    Anyone who blogs would be interested in utilities such as these. I would have liked to have seen the prices compared. Also, it was a bit long. Maybe less would be more in this post with a Part B ya know? Having said that, my father was asking me about some of these utilities yesterday and I will be emailing him these reviews. Thanks.

    Really good program list, and note TCP Optimizer doesn’t work well for Windows Vista, which is already optimized and trust me it don’t help.
