Not stealth anymore, creates 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder.

So in the 7.5.1 changelog it says it fixed the above 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder bug, but I'm still getting them, can anyone else confirm?

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.

freakazoid on 2014-04-24 17:07

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.

The menu system is a little odd but it's got a lot of cool functionality and tweaks for a small zoom program.

NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. 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.

Additional cleaner rules can be using an unofficial set of community-developed set. 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.

Alternatively, ccPortable is also available.

The file vlcrc in the 'portable' folder has this entry :

[skins2] # Skinnable Interface
# Skin to use (string)
skins2-last=vlc_deepdark.vlt

VLC seems to accept relative paths (here at least). I have vlc_deepdark.vlt in the same directory as vlc.exe and it works OK.

Also with 3.0.0, no files/dirs left anywhere else. But creates a QT reg key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\QtProject\OrganizationDefaults\FileDialog

I run vlc from a NSIS exe which deletes that key after VLC exits.

zorro on 2018-02-12 13:18

..at least with "native skin" there's no QT-Key left behind - I just checked it. When activating alternative skins, the Key appears but can be handled with a batch or portable starter like gbrao mentioned.

zorro on 2018-03-01 12:05

"Download the ZIP-Package" in description is a bit misleading: fuzzing around with the scripted download-button, you won't find a ZIP. At least I didn't find it.
Simpler: select "our FTP archive" under "older versions" (lefthand, underneath the small slideshow) - there you also find the newest versions as ZIP.
