Avira Antivir is no doubt one of the top antivirus software that exist these days. But, apparently this antivirus also has the same uninstallation problem that Kaspersky, NOD32, Norton and AVG antivirus suffer from. You cannot expect to be able to completely uninstall Antivir simply using the Add/Remove program, the built-in uninstaller tool that Windows provides. If you find that you cannot uninstall Avira Antivir completely, then one of these free tools should be able to help you no matter which version you’re using. More »
There are certain circumstances that you might want to close all the opened folders, files and running applications. For example, installing a new software. I myself never close any when installing and find no problem at all so far even though I install/uninstall new software almost every day, but this freeware surely useful for you who prefers to be more careful. Or, perhaps you have found yourself have to suddenly close all the opened windows when something urgent needs to be done immediately.
Close & open multiple windows at once
What is good from this freeware isn’t only its ability to close multiple windows, but also how it closes the windows and then restore them back to their last positions. Let’s say you have Image to PDF Converter, CCleaner, AutoDelete and Windows explorer being open. If you close these opened windows with SmartClose, don’t forget to configure it first to take a quick system snapshot which then should be saved as a file. All selected windows will be closed once you hit the OK button.
After that, you can easily restore the windows in the positions just like before you close them.
SmarClose is one of the free applications that I put under my favorite freeware collection. Too bad that it is no longer updated anymore since March 9, 2005. Still, it works very well in closing and opening multiple windows at once. It works under Windows XP, 98, NT 4, 95.
