Install all Windows Updates automatically

You know the problem after a fresh windows installation. First you need to do all the windows updates and this takes some time to do it manually. This is the reason why I developed this script. I actually developed it for a packet manager called enteo but it can also be used without it.

Just download it and read the readme file carefully.

It is written in vbscript and can be easily adjusted to your packet manager. Use of course at your own risk!

It is a very useful Network Sniffer for Linux. But first you need to install it:
# apt-get install tcpdump

# tcpdump –nli eth0 port 80
# tcpdump –nli eth0 host and port 80
# tcpdump –nli eth0 host and not port 22

Unfortunately Diskpart didn’t work for my Windows XP Version even it suppose to be supported. Anyway after try and error I found a good open source Partition Manager like Partition Magic.  It is called GParted and It is based on Linux and does a great job. You can get it here:
