z33k can search, download and play music (mp3) from the huge Dilandau and MP3Skull database. It can even manage "playlist-links". z33k can also play internet radios (Shoutcast).

This is another app that leaves those "tracing" registry entries on my win7x64.
Should we call them stealth or not? Or just make a note about this?

@joby_toss
I believe there was a discussion about those registry keys before but I could not find the thread quickly again. On 64-bit machines there are two tracing locations:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\ (for 64-bit applications)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Tracing\ (for 32-bit applications)

Tracing is disabled by default, but if enabled (EnableFileTracing=1), logs will be saved in %windir%\tracing folder. If you browse to those registry keys, you should find a long list of applications, including QTranslate, SkypePortable, Speccy, RadioSure, Opera, and .... it basically "tells" how to handle error logs for those programs.

Well, from a portability point of view, I would say, these applications are Not Stealth. I am not sure how to deal with it DB entry wise as it seems to be a Win 7 issue only. Opinions?

How about adding that info in the stealth section of the app's listing?
Something like [On x64 windows, creates a few registry keys, thus considered not stealth] (?)
There are quite a lot of applications that behave differently on x64 windows

z33k (v4.0-BETA) available ! Happy new year ! Enjoy ! Donate to support & get no limited version !
I completely rewrote the code of z33k with some new cool features... It's not finished yet & there might be some bugs...
Radio and tagging seem to have been added. Uncompressed and Zip download are now available beside rar download. It's still listed as Public Domain on SourceForge, but doesn't the announcement sound like it was going to go payware?
