WebBrowserPassView v1.56 Updated

Checker on 19 Sep 2014

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (4.0 - 10.0), all versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera and SeaMonkey. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Could someone confirm deer's note and I'll add it to the program description?

Confirm it !!

WinContig v1.35.03 Updated

webfork on 12 Oct 2014

WinContig is an easy-to-use file defragmentation program that allows defrag of parts of the drive. This is useful for squeezing extra performance out of important or frequently used files or programs without wasting time and energy cleaning up the rest of the drive.

Note that you should only use this on magnetic (Flash) disks. Flash-based drives (SSDs and thumb drives) don't benefit from defragmentation and such maintenance tools can reduce the life of the drive.

The program engine is based on the standard Microsoft defragmentation API and allows you to group files into profiles, accepting a number of available command-line switches for additional control.

The recent and current version (v1) have been very good on my Windows XP SP3 system. I went back to WinContig because for some reason the recent version of Defraggler is really slower than before on my computer. I like Defraggler too, but this newer version of WinContig is extremely fast and I like the built in system check and deleting of temporary files. I like defraggler's interface better, but they are both excellent programs. The wonderful thing about freeware is we can use both! Thanks to the WinContig creator(s) for making another excellent fuss-free program. The exclusion list is also really handy.

aw, i just ran v1 and it crashed on my XP SP3 system. So I guess they don't have all the bugs worked out yet. To bad.

portafreeuser on 2012-02-09 05:28

OK, I ran a newer version on my XP SP3 system and it worked just fine. Thanks for a nice easy defrag program with some nice display information and command line features. I actually like how the pre-version 1 versions looked better (less cluttered), but at least this works and doesn't crash and is portable and simple.

Checker on 4 Oct 2014
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by USB_Kx

Shutter lets you perform an action when a user-specified event occurs. The event could be timer countdown, a certain time trigger, low CPU usage, user inactive, low battery etc. The action could be shutdown, reboot, logoff, lock workstation, sleep, hibernate etc. It is also able to play a custom sound and/or run a program of your choice, in addition to displaying a user-configurable message. A web interface is also available that permits remote execution of one of a list of actions.

Note: The developer has added limitations in recent "Lite" versions of his software. Shutter is limited to 5 presets, events, and actions.

  • "File Size Limit" event renamed to "File Size".
  • "File Size" event can be triggered when file no longer exists.
  • "File Size" event checks file every second instead of 5 seconds.
  • Use "MS Shell Dlg 2" font instead of "MS Shell Dlg" on Windows 2000 and later versions; This system font substitute maps to "Tahoma" which better handles ambiguity between letter "I" and digit "1".

Works great. I find this very useful for uploading videos online. It can take hours for them to complete, so I usually do it overnight. However, I want the computer to shut off after they finish uploading. This program did the trick!

Shutter version 3.3 is no longer FreeWare for non-commercial use, it is now CrippleWare- Shutter Lite.

Recently, I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Update 1 and had trouble waking up the computer from sleep.

I tried various solutions, but ended up turning off automatic sleep in Windows and using Shutter to Sleep after X amount of time is inactive. Now, I'm able to wake the com up. I understand this is a workaround, but this ended up working for me.

TeraCopy v2.3 Updated

Checker on 28 Jul 2014
  • 936KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AntBond

TeraCopy lets you copy/move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress.

"Let's say I forget this app forever."

Good. Can you forget this Website too?

Checker on 2014-07-26 13:41

@ finiderire: The word 'extract' at the 'How to extract:' is a link to an application called 'Universal Extractor'.
Use this to extract the installer file and follow the rest of the 'How to extract' instructions.

webfork on 2014-07-27 19:55

finiderire: "why not providing the program as a Zip file already "prepared" ?"

We are just listing this; we didn't develop it. Feel free to contact the developer at the "website" link and ask. The method that we have is a trick that enables portability on a great many terrific apps. Please see the site FAQ.
