsic objects such as Request and Response. The IHttpHandlerFactory interface consists of two methods - GetHandler and ReleaseHandler. The GetHandler() method instantiates the required HTTP handler based on some condition and returns it back to ASP.NET. The ReleaseHandler() method allows the factory to reuse an existing handler.Does .NET CLR and SQL SERVER run in different process?Dot Net CLR and all .net realtes application and Sql Server run in same process or we can say that that on the same address be…
