WinPrefetchView is a small utility that reads the Prefetch files stored in your system and display the information stored in them. A Prefetch file contains information about the files loaded every time you launch an application. It is created by Windows and is used for optimizing the loading time of the application in the next time that you run it. By looking in these files, you can learn which files every application is using, and which files are loaded on Windows boot.

Like everything else that Nir Sofer writes, it's great. No fancy interface, no install/uninstall, no cluttering of the registry, etc., etc. It simply does what it says it will do. Period.

Why not just C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch

I will attempt to post on application website but ...
"Always start minimized (To Tray)" option does not work.

I have not seen changes occur to the configuration file (AutoHideDesktopIcons.ini) for this setting.

I will also ask about command line option to start minimized.

donald on 2011-09-22 00:45

Please note the immediate response of the developer.

This is a very nice and handy piece of software from a very prolific developer.

I have only seen first rate software from this developer.

Neat little app. Uses around 1.0 - 1.5MB RAM. GUI is a little ugly like all SoftwareOK apps, but you'll probably want to start this in the system tray and forget it! :)

POP Peeper v4.0.1 Updated

Checker on 19 Jul 2015
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by falrob

POP Peeper is an email notifier that alerts you when you have new email on any of your POP3, Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, Mail.com, MyWay, Excite, Lycos.com, or RediffMail accounts. You can also send emails using your SMTP server or through your webmail account directly from POP Peeper.

To enable secure connections, see forum instructions.

How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Delete Pro and Themes folders, PPconvert.exe and PpHelper.exe
  3. Launch POPPeeper.exe
What's new?
  • Pro (AntiJunk): New option to ignore/skip AntiJunk for certain accounts (access under Account/Advanced); this is particularly useful if you're accessing spam folders and/or using the "hide from *all accounts*" option.
  • Pro (AntiJunk): "Delete Junk" action has been enhanced: you can now assign an additional action (e.g. minimize PP) and has a "don't prompt again" setting.
  • Pro (AntiJunk): When multiple filters (e.g. Rule) apply a different user flag, the one with the higest precedence will be used; previously, it would always use the first user flag applied which prevented a Rule to apply a user flag if the sender was in your white list (friend user flag). "Precedence" is calculated by the display order.
  • Error log window now supports clickable links (error messages from server may contain links).
  • If the new version prompt appears and you select "don't ask again" it only applies to that version; if another new version is subsequently released, you will receive the update notification.
  • Fix: Potential crash involving IMAP/IDLE and servers that don't provide a reliable connection.
  • Fix: SendMail: Certain locales couldn't parse standard timestamp and would prevent sending messages due to mis-calculated age.
  • Fix: Pro activation window may not appear when required.
  • Fix: Issues with VersionCheck preventing updates (including WebMail) from working correctly.
  • Fix: Log window will save to file immediately if enable "save changes" (instead of memory only).
  • Fix: Issues with High-contrast themes.

4.0.1 is out!!

"POP Peeper IS an email notifier" but is categorised under "Internet - Email Clients (4)" ("email clients as a supplementary function") with EssentialPIM, SeaMonkey and Opera Presto.
Surely, POP Peeper would be better categorised under "Internet - Email Clients (11)" ("email clients as a primary function") with nPOPuk, PopMan, etc.
