aka Muttley, try to disconnect 5 USB devices using that method and then try to disconnect the same 5 USB devices with this program. Then you'll see the difference... It's just much easier, and requires less clicks in diferent places! ;)

I'm using this program for over 8 months without any problem.
It works great, a run an autoit script that close Pstart and other custom programs from my USB drive and then executes the USB Disk Ejector.

@ vmars316: Alternate (Data) Streams are a data structure for holding additional structured data within a file in addition to the main data.
The Windows NTFS file system allows so-called Alternate Data Streams (ADS). With this function, data can be stored invisibly tied by the user to a file.

goodsignal on 2016-10-17 17:54

Dropbox had a bug a while back (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Syncing-and-uploads/com-dropbox-attributes/m-p/63351) and polluted every file with an alternate data stream. Any copy action thereafter from our NTFS drive to a thumb drive (usually FAT32) was interrupted by a warning, "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties?" Very annoying! AlternateStreamView quickly and easily fixes the problem, as discovered here (http://superuser.com/questions/814312/is-it-possible-to-remove-the-are-you-sure-you-want-to-copy-this-file-without-it)

allclownsareevil on 2012-07-30 20:05

I suspect the reason people are claiming this doesn't work is because they are using the proprietary software that came bundled with their wifi card. This only works if you allow Windows to control your wireless network profiles.

Also you need to be doubly aware that most Anti Virus products will see this utility as a threat.

only problem i run into with this wonderful app is it doesn't work for all apps.

Ruby on 2011-06-22 16:00

@Magibon

I find that RegFromApp will only capture reg writes if the app your monitoring is actually doing the writing.

Let's say your monitoring an app/installer that creates a 'Working directory' e.g. %temp%/MonitoredApp and dumps some files that now write to the registry, these writes do not get captured because the monitored app is not doing the writing.

How I find RegFromApp useful:

1. In concert with Regshot: RegFromApp will only capture writes from the program not the system.

2. Capture and Export: I use Chromium web browser and pass args on the command line to keep all files in the app directory e.g. --user-data-dir=.\
The only problem is that when I "Make Chromium my Default Browser" it doesn't transfer the command line to the registry.

By starting Chromium from/within RegFromApp as an admin I can capture these reg entries and export for editing (search and replace) with a text editor and add the command line and merge back into the registry.

rb161 on 2020-07-27 22:17

Having used it for many years, Filezilla has lost its way now in my opinion. The irritating pop up balloon on every successful upload is just one of the annoyances. The latest update seemed to corrupt something on my Windows and I was reduced to about one fifteenth of the normal upload speed. Going back to an ancient version hasn't fixed the issue and the portable versions are the same. However WinSCP works fine so it's that for me from now on.

is there a way for this program to read an Outlook (not outlook express) address book listbox of type OUTEXVLB? I do not get anything at the bottom of the screen. I have tried it with around 200,000 items and with about 800 items and nothing shows up. Is it because this program does not support this particular listbox/window???

Thanks for the great tool!

v1.50 now has a drag and drop button taht you drop on the window you want to see the text from. It makes this very valuable the tool so much easier and intuitive to use. An excellent upgrade, imo.

Unfortunately, it still does not seem to handle Outexvlb type listboxes.

This is by FAR the ABSOLUTE BEST recovery software I've ever used. I do wish that it had a window interface... but it just recovered files that would've taken me 2 hours to recreate. Fantastic. (By the way... I tried 3 other favorites including RECUVA before using this. None of them worked. This did. I think RECUVA probably would've worked with a deep scan, but I don't have the 2 hours to sit and wait for that hope!)

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.

Other available portable versions:

  • Still - more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities
  • Legacy - for WinXP/Vista users (unsupported)

The program is cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros) and supports a variety of extensions.

I have tried and used several search apps before and was not very impressed but as soon as I saw that this product was from NirSoft I knew I had to try it. NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.

Because of the different strategies of most defrag apps you can do more false then right:
if you're using Vista/7/8 use the build-in defragmenter on a regular basis,
if you use XP my favourite is DiskDefrag on a regular basis,
if you defragment your hard disk, please use only one app for it.

I'm not a 'fanboy' of Auslogics DiskDefrag or any of their other products.

Great for bare bones Windows PE, it runs without any dependencies, it seems, very useful in x64, too bad it's not supported anymore...

Gwennel Doc v0.15

  • 359KB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by Cornflower

Gwennel is a lightweight word processor that takes an innovative approach to formatting options by separating them into a tree-like structure. This is useful for handling long documents with clear, organized formatting tools or for users who wish to focus on the text first and formatting second. Any style changes (such as headings, lists, or colors) are propagated throughout the entire document and, although only able to open and save OpenDocument (.odt) files, this makes the program a capable WYSIWYG editor. Additionally, users can open existing files and make rapid changes to the entire document.

It is not at all intuitive, but once you play with it a bit, It comes together.
I probably won't use it on my own computers where Open Office Portable is much handier, but as I like to keep my usb key light, I keep it there. Hint: go over your Open Office documents and see what styles you like to use, and update the openoffice-style.gwen template. I found this makes it more user friendly, as I am dealing with my own tastes.

CSVfileView v2.20 released as of 23-SEP-2015

Changelog

* Version 2.20:
o Added 'Display Filter' option (F2). The display filter is
somewhat similar to the SQL WHERE clause, for example... The
following filter will instruct CSVFileView to display only lines with
'Yes' value in the Connected column and the 'Device Name' column
contains a 'USB' string:
Connected = 'Yes' AND 'Device Name' CONTAINS 'USB'
o Added 'Load Filter' option to the 'Advanced Open' window. It's
similar to the 'Display Filter' feature, but instead of filtering the
file after it's already loaded , the load filter skip items during
the loading process, so the file will be loaded faster and
CSVFileView will consume less memory.
o Added 'First line contains column names' and 'Automatically
detect the delimiter and quotes characters' options to the 'Advanced
Open' window.
o Added /aload command-line option, for loading a file according to
the 'Advanced Open' settings.
o You can now specify any variable inside the CSVFileView.cfg file
as a command-line parameter, for example... In order to turn off the
'First Line Contains Column Names' option:

In case (like me) you're left wondering what is this good for, here's a quote from the Wikipedia relevant article:

"ESE is notably a core of Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory. Its purpose is to allow applications to store and retrieve data via indexed and sequential access. Windows Mail and Desktop Search in the Windows Vista operating system also make use of ESE to store indexes and property information respectively."

Well that sure clears that up lol, but really like many apps a user has a need and finds a solution that works for them and then passes along their work for others to freely use. In my mind that's the way its supposed to be.

@freakzoid: the "Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey" may be what you're looking for: https://addons.mozilla.org/sk/seamonkey/addon/classic-firefox-theme-for-seam/ ...

I use both this and the SeaFox extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/sea-fox/) and after some further tweaking, I am pretty satisfied with the results.

freakazoid on 2017-01-08 08:44

I use SeaFox as well, but I just use the Default theme.

Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey doesn't really make much of a difference in my layout, except a few icon changes.

Speaking of icons, use the Classic Toolbar Buttons addon to change some of the default icons. It doesn't change the Bookmark, RSS or Tab Throbber icons though.

ImageCacheViewer v1.20

billon on 31 Aug 2018
  • 103KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Aug 2018
  • Suggested by Checker

ImageCacheViewer scans the cache of your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Pale Moon, SeaMonkey, Google Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Vivaldi and Yandex) and lists the images displayed in the recently visited Web sites. For every cached image file, program displays the URL of the image, browser used, image type, image and browsing date/time and file size. Selecting an image from this list shows the image in the lowe rpane and you can copy the image to the clipboard (Ctrl+M) for pasting elsewhere.

The program is useful for getting around some image protection schemes, web development testing and tracking down a specific image when you're not sure of its associated website.

Note: The author recommends closing all windows of your Web browser before using to ensure that all files are saved to the disk. Additionally, the program won't work if the browser is configured to clear its cache on closing (for privacy or space reasons).

@thepiney: Same here. I've used magnet links no problem. The only time I've had errors is when the program loses access to the downloaded torrent files while it's still trying to share them (if you deleted or moved the downloaded files without deleting the torrent file). I moved from uTorrent because they started adding advertising, but there are settings tweaks to remove it.

JudyGarland on 2019-12-05 06:31

Qbittorrent does not support Windows XP and Vista anymore from v.4.2.0, though 'portableapps' seems not aware of that.
Please update 'System Requirements' section.

SmartSniff is a network analysis/diagnostic tool that allows you to capture TCP/IP packets that pass through your network adapter. You can view the captured data as sequence of conversations between clients and servers in ASCII mode (for text-based protocols, like HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and FTP) or as hex dump (for non text-based protocols, like DNS).

On Win2K or above, SmartSniff is able to capture TCP/IP packets using raw sockets. This method has some limitations and problems, but it does not require any additional installation. A better way to capture TCP/IP packets is to install the open-source WinPcap capture driver, functional on Windows 98 and later.

Pale Moon is for those that want to get work done, with as little time as possible lost to the eternal quest to locate moved, missing or deleted features that are too common in other browsers at every update. As for all browsers, sometimes pages are not rendered correctly and if so, I just jump briefly to a different browser - but I always end up returning to Pale Moon. In recent years the collection of Pale Moon-specific add-ons has increased dramatically, making it a fine substitute for Firefox.

ShellMenu View is great for eliminating unwanted menu items when right-clicking. Definitely worth the price ($0.00!)
Here's a post we did on ShellMenu View- http://www.softwarecrew.com/2011/05/keep-the-context-menu-in-order-with-shellmenuview/
