free tools

The joeware utilities... Saving administrators around the world time and frustration for over twelve years...

All joeware utilities have a very simple warranty which you can find here.

Please feel free to use these tools as you like, if you do something cool with them, let me know, I like hearing what things people find to do with them.

For each utility I try to keep a current list of what platforms it will or won't work on. The mapping for the symbols are + for runs, - for doesn't run, and † for it runs but not perfectly. The last is specific to Windows Server 2008 and is due to the granular password policy. If the granular password policy is not being used, you will have no issues. If you are using the granular policy the results will be incorrect.

Note about digests.
