Resource Hacker

Resource Hacker is a tool for modifying 32 bit applications, DLL, OCX and SCR files. You can "edit" applications by changing dialogs, changing or removing graphics and even removing certain application functionality. I was amazed of the things it can do. There are a lot of tutorials online about how to use this tool so I won't go into too much detail describing how it works. Instead I would like to emphasize what it can do.

I first used this program for modifying the version info of my Windows Explorer. To do this I opened the "explorer.exe" file from the Windows installation directory. I was able to modify the version info making it say whatever I wanted. Another time I wanted to change the icons of an application which I used. No problem,
Resource Hacker did the job perfectly. I realized that I could also modify bitmaps, menus, string tables, shortcut keys (they're called accelerators), version info and so on.
Resource Hacker can be used to modify almost any file. Compressed executable are not fully editable and many times all you can edit is version information. Whenever you modify a file you do it on your own risk. You'll lose all right to support from the vendor associated with the modified application. Most times there won't be any problems after modifying with Resource Hacker but to be on the safe side you should test the modified application thoroughly.

XXCLONE duplicates the whole Win NT, 2000 or XP system volume to another volume that will become ready to boot without a restore step. You may boot the system from the clone volume by simply swapping the disks when a disaster strikes. The cloned volume may be larger than the source volume, or even smaller as long as the volume data can fit. You may copy from FAT to NTFS or vice versa. XXCLONE supports PATA, USB-disk and SATA. Ideal for periodic backup, or a one-time disk upgrade, or migration.
Unlike the disk imaging tools, XXCLONE copies files and directories. Therefore, you stay in Windows and may do some work while the cloning runs in the background. With a full volume backup, files in the target volume will always de-fragmented automatically without the need for the time-consuming de-frag on the source.
XXCLONE maintains Restore Points with most recent 7 daily, 4 weekly, 12 monthly and 5 yearly records with which you can restore the exact state of the system registry.
Additional features include tools to duplicate the Volume ID, to repair non-bootable disk, and more. It supports command line arguments and suits batch file invocations, also.
Extremely easy to use with user-friendly GUI.
