1-abc.net - Cleaning Box

The longer your Windows system is installed, the more unnecessary data will be collected on your computer. This program helps you to find this data and deletes it for you! Five powerful modules will guide you step-by-step through the process of cleaning up your system!

Do you wonder why your computer becomes slower from month to month, even if you install only programs you need and uninstall everything that you did not use for a long time? Is booting time on your machine at home always longer than on your office PC? Are you surprised that you find files, registry entries and other traces of things you entered on your computer again even after years?

The reasons for this are different. Some of this unnecessary data belongs to programs that were not uninstalled correctly, even if it looked like they were. More data trash is saved to your computer whenever you surf the web, independent from any security software you use while visiting websites. And other garbage is produced by the programs you are working with or your Windows system itself.

In the end, there are unnecessary files in temporary folders, old backup files in program folders, old entries in different places of your Windows Registry, duplicate files everywhere, and temporary internet files of different browsers stay in hidden folders waiting for a moment when they will be used again, even if this day will never come.

This program combines all functions of Hard Drive Washer, Surf Trail Washer, Registry Washer, File Washer and Duplicate Finder with a very easy-to-use interface.

Cleaning Box – free disk space, keep your privacy and enjoy a faster system!

What is file clutter?

File Clutter generally refers to files created by programs for temporary use. Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and others routinely save the content of every page we visit. Including images, text, script, cookies among others. In fact most Windows software create temporary files that are no longer needed but often not removed.

Performance

In simple terms, Windows maintains a list of all files on our hard drives, the longer the list, the longer it takes to access the files we need. This directly affects our computers speed.

Privacy

Another aspect to consider is privacy. Everything we do on our computers is stored in these files. By removing this clutter we in effect protect our privacy.

Softland - novaPDF Professional Desktop

Using novaPDF, both individual users and businesses are able to create PDF documents and easily share them, making the process of collaboration more efficient. With just a few clicks you can have your company’s reports, contracts, workflows, agreements, marketing plans, spreadsheets, forms, products list, price list, charts, emails or other printable documents converted in PDF format. Its purpose is to enable users to exchange electronic documents easier, independently of the application in which they were initially created. The resulted PDF files can be viewed on any computer with a PDF viewer (reader) installed.

This PDF printer driver is compatible with 32/64-bit editions of these operating systems: Windows 2000/XP/2003 Server/Vista, Windows 7. It requires approximately 20MB of free disk space for the installation. It doesn’t require third party tools to be installed in order to generate the PDF file (like Adobe Acrobat or GhostScript).

novaPDF allows you to define different private profiles, each with its own printing to PDF settings. This feature is very useful if there are different users using the same computer (and each has different printing preferences) or if you are the only user but need different settings for printing documents.

This PDF creator can generate PDF files with embedded fonts. This means that your PDF files can be read and printed on any system without distributing your font separately, while maintaining the original intended design. Furthermore, novaPDF can embed only the characters used in that document, so that the size of the resulting PDF will be smaller.

You can personalize your documents by setting the document information (title, subject, author, keywords). This feature is useful also if you want to publish your PDF files on the Web, as search engines will index your PDF files and use the document information to display it in the results. Furthermore, novaPDF can create PDF/A compliant PDF files, thus is ideal for long-term archiving of documents.

This PDF printer driver has a lot of features that allows you to: modify the paper size (or create new custom page sizes for large format printing), modify the resolution (from 72 to 2400 dpi), change page orientation (portrait, landscape), embed fonts (support for OpenType, TrueType and Type1 fonts), merge PDF files and lots more. The user interface supports localization and novaPDF is available in several different languages.

novaPDF can automatically detect links in a document (either links between files or web links starting with “http://”, “www”, “mailto:” or “ftp://”) and include them as clickable links too in the resulted PDF file. This option is specifically useful when you want to distribute a PDF file on the web and you want the links included in the original document to be accessible for users that receive the PDF file as clickable active links.

novaPDF installs add-ins for Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) which lets users create PDF files faster from Office applications. A major advantage of the add-ins is the conversion of hidden hyperlinks and easy conversion of bookmarks. Without having the add-ins installed, hidden hyperlinks cannot be recognized and converted.

novaPDF can detect the headings in the printed document and add bookmarks in the generated PDF files. You have to define the text attributes for the document headings (font, size, style, color) and for the generated bookmarks.

You can send the generated PDF files via email. novaPDF can send the PDF using the default email client or directly using the SMTP server. The email properties (subject, content, email addresses) can be configured too.

You can password protect the PDF files you create and permissions can be restricted to prevent the document from being viewed, printed, modified, copied or annotated. Your PDF documents will be protected and secured with 40-bit and 128-bit encryption algorithms. Additionally, if you have a digital signature you can sign your PDF documents thus certifying the authenticity and integrity of the PDF document for the recipient. PDF files can be edited thus it’s recommended to sign important PDF documents such as invoices, contracts, agreements to be sure the document hasn’t been altered without authorization. The PDF digital signature will be checked and indicated by the PDF reader when opened (i.e. Adobe Reader).

novaPDF Professional has a server edition that supports shared network printing or access via Remote Desktop Connection, Terminal Servers or Citrix. It can be installed on one computer in a network environment (printer server) and used by any computer within that network, without having to install it on each computer. Simply share novaPDF on the printer server and connect to it from the other computers. You can also define public profiles. These profiles are created on the server computer and are automatically propagated to all client computers. You can configure some profiles to save the PDF files in a folder on server and all client computers will generate the PDF files in that folder.
