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.

Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.1 Updated

Checker on 2 Aug 2014
  • 9MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by jack

Pazera Free Audio Extractor takes the audio from most major video files without loss of sound quality or converts them to a variety of common audio formats. The program can also behave as a simple conversion tool from one audio format to another (e.g. AAC to MP3).

Note: By default, the program will extract/convert to MP3. Select "Try extract original audio stream" to avoid re-encoding. This is faster, but may result in a format some devices can't read. Additionally, the program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can easily customize audio encoding parameters with output parameters.

Some supported formats include (audio) MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, OGG, WAV; (video) AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, VOB, MKV, WebM, and OGV.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1 Updated

Checker on 29 Aug 2014

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from many types of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages such as Wise and Inno Setup etc. Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: There are restrictions on the included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE. These files can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software and will only disable extraction of a small number of file types. See website for more information.

It's a bit OTT calling this an universal extractor, as many EXE files I try to extract with it, leads to error messages that the so-scalled universal extractor can't extract them.
