IMPORTANT: Antivirus false positives.
Lately we have been inundated with emails warning about TinyOffice containing virus and trojan activity, flagged by a popular antivirus site, virustotal.com. The false positives seem to be all generated by one of the programs bundled in TinyOffice — HFS file server.
The reports from this site are 100% false positives. All of the assertions that are made by various file scanners offer vague claims of malware, and none of them are even in consensus as to a specific infection! The program in TinyOffice which is in question, HFS, is also open source, so one can examine its code and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is in fact no malware of any kind in it! (It is likely the best single reason for using open source software when one can)
This is an ongoing problem that plagues many legitimate software developers, and is due to the irresponsibility of the large corporate antivirus industry itself, who profit largely on fear and disinfo – at the expense of legitimate software developers. Even Microsoft’s antivirus had a false positive for Gmail!
It is very difficult, if not impossible, for someone to prove the non-existence of something. I can assure you, I detest malware and spyware as much as any of you.
Spread32 is fully compatible with Microsoft Excel! It is essentially a mini-Excel with all of the basic features that you would expect in a competent spreadsheet program. Run macros, draw objects, generate charts, calculate functions and formulas, its all here. And it reads and writes xls, csv, text, and pxl formats. This version includes the last freeware version…
Ted Notepad is what Windows notepad should be: a small but robust text editor with multilevel undo/redo, cliptexts, case conversion tools, text tools, Unicode compatible, and much more. The light-weight portable application fits on USB drive and loads instantly with no installation required. TED Notepad is designed especially for daily writing of notes, lists, scripts and html/php files.
NPopUK is a full featured email client (a far improved version of the brilliant nPOP itself), which as it is, can almost replace MS Outlook Express. It supports authentication, address book, multiple POP accounts and much more!
PixaMSN is a tiny standalone MSN Messenger clone with only basic features. It’s a small executable which requires no installation and saves absolutely nothing to hard disk or registry. Perfect for carrying on a floppy or an USB drive!
MemPad is a tree-style outliner software that keeps your notes in text pages with a structured index in the left pane. The pages are stored in one single file. Page size and index nesting are not limited. MemPad offers standard editing functions including cut, copy, paste, undo, date/time insert, drag&drop, and supports Web links as well as network and local file or folder links (full path not required) and internal page links.
HFS is a HTTP File Server to send and receive files. Just select the files you want to share to a list, create user accounts for those you want to have access to the files, and you are set. You don’t even have to create a web page listing the files available, HFS does that automatically.
You get all of these, plus a text encryption program, a secure file shredder, a password revealer, and last but not least, a tiny vector editor.
All of the applications are freeware, however each of them have their own individual licenses, and belong to their respective authors. If you have any support queries or need more detailed information, please refer to the individual “readme” files in each application’s directory. If you like these applications – please do not hesitate to offer support, donation, etc to the respective authors of these programs, who have offered them, unselfishly as free software. There is no way that a company like MS, for example, could offer applications like these at any price.
