VLC 1.1.0 (RC)/ 1.0.5 Goldeneye

VLC is an extremely popular video player that is designed to play nice with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Part of the appeal that the application offers to users is the fact that it is pretty self-sufficient as far as video codecs go. In this regard, the promise from VideoLAN is that users will only need VLC and they will be able to play the vast majority of videos on the web, simply because the app comes with the necessary codecs integrated by default.


The Release Candidate build of VLC 1.1.0 is now available for download for users of Windows operating systems, including Windows 7. When offering the new RC Build of VLC Media Player 1.1.0, VideoLAN boasted a range of enhancements from performance to additional codec support, but also bug fixes, stability and reliability improvements, etc. The RC development milestone, while signaling the video player’s proximity to finalization, is still a pre-release Build designed for testing, and not for deployment into production environments.

IObit Uninstaller - Removes unwanted programs and clean your PC

IObit Uninstaller helps you uninstall and remove unwanted programs and folders from your computer fast and easily. Where the built-in and sluggish “Windows Add or Remove Programs” option fails, IObit Uninstaller works as always and picks up the slack. What’s better, it is a free Uninstaller without installation. 

IOBit removes unwanted browser toolbars

IObit Uninstaller is the same type of application as my favorite Revo Uninstaller—it helps remove multiple applications at the same time, and then cleans up anything left in the registry that the regular uninstaller might have missed. It's not as full-featured or powerful as Revo Uninstaller, but where it stands apart is the browser toolbar detection—it can check for toolbars that aren't listed in Control Panel, and allow you to remove them easily. IObit Uninstaller is a free download for Windows only
