Why not ?
And if you use a proxy, you can download it over and over again and feed hundreds of Hungry americans if you want. ANd if you virtualise your machine you can re-install it over and over again.
Every time there are 8 hungry people that get a meal in the US. Why not in any other country, although helping hungry Americans is also something worthy.

Last year, the folks at Neobyte, makers of Titan Backup, offered the full version of their excellent backup software free for a limited time. I’m happy to report that they’re repeating the offer with a little different slant.
You can now get the full retail version of Titan Backup v.1.5 free from Neobyte. Note that this is not the current version of the software (v2.5), but IMO it’s still a great deal. The older version worked fine and you can’t beat the price!
You can download the free version here (opens in a new window):
After you install the software, use the following key to register and activate it:
If you decide to upgrade to the latest and greatest, Neobyte is offering a coupon for a special upgrade price. Use this link to get your discounted price:

You have a lot of this stuff on the market, but most are crippled somewhere or you don't trust it enough because you really don't really know 100% what the guy is up to.
It is illegal in most countries to use this software on computers of others EXCEPT if you have clearly stated it and that the person knows it (also the consequences of the software). The problem here is that you LOG whatever you want but you have to safeguard the ACCESS to these logs in a totally different strict legal way. The logs are there ONLY if there is a legally acceptable procedure that needs urgent ACCESS to these logs. It is not because you LOG everything that anyone can have ACCESS to these logs. The fewer people have access, the more you can log.
In any case read the comments. It is not working on every VISTA and you need to disable your securitysoftware - which is not recommended.
I think however that some machines in some environments need such a software, but even this software can be circumvented somehow.
These are the links to free books and courses that we have published on this blog, even if most are now published in the links on furl next to this blog.

History Explorer is a program that lets you overview and access old versions of files. Every time you save a file, History Explorer automatically saves a copy of the old file. This simple functionality means that History Explorer has all the information it needs to let you access old versions of your files. History Explorer looks and works much like Windows Explorer except it’s designed to let you view the history of your files.

NetSearch is a effective tool for searching files in local area network. The main feature is fast searching. The program is more fast than Windows standard search. Search executes on every computer where the program is installed. Just in a few seconds you can find the file you need in all computers on the LAN.
comment : this is a must for securitypeople because this way you can also search quickly on your network if people are sharing files or if folders are open because they are fill with infected virus files (or worse because they have been hacked). It is also a way to check if default or no passwords are used on shared files in your network. You will be amazed how many shares are by accident open. Only free for today, so grab it. If you want to use it share things wit collagues be sure that you follow the internal guidelines, a good supervisor will have a good eye on what is happening on his network.
search *.* under no or general logon credentials
with the new windows worm going its rounds you can check with the credentials it uses and you can also see that every folder has at least a password on its share. Shares without passwords are so 2002 worms.

Image Mender - the program allows you to remove any lines or blemishes on your images and it also helps you to remove larger marks, logos or any other undesirable elements. Image Mender is easy to use.
The clear and user-friendly interface of the program enables you to work. You just need to highlight the part of the image you would like to correct, and then Image Mender will do the rest. After editing, you can save it in the desired format.
- Intellectual reconstruction – the program reconstructs the image under the cleared spot so fine that the traces are hardly noticeable even after the removal of large fragments;
- Ease of use - operating Image Mender is a lot simpler than operating Photoshop Clone Tool. You only need to select the fragment to be removed from the image;
- Supporting various formats – the program supports the following formats: JPEG, TIFF, BMP, PNG, TGA, MNG, RAS, RAW, JP2, JPC, PCX;
- High performance – the program is written completely in the C++ language, which ensures its high performance
