USB Oblivion v1.11.6.0

billon on 8 Oct 2017
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

USB Oblivion erases all traces of USB-connected drives and CD-ROMs from the registry. Since Windows keeps a record of all devices attached, this is useful both for privacy and for users who prefer "stealth" software.

Writes settings to: None
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? No. Creates setupapi.app.log in Windows\inf during run but then removes it.
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch USBOblivion32.exe or USBOblivion64.exe if using a 64-bit OS.

Is the website down, of there is no more links to the original project?

@rmarier: the "Website" link above works for me; just in case you still can't access the main site, you may want to try http://sourceforge.net/projects/usboblivion/ ...

DriveCleanup v1.5.0

billon on 13 Jul 2017
  • 97KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Jul 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types. Both are not removed by similar programs on the site and take up space on the registry, eventually slow down a computer over time.

To preview program actions, start with argument -T (test mode).

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Now this great little utility saves it's settings in the local folder making it totally portable. THANK YOU, Nir !

MiDoJo on 2008-01-23 13:43

1.71 works for ie7 (even though nirsoft does not claim it) it also works for vista (with the caveat that you cannot get rid of the signature warning even if you unblock in the file properties) 1.70 Works with Vista/ie7/portably but does write some items to registry

Ricochet v1.1.4 New

webfork on 25 Feb 2018
  • 52MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Nov 2016
  • Suggested by smaragdus

Ricochet is a simple, text-only instant messenger built for security and anonymity. The program uses the Tor network hidden services feature to hide one's identity and connections are encrypted end-to-end. The program intentionally does not save chat history.

Note that unlike most IM tools you do not need to register a username, instead generating a unique address (e.g. "ricochet:rs7ce36jsj24ogfw"). Other Ricochet users can use this address to connect with you. These addresses can be generated and discarded as needed.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac and Linux.

Why this oldtimer suddently show up ?

Checker on 2015-09-07 18:32

@Wolfghost: I think it's because smaragdus became R2.
So it's: Andrew Lee R5 + Toxteth O'Grady R3 + smaragdus R2 = 10 points
