WinLogOnView analyses the Windows security event log and detects the date/time that users logged on and logged off. For every log on/log off, the logon ID, user name, domain, computer, logon time, logoff time, duration and network address are all shown.

smaragdus: My understanding is that they include all the popular plugins inside the distro. This is because plugin fragmentation and version issues were part of the reason for the Miranda NG code fork.

I really didn't like not being able to hit "enter" and have the message send. You can configure this behavior under options - Message sessions - General tab - Sending messages - checkbox "Send message on 'Enter'"

If that seems like a lot to go through to configure something fairly basic, that's kind of how this client works: a little confusing with a trade-off of intense customization.

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

What perplexes me about this program is its clandestine development. If one opens its history page:
http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~gakana/tablacus/history/
one will see that "Fix minor bugs" & "Minor changes" prevail but there are no details whatsoever about them.

xor on 2016-09-26 20:13

Usage of Tablacus suits me better than Q-Dir, but it started to suffer that typical 98% CPU wacko thing that chased me away, Q-Dir also continues to be buggy since XP up to Win10 at refreshing the folders tree after deletion, renaming, etc (some times). I'm started to get suited with Double commander although still missing Drag-Select.

ripu on 2016-10-14 14:42

@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

QuickWayToFolders provides quick and easy access to a folder on your computer via a taskbar icon. The program window disappears when you click outside the window. Display modes include:

  • Menu: Display folder content in a menu
  • Multiple Folders Menu: Display multiple folders content in a single menu (note that you must manually add them or nothing will appear when you click the icon)
In the "Menu" and "Multiple Folders Menu" settings, the program can act like a Program Launcher. Multiple instances of the program can be run with customizable icons and each entry is added to the taskbar.

To use the program as a root folder of a portable folder choose Options - Local path, then use a forward slash: "\". To set an image as a background place it in the application folder and set path as "image name.jpg" etc.

(and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

One does not need the BAT file ("ClipAngelPortable.bat") to start ClipAngel in portable mode, just run the EXE with this parameter- "ClipAngel.exe /p".

The name of the program is not Clip Angel but ClipAngel as it can be seen in program's main window and in "About" window.

Program's icon does not imply an angel but an alien.

I agree, for me CyberShredder is a better option.

I use shredder.exe. It is less than 150kb and fast. As I work, I can move files to be deleted into a 'new folder', planted anywhere. When I am done, shredder.exe takes the 'new folder', and seconds later, it is gone. Loading individual files works fine, too.

DSynchronize lets you copy, move, or synchronize folders on your computer or over a network. The program can sync in both directions, making both folders up-to-date with the latest data, do realtime sync where any changes copied to destination and even verify it's transfers. The program can schedule operations, add timestamps to the destination folder and keep multiple backups (iterations).

If in use, the program can even eject a USB device when an operation is complete.

NOTE: By default the program does not send deleted files to the Recycle Bin, but are instead deleted outright. Use caution in initial sync tests with sensitive data.

Maybe I misunderstood "synchronize"? If I have a and a , I want the destination folder/tree to mirror the source. This doesn't do that.
I thought I'd use this to maintain a second copy of my digital music collection, but when I did a bunch of tagging and renaming, and use this, the destination files were not renamed. I don't expect a utility to detect if the content has changed -- I just wanted (and want going forward) my "backup" to be exactly like the original -- with extra files and folders gone, and new ones copied. This requires a "utility" because much of the change to the source involves cleaning up filenames, so drag-n-drop produces two (or more) "copies" of the same songs in the backup.

Sinchu on 2018-10-30 05:23

Wrote to creator

BIG problem I tested your program today & it deleted a number of folders. They did not go to the recycle bin? Just GONE

There were 20 folders on the drive. Your program deleted all the folders that began with ## example D:\## Classical

None of the others were changed.

All I tried was copy one tiny folder to another.

Your program deleted 280 Gig's

Is there anything I can do ? Or just use UNDELETE software..

NOT impressed

his reply

If you don't select "Use Recycle Bin" the program deletes directly files.

DSynchronize is designed for Power Users, if you select some options without know their effect, can produce big damages.

#2

DSynchronize has been downloaded 66335 times on last two months. You are the only user that have reported these problems, so I think that the cause of these troubles it's an configuration error not a program error.

VERY SCARY program just deletes what it wants like another post above. So I am not the ONLY ONE

webfork on 2018-11-03 12:13

Sinchu: Emphasizing that I've used Dsyncronize for years and it's definitely my go-to sync program, I acknowledge any program that deletes files should probably send them by default to the recycle bin. I've added something to the entry.

Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

jcaiken on 2018-10-17 15:39

Opera is built on Chromium, the open-source version of Chrome, and as well as having its own extensions is compatible with most Chrome extensions (but not Chrome Applications).
The reference to the older version of Opera (v12) should also identify that it also lacks many of the modern features that are only available in the newer versions, e.g. Chrome compatibility, built in ad-blocker and free VPN, etc.

There's really no way to make sure we're highlighting all the tech, features, and difference from other applications, but you're right that the ad-bocking by default is notable so I'll add that in.

Also, should note that the included "VPN" is really just a proxy.

FYI I logged in to post this

The "p" in the rufus executible name makes it portable; otherwise, it writes to reg.
For example:

rufus-2.12p.exe is portable
rufus-2.12.exe is not.

Was driving me insane finding reg keys.. :)

Can't you disable it saving temporary files in the options?

opsimathic on 2017-08-12 08:51

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

The corruption of QuickImageComment archives happen when they are downloaded by Free Download Manager and some other download managers. It seems that the problem is caused by Phoca Download (http://www.phoca.cz/phocadownload) the official web-site uses. In order to get the file right please download it via a browser.

Belga on 2017-09-11 16:56

That's the best solution.
FYI, developer gives this answer related to keeping the enlargement of the window after reboot :
"I guess when the system shutdown, OS didn't give XVA enough time to save configuration files, so the windows size don't save correct, and I would optimize it in the next version.
You can use the temporary plan as follows:
1. Adjust the window size.
2. manually exit.
3. restart XVA."

  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Nov 2018

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information as compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

  • X-Iron (idem)

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

It allows you to add a watermarks, filter source files, rename/convert images, resize/rotate, automatically apply color corrections and more. An instant preview gives you a look at effects before executing. Additionally, the program supports regular expressions for filtering files to be processed and for the renaming of files. A wizard can categorize files based on metadata (EXIF or IPTC tags).

While the editor program (SunlitGreen Photo Editor) is separate from the batch program, it's included in the application folder or can be launched from within BatchBlitz.

NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

Additional cleaner rules can be using an unofficial set of community-developed set. It should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.

Alternatively, ccPortable is also available.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=forum&id=0653 ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

Well, actually, the files from C++ runtime are really, there. Your missing DLLs api-ms-win-crt-runtime-* are indirect system dependencies which are not directly referenced by Textilosaurus binary, it seems these files can be installed with installing this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2999226/update-for-universal-c-runtime-in-windows

So it seems that your operating system is not fully up-to-date. These DLLs cannot be re-distributed with textilosaurus.exe, the only way for me could be to package runtime installers into Textilosaurus installer, but that is not really good because some users install portable Textilosaurus from zip package instead, thus, this is not a solution for them.

What do you think? I thought I could use different toolchain (mingw) to build the app for windows, but unfortunately, it is only available for x86 platform which is bad, since I prefer to deploy x64 binaries.

zorro on 2018-01-08 05:40

Well, you're right - my system is not up to date and I am not able to install the update, because my Win 8.1 is one of those that refused to install the big ("8.2") update. No problem, for most other users Textilosaurus will work fine.

NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.

It is stealthy unless you change any of the options. That will leave C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\MiTeC\Task Manager DeLuxe\TMX64.ini

The homepage claims "...lightweight portable package with many more enhancements. It needs no installation and leaves no tracks in system so it can be easily used as portable application everywhere. ", which is incorrect.

Happy.Camper2 on 2017-11-28 01:03

Hi PortableFreewarers,
Hope everyone had a nice holiday:)

So, at the authors website, Vista is not listed in requirements=>
https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/complete-internet-repair

I downloaded v5.0.0.3758 just for curiosity and the change.txt has Vista listed as compatible.
Sure enough, this version DOES work on Windows Vista.

Guess I'll send a message to the Rizonesoft Team about the incorrect info on their site.

Not keeping things up-to-date surely does waste people's
time and also prevents folks from downloading the product if their OS isn't listed as a requirement.

Long live organized people :)
Take care all!

When I run Avast anti-virus on this programme it tells me that it contains a Trojan Horse called Win32:Spyware-gen [Trj].
Can anyone confirm that this is correct? If so, perhaps it shouldn't be on the site. (ps... thanks Andrew - your site is my top site after BBC !)
