FreeMake Video Converter & Youtube downloader
This is a fantastic piece of free software that will convert any file format to any other. Very well laid out with one click options to set video coding for Phones, ipads, media players and games condoles and even dvd formats.
This software will backup your video dvds to players or disc's, so be careful with copyrights as this type of software could land you in trouble if you go beyond what you own on disc.
The bit i like is the youtube downloading, you just copy the page URL on the browser and then click the 'Paste URL' button and its in. Next you just click the button across bottom that relate to what format you want the video in.
You can preview each video before conversion and make small edits, like start and end frame. You have to download the youtube videos first before you can do this, you just load them in again from the hard drive.
You can also convert music files to any format. I've loaded up 17 files for conversion and this software had no issues with running through them all. Preview is a bit sketchy with music files, but then freemake does visualization effects in play and it doesn't do it very well.
Everything else works just fine. Download site

This free tool will unlock a locked file or folder and also kill any process using it.
Each file or folder targeted is scanned and all services, programs and processes using the target are listed for each file or folder.
This makes the tool very effective at giving you the options to obtain access to an item without crashing something else. Download site
