Faust, Daniel Feenberg is (according to LinkedIn) currently an IT Director at the National Bureau of Economic Research, so Wikipedia's label of "economist" appears to be a mistake. Also reference the 2006 NIST Special Publication.... so which computer scientists claim any data can be recovered after one pass? Also, I thought it was generous to write that each cleaner probably finds things the other doesn't and that CCleaner is older and more mature. CCleaner is not a bad tool and certainly does many things well.

Used this to clean up more than 6 gigs of information off a reasonably old Win 7 x64 machine recently. I don't know that it had a major impact on speed, but certainly like that extra 6 gigs. Love this program.

"BleachBit Is the October [2013] Project of the Month [at SourceForge.net].

BleachBit is a nice tool for freeing disk space on Windows and Linux systems. BleachBit also helps to preserve privacy; in this time of privacy concerns, it might be something you want to check out. It's even caught the attention of computer security Technologist Bruce Schneier in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/05/nsa-how-to-remain-secure-surveillance) and in Wired (http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/10/149481/).

WebBrowserPassView v1.56 Updated

Checker on 19 Sep 2014

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (4.0 - 10.0), all versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera and SeaMonkey. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

jPortable v7 Update 71 Updated

Checker on 21 Oct 2014
  • 103MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Checker

jPortable (formerly Java Portable) allows you to easily add a Java runtime environment to your portable device. It can be used in combination with jPortable Launcher to open Java JAR programs (many with their settings made portable) or used automatically with Java-enabled apps like PortableApps.com versions of LibreOffice and OpenOffice as well as web browsers like Chrome/Chromium, Opera, SeaMonkey and Firefox.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware / Partially Open Source
How to extract: Download the EXE and install to the folder CommonFiles\Java relative to the applications that use Java. For example:
  • If you have installed LibreOffice to Z:\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
  • Similarly, if you have installed the Java Portable Launcher in Z:\PortableApps\JavaPortableLauncher, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
Java programs can be launched via batch files as well (thanks to user bro).

I've got jPortable working with X-LibreOffice as well. :)

E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib>dir /a
Volume in drive E is OHJELMAT
Volume Serial Number is A4D5-8D47

Directory of E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib

02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> .
02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> ..
30.01.2011 10:36 <DIR> 7za
02.03.2011 20:19 <JUNCTION> Java [E:\CommonFiles\Java]
0 File(s) 0 bytes
4 Dir(s) 12 645 406 208 bytes free

The trick is that E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java is a junction that points to E:\CommonFiles\Java. This way the content of E:\CommonFiles\Java shows up in E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java.

freakazoid: jPortable can work independently of PA programs, including muCommander and some others I've tested. I tried to edit the entry to help give some idea of how to make that work.

Opera Settings Import & Export Tool v0.993

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013
  • 524KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Hydaral

Opera Settings Import & Export Tool allows backup and restore of
your bookmarks, mail, contacts, sessions, preferences, etc. and enables
easy transfer of them between Opera installations in different folders
or OSs.

The program can find all profiles on your system, good for finding
"lost" profiles, then lets you preview your settings before importing or exporting. Additionally you can cleanly transfer individual settings
without the cruft that can build up in an Opera profile folder, as well
as storing settings files in their original state so your exported
settings can always be manually restored.

Also available for Linux, and your settings can be transferred between OSs.

Magibon on 2011-04-07 19:07

thank you very much!
i have been looking for a tool like this that was compatible with Opera :)

i was swapping the "Profile" folder, but that's quite crude.

Great find!

Advanced Onion Router v0.3.0.20

Midas on 11 Jun 2014
  • 10MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Vector

Advanced Onion Router is designed to bypass various barriers with a secure, anonymous Internet connection. The program attempts to circumvent firewalls, website censorship, web tracking tools, and more. Allows user of almost any application that connects to the Internet. Unlike similar clients that require a configurable proxy, AOR is able to "force" a program to use the Tor network.

Note: Instructions for making Tor editions of Opera, Firefox, and Chat are included in the "Help" directory.

Category:
System Requirements: WinAll / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Various Open Source
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch AdvOR.exe.

Optionally, go to the "System" menu in options and check "Try to write to disk less frequently". This is ideal for increasing the life of drives running from flash memory.

I've tested out several programs and this is still my program of choice for the Tor network. Very lucky to have it.
