Geek Uninstaller helps keep your machine clean and organized by removing more traces left behind by standard uninstalls. Minimalistic interface displays recently installed/modified (since the last run of Geek Uninstaller) programs highlighted purple or orange. Includes support for removing programs that normally resist uninstallation.

When running on x64 Windows, Geek Uninstaller is running as native 64-bit application.

Note: This program's portability status is in question.

KeePass is a password manager that helps you store and manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database locked with a single master key or a key file. The database is encrypted using the AES algorithm and the program includes a strong automatic password generator, expire dates, customized icons and categories and much more.

Note that available plug-ins may not be portable.

Note: KeePass Classic is also available with fewer features, but does not require DotNet. See edition comparison.

@Mixture: confirmed. I just tested with the Twofish plugin. It just saves a DLL file rather than settings but other plugins likely have additional options that would not be saved locally. I'll add a note to the entry.

Mixture on 2017-01-09 18:36

Great! Now that a new and native encryption algorithm, ChaCha20, and a new password hash, Argon2, has been added in version 2.35, I changed my database settings to include the new high security features. Now, if only someone will add more native high security features to KeePass 2.xx.

webfork on 2017-01-24 01:13

@Mixture - Although ChaCha20 is listed in the release notes as an encryption algorythm, I think this is actually a random number generator. While that's part of good crypto and the program is probably more secure as a result, I wouldn't describe the 2.xx series as insecure.

FileOptimizer v11.20 Updated

billon on 12 Oct 2017
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder

fyi new website
"PasswordSafe's official website is now at https://pwsafe.org/ "

IanFromBarrie on 2017-04-01 03:52

This version does not run on XP. The last version that did is 3.38.02, which can be accessed from sourceforge through the download page on the pwsafe.org site. There was some suggestion last year that 3.40 might be fixed to run on XP, but not so far, it seems

@billon
The portable x64 version (Q-Dir_Portable_x64.zip) is available for download.

Mithril on 2016-03-27 20:53

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

penthe on 2016-12-30 15:28

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.
