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.

Wow, what a great tool - very explicit.
Is it stealth?

well, it saves all its config in HKLM\Software\SIV but it creates it on the first run so its safe to remove

it also adds to the ntuser.dat.LOG file.

This can probably be updated with the portable command line option that's visible on the latest updates:
Added support for SIVDEF.ini which can be used to provide defaults for configuration parameters that are not already present in the registry. By default SIV will save these defaults to the registry unless -NOSIVREG is selected. Note that when SIV is run from a DVD/CD or Removable Drive (USB Flash Drive) -NOSIVREG is the default.
I've checked the registry when using the -NOSIVREG option, and nothing was written. The .INI file seems optional, and I don't see anything written to one if it is created as a blank file. I don't see one in %appdata% or %localappdata% either, so maybe it forgets the settings. It's also entirely possible it wrote them somewhere I didn't look.
