It is available on main webpage.. if instead you open the sourceforge page, click "ArcThemALL! Web Page..." link in Description to move to main webpage..

jrgermann on 2011-11-14 17:53

Thanks, Lupo73, for that info. Looks like the download link should point to the Sourceforge link that comes from the website page.

__philippe on 2017-03-26 23:45

ArcThemALL sorely lacks a critical "List" option to examine an archive contents BEFORE launching
any decompression operation.

Voted Down.

Brickbats accepted/Vote reverted in case this option were demonstrated to be available after all...;-)

PureRa v1.7

I am Baas on 24 Sep 2013
  • 75KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

PureRa removes files from your computer that other mainstream cleaning programs tend to overlook. Some of the targets can simply be removed to create some valuable space while others are removed in an attempt to repair certain problems because they will simply recreate themselves. Targets that are currently removed by PureRa are: Config.msi, Thumbs.db, Iconcache.db, .sqm-files, Desktop.ini etc.

This is a great little tool, I do agree with Anonymous that some of the cleaning options are usually pointless as they will be recreated by the OS anyway, but it's always nice to have a tool that can do a deeper scrubbing than most other tools. I don't use PureRa often, but when I do, its because I want it done all the way.

ViperTech on 2010-03-09 09:56

@Anon Yes it Cleans files that are not used but Also It Cleans ALL of them off of your system. Some of the files olny are created WHEN the particular folder gets opened.

In this case there are very good chance that many of the files removed are for folders that are rarely accesed and therefor may not be made again. Also there is the matter of fragmentation and wasted inodes (yes Inodes is the wrong term but its the closest to what I'm thinking right now)

Over all this is a pretty good tool and very usefull.

Best use for this. Do a good disc clean then Defrag your system.

Who ever knew there was so much junk lying around!

"If you are looking for SE-Explorer, SE-DesktopApps, etc., then we want to inform you that at present we've stopped the development." from web site. http://www.se-soft.com/lang/en/

@PAFuser: it's unfortunate what some people think is obsolete. There are a whole lot of very old programs on my machine that still do a way better job than available alternatives.

PAFuser on 2017-06-29 19:30

I do not disagree, I still use Excel 2003, and it took some work to get it to work correctly on Windows 10 - 64 bit. If program is all you need and works, great. SE-Explorer zip contains SE-MediaPlayer, does not work. Context menu limited to SE-Explorer list, unlike FreeCommanderXE, etc. which include context items added to Windows menu. Future development might have changed this.

Universal Silent Switch Finder v1.5.0.0

webfork on 19 Jun 2016
  • 999KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by Midas

Universal Silent Switch Finder attempts to find often undocumented program switches that enable a "silent" or no-user-action software install. This is useful for administrators installing software remotely or users who want to skip the process of installation.

Note: Softpedia reports that the program is better with .MSI files than .EXE installation files.

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.
