System Tray Cleaner

System Tray Cleaner is a simple tool to remove icons from the system tray. It lists up all the system tray icons, and also identify which programs they belong to. After the listing by System Tray Cleaner you can choose whether you wish to stop a certain program, remove it from startup (so it doesn't start automatically every time you turn on your computer) or simply uninstall it. This helps not only to get rid of the clutter in the system tray but also speed up computer's start time.

KeyScrambler

The identities keyed-in online are becoming increasingly vulnerable to keylogging attacks. The stakes are even higher when we use Internet banking or perform business-related tasks online. KeyScrambler can protect by encrypting (scrambling) the keystrokes and effectively making them indecipherable. KeyScrambler offers encryption to keystrokes in over 150 most often used browsers and applications - protects your inputs in IE, Firefox, messages in Yahoo mail, hotmail, and gmail, user credentials related to online banking logins, and credit cards. While KeyScrambler Personal encrypts keystrokes of your username(s) and password(s), KeyScrambler Professional encrypts keystrokes of all your input, be it a credit card number or a whole page of email you type out on the Internet.

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…
