    End It All

    A great utility for shutting everything off is EndItAll by Neil Rubenking. You can find it at:

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://hotfiles.zdnet.com/cgi-bin/texis/swlib/hotfiles/info.html?b=pcm&fcode=0011NB>http://hotfiles.zdnet.com/cgi-bin/texis/sw...cm&fcode=0011NB</A>

    I have found that it's best to shut everything off except systray & Explorer whenever you want to do any real housecleaning. That's especially true for:
    scandisk
    defrag
    backups

    and this utility is great for that.

    I use EndItAll - it's great, especially when I need to close down everything prior to do a scan disk or disk defrag. However, you might want to also keep open any firewall software, especially if you have an "always on" internet connection like cable.

    An alternative that I have found useful is to schedule a task to be "run-once" at next startup.

    The simplest way to do this is to leave a .reg file on your desktop which you can click and merge. I used Xteq XSetup to create the attached sample file.

    Re: End It All

    Hi Drk:

    It seems to have disappeared from ZD Net's site. However, I searched Google
    AptivaToolbox here.

    Funny, I found under PC Magazine Extra, <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.zdnet.com/pcmextra/utils/current.htm>this link</A> a link to it, but when I tried to download it, I got a Page not Found message. They must have taken it off. I'd upload it, but the zip file is 392KB. If you can't find it, post back & I'll send it to you directly...it is free.

    Hope this helps.

    Here's the reason... it seems they've finally released a new version. Haven't tried it yet myself, but here's the link I found.

    I had to log in to the site to get it...
