I can confirm that, webfork. Been trying to promote Qupzilla to backup browser, but have had some rather catastrophic crashes (BSOD on XP Pro SP3) with the latest versions... :(

Safari and Chrome use the QT framework?

carbonize: no, I wrote that in wrong. Revising.

Spews v1.0.6

Checker on 24 May 2015
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Jan 2015
  • Suggested by Checker

Spews (Skwire's Process Excluding Wallpaper Switcher) is designed to automatically switch your wallpapers on a configurable schedule. You can add image folders, choose wallpaper options, and check/uncheck the images paths as needed; only checked paths will be scanned for images.

The program will automatically suspend wallpaper switching if it detects any process names you configure in the Exclusions section. This can be beneficial, for instance, when running games that will be disrupted if the wallpaper is changed.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Spews.exe.

  • Added a "previous wallpaper" function and corresponding customizable hotkey.

@checker: OK. IMHO: "Stealth" apps should clean up their temp files for being titled "stealth", this has nothing to do with leaving traces or hiding activities. Even more, "Portable" apps should clean up their temp files, what the "portable" apps I use, do. This "portable" app should not clean up, but it could.

Ganamyde on 2014-01-17 15:41

You can easily clean up your temp left over, here is what I use...
run, CMD /C CD /D "%a_temp%" & PING -n 1 -w 2000 & RMDIR /S /Q "%script_tempFolder%",,hide useErrorLevel

The word "Stealth" came into use recently in reference to the "stealth" airplanes the United States government started to use back in the 80's. As for these "stealth" airplanes they are in fact not invisible, what they show is a very small imprint in hopes to fool a radar operator into thinking that what they see is nothing to worry about. I suppose the fact of the matter is that there is no magic way to keep anything totally invisible on a computer. I for one can live with this free software calling itself "stealth" cuz that's what it looks like to me... Just sayin :) Thank you to the person for their hard work in bring me this free "stealth" software that does what it says.

MultiHasher v2.7.1

webfork on 21 May 2015
  • 7MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Jan 2015
  • Suggested by guinness

MultiHasher is a drag-and-drop tool for creating and checking file hashes, useful for checking data integrity. The program will check files, folders, and even text using a variety of methods with both pause and cancel options for large operations. The program can then compare digests to detect changes as well as query the result to the VirusTotal database. A search tool lets you quickly track down both files or specific hashes from long lists.

A recursive checking option (entire directory trees) is available in the options menu. The program can also use existing, standard hash files such as MHX, SFV, MD5Sum, etc. to check integrity.

Supports 64-bit operating systems and available algorithms include from fastest to most secure: CRC32, MD5, RIPEMD-160, SHA 1, 256, 384, and 512. Can include one, some, or all algorithms available in testing.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice

If you use category All Files it will make a .json file

bzl333 on 2014-04-04 19:53

it opens a browser for the VT results :(

PeStudio shows the results in its own GUI.

would be nice to have program like this that you enter a folder or partition of say all your portable apps and this program works slowly in the background at like 5% of CPU and checks all hashes against VT, option to upload those unknown, then stores to a small database and gives the option to recheck every so often against the hashes stored, etc. And option to select filetypes that dont need to be scanned. Would be a good security program.

webfork on 2015-05-17 03:27

I've been using this program a lot for the MD5/SHA1 and VirusTotal features for postings here on PFW. That said, I still prefer RapidCRC Unicode for hashing / checking lots of files.

Why all the fuss over RAR? The biggest problem is getting RAR to ZIP so it's compatible to more people in the world, not less. 1980 called, they want their compressor back.

Midas on 2014-05-25 19:18

The changelog posted is for ArcConvert v0.66, plus there now seems to be a 64 bits version linked at the bottom of the Sourceforge page ("Update for 64bit OS").

Note also that although WinRAR gives you a 30 day trial, as the meme goes, it will never end...


webfork on 2014-05-30 23:25

DavidRoper: even among very technical people, I can't seem to get anyone to use anything but ZIP. The dream of getting people to use one of a number of radically better compression formats has been going on for over a decade now and at this stage just seems like a lost cause.

Interesting, effective, but slow.

An option to limit folder recursion might help (you can say %PrettyRunDrive%\portableapps -- for instance -- but the scan subfolders option is going to make PrettyRun go to a lot of unhelpful places, whereas if you could restrict it to just one subfolder down, it might be faster.

The MP3 tag search is also quite slow.

It's not the most intuitive to set up, either.

FindAndRunRobot (from has a similar philosophy to this but is much, much faster (despite also taking a similarly non-indexed approach) and has a lot more functionality, too.
