I used to publish small freeware Win32 applications and system tools under the name ST-WARE Softworks. Because the original site is now defunct, I decided to put up a mirror for all of them here. Feel free to share – however since I have released them quite a long time ago, no additional support is provided. Please update your links or bookmarks.
Note: usage is at your own risk – I take no responsibility over any incidental damages on your machine.
Some of these utilities might trigger a false alarm in certain antivirus software, this is caused by internal compression routines which pose no real malware threat!
CMOS De-Animator v2 & 1.0
Update: new version available here
A service utility to manipulate with your system’s CMOS RAM. Version v2.1 (11th Aug 2011) runs straight under any 32 or 64 bit Windows operating system (inarguably, world’s first such application to do so!). To work properly, administrator privileges might be required. Take care with laptops – their BIOS password, if set, is usually stored in an EEPROM outside CMOS and in such cases, attempting to clear the CMOS can cause your BIOS to lock itself up.

Exercise caution with this one – powers your computer down almost immediately upon execution.
