I did give AutoGK a look... found it a bit confusing.  Super © seems better.

http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html
Mr Chris also recommended Super some time back so I tried it then, but unless I find that post/thread I can't remember what my comments were, except I did not like it.
http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php?topic=368.msg11275#msg11275

The one thing "I just remembered" about AutoGK is "the first time you use it", look on your Taskbar for
 (I think it was) VobSub and select run/OK.

Other than that For AutoGK:
1. Select the first movie Vob
2. Select storage folder.
3. Select Convert.
That's it.

This looks like it could be a good diagnostic tool to try:

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/returnil-virtual-system-premium-edition/

Quote
The Returnil Virtual System Premium Edition is a powerful virtualization technology that completely mirrors your actual computer setup and it can create a virtual storage disk within your PC where you can save documents, data, and files while using the System Protection feature.

Returnil virtualization technology clones a computerís System Partition and boots the PC into this system rather than native Windows, allowing you run your applications in a completely isolated environment. Hence the session and all activity, malicious or otherwise, will happen in the virtual environment, not in the real PC environment. If the PC is attacked or gets infected, all you need to do is to simply reboot the PC to erase all changes. After reboot, the system will be restored to its original state, as if nothing ever happened. All of this without sacrificing computer performance or usability while helping to reduce technical support intervention and the need for routine maintenance.

I've tried it, briefly... and uninstalled it. Worth mentioning your subscription will run out after a year, and you have to install it TODAY for the installer to work. I am going to check if my 'workaround' works tomorrow ;)

Hmm.. no point unless it works tomorrow! Basically I think I found a way of making the installer run if the date isn't today. But like I say, no point if it doesn't let me install ti tomorrow!

Can we make this thread a sticky please?

That is always assuming Floydoid is willing to continue giving us the heads-up when something interesting is there?

Today's offering might be useful for the geeky types. :)

This software is great text conversion software. It allows to easily convert from text to hex, hex to text, binary to text, text to binary, and ascii to text or text to ascii, urlencoding/decoding and base64, octal to text and more!

Plus you can select a number of files to process automatically in batch (batch text conversion), and specify a default filename extension, or simply input some text into a text box and convert that way.

Yes I thought that looked useful - as long as I remember when I get home  ???


Edit - had another look - far too many disapproving thumbs for my liking - I'm giving it a miss  :police:

Steph there seems to be a crowd on GAOTD who vote software down whatever it is.... in my experience if something gets more than 50% then it's probably worth trying... not that I take much notice of the ratings.

[edit]
I see what you mean on this one... 27% is not good

I nabbed a copy of it - thanks Floydy :)

I certainly wouldnt pay $50 for it - and agree with the comments about it being described as an encryption program..  but the conversion tool for text to hex etc and back again could be very useful and thats why I downloaded it.

I think comment number 7 kinda summed it up for me.
The average user would never ever probably find a use for it (aside from perhaps generating a wireless key).
