@ misan: If you klick on the little "?"-icon behind "Stealth" ...

What makes an application "stealth"?

For the purpose for this website, "stealth" means when an application is launched, used and terminated properly, it does not leave behind any entries in the registry or filesystem. Certain exceptions are permitted. For example, registry entries that are created/updated by Windows for the application (eg. MRU entries for dialog boxes, DirectX entries for DirectX-based apps), or temp files created in the official "Temp" folders are not taken into consideration. Note: "Stealth" does not mean non-traceability! In fact, it is quite unlikely you can hide your activities on a Windows machine from a capable system administrator.

I tested SimplyZip on
It has 34 viruse checkers. Only 2 of them said it was suspicous.

I hate false positives !

FileVerifier++ v0.6.3.5830

billon on 14 Jul 2016
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 May 2010
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileVerifier++ checks and compares files to see if they have been modified. Supports drag-and-drop, recursive directory processing, patterns, color coding, export to a variety of hashing formats (.sfv, .md5, .csv, etc.) and more. Can use any of 21 different hashing algorithms such as CRC16 for speed and SHA-512 for security (uses the standard MD5 by default).

The program (ZIP version) will automatically ask to create verification files with relative pathways, which is much more portable.

Win2K users should use an earlier version. A beta 64-bit version is available.

System requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL v2
How to extract: Download the ZIP package ( and extract to a folder of your choice. Delete files fvshell.dll, winfvc.exe; fvc.exe, fvc-batch.cmd, fvc-batch.js. Launch fv.exe.

What's new? Applied:
  • A workaround for a condition causing a brief delay in the program exit on certain systems.
  • A situation where the program would crash upon recalculating or verifying a list where a significant number of files are skipped initially.
  • A situation where the program will crash upon writing lists with entries with dates prior to 1/1/1970. Any dates prior to this will be set to 1/1/1970. This restriction will be lifted in future versions.

A little intimidating at first, but so far looks like the best file verification tool I've tried yet. Fast, recursive directory verify, open source, relative pathways, and multiple different verification methods? Dream come true for making sure your data hasn't changed or corrupted. Recommend MD5 for general file verification and SHA 256 for security verifications.

FV++ Author on 2011-04-28 21:10

There is a version of FV++ that works with Windows 2000. The version is v0.6.4.6010 (it is under fileverifier-testing). While several of the icons do not render properly under Win2K, it is functional.

Also, there is no functional difference between the installed version and the ZIP version, at least in terms of the program itself. The executables are identical. What makes a FV++ installation portable is the presence of the fv.cfg file in the installation directory. There are no differences besides this and the lack of an installer.

Jpg+FileBinder v1.0

smaragdus on 13 Jun 2017
  • 383KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 May 2010
  • Suggested by anonimice

Jpg+FileBinder is able to hide files in a picture file by merging one of three compressed file types (.zip, .rar, .7z) with an ordinary JPEG image file. This basic steganography makes the compressed file look like any other JPEG image file to the operating system and any image viewer. Meanwhile, if users try to open the file using WinRAR or 7-Zip, the compressed files will appear.

This may be used as a camouflage for information or to help transfer non-image format files through image hosting-only services. Note that this program does not include encryption by default and only joins image files and archive files. To enable security, use password-protection provided by your compression program.

System requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: None
Dependencies: None
Stealth: ? Yes

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Jpg+FileBinder.exe.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Jul 2016
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 May 2010
  • Suggested by DigeratiPrime

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from a wide variety of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages (such as Nullsoft, Wise, Inno Setup, etc). Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process. Note that the original developer no longer updates the program so some manual updates may be required.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: license restrictions are present on included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE, but can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software. See website for more information.

System requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. Included libraries may write to the registry.
Unicode support: Yes
License: Main program: GPL, Included libraries: various, see note about commercial use
How to extract:
  1. Download the RAR "UniExtract Binary Archive" package and extract using PeaExtractor or a similar tool to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch UniExtract.exe

It's a bit OTT calling this an universal extractor, as many EXE files I try to extract with it, leads to error messages that the so-scalled universal extractor can't extract them.

Numanoid on 2014-11-01 14:32

This programme is in fact pretty much useless, there hasn't been one exe I have tried to extract over the last couple of months, where the so-called Universal Extractor has failed me :-(
