Always on Top tool for Windows (Alternative to PowerMenu)
Windows has always had the ability to make any window the topmost one ever since Windows 3.0. Once you make a window the topmost one, other overlapping windows will always show below that window in the Z-order. It is possible to make a window the topmost one programmatically but Microsoft felt that if this control was given to end users, then application developers would misuse it to make their programs always on top. Still, third party tools can easily use the Windows API function to change this. Let's look at two ways to make a window on top.

How to recover lost files from corrupted hard drives
One of the things we wish would never happen to our computers is having a corrupted disk, and having a corrupted disk also results in having corrupted data. In this day and age, getting that corrupted data message from your computer is one of the worst things that can happen to you.

This can happen due to a virus, a system crash or just a plain error on the user’s part.

Scanned Image Conversion via PDF Converter Elite 3
There are many PDF converters that offer basic conversion options, like converting native PDFs into MS Office documents or creating PDFs from these files. Only a small number of software provide an option to convert scanned images to editable formats, such as Word and Excel, and amongst them is the PDF Converter Elite 3.
Now, optical character recognition (OCR) conversion is a very sensitive operation that usually does not result in 100% accurate converted documents. Since image documents are scanned from printed or handwritten documents and the OCR software then needs to match the font with existing ones in its database, it’s not always possible to come up with an exact match. There are other elements in a scanned file that sometimes cannot be detected by the converter, like line breaks, footnotes and bulleted lists, but PCE 3 comes the closest to performing an accurate scanned image conversion.
