  • Suggested by Ennovy

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.

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.

USB Oblivion v1.11.5.0 Updated

  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 17 Sep 2017

USB Oblivion erases all traces of USB-connected drives and CD-ROMs from the registry. Since Windows keeps a record of all devices attached, this is useful both for privacy and for users who prefer "stealth" software.

Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? No. Creates setupapi.app.log in Windows\inf during run but then removes it.

Is the website down, of there is no more links to the original project?

@rmarier: the "Website" link above works for me; just in case you still can't access the main site, you may want to try http://sourceforge.net/projects/usboblivion/ ...

LibreOffice Portable v5.4.1 Updated

billon on 15 Sep 2017
  • 493MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Sep 2017
  • Suggested by JohnTHaller

LibreOffice is a complete productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, database, drawing tool and more. Includes strong compatibility for 100s of file formats including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio etc). The program is similar to OpenOffice, a program that it was derived from, but has added many new features and improvements.

LibreOffice Portable is a special build developed in conjunction with the publisher. A "Still" version that's more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities is available via the website link. On systems without Java installed, some functions such as document creation wizards and the Base database application etc. can be enabled by adding jPortable, though this is optional and can be skipped if those functions are not needed. Alternatively, X-LibreOffice is also available.

Cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros) and supports a variety of extensions. A more stable "Still" version is available from the website link.

XP users: v.5.4.0 Rev 2 is the last supported version.

As many knows, LibreOffice Portable from PortableApps.com takes a long time to startup. On my system it takes 13 seconds from a fresh boot.
X-LibreOffice takes 4 seconds, from a fresh boot, so to all of You who
wants the portable version to start faster, use X-LibreOffice from WinPenPack.com.
Calc, Writer and the other stuff also loads faster with X-LibreOffice.

JohnTHaller on 2015-06-20 23:36

LibreOffice Portable is compressed using UPX to make it a lot smaller (268MB vs X-LO's 523MB for an English install) which also speeds up startup times from the vast majority of external drives. The tradeoff is that it will take a few extra seconds to start off an internal drive vs an uncompressed copy... 3 vs 5 seconds for a cold start on my machine.

CornHolio the Gringo on 2017-08-19 00:06

LibreOffice Portable v5.4.0 is the last version supporting Windows XP.
The portable version made by PortableApps.com is no longer compressed with UPX and is therefore as fast as X-LibreOffice when loading.

And yet, QTranslate v6.3.1.zip portable downloads without a hitch.

That'll teach you even thinking about using an installer...;-)

@__philippe
I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

Just teasing, of course...;-)

Gets worse with every update. Locks up and freezes half the time when trying to use emoticons.

Great app! I use this regularly for my language classes.

webfork on 2017-03-21 01:30

I'm having a lot of problems with this program on Win7x64. It won't minimize, it won't close unless you do an "End Task" in Task Manager, and it doesn't remember me between sessions. Anyone else having issues?
