Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Oops, forgot to mention a thing or two:

Requires admin privileges. Creates setupapi.app.log in Windows\INF during run but then removes it.

Tested: Portable

Nice find. I ran DriveCleanup and then USB Oblivion and it still removed some entries.
Translated from Russian using Google Translate:
The utility supports the "quiet" mode using command line parameters:
-enable - Operating treatment, or simulation;
-auto - Automatic start (does not affect the mode of treatment);
-nosave - Cancel conservation. reg-file;
-? - Issuance of certificate.
Tested: Portable << For assurance :mrgreen:

I ran both in test mode and then compared the results. I like DriveCleanup's selective cleaning feature and Oblivion's backup feature.

As donald asked if I could vote for the entry, so I wanted to test again to make sure nothing had changed.
