01.  SOUNDOFF.  The program lets you quickly and easily turn off Windows sounds 
with the right-click of a mouse button. This is especially handy when you want 
to listen to music without hearing all the clinks and clunks of Windows 
actions. To currently do this, you have to go to the control panel, select the 
Sounds and Multimedia applet, select the Sounds tab, then change to No Sounds. 
In addition, this program lets you rename and delete your added sounds schemes. 
It also has an option to make sure your current sound scheme stays that way, as 
some other programs will change your sound scheme without you knowing.  Free 
download at http://www.sdsoftware.org/default.asp?id=10794 .

02.  FILEPHILE at http://www.filephile.net/index.php offers a free account to 
make secure unlimited file transfers to any computer, any file, any size, 
anywhere, with professional grade encryption, even when both users are behind 

03.  ARTWEAVER supports many different digital brushes with a wide variety of 
image editingtools, filters, transparency and layers support, and support for 
the most common fileformats to bring out your artistic talents.  Download free

04.  WINPOOCH describes itself as an open source watch dog for Windows.  With

In a couple of weeks we'll be doing another random drawing to give away more 
than $100 in great software.  The goodies will go to subscribers of Neat Net 
Tricks Premium as they always do.  If you aren't subscribed, it's just $12 for 
24 issues, an entire year, with a lot more features than you see here in the 
Standard Issue.  If you sign up at http://www.neatnettricks.com/store and you 
don't think it's well worth the money, let me know and I'll refund every cent. 
So, you have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain in great reading material 
(but then, I'm a little biased :-))
