Download link (http://www.peazip.org/peazip-portable.html) raises a 404 "not found" error. Link instead just to http://www.peazip.org/ or to http://peazip.sourceforge.net/peazip-portable.html.

Advanced Renamer is stealth but the exiftool.exe within is not, it leaves behind a 19MB folder: AppData\Local\Temp\par-username\cache-exiftool-10.04.

Even if terminated properly, the folder stays.

WakeMeOnLan v1.76 Updated

billon on 20 Apr 2016
  • 346KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Apr 2016
  • Suggested by Checker

WakeMeOnLan allows you to easily turn on one or more computers remotely by sending Wake-on-LAN (WOL) packet over the network. This will return machines from a standby or turned-off state, useful for administrators or to save electricity until resources are needed. WakeMeOnLan also allows you to scan your network and collect the MAC addresses of all online computers. This information can be exported to a file.

Additionally, an available command-line interface can turn on a computer using a computer name, IP address, or the MAC address of the remote network card.

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WakeMeOnLan.exe.
What's new?
  • The default of 'Send The Wake-on-LAN Packet To...' option is now 'Broadcast Address According to IP Address' instead of 'Broadcast Address 255.255.255.255'. This change is made because on some Windows 10/8 systems, the 'Broadcast Address 255.255.255.255' option doesn't work.

LastActivityView collects information from various sources on a running system and displays a log of actions made by the user and events that occurred on the machine. Events include running .exe files, any open/save dialog-boxes, opening file/folder from Explorer or other software, software installation, system shutdown/start, application or system crash, network connection/disconnection and more.

Neat application. Its worth noting that the 'Run .EXE file' items won't show up if you've disabled prefetch on your O/S, which is a common optimization for SSD drives.

Allen on 2015-03-04 14:24

I like this tool as it shows "All" activity that has taken place on ones computer. It will show every folder that has been opened, every .exe file that was used, every encryption tool that has been used. Kind of scary? I have yet to find a way to delete these items from a windows 7 system. Ccleaner and almost every other privacy tool have been tried. I have even read the topics from NirSoft about this.
Anyone here know of a solution to clearthe Activity view?

Allen on 2015-03-06 21:02

I found the way to remove these findings: First delete windows Prefetch entries "C:\Windows\Prefetch" this will delete all the .exe files in LastActivityView. Next Run RegSeeker2.5.7 and select privacy Key on the left side of the menu, and at the bottom select "Clean stream MRU/streams Keys". That's all there is to it.

You can download RegSeeker2.5.7 on the Portable Freeware website

Process Hacker v2.39 Updated

billon on 29 Mar 2016

Process Hacker is a feature-packed tool for manipulating processes and services on your computer. Includes a simple, customized tree view, detailed performance graphs, list of network connections, comprehensive process list (including hidden), full control over processes, rootkit termination, and DLL controls.

Alternatively, Process Hacker Portable is stealth.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Settings location is specified by passing the -settings parameter to Process Hacker, together with the full path to the settings file.
Stealth: ? No. To make stealth:
  1. Delete/rename kprocesshacker.sys before launch or start the program with -nokph argument. Note that this will disable some advanced features
  2. Delete/rename plugins\UserNotes.dll before launch. The UserNotes plugin saves its settings in %APPDATA%\Process Hacker 2\usernotesdb.xml
  3. Although there is no automatic update checker, avoid this option in the Help menu as it will leave a trace in the Internet Explorer browser cache
License: GPLv3
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Create an empty text file named ProcessHacker.exe.settings.xml in the x86 subfolder for 32-bit or x64 for 64-bit
  3. Launch ProcessHacker.exe

It's a great app, I personally prefer it over Process Explorer.
