useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.

Defraggler v2.18.945

Checker on 22 Apr 2014
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by atao.m

Defraggler improves drive performance by organizing data at a file system level. Since files over time spread out over a drive, occasional "defragmentation" can help reduce drive seek time. Uniquely, Defraggler can function at a file or folder-level to help clean up specific areas, or the whole disk. The program will also list fragmented files and their locations.

The package includes both 32-bit and a 64-bit versions, as well as a command line program. This tool is not recommended for SSD drives or other flash-based media.

@Kea - Did you check 'Do real clean (simulation otherwise)' lower left corner?

Kea on 2012-11-18 19:08

Yes, I used "Do real clean"...

Midas on 2012-11-19 10:17

Then maybe USBOblivion didn't run with the required privileges: try right click and "Run as administrator"...

@ mukhi - Could your AV or FW program be blocking the download or the download site? Have you been able to download other files with no issue?

DzejPy on 2014-03-10 22:00

Sometimes show advertisement: http://www.imghosting.cz/images/95SoftPerfectNetScan.jpg

webfork on 2014-03-17 01:35

DzejPy: verified. However, if you just click "Ok got it" in that image, it goes away and doesn't come back. Think we can let the adware notice slide for the moment.
