Have you ever wanted to copy some text from a dialog box which doesn’t provide such functionality?
Textify was created to solve this problem: you can point your mouse over the text, click on the mouse shortcut (Shift + Middle click by default), and get a selectable view of the text.
The tool can be launched with a hidden window by using the -hidewnd command line switch.

7+ Taskbar Tweaker: Windows 10, the first major update

Hi guys and gals!

A couple of days ago, the first major update for Windows 10 was officially released. Unfortunately, the update has introduced enough changes to break compatibility with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, as many of you have noticed.

I can’t tell when a compatible version of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker will be ready, but I hope to make an alpha version available in a week or two.

Update: The new version is now officially supported. Get 7+ Taskbar Tweaker here.

Unchecky v0.4

I’m happy to announce that Unchecky v0.4 is now available!

Here is what’s new in this version:

Support for browser offers

This feature was requested since the first version of Unchecky was released, and I’ve been planning to implement it for a long time. Now, Unchecky is finally able to combat offers in the browser. Just like for native installers, the checkbox is automatically unchecked, and a warning is displayed when a checkbox with an offer is clicked.

Warning tooltips

When you click on a button which causes an installation of a potentially unwanted program, Unchecky shows a warning message box. But until now, you could not know whether a button causes an installation of a potentially unwanted program before clicking on it. Unchecky v0.4 provides a new option, which allows to display a tooltip while hovering on such a button. That way, you can know which buttons to avoid even before clicking on them!
The new option can be enabled in the Settings page of Unchecky.

DumpAddressColor (an OllyDbg 2 plugin)

Colorizes the double-words in the CPU dump of OllyDbg 2 by the following rules:
Red: an address to a code block of a module.
Magenta: an address to a non-code block of a module.
Yellow: an address to a non-module memory block.
Black: a handle of a window which belongs to the debuggee process.

The colors can be changed in the .ini file.

Limitations: double-words across rows are not processed.

Symbols on Demand (an OllyDbg plugin)

OllyDbg is able to use dbghelp.dll and symsrv.dll to show extended debug information, such as the module source code (if referenced by the debug information) or module symbols from a PDB file (which can be fetched from the Microsoft Symbol Server for system modules). The problem is that if you turn on this option, module loading becomes much slower. On the other hand, this information is very handy, so there’s a dilemma as of whether to turn it on.

The Symbols on Demand plugin provides the best of both worlds: it disables loading of this extended debug information by default, but allows to load it explicitly for any module, at any time. Using this approach, loading is still fast, but if you need to load extended debug information for a module, you can easily do that.

OllyDbg v1.10 and v2.01 are supported. For, OllyDbg v1.10, there’s additional functionality: you can set the symbols search path, which is set by default to SRV*.\Symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols. You can also choose to retrieve undecorated symbol names. These options can be set in the INI file of OllyDbg, in the plugin’s section.

For your convenience, here are the dbghelp.dll and symsrv.dll files:

7+ Taskbar Tweaker for Windows 10: beta version

About a week ago, Windows 10 became generally available for updating. Today, I’m happy to present the beta version of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, which is compatible with Windows 10. All the existing options should work, except the following advanced options: list_reverse_order and tray_icons_padding. These two options cannot be tweaked in Windows 10 using the same tricks that the tweaker used in earlier Windows versions, so they don’t work in Windows 10. I might look at reimplementing them for Windows 10 in the future.

Please try the beta version, and if you encounter any issues, please let me know.

Virtuoz virtual desktop utility

I’m happy to present Virtuoz, the virtual desktop utility.

Virtuoz was designed to be a minimal and robust program that allows to have more than one desktop on Windows. It was inspired by Sysinternals Desktops, but uses a different approach, which doesn’t impose the limitations which Desktops is bound to.
