Looking for something we can install on the users pc.
Have your staff sign a document that they will not download non business related files. If they break the rules, then you get rid of them. If they are not trustworthy with something as simple as that then think of what else they are probably doing that you are not aware of.

How are they doing this because if they are using software you need to take admin rights away.

You might also remind them that if they are doing this illegally its not (just) them breaking the law its the company. The consequences of which could be very nasty (iirc it's about $300,000 per infringement for corporates).

Even if they are downloading them legally the laptop belongs to the company and anything on it therefore belongs to the company so technically the company is still breaking the law as it has not paid for them.

Re: The best FREE software thread

Thanks, I will do the Form Signing bit as this will enforce the seriousness of the issue.

Don't suspect the downloads are "illegal", just eat up the mb's which untill recently cost 30c each, now cost 10c each but still not free.

Other problem is getting accurate info on what has happened. ISP can't supply anything except mb's and staff say the files were from a flash drive. Should include such in the form as we don't want flash drives and possible IT std's
None of the pc's have floppies anymore.

Re: The best FREE software thread

Image Magick is a free opensource image converter and manipulation package.
Can be commandline driven or used through a multitude of interfaces on various platforms. It supports over 100 image formats.

Ideal for automated image processing implemented via VBA. Must have for any developer working with images in any environment.

Not sure if it was already mentioned but majorgeeks.com has a pretty extensive and well organized list of freeware/shareware.

Re: The best FREE software thread

I always use"Jquery Based Image Viewer" which makes it work more like Windows Picture and Fax Viewer .
You can find it by Googlel.

Re: The best FREE software thread

Thanks for this information, it's valuable for me. There are a lot of tools for working with SQL code and database management. Recently I have found the tool SQL Complete by Devart, it's pretty good, has advanced features and the price is affordable

It has a free 30 days trial period and I managed to get a free license for SQL Complete by writing a review for the tool. The company's policy is user-friendly and it's possible to get the tool for free, all you need is to share your feedback.
