Thanks Guido76. It's still labelled as 8.0.5 but it's a new version and working here too

Emka on 2017-03-04 13:44

It doesn't display some German special characters correctly (e.g. ß), and more importantly, it shows a "buy the pro version" nagscreen upon exit and opens the product homepage in the system's standard browser.

Guido76 on 2017-03-04 14:30

Emka, you're right. Some problems with the French language too. And a very annoying nag-screen, and automatic launch of the browser. Too bad!
I will try to see this with the author, but I suppose that is part of his strategy to force the sale of the Pro version, so there is only little chance to make him change his mind!

SRWare Iron v59.0.3100.0 Updated

billon on 23 Jun 2017
  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Jun 2017
  • Suggested by freakazoid

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information as compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

Alternative packages:

  • Iron Portable (adds password portabilization, path portabilization, registry cleanup and Java support)
  • X-Iron (idem)

version 45: No flash support whatsoever. It also disables all but a two plugins. I understand this is a security issue, however, if you do need Flash, this is not the browser for you. You cannot add Flash support to version 45 of Iron. The former plug-ins do not work, and the latest download which would be supported in Iron contains malware, checked by over 40 different engines and cannot be installed if you have ANY anti-malware engine running. If you don't, be aware you're installing malware. If you have no need for Flash or most other browser plug-ins, feel free, you'll be secure (but missing quite a bit of content.)

Alternatives: Do not update to 45. Install 43, which still supports the (old) flash players (be they however insecure.)
Chrome itself has a built in alternative to Flash in the latest version. Maybe someone will figure out how to "port" this to Iron without doing a bunch of stuff in file explorers etc.
Note: trying to install the latest Adobe Flash for Firefox crashed my XP system, XP is basically no longer supported with version 19. the latest update to Flash 18 works, however.
I have Flash disabled on all but two sites which use the older version just fine.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\metadata

TurnedOnTimesView v1.30 Updated

  • 137KB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by Checker

TurnedOnTimesView analyses the Windows event log, detecting the time ranges when your computer was turned on. For those time frames, startup/shutdown time, duration, shutdown reason, type, and process, as well as shutdown code are all displayed.

The program works on your local computer as well as from remote computer on your network if you have privileges to view the Windows event log remotely. Although primarily for system administrators, it can also help track down system issues and in testing.

What's new?
  • Added:
    • 'Last System Event Time' column, which displays the time of the last system event before the computer was turned off. This column is useful when there is no shutdown event and the 'Shutdown Time' column is empty;
    • 'Save All' (Shift+Ctrl+S).
  • When there is no shutdown event ('Shutdown Time' is empty), the duration is now calculated according to the 'Last System Event Time'.
  • When event 41 from Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power is detected ('The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first'), the 'Shutdown Type' column now displays 'Unexpected Shutdown'.
  • Fixed issue: Under certain circumstances, TurnedOnTimesView detected the turn on/off events incorrectly because the algorithm assumes that the events are sorted by their timestamp, but in some cases they are not... TurnedOnTimesView now sorts the events by their timestamp before processing them to ensure that the turn off/on detection algorithm works correctly. Be aware that due to this change the loading process might be slower and consume more memory.

Very light and fast, but it didn't want to send my mails. Maybe it's because of not so much to set in account settings.

A stable version 1.90 seems to be available as well as a 2.00 beta. However, somewhere in the 1.90 changelog it says that it writes to the registry.

Realist on 2016-10-26 09:24

I am using this for almost an year and I recommend this software to everybody.
It's really easy to use and has good enough no. of features.

Here is one trick - minimize it to tray and right-click on the icon. It will show the latest recipient's email id's.

@webfork: Yes, that solved it. I just copied the plugin folder from the old Notepad++ to the new one. Good for me i kept a backup.

Fixitman on 2016-10-17 14:07

I use the following version (on XP) and see no need to update it.
If you're having problems try the old version (your problems might then be attributed to an updated OS such as Windows 7 or later, which I refuse to use, especially the buggiest of them all, Windows 10)
I see comments above about file extensions, but I've NEVER had that problem, don't those people do the "save as" button? This version has that.
When on Linux I don't need this, as it has its own text editors that are better than anything Microsoft ever issued, to start with!

"December 19 2010-- Notepad++ v5.8.6
In this new release, a minimalist package is added.
It contains only the files needed to run Notepad++ with no plugins, no themes, no autocompletion API files, no auto-updater and no localization files.
The package is much smaller and Notepad++ will run faster."

This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

masterjedi on 2014-02-25 04:04

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

Bill, thanks for the feedback! I've never tested it on such a large amount of files, because I usually apply the "Pre-Filter" by size to speed up the search dramatically (e.g. > 2 MB). I'm quite sure this issue can be fixed by chopping the data to be analyzed into smaller portions. Will do some research and for sure fix it for v1.7 :)...

2. The portable option has been reinstated.
3. I just wanted to snip unwanted sections; this did it simply and intuitively.
I find "more advanced" editors get confusing.

Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!

What perplexes me about this program is its clandestine development. If one opens its history page:
http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~gakana/tablacus/history/
one will see that "Fix minor bugs" & "Minor changes" prevail but there are no details whatsoever about them.

xor on 2016-09-26 20:13

Usage of Tablacus suits me better than Q-Dir, but it started to suffer that typical 98% CPU wacko thing that chased me away, Q-Dir also continues to be buggy since XP up to Win10 at refreshing the folders tree after deletion, renaming, etc (some times). I'm started to get suited with Double commander although still missing Drag-Select.

ripu on 2016-10-14 14:42

@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

Thank you, Midas. I will start to see the forum more closely. I only read the feeds here using QuietRSS and I never see the forum. I'll do it from now on. As always, you are an excellent indication for new applications and utilities.

(obrigado, Midas. eu começarei a ver o forum com mais atenção. eu somente leio os feeds aqui usando QuietRSS e nunca vejo o forum. eu farei isso daqui para frente. Como sempre, você é uma excelente indicação para novas aplicações e utilitários.)

Desaster. It broke my Windows system beyond repair. Several programs won't start anymore. Office and Windows lost their service packs. Updates fail, same with restore points. Error messages all over the place.
