Create and manage virtual machines with Paragon’s Virtualization Manager 12 Professional

Virtual machines are becoming quite the hot computing topic.  In many cases, they are becoming the way to go for OS testing, specialty software installs, demos and other evaluations.  This is one of the reasons why I like Virtualization Manager Professional. It’s a VM tool for Windows.

Creating bootable images of a supported guest operating system is easy with their native tools. Moving and managing them in combination with each other, isn’t always easy. Managing the combination of more than one guest OS on a host OS, isn’t always easy either.

Virtualization Manager Professional has full OS support for any Windows version from XP forward, including all server edtions.  With it, you can migrate an OS from a physical drive, to a virtual one, or convert a backup image to a bootable virtual drive.  You can also migrate full, bootable operating systems from virtual to physical, virtual to virtual as well as physical to physical.

If you need to make potentially volatile changes to a virtual machine, say for example, to install a difficult to remove application, and don’t want to worry about dealing with program artifacts that may get left behind in your registry or on your hard drive, you can use VMP’s snapshot mode to connect a virtual disk as if it’s an ordinary physical disk and open up all physical-disk functionality in a virtual environment. You can use a read only mode or a special read/write mode that creates a snapshot and applies all changes after the snapshot to test the application without destroying your virtual source drive.

VMP supports virtual machines from Oracle VirtualBox 4, Microsoft Virtual PC, VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion and Parallels Desktop but Parallels supports Connect VD only.

Keep your Windows Registry clean and optimized with Registry First Aid

While powerful, the Windows Registry isn’t the sturdiest thing in the world. Its easily corrupted, easily fragmented and often contains a lot of orphaned or unneeded information. I can point to any number of PC’s anywhere in the world and after a simple analysis show you how messed up their Registries are.  That’s why I really, REALLY like Registry First Aid. It’s a system utility for Windows.

Registry First Aid is a safe and easy to use utility and it safely fixes more Registry errors than ever before. Its new color coded results make identifying corrections much easier for the novice PC user. RFA’s color coded results allow you to see exactly what can be fixed without any possible problems.

RFA helps eliminate system crashes, software lockups and slow loading programs caused by incorrect Registry entries leftover from software installations & uninstallations that went awry. Registry First Aid fixes these problems by removing this orphaned or unneeded data. Hundreds of these entries bog down the registry, slow down your computer and cause other software to lock up. RFA offers added features that check the registry for unused software entries and “Run” registry entry errors. It also supports adding multiple entries into an excluded list and a new safe invalid path detection algorithm.

Registry First Aid scans registry for orphan file/folder references, finds these files or folders on your drives that may have been moved from their initial locations, and then rewrites your Registry with the correct locations. In addition, if your registry has links to files of deleted applications, Registry First Aid will find these invalid entries and remove them from your registry. With Registry First Aid, your Windows registry will be always clean and correct, helping your programs load faster and speeding up your computer. Registry First Aid helps you can keep it clean and keep it fast!

SmartClose – a program that can create a system snapshot of your running programs and than restart/restore them later

As you might know, when it comes to install a new program to your computer, it is highly recommended to close all running programs. One of the reasons for this is because during the installation, the program(s) that you want to install might need to update some system files (e.g. system DLLs) that are currently used by the the running programs. In such case, the installation process might not complete successfully. The same recommendation applies when you want to defragment your hard-drive – to close all applications and other constantly running programs (e.g. anti-virus utilities). A program that you’ll find very handy in such case is SmartClose.
