Nirsoft has a great history of making utilities, these are free and very useful. Just today, Nirsoft released a new one that, as he says he “created this utility within a few days without planning to create it before”. I like it!

Today, I’m going to look at a small utility that acts simply as a Print Manager or a Print Previewer. This utility gives you the ability to print ONLY the pages you need or want to print and remove the ones you don’t need.

I was intrigued to find that a new version of Windows PE had been released and it was labeled as 2.0 or “the Vista version” if you will. One of the biggest enhancements that I could see was the hot plugging of USB devices… so I went looking for it..
