CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool.

The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers, and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool, and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

An unofficial set of community developed cleaning rules can be found here however it should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.

  • 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.

I don't know whether Rufus is portable or not but I am certain that 'rufus-X.X.exe' and 'rufus-X.Xp.exe' are exactly the same. By the way, there is a new version- Rufus 2.3.709.
