OSForensics
Find out exactly how a computer is being used with this powerful forensics tool

OSForensics is a comprehensive computer forensics package that can help you locate and analyse the enormous amount of digital evidence that may be available on a computer system.

This kind of forensic tool is normally used to discover exactly what someone's been doing on their PC. So for instance you can quickly view the documents they've been opening, the web sites they've visited, the USB devices they've connected and any network shares they've used. It's possible to run text searches of any emails found on a system, from within the program. And you can even see what's inside a computer's memory at the moment, perhaps helping you to recover user names, passwords or other information that wouldn't normally be visible.

But OSForensics has many other useful applications.

There's an Undelete tool, for instance, that you can use to recover apparently lost files.

The clever Mismatch File Search option will scan your hard drive, checking file contents and alerting you when they don't match the extension (a .EXE file has been renamed as a .JPG, say). This could let you know if malware (or maybe another user of your PC) is trying to hide particular files.

There's support for Hash Matching, a technique that helps you quickly identify changed Windows, Microsoft Office or other files, again useful if you're looking for malware.

And if you install OSForensics to a USB flash drive then you can take the program anywhere, and use it on PCs without leaving any significant trace.

What's new in v7? See the changelog for more info.

Verdict:

OSForensics is a powerful, professional forensics tool. The price means it really isn't for regular users, and the trial has restrictions, but if you need to understand how someone's been using a PC it could still be very helpful.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
