I know it's Spanish, but it's very intuitive! :)

It's portable, but I'd like a second opinion on this version (saves settings in its own folder, but modifies the registry if you use some modules that are supposed to do just that, like the registry cleaner).

Wow. An absolute ton of basic tools and capabilities in only 10 megs of system space: that's hard to beat. However, I can't really find anything that is completely unique and or something that's not already here and better on PFW. I can't seem to find any reviews that suggest, for example, that their system optimizer is one of the best. Still, this would be a good introduction to portable software and its nice to have some of these applications available as a backup in case another program gets corrupted or something.

Other notes:

* The Privacy Cleaner tries to delete "read emails." Its fine that this option is available but it should not be enabled by default. I never, never, never want to delete all my read email unless its a throwaway account.
* The registry backup-restore system seems simple and straightforward. Also seems to manage system restore points (I don't use this feature and didn't want to enable it for a full test.)
* The System Optimization tool was great -- put an easy-to-understand face on system services.

I added Argente - Registry Cleaner to the database.
If it's useful for you, vote @ http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2351.

Administrator rights is listed as a requirement, although I still think is a questionable issue.

Registry cleaners, such as alcoholic beverages, must be consumed with caution and moderation.
That said, I consider this utility as one of the most reliable, between both free and commercial software.

Tested: Portable

It does add some fonts to the %TEMP% folder on Windows XP, Segoe UI and Arial_1 to be exact. No idea why they can't use the default Windows fonts?
Added 179 Applications: Portable

The 2.0 alpha version is out. Probably don't want to update the entry yet, but just glad to see this.
